Default Grand Torino

The wife & I just got back from the movies... we watched Grand Torino. Had a date night w/no kids too (rare). You guys see that movie?? It was rough, but it was a great story.

Default I loved that movie

I also just saw Grand Torino last week at the show with the wife. In my opinion that movie is the best entertainment that has come out of Hollywood in over 18 years! I feel that clint has not lost his edge in this one. The cussing you are likely referring to, is just clear english to me this day and age. I didn't think that I would be the only person to walk out of that theater with a big smile of satisfaction.

Thanks Clint for the great entertainment
P.S. Signsbyesa, The Torino is ok, there was an agreement with Clint on that particular item. :lol:

Yup rare night for the wife and I also,date night and watched the movie with no kids.
Clint's a great actor,love his movie's,thought he would retire and enjoy life but he's probably like the most of us. We'll be doing things we enjoy until we can't.

Yeah, I don't want to give it away either... you gotta see it!! What I meant by "rough" was the plot... the language... but you could not have a movie like that in Michigan w/o it. It was perfect for Clint... he nailed that part well.
