True Grit (2010)
it was a very good movie and i really enjoyed it.
Plot: It was exactly like the movie back in 1970. but i was a little more faithful to the book, which is one thing i like about most of the remakes of movies based off of books in the 21st century, good or bad. They all around seem to be more loyal to the books in some way. I mean sure, it comes natural as i understand when it comes to the work of the two directors of this movie but still.
Editing: Well done. Just well done. especially how they introduced Cogburn earlier in the film with the way we was shadowed at first.
Acting: i thought it was great. i especially thought the woman that played Mattie did an excellent job in showing Mattie as quite the strong, smart, independent woman. and Ridges i thought was very good. the only thing was that after the movie my dad thought he was playing similar Billy Bob Thornton in Sling Blade. now bear with me, i will admit that i have never seen that movie, nor am i at all familiar with that actor, but i guess that counts as a down if that is truly the case.
Comedy: it was great. particularity with the scenes between Mattie and that shop owner.
and well i hate to admit that's all i have to say about htis film so yeah.
