I didn't see this yet but I'm kinda interested. Anyone watch this yet? How was it?
this is what the films basically about:
QUOTE
Eastwood's Walt Kowalski is a Korean War veteran and retired auto worker, a grumpy old man and the last white guy holding on to his property in an inner-city neighborhood that's been taken over by Asian-Americans.

don't feel like explaining to someone who doesn't share my humor since your not worth it.

you might as well go see it because if you want to go watch films only if it's with someone else, you'll never watch any movies in the theater.

Agreed. That pretty much sums up Gran Torino in a nut shell.

watched it last night. it was good. the Asian boy being called a pussy pretty much sums up the accuracy.
Overall, I think the gang bangers were a lot better at acting then the kid. I don't think he really has the chance in acting. You can tell just by the way he talks that it doesn't matter how many takes you have to do with him, that's just how he talks but then again, his bad acting made his character seem pretty genuine.

It's Asians. What do you expect?

Yao Ming gets into the NBA All-Star $hit by a landslide, due to votes. Where do you think it's coming from? :|

IT WAS BORING!

I only watched the whole movie because they had some Hmong people in there. The Hmong stuff were pretty cool but not everything was accurate.
