    Another western, right after watching Spirit and Unforgiven. Similar to Unforgiven, perhaps even better in that department, it manages to capture the spirit of the old west more realistically and accurately than most films set at that timeline. The scenarios are wonderfully shot, the vocabulary and the accent used are nothing less than perfect and all actors are brilliant with their roles, even (specially) the Incomprehensible Jeff Bridges, although Matt Damon and Hailee Steinfeld are both surprisingly brilliant.

    As many…

    I've never seen the original True Grit so take my opinion with a grain of salt, but I'm pretty sure I'll never be able to see Rooster Cogburn as being portrayed by anyone other than Jeff Bridges. Wow.

    Westerns sure are cool, huh? They're probably the most distinctive genre of them all, it's so hard to confuse them with something else like you might with sci-fi or something. The feeling given from a western is really something special, they don't even need to be good to be really enjoyable.

    It sure is hard to understand a single thing Jeff Bridges is saying, though. I wonder if I'm doing the same thing I did during "District 9" and there's…

    As much as I love the Coen Brothers, they are somewhat lacking in the strong female character department. They primarily tell men’s stories, and in their entire filmography, only a few female characters are given real character depth (Marge Gunderson, Carla Jean Moss from No Country for Old Men, Edwina from Raising Arizona, Amy Archer from The Hudsucker Proxy—that’s just about it). That is why Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld) is such a revelation. She embodies a bold, feminist spirit, and…

    The Coen brothers have created something unassuming yet quite beautiful in "True Grit," a second cinematic version of the novel that was first adapted famously in 1969 and brought John Wayne his Best Actor Academy Award.

    The film plays out like a standard western, complete with good cowboys and bad, little ladies in peril, shootouts and even a visit by an Indian or two. It feels conventional (though I don't mean that in a bad way) for a Coen brothers…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I rarely say this, but Coen Brothers’ “True Grit” is one of my favourite movies of 2010s modern cinema. Despite being a remake of the 1969, this version earned for itself to be an exceptional work. “True Grit” is of straightforward story certainly, but strayed away from mediocrity with talents from casts and crews. With classic pictures like “No Country for Old Men” and “Fargo” on its shelf, the success of “True Grit” confirmed their reputation as one of the…

    Damn, I had forgotten just how perfect this movie is. It may be tied with Inside Llewyn Davis for my favorite Coen Bros. flick. Even if everything else which fired on all cylinders were to be excised, Mattie Ross is easily one of the best female characters ever written for the screen.
