True Grit

wife and i spent late xmas day at the movie,went and saw the new "True grit" movie.I have to say it was excellant,i thought i would be dissapointed as i am a huge John Wayne fan and figured this new movie wouldn't hold up,but it did ,with great dialogue,a slightly more accurate version of the book,great characters.I was surprised that it was so good,i'm giving it 5 out of 5 stars!

I'm going on Wed night. Everyone that I know who has seen it has good things to say

So it's Good, Huh?

Matt Damon didn't stink it up too much!?!

I liked it........not really the same movie, but in a good way! Bridges didn't try to be John Wayne.......he made Rooster his own!
