True Grit – The Old and the New

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.
