True Grit is a powerhouse film with amazing performances from every single actor involved. This all-star cast includes Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin and an unrecognizable Barry Pepper. Each actor brings something to the table that elevates their character to a whole other level. But even with these guys anchoring the film, the true star is Hailee Steinfeld who is nothing short of a revelation here. She not only holds her own against the likes of Bridges and Damon, but actually surpasses them and steals every scene that she is in. Her Oscar nomination was justified. Honestly, she gave the performance of the year in my book.

For every person that complains about remakes (I'm guilty of that), there comes along a group of actors and filmmakers (Joel and Ethan and Cohan) that can justify taking an old classic and making it something even more. Just an amazing piece of film making here. What's mind blowing is that out of 10 Oscar nominations, it won 0. Shameful.

This is definitely a Buy.

I'm not a fan of Western's not matter how good they are. I was not up for it, it did not do much for me, so meh. Rent it is all I can say.

Most over-rated movie of the past year. And I love westerns.
