I Just Got Back From Seeing Gran Torino

Oscar-worthy flick that was totally ignored by the people who are supposed to actually know what an Oscar-worthy flick looks like.  And Eastwood?  There should be a special place in hell for those who did not vote for him as Best Actor.

Seriously, what were these people thinking when they nominated Brad Pitt?  The guy isn’t good enough to polish Clint’s shoes. Losers, all of them,

Anyway, go see the movie.  It’s two hours well spent.

  1. We saw it last week and I loved it! I wanted to kick someone’s ass when I walked out of the theater, but that was just the Irish in me rearing it’s ugly head after watching a movie that basically starred my father…. who is one mean son-of-a-bitch and I like him that way.

    Eastwood was golden in this. I couldn’t believe that he was not nominated for Best Actor and this film was not nominated for Best Film.

    What does Hollywood know anyway? They probably didn’t want to be viewed as rascist. Pricks.

  2. Go see “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”. It is really, really good. We were going to see Gran Torino tonight but Barb and Brandi are spending what is left of my retirement on the wedding in Memphis now.

  3. Button is almost a scene by scene ripoff of Forest Gump, which was written by the same writer. There is a YouTube out there that shows how the films are the same. I’ll wait till it comes out on DVD. But you gotta see GT . . . it rocks.

  4. Hey TRO… have you heard Britney Spears’ new song? I know how much you love her…

    You may like the message this one sends…

  5. i saw both and gran torino was by far the superior film. clint didn’t have say a word, the expressions you saw in just his eyes were amazing. benjamin “snooze” button was a good film and i enjoyed it, but it’s not in gran torino’s class.

  6. June,

    I tried to listen to it, but my ears starting bleeding before the first chorus. Is that her singing? I think it is just a computer simulation.

  7. The comparison between Gump and Button is bizarre indeed. Here is the video you were talking about. Nutty!

  8. Is it plagerism if you copy your own movie script?

  9. I wasn’t into seeing GT. I thought, “What next, Clint’s going to be in a wheelchair yelling ‘Go ahead, make my day.’ and bust out the oozies?” But I LOVED it. It was so not what I thought it would be. He cracked my ass up in this one. I’m going to buy it when it comes out.
