The movie - Gran Torino
I watched this at the theater tonight. It was a great movie. Great plot, and funny, to boot. It stars Clint Eastwood, and he didn't disappoint. The ending was shocking, and had chicks in the theater crying, while the guys' jaws were on the floor.
The movie is Rated R, for some violence, and language throughout. This is not a movie for kids. It was 116 minutes long.
In the movie, Eastwood plays Walt Kowalski, a retired auto worker, and iron-willed and inflexible Korean War veteran living in a changing world, who is forced by his immigrant neighbors to confront his own long held prejudices. You can read more here:
The plot doesn't even do the movie justice. Check out the video trailer on the official site. I am officially nominating this movie for an Oscar!

Saw the movie today. I thought it was excellent for two reasons.
1. The PC mold was thrown right out the window. Everyone in the theater (both genders and at least three races from what I saw) showed that they appreciate honesty over political correctness.
2. I turned thirty today. I love Clint, but damn he made me look real young today.

Oh yea this movie was great, i would recommend everyone go see it. Like five-0 said, the movie throws that pussy/candyass/crybaby PC right out the window which is great to see in a movie now-a-days.
