True Grit – Coen brother style

I absolutely love the Coen brothers, so I get excited about every movie they do, but how can you not be excited about True Grit? Allegedly, this is a much closer adaptation of the Charles Portis novel, then that of the 1969 John Wayne movie. The question you now have to ask: Is Jeff Bridges > John Wayne? While I really enjoy John Wayne like any red-blooded American, I am going to say yes, Bridges will be a better Rooster Cogburn, the drunken sheriff that helps a young girl hunt down her father’s killer to exact some Old West justice.
