Gran Torino

This evening, Emily and I went to see Gran Torino with some friends.

To put it simply, this movie is incredible. It’s smart, funny, moving, passionate…It’s a film that inspires and challenges you. It makes you laugh at times and at others it brings you to tears (though, I’m a man so I refrained from shedding any tears).

I had heard some complaints going into the film that Eastwood growled too much throughout the film. Well, first…it totally fits the character he plays. Secondly, it’s pretty much classic Clint Eastwood. Finally, Eastwood gave an incredible performance…definitely deserving of some prestigious awards (though snubbed by some).

I don’t want to be one of those jerks that gives away the whole film. So, again, I’ll simply tell you to go see this film.

For those who are easily offended by course language…you have been warned.
