Itty Bitty Movie Review

Gran Torino was awesome. Clint Eastwood is a genius. His character is extremely racist, yet somehow very endearing. I now want a Gran Torino, please.

Note to Self: No seriously, it's worth the first-born child you have to pay to go to the movies these days (except for me, because the cop and I get a police discount - woohoo!).

I've been so busy lately, I haven't been able to do much blog reading. I FINALLY got caught up on your posts I've missed. Fun reading, as always. And clever. And thought provoking. You certainly are talented.

Oooh, you are the second one I've read saying this was a great movie. And I LOVE Clint Eastwood so I have to see it. Wait, what? Cops get a movie discount? I want to go with you guys next time. LOL.

Hi MJ,

Ooh! A friend of mine had a supped up Gran Torino back in high school. We did so many crazy things in that car that I'm still surprised we lived. Who would have thought that a piece of crap like that vehicle could hit 150 MPH given a long enough stretch of straight road? Dang, and we didn't even wear seat belts! Kids!

Matt - You should. It was great!

SS - Glad you agree!

Kweenmama - Thanks! Glad you got to drop in. come back soon!

Teeni - Yeah, but only he gets a discount. I still have to pay full price. Or rather, he has to pay full price for me : )

Grit - Yeah, and now they want kids to wear helmets for everything! I remember skating down the biggest hill in town, speeding like my hair was on fire, then smacking into the curb at the end and flying twenty yard before landing in the grass. Bah! No helmet, pads, or anything of that junk. It just would have cut down on the wind resistance.

I love Clint Eastwood! I haven't ventured to an actual movie theater in a long time, thanks to the small loan needed to buy tickets anymore, but I'll add this to my Netflix list.
