Movie Review by Tim
January 4th, 2011

Did I miss something?

Favorite Movie Quote: "Im going to spank you"

So everyone is ranting and raving about this film and frankly I once again am shocked at what America thinks is a well made film. This film quite frankly is just boring....and coming from me, a man that loves westerns, is just bad.

Hailee Steinfeld - yes she is an amazing young actress...I'm not sure how old she is because apparently her agent was not smart enough to have her imdb profile updated with ANY type of information on her (even though now True Grit will indefinitely be her ticket to stardom.)
She is older then what Dakota Fanning started at but she will be the next big actress, mark my words.

Matt Damon might has well not even showed up for work, I mean he doesn't look like himself and gives probably the most blah performance of his career. Barry Pepper is just looking like he is about to kick the bucket (see my review of Casino Jack for more info on that) and The Dude...yes the dude himself Jeff Bridges...he just isn't a gunslinger to me....sorry

No action what-so-ever, like a western version of Glengary Glenross...just a lot of fancy dialogue with a story that's been told in different variations 14 times throughout the years.

I think lots of people will disagree with me on this one....and Im sure it will rack up tons of awards with all the buzz its getting. I wouldnt argue a "best actress performance" award for Steinfeld.

Matt Damon's "True Grit" Abs Double Was Ethan Coen's Son

Sooooo glad that I didn't waste my time on this movie. It was on my 'want to watch list'. Thanks for the low down.
