    excellent movie....sticks to the book....actors are all strong...esp matt damon in the place of glen campbell....

    Bite yore tongue, Maddie! The original True Grit was great..I haven't seen this one but my mom and sister did and they both said it was incredible.

    I trust their taste, I can't wait to see it. Except they ride a horse to death and I don't know if I can handle that so soon after my own sweetheart's death...

    You liked Matt Damon? I thought he was the weak link myself. Maybe you just have a crush on Matt? :lol:

    Jeff Bridges and Hailee Steinfeld (That 14 year old girl) are gonna get Oscar nominations I'll bet. Great movie, It's a must see!

    I saw the new one a couple weeks ago and was very impressed. Watched the original this past weekend and thought it was good movie, but definitely preferred the more recent film.

    It should win for Best Grammar. I don't think there's a contraction spoken during the entire film.
