    Went and saw Gran Torino last night, and it was awesome. Basically, Clint sits on his porch, drinks beer,chews Redman, uses his guns, and is a badass. It gets serious halfway through it and overall turns out to be a sweet movie. I recommend it. Girlfriends and wives might not like it, mine didn't.

    Me and the girlfriend saw it the other day and LOVED it. Great movie. Clint Eastwood's movies are never a let down.

    I actually have a jeep now. Imagine that.
    it made me wanna sit on my front porch, consume beer and tobacco, and be racist and hate everyone. but I think that would be kinda fun, in other words, it gets two thumbs up from me.

    My wife doesn't want to see it 'cause everyone in the newsroom said it sucked. :mad: I don't want to go see it by myself and my daughter is too young to go with me.

    Joedirt, just call up one of your friends and have a sweet man date. It's no homo, especially at a movie like Gran Torino

    Great movie... Eastwood shows his toughside once again.... Eastwood's choice of language (when refering to ethnic groups) cracked me up.
