Clint is great Hollywood sucks
Saw Gran torino last eve and thought that it was a great flick - Clint was fantastic - I cant believe he or the movie didn't get any oscar nominations...whats up with that - It certainly was deserving and in my opinion better than some of the others which were nominated.

I'm looking forward to seeing it as well.

It's received mostly very positive reviews.

However, some utter and total douchebag on another Topix thread gave away the ending. On purpose. Just to spoil the movie for those who haven't seen it yet. I'm still pissed about that.

Thanks for the heads up on that one, I guess I will have to wait a while to see it legally in Ozz.
