Gran Torino

Back to posting, and I have some catching up to do.

A couple of weeks ago Jason and I went to see Eastwood’s new movie, Gran Torino. From the title, I would have expected a Fast and Furious type of car movie. And I couldn’t figure out how the hell Clint Eastwood would fit into that.

Anyhoo, I thought it was a pretty decent movie. Simple, well-told story. The characters ride a well-trod road, but they do it well.

By the way, it’s not a car movie. It’s a keeping kids out of gangs movie. You probably knew that already.

Actually I really liked that movie. I saw it online a while ago because someone leaked the screening copy.
I thought it was great and Clint Eastwood was excellent. He was a real salty bastard and really I just want him to be my grandpa now.
