Clint Eastwood Gran Torino

Movie lovers in my world look forward to Christmas time because they love receiving movies like Clint Eastwood's Gran Torino under the tree. Gran Torino will appeal not only to the Clint Eastwood fans on your list but also to those who like a drama movie that has a good story line.

Right off this movie had me laughing. Eastwood plays a pretty mean old guy in this film and some of the moments were funny...but some were sad, too. Viewers might find themselves laughing and crying but they might also find themselves squirming and cringing in their seats . It is a good story, although not without some violence and plenty of racial slurs. The violence was, as my co-blogger Dianne said, necessary to the story and not gratuitous. The racial issues, part of the times. All of these factors combined to make a very enjoyable movie.

The Amazon Customer Reviews are near perfect for this movie. L. Power wrote, "Gran Torino is the second best movie I have seen this year. Not just for the acting, not just for the directing, but for the storytelling, and the emotional journey on which it takes you, the laughter, the feeling of being gripped, and its more surprising moments."

With reviews like that, I don't think you can go wrong choosing this movie. If you are looking for a great movie for the movie lovers on your Christmas list, this might be just the ticket.
