Week 5: True Grit

This week was True Grit. I'll admit that this movie wasn't one I was super excited to see. I heard it was good but it seemed like it might be boring. Westerns really aren't my thing. Well, I'm sure glad I was very pleasantly surprised. One thing I will say though is it was a little graphic so it's probably best if you don't have a weak stomach when you go to this movie.

Jeff Bridges was perfect for the role of Rooster Cogburn. I couldn't imagine a better person to play that role. He was so convincing as a drunk that there were times I honestly couldn't understand what he was saying.

Hailee Steinfeld was really good as well. I thought at first that I would get annoyed with her know it all attitude and proper english but she really grew on me. She, also, was perfect in that role.

Somehow I forgot or didn't realize Matt Damon was in this movie. I'm a huge Matt Damon fan and generally like most movies he's in. I loved him in this one. I don't think anyone can pull off that kind of "serious" humor like Matt Damon. Him and Jeff Bridges really played off each other well.

Overall, wonderful movie and I can now see what all the hype is about. And best of all we got to go with our hubbies this week. That's always a treat.

To Sum it up: witty, gritty and a little gory.
