I love modern westerns, and True Grit looks excellent! It’s most certainly Oscar-bait on many fronts, just another highly anticipated film by the Coen brothers. I loved the original, and I hope this will live up to the solid film that was the original, for which John Wayne won his only Academy Award.
Recently, I reviewed the novel I Am Number 4 by Pittacus Lore. Before the book came out, the movie rights were optioned, and here’s the first trailer for the film. It looks promising, and I suppose nothing can be as bad as Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.
