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.
