mauvepink BS: Which 'True Grit' is truer? (64* d) RE: BS: Which 'True Grit' is truer? 13 Feb 11

Not seen the new one. I have seen the trailers and my mind is made up already

There is only one true True Grit and it has John Wayne in it.

I am not saying that when the new version hits TV I will not watch it but I doubt even now I will enjoy it. I like Bridges (his best for me was Starman) but I doubt he is up to John Wayne's standard. I have yet to see any remake of a film that is anywhere near as good as the original version. I recently watched The Day the Earth Stood Still. It's bothing like the original at all. Some films do not deserve to wear the name of the original in my opinion. The Railway Children got close but is still not as good as the original.
