A solid retelling of the great american classic. That's sort of where it ends for me though. I expected something a bit more, and got a word for word adaptation, a good one, but one nonetheless. Nothing you can't get more of from the novel, but what can you do. Still a solid film. Probably didn't help that my English 101 class just studied the book, little bit of grit fatigue going on.
Mattie Ross: Why did they hang him so high?
Rooster Cogburn: I do not know. Possibly in the belief it'd make him more dead.
A nice slowburner western where the Coen brothers neatly follow every Hollywood rule there is within the genre. But it is a pleasant film to watch.
The strenght of the movie lies in it's weight. Everything is brought relatively light. It never gets to heavy in it's drama and other aspects. The pace is nice although…
If the coens have ever done a blockbuster this is it. It's grandiose and large in scale. Hailee Steinfeld joins the ranks of kid from magnolia for being one of the best kid actors, with her cold and stern Mattie. The film's story is that Mattie's pa was killed by josh brolin's Chaney, so she hires Jeff Bridges badass Rooster to hunt Chaney down, Along the way barely recognizable Matt Damon's "LaBeef" appears. And for once Matt Damon is actually…
I love that Jeff Bridges can get nominated for an Oscar when he barely speaks intelligible English. Genius.
Aside from the CGI snake, solid filmmaking and storytelling. Last time I watched this, I was sobering up during an alcohol study. It was fun.

Last week I watched the original True Grit and liked it quite a bit. I've seen many people say that the Coen Brother's remake is even better than the original. I myself have to disagree. Don't get me wrong I did like this one and in some ways it is better, but overall I prefered the original.…
Une jeune fille perspicace engage un vieux Marshall pour traquer et tuer l'assassin de son père.
Remake d'un ancien film que je n'ai jamais vu donc difficile de juger cet aspect là mais pour moi c'est un excellent western (moderne) qui montre que les frères Cohen connaissent les codes du genre et savent les exploiter comme il le faut : on retrouve des paysage magnifiques, de l'action mais pas trop, des dialogues savoureux et de l'humour, de l'enjeu et un…
Felt like a true Western. Jeff Bridges character was filthy and you could imagine the smell.

Task #26 Matt Damon Film
I thought this was a fun movie. I had quite a bit of trouble with my tv watching this so I kind of felt like it took away from the movie. I will someday watch this movie again when I have the time which will probably be in a few years unfortunately. lol. I thought Matt Damon and the main girl in it were fantastic. I didn't really like…
It was good.
