The last time i watched Gran Torino was about 3 years ago and i was a bit stoned at the time and thought it was one of the worst films i had seen in a very long time.But as i watch it now it seems not too bad,yeah there’s still a couple of scenes that are a bit shit and make me cringe but overall it’s not the worst.I think the racist aspect of Eastwoods character is good,but yeah we get it he’s a big racist you don’t have to keep shoving it down our throats.And the rape of Taos sister is pretty much glossed over,you only hear someone mention the word rape once.I know this was up for a an Oscar nod but i don’t think it deserved it.Did this film need to be made?In my opinion,No.I didn’t feel moved at any time during the film,not even the shoot-out scene.Oh and listen to the first song when the credits start rolling.Eastwood sings like he’s got a bag of gravel in his throat,maybe all that blood he was coughing up was real.
