I am still a bit sick, but really better than yesterday. Thank you for all your well wishes! So so sweet...

Did anyone see the movie Gran Torino? I watched it this morning and I almost cried several times lol. Maybe it's just my fragile state... Some of the actors are not really good, but Clint Eastwood is really the ultimate badass in it. I recommend ^_^

Gran Torino was an excellent movie. At first I was bothered by the racial slurs, until I saw that it was integral to the character (Walt Kowalski). The story had a strong sacrificial climax^^

Btw, thanks for introducing spotify to me, Ive had great use of it, Thanks.

Yes, you can't really say a movie is racist just because a character is.

My pleasure! I love it more and more...

Gran Torino was AMAZING. I thought it was going to be guns and shouting (which I like) but instead it was really funny in parts. I've never seen a move that captured that type of humour. Also liked the ending, I hate films where everything ends too perfectly.

Well if you really can't stand the trailer I don't think it's for you. Also, like i said, I am sick :P A bit more fragile than normally.

I refused to see it on the account of to me it just looks like Clint Eastwood trying to push his own agenda against gun control.

So you refuse to see anything else than what matches your own agenda? ;)

I really didn't end this movie thinking there should be less gun control in America. More the opposite...

Well no. I already know Clint Eastwood's strong stance about the topic (and he is quite an activist about it too); as soon as I saw the trailer for it the first impression I got was, "you need a gun to protect yourself and others".
Forgive me if I chose not to support a film maker who produces a film to push his own agenda which I strongly disagree with. I think America needs to write an, "everyone has the right not to be shot in the face" bit into their constitution.
