The trailer looks pretty good.

Clint Eastwood stars in the drama “Gran Torino,” marking his first film role since his Oscar-winning “Million Dollar Baby.” Eastwood also directs the film in which he plays Walt Kowalski, an iron-willed veteran living in a changing world, who is forced by his immigrant neighbors to confront his own long-held prejudices.

I'm definitely going to see this. And in the theater, I'll pay the $9. I also want that poster. That man is nearly 80 and still looks like he could kick the shit out of half the people on the planet, while making the other half hold his jacket while he did it.

Glen Beck interviewed Mr. Eastwood a short time ago and told Clint he was afraid of him because he knew Clint could kick his butt!!

I have a feeling there is going to be a lot less action than you guys are expecting. My guess is there is going to be a lot of character development a la Million Dollar Baby

Yeah I'm not figuring it will be action packed, but as long as the characters and story are badass I'm cool with it. I LOVE the first Death Wish, and there's only a few shootings in it.

That is one of the best previews I have ever seen. Can you imagine thinking you are the baddest gangbanger on the planet and suddenly you are looking at the bad end of a Garand and the man holding says: "Get off my lawn." How do you live that down?

That is the one and only part I have some reservations about; they'll probably also end the flick with him getting rid of all his weapons.

I always thought that being proud of racism was a bad thing, but apparently it's a cornerstone of American conservatism...

Just to clear up my own view (as I posted an agreement with the quoted poster); yes I do think racism is a bad thing. I was personally referring to how movies with anti-racism messages in them tend to also have a lot of liberal shit piled on top of them, such as guns are bad, violence is never the answer, socialism is good, and so on.



I'm really looking forward to this movie though.

I figured they meant that since Eastwood's character fought Korean's in his youth, he would have some trouble being good friends with them when they first move in.



Sounds sort of logical to me.
 Either way, I will be seeing this film.

Being fed up with the constant barrage of anti-racism messages in film, music, literature and news media does NOT make someone racist - A fact that seems to be lost on most lefties.

Clint Eastwood has a history of civil rights activism.  A theme like that in one of his movies is no surprise.  It's also nice to see that advocating civil rights for all Americans doesn't have to go hand in hand with being a whining liberal pussy.  

Making a movie that has an anti-racism message and also telling Spike Lee to shut his hole makes Clint Eastwood a national treasure in my book, for that reason and a lot of others too.

Why do you think I am a liberal? I'm actually a conservative activist. I bet I've knocked on more doors to ask residents to vote for Republicans, waved more McCain signs for passing cars and coordinated more poltical activities in the past month than you have your entire life.

Looks like a good movie.

I'm not sure why the main character is described as "prejudice" against Chinese people. Does he somehow discriminate against them based only on their ethnicity or does he simply not like them?

I believe there is a difference between "not liking" or not wanting to associate with people and discriminating against them.

Just found out about this movie...being a HUGE Eastwood fan I cannot wait!!!

He reminds me of my father sooo much.  My dad...6'2", took no crap cop who spoke softly, but would kick your ass if you crossed him...yet allllll his friends came to him for help when anything went wrong.  One of those guys...

Hope I'm half the man my father is/was....
