True Grit

I have been sick lately.  I have been lying in bed crying, knowing that my fans were desperately awaiting some movie reviews.   My fans depend on me. You depend on me. 

As I was lying in bed I was tossing and turning, knowing that Tron had been out for a while and I still hadn’t seen it.  I had been waiting to see Tron for a while and had planned to see it as soon as I recovered from my life threatening illness. (Ok, so it was the flu, not exactly life threatening.)

But to my surprise, I decided to go see True Grit before seeing Tron.  I had heard good things about True Grit and I just didn’t believe the rumors.  I decided to make the sacrifice and go see this movie. For my fans. For you. (And sorta for me.)

It was so good. I was pleasantly surprised.  It is rare that I go into a movie with the thought that I won’t like it.  However, I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone.  You don’t have to like western movies to like this one.  This is a movie that both women and men will enjoy equally.

The thing that made this movie so great was the witty dialogue and Indians.  Without the witty dialogue and Indians this would have been an average western movie.  However, Jeff Bridges and a new actress Hailee Steinfeld stole the show.  Jeff Bridges is a polished actor and played his role spot on.  I think he will be better remembered as Kevin Flynn from Tron, but he played the cowboy spot on.  Haille Steinfeld was exceptional.  She played an overly ambitious 14-year-old girl who is trying to track down her father’s murderer.  She is now in talks to play Katniss for The Hunger Games series.  My vote goes to her.

Go see this movie.  You’ll like it, I promise.  

Where I got the pics:


  1. She better be a good actress if you're supporting her to be Katniss. Because Katniss gets to make out with TWO (count 'em) TWO hotties and I REFUSE to let a mediocre actress/weird-face get some from some potential hotties.

  2. have you ever had grits? like from the south? in my opinion, they're the epitome of nast. yes that is spelled correctly. nast. it means nasty, in case you didn't catch on to that... :)

  3. This really was a solid movie. Loved it. The dialogue was extremely clever.
