My Review: True Grit
Overall this movie was basically the same as the original, even using a bunch of the same dialogue. There were a few differences though, like a great scene where Cogburn was trying to prove to LaBeouf how well he could shoot. The snake scene in the original was far scarier in my opinion, but they did make a change to it that I liked. In the original, after Maddie gets bitten by a snake, Cogburn just rides off to the doctor, and while watching it I kept thinking, "Why doesn't he suck the venom out?" In this movie, though, he does, and I thought that was a great addition.
You don't really have to be a fan of Westerns to enjoy this movie. There's plenty of action and humor, and great performances by the entire cast. This was a great movie to be my last movie seen in 2010, and it really makes me wonder if the Coen Brothers can make a bad movie...My rating: 9/10
