I'd love to comment on the Gran Torino review, but a forum hasn't been enabled
Was Carla's review so thorough that it is the be all and end all of movie criticism regarding Eastwood's latest?
I just basically wanted to say that my wife, my 27-year-old son, and I found this movie to be very entertaining and think it is probably one of Eastwood's best. It did move a little slow in parts, but I tend to have the attention span of a gnat on meth these days. We though the criticism of the Hmong as being without acting talent was unfounded, and that Lee Vang's portrayal of Walt's little buddy Thao was reminiscent of Haley Joel Osment's character in Second Hand Lions.
Good review, though I'm not sure a master like Eastwood was being unintentionally funny. We got quite a few laughs out of Walt Kowalski's interactions and opinions of the Hmong.
The Coaster Clan gives this film six thumbs up.
Great. Now it seems I've said everything here I have to say about that movie and when comments are enabled in the proper forum, I'll have nothing. NOTHING!
