For reasons I cannot explain, I have recently come to loath the films of Clint Eastwood.
Let me help you out. His films have mostly sucked for quite some time.
His last good film was 2006 with Flag of Our Fathers, this recent stuff; 15:17 to Paris and Sully, are 20 minute stories stretched to 90 minutes of boredom without any sense of style or craft, while hammering the audience over the head about "good old fashioned (Christian) American values.
Are you serious? Are you one of those people that still uses the word "retarded" and hasn't clued into the fact that it's disrespectful to mentally handicapped individuals? It's pretty common knowledge that that word can be very offensive these days if it's used casually and out of context, as you have.
I'm reclaiming the word. I don't really care much for how the meaning of words get twisted according to the fads of the day.
Incidentally, it's only offensive if I call YOU retarded.
BTW, that retard stuff which began this thread never fails to lift my (retarded) spirits.
Sometimes when someone is talking to me face to face (and they're the type that demand eye contact), I'll slowly lower my right eyelid to about halfway down while looking them in the eye. It's funny to watch the discomfort that flashes in their expression.
