I went to see Gran Torino with my mom tonight. I'd heard good things about it, but having seen the previews (and because it's Clint Eastwood!), I was worried about it being Dirty Harryish. However, it's less "make my day" and more about (to quote movie critic Roger Ebert) "the belated flowering of a man's better nature. And it's about Americans of different races growing more open to one another in the new century."
I was surprised at how much I liked it. Worth seeing.
