Sorry, this just isn't that good. The story is extremely conventional and boring. The girl gives a good performance, and so does Damon, but I don't the way Cogburn is portrayed in this film. Bridges basically goes around half hardly mumbling throughout the film... Really, it gets on my nerves before the mid way point of the movie.

The "villains" are given almost no screen time at all. Why are we suppose hate these guys again? Ned Pepper isn't much of a villain at all. There just isn't anything to really care about in regards to this movie.

This might be the most lazy effort that The Coens have made.


5/10

Rating would probably be higher if it wasn't so f*cking long. At one point I was just like, "okay, is this shit over yet?"

But it was a cool movie to see in 3D with all the special effects and what not. Not sure if it was worth the $13, but I only paid like $5 of it so it was worth it to me.

Not worth seeing in theaters unless you see it in 3D, imo. I'd have been pissed if I sat through two and a half hours of the regular movie.
Yeah those transformers movies love to drag on.

are you sure you didn't watch a different movie?

I thought I had already seen it too and thought it sucked, and never finished it. But I think that was Hall Pass...

It may have been funnier because I was watching it with a friend or something, I don't know. But I enjoyed it.

Out of the three guys featured, I really had a good background on Magic. The stuff on Bird and Fischer was awesome to see. Their video footage and old school pictures is pretty fantastic to see
yeah, grown ups was terrible. worst comedy ive seen in years.

recently watched the new true grit and then re-watched the classic.

I gotta say, the new one was awesome. Even my wife, not a western fan, was really into it and actually watched it twice. Really good character statements right off the bat and all the acting was very solid. 9/10

the classic is great, but I almost feel like I enjoyed the new one more. I think its because it was new (as opposed to the classic, which I have seen ??10 times over the last 25 years). 9/10

Into the Wild 7/10: For the most part entertaining enough for its almost 2.5 hours. Sometimes it drags on. Actors did a good job in the acting department. Nice scenery shots.

The Cottage with Andy Serkis. It was pretty interesting with several twists and lots of gore, but overall wasn't executed very well 5.5/10.

C. The movie wasn't about the villains, it's about the strength of the girl, Cogburn proving his worth and their relationship. The villains are just a plot device to get them together.

I'm not saying it's an amazing movie, but it's definitely not bad like you're claiming.

I don't care that it's an adaptation and not their writing The story was conventional as shit and it was made even worse that it's basically a remake. This movie really is pointless rehash of the 1969 version. It's the Coens being lazy and that's mainly it.

No, Bridges wasn't great. All he did was mumble the who damn time. Not that he has a lot to work with because the character is mostly shit anyway.

John Wayne is most a shitty actor, but at least his screen presence gave the character some life.

I couldn't really care about Rooster Cogburn or Mattie to be honest.

Absolutely hilarious. I thought the entire thing was incredibly well done and the breaking it down into acts in a play format was a great idea. I couldn't help but be amused by Lars showing his somewhat lack of respect for actors shown by his portrayal of Kristoffer as an idiot, especially in the beginning when he was trying to "establish his character." He also seems show his distain about the average movie audience that demands sentimentality and simplicity from film -- one part in particular at the very end Kristoffer was talking to his ex-wife and she said something like "he's corny. you aren't aiming low enough. you need living room realism, sentimentality..."

9/10
