A present for a bionic 70 year old male!, 22 Feb. 2010
My husband and I watched Gran Torino recently and although it's a sad film we both giggled a little at the conduct of the character that Clint Eastwood portrays in it, as the truculant persona made us both think of my father and how he would behave if my mum passed away and was no longer around to help release the softer side of him! Given the fact that my dad was turning 70 and was fairly reluctant about it, and rightly so as he has a body that most 40 year olds would envy, I decided to look for the film for him as a little extra gift and a little bit of a joke. I found the film in a 3 DVD set with Unforgiven and Dirty Harry, reasonably priced and a nice collection I thought. As my dad begrudgingly turned 70 we amused him with this present and brought out a little of the cowboy/policeman/hero that was lurking within him and gave him a giggle at the same time. Good value for money, sentimental in it's own way, a good gift to keep and something action packed for an action packed alpha male! Great buy!
