When did they make a movie about Grand Turismo? Holy shi--

Oh.

I saw GRAN(D) TORINO last night. Clint Eastwood is considered a conservative in Hollywood, so I'll assume that making a movie about how the family structure has utterly broken down in the black community leading to gangs, violence, and drugs.

Instead, Eastwood "wisely" chooses to make the movie about an Asian family with a "missing" father (this is never explained!!!!).

Thus, rather than showing the decline of the black community, the emphasis is on asians. And not the hot ones. There is a scene where some black thugs are harassing a "whigger" (naturally hollywoods take on how uncool white people are unless they're impersonating blacks....which they cant do right anyway, so why not just say all white males are ass holes). But the blacks "back down" when Eastwood shows them some bad ass attitude from the Korean war.

The whole scene was absurd cuz the gangsters woulda capped the old man and asked questions later.

And I'm still convinced the real villains in the film were his family.

Those people were pure cunties. That daughter who didn't even hang out or love her grandfather was wanting the car. WHAT A BITCH. His son? Wanted the Lions tickets? WHAT A DICK! It was completely unrealistic. I mean, Lions fans don't even want Lions tickets any more.

Joe, this is my review.

Finally action taken against a whigger! I gots ta see it. At least it does address the ridiculous stereotype of ALL Asians having happy stable families. Asians are as screwed up as the rest of us.

The movie did work for me because it showed how a deeply imperfect man, in a fucked up world, is able to change himself and his surroundings for the better, without falling into the trap of sentimentalism.
