movies by mulligan – true grit
seriously, this may be the worst movie I’ve ever seen in my life.
ok I’m willing to give a nod to the lil gal that played Mattie Ross. She pretty much stole the show. 2nd place goes to the horse-trader auctioneer guy who actually manages to argue back for a bit before he gives up. Little Blackie the pony comes in 3rd for one of the best death scenes in recent memory.
Jeff Bridges once again manages to utter every line like he’s got a mouth full of week old socks and just to keep things fair Matt Damon’s character bit his tongue in half early on.
There were flashes of good things but at least half the non Mattie Ross dialogue came across like it was being read off a broken teleprompter by a BubbaGump robot with a word of the day calendar.
Everyone else I’ve talked to seemed to like it but I suspect the Duke is probably tryin to dig his way out of his grave so he can pound some sense into people that remake movies.
This is the first time ever I’ve actually wished for crying babies and ringing phones during a movie. Hopefully that will be on the DVD special bonus feature list.
If you really want to go see True Sh
Grit the remake, take people you don’t like.
