Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw
- The 17th James Bond movie out of the current 22, and Pierce Brosnans first taste of being the world's best spy and ladies man. Goldeneye is about Russian General. Arkady Ourumov and his rock-thighed squeeze-machine right hand woman Xenia Onatopp who seek out the Goldeneye Key, a key that will cause one of two Russian Satellites to release an EMP blast of Radiation on London, completely wiping out everything electronical, thus setting England back to the stone age. However, it is ultimately discovered that it is 007's fellow MI6 agent 006, Alec Trevelyan who was supposedly murdered by Ourumov who was behind the plan the entire time.
- This is my personal favourite James Bond of the current 22 films; Being Pierce Brosnans first role as James Bond, and pulling it off in a spectacular way. The film also brings back nostalgic factors of the classic - successful as well - Nintendo 64 game of the same name.
- Korean War Veteran, Walt Kowalski leads a life of hatred towards people who are constantly around him; his family, namely his son Mitch and his family who are trying to take advantage of his current status to gain for their own benefit, and the church Priest who constantly nags at him to come to a confession as a request from his recently deceased wife. When a family of Hmong's move in next door, the son, Thao is taken by his 'cousin' Spider to join their street gang and get him to steal Walt's beloved Gran Torino muscle car as an innitiation. Walt scares off Thao who is forced to work for Walt to pay of his debt to Walt for attempted burglary. Walt grows close to Thao and begins to respect him and see him as a son. When Thao's sister Sue is raped and beaten by Spider and his gang in retaliation to Walt's attack on one of them, Walt sets out to get revenge; locking up Thao to prevent him from getting into trouble. Walt is shot to death by the gangbangers, leaving his Gran Torino to Thao, much to the misfortune of his granddaughter (who is a snobbing Bitch by the way).
- This is Clint Eastwood's final performance ever, and boy does he go out in style. Playing the cranky old Walt refelcts his past roles as a badass dude with attitude who can still kickass and take names. His performance is done in amazing fashion, both comedic and indepth with hate and love. He is the whole package as he is not only the main star of the film, but Directed and Produced the film as well. One of the greatest films I have ever seen. A definite pick from the shelf at the video store.
