It's not in Gran Torino is it?  Thao and Clint in the basement with the old Army chest or something?

I watched Absolute Power a few days ago.  True Crime the day before that.

Saw it again today, still excellent.

The Black Keys - Live At The Crystal Ballroom DVD

Seeing it again on Tuesday!

I really want to see it again, hopefully I will this week sometime.

That's a very good point KC.  I was by no means criticising it! :D  I think it's a bold choice, but not a bad one if Clint did indeed choose to do that.

Does anybody feel like discussing the ending?  I really liked it, especially thinking back on it afterward.  I wasn't sure what was going to happen so the events leading up to the finale were pretty ambiguous for me.  I liked how he got the shave and bought a fitted suit.  What does everybody think about the quote, "Whatever it is... they won't stand a chance..."?  It seems to go much deeper than just getting the gang arrested.  Also, did anyone else think the way his body was positioned as sort of a crucifix when the camera pulled back after he was shot?  I'd really enjoy hearing your thoughts.

Jethro Tull - Songs From The Wood

I called my father earlier this week and asked him if he wanted to see Gran Torino with me. He drove in from Dallas and we caught the 7:30 showing. Wow! I have too many emotions going on right now after seeing the film. This is up there with Unforgiven for me. I absolutely loved this movie. I will say that I believe this is Clint's finest acting performance in my opinion. The character of Walt is incredibly believable and likable as the story unfolds. I did not find myself thinking 'that was a good one Clint" or "that is what Harry,Gunny, or Will Munny would have done" but I was finding myself totally intrigued with Walt and his life. The ending through me off and ticked me off when Walt gets shot. When it unfolds to what he was doing I loved it. My body was so damn tense after the film that I had a hard time walking out of the theater.  The first Eastwood movie that I ever saw was Bronco Billy with my dad. It was cool to watch Gran Torino with him at the theater 28 or 29 years later. I told him that.
This is a wonderful post Richard.

I saw it yesterday and absolutely loved it as well.  I think the more I think about it, and think about how the end relates to some of his actions (some of the foreshadowing) I like it even more.  And Clint was amazing in it of course.

I can't tell you how excited I am for this movie!  If it opens near me on Christmas Day I will be there, you can be sure :D

Ugh, I hate when they do limited releases.  I'm going to try my best to find a theater around me showing it in December.

I spent my Halloween enjoying Changeling :D

I was doing some research on the story and the guy who played Northcott, the serial killer, looks EXACTLY like the real guy.  It's quite frightening.
