Go see Gran Torino this weekend!

I kept planning on mentioning this, but just never quite got around to it. Now that the weekend is upon us, go see Clint Eastwood's newest, Gran Torino. I thought it was just a really great movie.

The day we saw it, the theater was quite full, and yet nobody moved for about 30 seconds after the closing credits started to roll. And I noticed that as everyone filed out, it was as quiet as a group leaving church. For some reason, nobody spoke until out in the lobby. The ending wasn't shocking or anything like that, it was a very good ending. I was really surprised by the audience reaction. I don't know what it meant, but I really liked the film. Well worth your time!
