True Grit

Standard

True Grit (2010)

A Coen brothers production. Jeff Bridges plays a bounty hunter with the badge of a US Marshall. He generally shoots first and asks questions if there is anybody left alive. He is a drunk and used to be a bank robber, but now it is better to work for the law, instead of running away from them all the time.

Matt Damon plays a Texas Ranger hunting down a man who gunned down a state senator. His character is a real boy scout goody goody who is determined to catch his man.

Both these men end up helping a young lady who gets them to hunt down the man who shot her father, who is the same man Damon is hunting.

Fist off, let me say, this version beats the hell out of the old John Wayne film.

I enjoyed it a lot. It is well made. It shows the darker side of people, and what it took to get justice in those days.

A couple of small things annoyed me that was not realistic. I always notice these things, and I see it as lazy work by the directors and producers. If you are going to spend so much time and money making a good movie, why do they let these things slip by?

I recommend this movie. It has it’s moments, but the best part is that it is much much better than the old John Wayne version. God, I hate those old goody goody westerns where the good guys were all saints and the bad guys were all stupid.

  1. Mrs Grant Callaway, I am sorry you don’t understand that statement. It must have gone a mile and a half over your head. Maybe a friend can help you with better understanding that. Maybe jesus can help you. Pray to him for guidance and understanding.

  2. No, I got it, moron. Nevermind. Why bring Jesus into it? You write utter rubbish and you have like ONE other person other than myself, who actually pays attention to your silly, ugly little blog. This could go on forever. Sometimes, you just got to cut ties. It was great, hey, but yeah, I have better things to do. You are just a little bit lost, and you for an atheist, or “mad-for-science” sort of “person”, you really do put so much EFFORT into NOT believing in God. Why pay so much attention to something that clearly isn’t real…does the Boogie man and the Tooth Fairy get your back up too?
