Gran Torino, The Movie by Clint Eastwood - Liberals, Get a Clue!
When will it end? No, not this long movie, the white man's guilt and the quasi race relations messages that most movies strive for these days. Don't you people in Hollywood get it already? Films will never save the day or even begin to improve race relations, ever.
Hey, you guys really want to improve race relations? Join the ACLU! Stick to making lousy movies and a good one every now and then and for the love of God, stop pandering to black folk. They're going to despise you anyway, and you deserve it, so suck it up and "shut the fuck up!" (Just to borrow a damn good line(s) from Julianne Moore in the movie, Assassins.)
That being said, Eastwood is one of my favorite actors and this film is among one of my favorites because it doesn't take itself too seriously. It serves up a strong message about gang violence, racism, and morality, plus it's very funny in a Clint Eastwood kind of way, a lot like Heartbreak Ridge.
Yes, it's worth a few hours of your precious time, despite its preachy undertow.
My next Post will be about author Hampton Side's new book, Hellhound on His Trail - The Stalking of MLK. Look for it on Monday, July 12th.This story is too good to pass up so I hope to Post it soon, and I'll try to bang out the review for "The Things They Carried" this book is also one of my favorites. Sorry folks, been through hell lately, hope to catch up soon.
