    I'm looking forward to seeing True Grit, I have enjoyed much of the Coen Brothers' work and I want to see if it stays closer to the novel than it's predecessor.

    I was going to see it last weekend. It was sold out as I was halfway through the line at the theater. I'll probably see it myself at the tail end of this weekend or next week when the theater will be empty. :lol:

    I'll be waiting for the blue ray. That way I can watch the original and the new back to back.

    The Best Acting Oscar that John Wayne got for True Grit was a sympathy/makeup gesture.

    Sort of a lifetime achievement award.

    Far from his best work.
