True Grit…

I watched the original True Grit (1969) film a few times as a kid, so I wasn’t that bothered about True Grit (2010). Then I saw a bunch of reviews saying it was a reworking from the book, rather than a remake of the original film blah, blah, blah, Coen Brothers, blah, blah, blah…

I’m sure if I watched both films side by side I would say there are a lot of differences and the latest version was a better film, but as it is I came away feeling rather underwhelmed. For the new audience I think it will be pretty cool. For those like me who watched the old version multiple times over the years I just don’t see the appeal. As for Oscar nominations, the girl was good, but Jeff Bridges seemed decidedly average to me.

Must remember, remakes are for a new audience, not miserable old gits…

Cheers
