TRUE GRIT (2010) Review


A New Hampshire native, Paul is a screenwriter who has lived in Los Angeles since 2000, first working in post-production at Paramount, then as a freelance script reader for Radar Pictures. The youngest in a family of six, he was taken to movies that he probably should not have seen, just because the rest of the family was going. He rarely walks out of movies ("Tomb Raider," "Easy A" and "Ultraviolet" being exceptions) and won't watch a movie if he can't see it from the very beginning. He owns DVDs of "Lawrence of Arabia" and "Kingpin" but can't decide which is better, although he believes the scene where Woody Harrelson milks the cow is probably the best scene in either movie.

    Honest to god fantastic movie. After No country for Old Men, I felt that the Cohen Brothers had deserted me but True Grit has redeemed them in my eyes.

    I also agree with your points regarding the acting. Aside from Matt Damon ( who was just OK), the movie was brilliantly performed.

    What do you think about Hailee Stanfield? Should she be nominated in a supporting role or best actress all together? I say Best Actress.

      I’d be happy with either. Didn’t quite feel like a full role, partly because the V.O. was the other actress, but I really liked her & can’t wait to see what she does next!

      I kinda want to see this movie again now.
