A first look at Eastwood’s “Hereafter”

Clint Eastwood continues to amaze — at the tender age of 80. Here’s the first trailer from his new movie, “Hereafter,” which takes a B-movie premise and seemingly turns it into something approaching art. We’ll have to see how it turns out, but I can’t help but think that a man of Eastwood’s age and experience probably has particularly strong and personal feelings about the end of life, and what lies beyond.

Is this the sequel for the Sixth Sense? Just kidding.
I’m an Eastwood fan and have a good feeling based on the trailer. Matt Damon was great in Invictus too. Can’t wait.

The first time I see the Tsunami of 2005 dramatized and reconstructed graphically where you can see the force of devastation that the amateur records can’t convey. Looks like a very interesting film.

no wonder Clint Eastwood is still appreciated by the critics, his movies really have deep spiritual meanings and moral lessons.
we hear OSCAR awards buzz again…

A catholic asking “Is Woody Allen is Jewish?” is like a Jew asking “is the pope catholic?”
