Gran Torino

Yup - I blew off work this afternoon and went to a matinee (sometimes, I really love my job). It was a rare "Dahlia-free" afternoon as Steve had taken her out to his Dad's with him.

Sometimes I really just like going to movies by myself. I don't know why and wouldn't feel the same way about live theater, but sometimes a movie is just the thing. I didn't have a lot of options, especially for when I wanted to go, but I wanted to see GRAN TORINO so it worked out fine with me.

I love Clint Eastwood. I would not mess with him. I'm not going to "review" the film but I will say this. I liked it. I liked the pace of it (although, it did take me a while to get into) and while I had a pretty good idea going in on how it would turn out, I was surprised by a few things. I enjoyed it.

I love to see an afternoon movie alone!

I keep hearing really good things about this movie. I am thinking my husband and I need to see it.We both love Clint.
