True Grit was an exceptionally good movie. I saw the original version so many years ago that I can barely recall some of the details. But, who can forget John Wayne with a pistol in each hand gunning down the "bad men" while charging his horse head-on into what would have been fatal for a normal marshall!
The Coen brother's version of the book was every bit as good as the original. Jeff Bridges and Hailee Steinfeld are receiving a lot of Oscar buzz for their roles in the flick. I would be surprised if each of them did not receive nominations.
The second movie of the weekend was Little Fockers. My husband and I have seen both the prequels to this movie. Tim went with a house-full of twenty something kids when he saw Meet the Fockers. Everyone of those kids scrambled in a mayhem of musical chairs desperate to NOT be the person sitting next to dear old dad. I tried to tell them; this is not a movie you want to see with your father!! Well..............I told you so!!
Little Fockers was entertaining, but only mildly so when compared to the first two movies.
|This picture of Tim being "shot" was unplanned. I noticed my mistake afterwards... Some of the best pictures are "mistakes" !|
Here we have the retake. Tim was being all suave and manly for the picture!!
