I loved John Wayne, he was the super American hero, always doing the right thing. John was never compromised. In a world where the boy got the girl and spent the night with her, Wayne was different (except for one movie, can you name it?), he was a throwback.
So it was with ambivalence I went to see the new True Grit. But I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The movie was true to the old movie enough of a twist to make the move “new”. Hats off to the Cohen brothers. While I prefer the old, I enjoyed the new. Check out the trailers below.
