Re: Last movie impressions

I just recently watched the remake of the John Wayne classic, True Grit. Jeff Bridges did an outstanding job portraying the role of Rooster Cogburn, but the real star of the movie was Hailee Steinfeld in her role as Mattie Ross; Her portrayal of the character was simply amazing.

The movie was pretty much a line for line duplicate of the original, and my view was further cemented when I happened to catch the last hour of the original airing on Universal HD. There were a few darker moments in the remake though, like how the scene with Little Blacky went down and the ending scene where we see a much older Mattie attempting to visit Rooster. Remake or not, this movie is worth the view.
