I try not to let expectations get the best of me when it comes to movies, but sometimes it's impossible to avoid it, especially when you're looking forward to the work of one of your favorite directors (or, well, two of them, in this case). Ethan and Joel Coen don't just direct and write their films; they also produce them, which isn't necessarily something that everyone will notice. Why is it an ... read more

The film has violence, black humor, eccentricity. Plays but a very safe and simple dashboard. It has no trace of surprise. At the beginning you know how to finish what relations will be established between the key characters and what the whole point and the ending of what you see. The surreal and eccentric characters in the film progresses and the exhaust is the reality within the limits of the ty... read more

True Grit, a surprising choice for the Coen brothers who are among the most original filmmakers of our time. This was supposedly a closer adaptation of Charles Portis' book and not a remake of the 1969 version starring John Wayne yet it is virtually the same movie, almost shot for shot. Only the ending differs from the original and is slightly extended and Hailee Steinfeld is more effective as Mat... read more

Description: Fourteen-year-old Mattie Ross's (Hailee Steinfeld) father has been shot in cold blood by the coward Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin), and she is determined to bring him to justice. Enlisting the help of a trigger-happy, drunken U.S. Marshal, Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges), she sets out with him -- over his objections -- to hunt down Chaney. H ... (more)

True Grit

“A truly great western essentially boils down to one simplistic thing: a good character study. For all of its grand vistas and gorgeous Technicolor cinematography, The Searchers boils down to one man’s journey to find his niece and grapple with his racist and xenophobic feelings. Johnny Guitar is a titanic battle of wills between two strong women, and High Noon deconstructs the image of the western hero into something more naked and ugly, a human being crying out for help. And so True Grit gives us two central characters who exemplify the titular traits and surround them with colorful supporting roles. It’s one hell of a movie.

Putting aside the wealth of great characters and fabulous acting for a moment, let us discuss Roger Deakins’ cinematography. It is a glorious thing t” read more

“Authentic and hard, this tribute to the real west Western is tough and gritty. Kudos to the principals and young Hailee Steinfeld for carrying the flavor through. Methodical and deliberate, the spirit of the genre is captured.” read more

“A really good modern western, again with convincing performances and full of excellent scenes. An obviously well written movie with a great storyline. Not sure whats going on with that crazy guy in Ned's crew haha. The scene when the guy chops off his friends fingers and then gets shot straight in the face is the standout moment in the film for me! Either that or the gun fight near the end, following "I call that bold talk for a one eyed fat man!"” read more

I Recommend...(The Short List) (80 movies items)

" Western. Directed by the Coen Brothers. Stars Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon. Re-make of a John Wayne film that, with a few exceptions, far surpasses the original. Rooster Cogburn is one of the most memorable characters in film. A young girl's father is murdered, she hires a U.S. Marshall to help get vengeance."
