Review: I love, love, LOVE Clint Eastwood. Nobody does grumpy as well as Clint! He's a fantastic, iconic actor and a brilliant movie maker. So, obviously, I had some expectations for this one. And, I have to say, I was positively surprised. Clint is grumpy, unhappy, rude, and borderline-hateful as widower Walt Kowalski, but even through his familiar squinting growl & frequent racial slurs he obviously cares, and it [surprisingly] turn out to be a really heartwarming film. I laughed, I smiled, and I even shed a few tears... Freaking Brilliant! Easily one of the best damn movies of 2008! Definitely a must see!!

Grade: 9.5 - highest grade so far of the movies of 2008
