Why did I wait so long to go see True Grit?

Go. Now.

That is all.

Isn't it wonderful? With all respect to John Wayne, who would certainly demand it, Jeff Bridges is brilliant. And the kid who plays Mattie just stuns. It's still not the "best picture of the year" for me, but it so totally redeems the book from the clutches of the first film.

It is a superb movie. Only one I've seen for a while, but well worth it.

Great! Now you can join some of us in being annoyed that Hailee Steinfeld is only Oscar-nominated as a "supporting actress," even though the movie's all about her.

She's up for the lead in the movie adaptation of the The Hunger Games trilogy, so I think she'll be up for a leading roll if she does as good a job there as she did in True Grit.

It was all right, it wasn't great, imo. Then again neither was the original.

I loved the book, though. :)
