True Grit, the remake with Jeff Bridges

True Grit (2011)Last evening we watched the True Grit remake with Jeff bridges. Some people have said that this film followed the book better than the original one with John Wayne. I have not read the book but I must say that I did not feel that there was that much difference between the John Wayne version and this one. Sure, there was a difference in the details but the main elements was pretty much the same. There was an epilogue on the end which was a tad more sad, but certainly not misplaced, than in the original film.

I have to say that the film it was very good. Jeff Bridges was doing an excellent interpretation of Rooster Gogburn. I found him to be quite “John Wayne like” in this film which is perhaps why I liked it so much.

Video and Audio (DTS 5.1 Master Audio) was very good as well. A crisp image with good color dynamics. Not that there is that much sound effects in a western movie but the sound was clear and agreeable to listen to.
