Gran Torino

Original post made by Dick Givens, Menlo Park, on Jan 19, 2009

Over the years I have read the movie reviews of Ms. Aufmuth. It is apparent that she works diligently at her craft and her opinions are to be respected. It is oviouse that she trys to "get something" or "take something away" from a film and pass it on to the consumer. A life lesson or message perhaps.

This was a great movie!

I will, from this point forward, make my movie choices based on the inverse of what Aufmuth says. [Portion removed due to disrespectful comment or offensive language].

Gran Torino was one of about 4 Eastwood movies that are more than just entertaining or formulaic. it was lacking the hero that was a criminal, element; or the fake fighting where the hero emerges unscathed because he is the hero of the movie. It was one of Eastwood's best with a good message and a truthful critique on what ails the US.
