    Jeff Bridges is like the femine side of John Wayne

    Feminine?

    Jeff Bridges seems a bit more world weary then Wayne. I haven't seen the picture yet..but Jeff Bridges was a fine choice for the role. Wayne did a good job with it..but my favorite with Wayne was "The Shootist". He really showed some acting "chops" in that one.

    Bridges is a great actor but he just doesn't have the rugged tough character for this role.

    It's a glorified Disney movie. But fun to watch.

    Coen Bros are great.

    Bridges kicks ass all over Wanye.

    I never liked him or thought he was all that great an actor.

    Wayne was a "re-actor" and great for most of the roles he took. You may not of liked him, but he had a very rugged charm and charisma that comes across on screen. That..and he was a pretty straight forward fellow. I saw him speak in front of a group of hostile college students on film. Although they were angry him in the beginning for the speech..the combination of self effacing antedotes and honest charm won them over. He really deserves his legendary status.

    Have you seen "The Shootist"? Or "The Searchers"? Those are 2 extremely well done films that Wayne starred in..

    You might just want to check them out.

    The shootest was the best thing he ever did.

    It took him decades to play a part that thousands of actors could have played just as well
