Default Gran Torino

Instant classic in my book . Absolutley loved this movie . Just watched it tonight after waiting for it to hit dvd.

I thought it was going to be a really good one when i saw the ads for it , then Mark told me about it and said it was " OK" so i was kinda nervous it wouldnt live up to my expectations .

Mark was wrong lol , it was ALOT better than OK. Just became one of my favs/.

I agree 100%!!! I LOVED that movie. It was one of those that stuck with me after I watched it, and it takes a lot for a movie to do that for me. The whole theater was crying at the end, not just little tears, but to where you could hear everyone. Even my boyfriend cried a bit, even though he'd kill me if I told anyone. Again.

But yes, great movie. I have been meaning to buy it OnDemand, and maybe I will tonight now!!

I loved it too! Great performance by Clint Eastwood who makes this not so likable character in the beginning of the movie into a hero in the end.

I laughed almost the entire movie. It was better than I thought it'd be. I'd watch it a few more times.

This was more like a comedy drama. It's kinda like watching Full Metal Jacket when the drill sargent is blasting the heck out of all the privates. I know it's meant to be serious, but it's still so funny.

Great movie ... we were talking about this the other day ... Eastwood was a genius in it ... i was also laughing at the fact that it didn't seem that Clint had to do much rehearsing when it came to using those racial slurs ... seems like he was a natural .. LOL

I know, me too!! Some parts were just too funny!!

And was it just me, or did Clint Eastwood sound like Christian Bale's Batman?? Or as my boyfriend corrected me, Christian Bale sounded like Eastwood, lol.
