True Grit Remake

    True Grit is one of those movies that should not be remade. John Wayne’s zombie body would come out and eat the comatose brain that came up with this idea and spit out like cheap tobacco. Pitooie! One thing about this movie, Jeff Bridges is a dead ringer for Kris Kristofferson. Maybe Kris had the balls to reject the movie script. I know it’s the Coen brothers, but the dude has no True Grit. Why bother dusting the mothballs out of this quasi-classic movie? The Dude is not the Duke.

    true grit remakeFourteen-year-old Mattie Ross’s (Hailee Steinfeld) father has been shot in cold blood by the coward Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin), and she is determined to bring him to justice. Enlisting the help of a trigger-happy, drunken U.S. Marshal, Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges), she sets out with him — over his objections — to hunt down Chaney. Her father’s blood demands that she pursue the criminal into Indian territory and find him before a Texas Ranger named LeBoeuf (Matt Damon) catches him and brings him back to Texas for the murder of another man.
