I didn’t like True Grit

True Grit. The much-talked about remake of the John Wayne classic by the much-beloved Coen Brothers was about as stale and lifeless as the rolls you take home from the restaurant and then throw away a few days later. All these people are jumping on me about it but I thought Matt Damon reached new, unparalleled heights of wooden acting. Jeff Bridges was pretty good, much better than John Wayne ever was, interestingly enough. The plot is plodding. We stayed for over an hour before we finally gave up and left. Neither of us were having a good time. Oh, yeah, the girl. I don’t know who played her and I don’t want to know. There! I said it!

Here’s the trailer anyways. Say Hi to Mr. Cogburn!

You know, I didn’t like the original, so what were the odds I’d like the remake? If you’re gonna remake something, pick something more interesting.

About Russell Smith

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is also an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Natasha, Maxwell, Tigger and Nigel.
