    My film journey has been an odd one. I've covered this before but essentially I stuck to one genre, 80's and 90's action, and watched the shit out of it. Gran Torino is a film that my former self would have never considered for a second and today was the day I decided to check it out.

    This tale was just fantastic. A Korean war vet, scarred by atrocities from the conflict, is nearing the end of his life. The…

    Great movie, that Jesus pose at the end annoyed me though.

    Based Clint Eastwood shows he is both a great actor and a director.
    I didn't like the Asian kid's acting but it's alright.

    Despite never having been an Eastwood fan, I thoroughly enjoyed every second of this film. It contains one of my recent favorite performances (not to mention characters) of his, and is certainly my favorite film he has directed (that I've seen so far at least). The grittiness of the cinematography certainly captures the essence of the film and the ending is downright heartbreaking. The supporting cast may have been mediocre, but everything else makes up for it.

    Even with all the excessive racial slurs, just a fantastic film.

    I found the performances and a lot of the dialogue to be disappointing. The end was pretty good, though.

    Not the biggest Clint fan but this movie is excellent. Easily his best role for me. Must watch.

    Father Janovich: [eulogizing Walt] Walt Kowalski once said to me that I knew nothing about life or death, because I was an over-educated, 27-year-old virgin who held the hand of superstitious old women and promised them eternity.
    [the congregation chuckles politely and somberly]
    Father Janovich: Walt definitely had no problem calling it like he saw it. But he was right. I knew really nothing about life or death, until I got to know Walt... and boy, did I learn
