Oddly enough, I was thinking about posting a question about this earlier.  I need to go out and check it out.  I've heard good things about it from a few of my friends.

I saw it....FREAKIN AMAZING.  Not John Wayne at all in any way but still very good. Coen Brothers always do a good job and so does Jeff Bridges

I saw it as well. I thought it was great. Never saw the original, but it has to be darn good to be better than this one.

I was surprised by the humor throughout the movie too. I didn't expect to laugh much.

My wife saw it yesterday and she felt Jeff bridges was fantastic   Couldn't make up her mind as who was better Jeff Bridges or Christian Bale in the "Fighter ", for best actor.

I saw The Fighter as well. I think Bale did a better job than Bridges, but they both did great.

If you see the Ward brothers in real life, then see what Bale did to imitate Dicky, it's insane.

Back to True Grit. Did anyone understand why the short guy who made the noises was in the movie?

The original True Grit is airing on the AMC channel this Saturday.  Team PAMPERS should watch it.

I've seen the original so many times it is unreal. Rooster Cogburn (film) is good to cause katherine Hepburn and John Wayne had so much chemistry in the movie. But again the new True Grit was great different but great. (couldn't stop thinking of big lebowski tho)

thier only failure, IMO, is Brad Pitt in "Burn After Reading". he over acts the idiot role and almost ruined the movie for me.

edit: saw "True Grit" last night. if i had a parasitic twin id give it 4 thumbs up. need to watch it again with subtitles to catch some of the dialog!

Coen Brothers are great. Watched Fargo two weeks ago and No Country for Old Men for probably the tenth time tonight.

It was good.  Although in my opinion, 3:10 to Yuma was better (I know they're different...but both are still westerns).

My dad gets PO'd every time he sees the trailer on TV. He keeps complaining about how they can't remake a movie like that. He's a horrible movie critic though. He likes some odd movies, and hates many.

Watched it last week, ajnd really liked it.  I was afraid that it would be so far off from the original as to ruin it.  It actually follows the book better than the original and was very well made.  Bridges plays Cogburn differently, but how can you really compare Wayne and Bridges?  Thought for a second Robert Duvall was playing Ned Pepper again.

I could have gone the rest of my life without hearing about Burn After Reading, that movie should have been burnt after filming. I agree the only good part in the whole thing is Pitt getting shot in the head.

Ok, here's my take on the remake. It SUCKED! Bridges played a good role , but he didn't deliver his lines as well as Wayne. Had I never seen the original then I'd give Bridges a thumbs up.

Matt Damon absolutely sucked, even if his character wasn't compared to Campbell.

Mattie Ross was much prettier than the original, but I believe the original was a better actress. I put the remake Mattie in the same category as Bridges.

Ned Pepper did a good job.

The story line was the same as the original, just different scenes. The opening dragged on and IMO opinion spoiled the rest of the movie.

I'd rate this movie, without comparing it to the original, 2.5 out of 5 stars.

If comparing to the original, then I would give it 1 out 5 stars.

Wayne won his 1st Oscar for the original. I don't see the remake winning anything.

By the way, I never realized Barbara had such a nice set.
