Gran Torino

Walt Kowalski is a widower who holds onto his prejudices despite the changes in his Michigan neighborhood and the world around him. Kowalski is a grumpy, tough-minded, unhappy an old man, who can't get along with either his kids or his neighbors, a Korean War veteran whose prize possession is a 1972 Gran Torino he keeps in mint condition.

Recently widowed senior Walt Kowalski speaks his mind no matter who he offends, and growls under his breath whenever he disagrees with those around him. Much of his personal values are shaped from his time in the Korean War. He doesn't understand his family, nor they him. As such, they tolerate each other more than love each other.

This was the movie we watched last night. It was already late when we decided that we want to watched Gran Torino. We were just flicking channels when accidentally, we saw the preview of this movie so we decided to get out and rent a copy of it at redbox.

This movie is really great. We had a great time watching it. My favorite scene of the movie was when Walt brought Thao to the barber shop "to man him up".

There are a lot of good parts in the movie. If you haven't seen it yet... go grab a copy....
