I've seen TRUE GRIT

Jeff Bridges stars in, The Dude Ranch.

True Grit is a film about a little farm girl who hires a washed up gunslinger to exact justice upon her Pappy's murderer. It stars Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, and Hailee Steinfeld.

Truth be told, I have no right reviewing this movie, for I missed the first few minutes of it. But what I did see of it, I did like. True Grit was directed by the Coen Brothers and executive produced by Steven Spielberg. Jeff Bridges plays a nearly over the hill former U.S. marshal, Matt Damon portrays a none too smart Texas Ranger, and Josh Brolin is the outlaw that murders Hailee Steinfeld's Pa. The casting was terrific. Even young Hailee held her own with her Oscar winning costars. If you ask me, she should seriously be considered for an Academy Award nomination. If Julia Roberts can unjustly win an Oscar for speaking with an unconvincing Southern U.S. accent, while showing off her Wonder Bra induced cleavage in every other scene in Erin Brokovich, then Ms. Steinfeld should have the right to earn a tiny golden statue for actually acting.

I believe that True Grit is worth paying full price to see at theaters. And even I would watch it again, if only to see the very beginning of the film.
