True Grit 2010

Well I'd two choices tonight, one was watch the Old Firm game and the other was go to see the re-make of True Grit.

From what I hear I took the better option and went to the movies.

I'd give the film a 9/10 rating based purely on the fact it didn't quite have the rawness of the original but Jeff Bridges as " Rooster " Cogburn played his part well as did Matt Damon as Texas Ranger LaBoeuf and Hailee Steinfeld as " Little Sister " Mattie Ross. I think it helps if you've seen the original as you can draw comparisons on how Jeff Bridges measures up to " The Duke " AKA John Wayne but if you haven't I don't think it makes much difference. Even the good lady thought the film was quite good and that's saying something.

I think the success of this movie will be down to the fact that it's a good story.

Will Jeff Bridges get an Oscar nomination for his part ? He may well, will he win one ? It's highly possible.

Would I recommend that you see this film, definitely.

Damn good movie in my opinion and a well done re-make.

Anyone else seen it ?
