Saturday Afternoon at the Cinema
Way back when I saw the 1969 version of True Grit and today I saw the 2010 version. As beloved as John Wayne was and still is as a larger than life movie star, my vote goes to Jeff Bridges for his crusty rendition of that washed up codger of a US Marshall, Rooster Cogburn.
I'm looking forward to seeing more of Hailee Steinfeld on the big screen. She gave an outstanding performance as Mattie Ross. As usual, Matt Damon gives a spot on performance as Texas Ranger LaBoeuf.
I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and give it a resounding 4 1/2 (out of 5) thumbs up.
How about you? Got an opinion? Are you a lover of westerns like me and wish the genre would make a come-back?
