3. CLINT EASTWOOD VS. THE YOUTH OF AMERICA IN GRAN TORINO (2008)

To further drive home the point that Clint Eastwood hates everybody younger than him, 2008’s Gran Torino was basically two hours of Clint threatening and pounding his way through some rambunctious youngsters. Eastwood didn’t have to do much method acting to transform himself from a crotchety old millionaire into a crotchety old war veteran, but he was remarkably terrifying  as the grizzled, angry racist Walt Kowalski.

The 78-year-old Eastwood takes his frustration out on various gang members throughout the film and shows the world that people who collect Social Security can be just as dangerous as anyone else. He was pretty intimidating in the '70s as Dirty Harry, but Eastwood proved that ass kicking ages like fine wine in Gran Torino.
