every actor sucked in this movie with exception to Clint Eastwood. i thought it was a liberating movie and i enjoyed the symbolic ending much like John Wayne's last movie, The Shootist.

I literally just saw this movie a couple of days ago. Clint Eastwood is so badass in this film. I've actually never seen any of his movies previous to this.

check out Dirty Harry, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, Unforgiven, and Mystic River. you should enjoy them if ya liked Gran Torino

I heard all of those were good, but I'd imagine the badass routine would get tiring.

You stupid fuckers are too stupid to realize the greatness of an actor like Clint.Hey Beez,stop with the bullmikebeez and explain why the other actors sucked?
You dont have a valid reason cause you are used to floating on top of toilet water.
9 years ago
And oh yeah-I agree with yak,anytime a great actor such as Clint does some musical number i want to take cyanide.He did that shit before though unfortunately
9 years ago
ummm, billy mays, are you brain-damaged from all that oxyclean shit or something? he didn't say eastwood sucked, and saying the other actors sucked is no slight on clint... i saw the movie, it was great, but most of the actors DID suck hard. you think that kid, "thao", did an acceptable job acting? you must be deaf and blind...
9 years ago
TiredGuy thank you that is exactly how i feel, its like they found some no name actors and asked "can you speak broken english?... ok your in" ill give a little credit to the preacher actor but other than that the rest was rubbish.
9 years ago
No no,i didnt say mikebeez said clint sucked,that was aimed at stupidliminal.Im saying,in that movie,perhaps they were asking for the asian actors to act basically flat..like the personality of a mikebeez.You dont know what kind of angle they were playing up so why the fuck would you make the assumption they were acting bad?
If you put it all together,and you enjoyed that flick-and it sounds like you did-why pick the fuckin nits?
Smell that beez

Are you fucken stupid, BillyGAYSHERE? I never said Clint Eastwood sucked. Learn to understand, you dumb shit.
9 years ago
jesus christ billy you just said you think these are good actors who were told to act bad? man think about shit before you talk. so you thought they were decent actors? personally i was embarrassed that clint had to act with these nobodies in his last film.
9 years ago
Hey Supidanimal,go fuck yer sister's nutsack.You said,that badass routine would get tiring..i translated that to be an insult to the great man that is Clint Eastwood.
Hey bucket full of Beez -you fuckin read my words you little queerbate vegan-why do you assume they are bad actors?
In other fuckin words,what makes a great actor act great and vis-versa?
Just throwing out shit makes you no more smarter than a pile of beez twerp!
Lets use a case study shall we?
Tom Hanks
When Mr Hanks 1st started acting-Bossum Buddies-was he a great actor?Was he a great actor acting bad?Was he a bad actor acting bad?
yo fuckin dont know do you cum stain?
Shut your teenie fuckin half wit mouth fag.

Alright totally off topic but i need some help from the older members, anyone remember that vid of a rap vid that had some naked chicks in it but its all timed to some other weird song in another language? help!
9 years ago
you're asking "older members" about rap?

lol, didnt mean it that way, i meant people who have been members for a while being that the video is at least 2 years old. if only the search feature actually worked...

Gotta challenge the racist tag, as the movie as a whole is about racial barriers being broken down, while throwing up a middle finger at pc attitudes currently held by quite a few people today.

Good post.
9 years ago
you seriously don't think clint eastwood played a racist? just because someone does something good doesn't make him NOT a racist :P
he was most def a racist in the movie.. but also a good guy... just because someone is a racist doesn't automatically make them 'bad'.. just ignorant..

9 years ago
I disagree, almost every character in that movie plays exactly what most peoples racial stereotype of them would be, and in the end, no one except clint really breaks the stereostype. I guess its more like racial barriers for old angry white men can be broken down, but everyone else doesnt change
9 years ago
clint eastwood started the movie as a racist, and ended the movie as a racist.. his 'racial barriers' didn't change one bit.. like is said up there, just because he played a racist doesn't mean he played a 'bad person'.. just a person who is racially ignorant, he even knew that, so did his neighbors, thats why they put up with him because the point of the movie is you can't teach an old dog new tricks :P

*tries real hard*

The flm was brilliant, nothing short of fucking pure awesomeness!!

Yak, im sorry, but bollocks.

Clint played an old scoold guy whol went through the times of segregation and the vietnam mar. He was forced int the American VS 'gook' attitude & that made sense, from his persprectice. If you grew up to end up fighing in the forest, you would have the same damn prejudiced he does. He eventually sees the errors in his assumptions and the completely misguided crap be lived and breathed, but he was only a product of his environment.

If his circumstances herere different, he would have been different. Unforunatle he wasn't al,owed hhe luxory of the stock brokers childhood.




He came back from the jungkle wars of vietnam, he had his ideasls but little to actually return to. He would have lifed his life, up until the point ehere the film began. His wife was dead, his children were ungrateful shits & he was predudice against the people who he lived with.

He slowly leadt the aprecciate the fact that they werent just what he assumed thatem to be. The gilr & the boy slowly intriduced them the theire world which he bean to appreciate as something other that 'god eating barbarians'.

....Im stoppin now caus e explaining the detals of that film is best left to someone sober.

the film is awesome tho
9 years ago
That's not how I saw it, you must have missed the part where he and his white friend insulted one another in a racist manner. He held real racist animosity though against asians as a result of his past, but then saw through it and regarded the nips gooks as just people the same as his mick, kike, or wop friends or whatever.

I'm pretty sure you're taking the piss here yak (as the limeys say) but I really liked the film.

OJ you interposting nancy.

If Gran Torino would have played with my penis, I would have let it;.

Yak remember the line "ive got more in common with these Gooks than I do with my own family." there were definitely some racial barriers that were brought down throughout the movie. he cared about his neighbors he broke down his racism, for god sakes he gave the old lady who couldnt even speak english his dog. P.S. my grandfather was in the korean war just like old Eastwood here and ive never heard my grandfather say a single racist thing.

The racism in the movie amounts to name calling. Words cant hurt you.

I cant believe oranjepoops post.Even the retards among us laugh at your inane attempt at spelling.Sleep it off pisshead

OJ said it best (even in his 'hey look at me...I'm drunk...honestly' kinda way).
Roland has some points, too.
yak? You're not serious. We're all racist really, huh. True though...you CAN be a good person and still crack racist remarks.
I think respect and opening one's mind were the overriding issues in the movie. The 'gooks' and 'zipperheads' next to him, ended up becoming his true family in the movie...whilst his 'real' family were just a bunch of money-grabbing, greedy cunt, average Americans...wanting to get what they could out of him.
The movie was kinda like Karate Kid in reversed roles.

He fought in Korea, not VietNam~

The acting was horrible in that movie.
Good idea/story, but at the same time it had a silly ending with the "savior" bullshit. The movie needed some better supporting actors.
9 years ago
Umm...guys, it's just a movie...
9 years ago
agreed alec those actors were paid with a "koka-kola" a day probably

Some bad acting yes, but I doubt there are a surplus of English speaking Hmong teens with SAG cards trolling LA for jobs.

Man, I dropped a FOUL mikebeez earlier this week. Seriously, it was green and felt like the kind you get after too much taco bell (but I hadn't had any taco bell). An hour later, I went into the bathroom to get a drink of water and it still fucking smelled!

Poor Clint,how misguided he is,well just that one facet of his personality.Vegan?..I would wager all the tea in China its because he's grossed out by dead animal and not one other reason.No way is he a puffy,limp wristed animal rights douche like Mikebeez.Vegans take the worst smelling Mikebeezes

overrated weapon with many flaws. has been improved upon many times over. favored only by collectors and those compensating for small wee-wees.

*overrated* so that means it doesn't perform as well as advertised? jaimee fill us in on that one will you?

1911's win most IPSC divisions year after year. "wee-wee" size has nothing to do with it.

I've not used one, but the way I see it, there can't be much wrong with it if was designed in 1911 and is stil being used. They must have got something right.
