"Virgil, thats a funny name for a ___________ from Philadelphia, what do they call you up there? "

Moderator note: I don't care if you are quoting a movie, you can't say that here.

Believe it or not, as funny as that clip from the movie is, reading it in the book is even funnier.

This is actually the one film I want to see. That and Tron. LOL No but seriously, I'm hoping it's a bit darker than the previous 1969 movie.

Charles Portis (the original Author) was a good friend of my mother. I met him once, and he signed a copy of the book for me. He got screwed on the royalties from the original film.

Honestly, IMO, remakiing this movie is akin to trying to make Led Zepplin song better. I for one, will noy pay 9$ to see.

I don't pay $9 to see any movie. That's what Netflix is for.

I couldn't wade through 14 pages of this.  Did anyone say "Beerfest"?  Great movie.

For me, the best is, and always will be "Jaws"...  "Smile you sonofa.....BOOM!"

Amen Broither!  The first True Grit is in my top five all-time favs.  I said the same thing.  Then I saw it is a Coen Brothers movie (staring The Dude no less). Now Jeff Bridges is no John Wayne, but hey, Barry Pepper as "Lucky" Ned Pepper... That's a casting coup, no doubt.

I absolutely get the heeby jeebies sitting in a dark room full of sneezing and coughing strangers, so seeing it at the theater for nine bucks ain't gonna happen.  But just think... True Grit done No Country For Old Men style.  That's definetly worth a look.

I'm done with work for the rest of the year. So, my 11-year-old son and I sat down this afternoon and watched a couple of movies on TCM; The Black Stallion and Boys' Town.  Guess it was a bit of a Mickey Rooney fest.

I had forgotten what a great movie The Black Stallion is.  I had never seen Boys' Town before.  Man I really enjoy Christmas and watching classic movies with family!

+1 Though True Grit isn't in my top five, I loved it. The Coen bros are definitely tops. I heard they were remaking it but didn't know who was doing it until I went to a Big Lebowski party a friend hosts every year and we were talking about True Grit. The Coen bros should put their own slant on a classic.

I was surprised to hear that the Coens were making a remake. Im pretty sure it will be good. I dont have to see it on the big screen though.

I also heard from an insider that they are making another western too. Its being closely guarded. Im also looking forward to The Yiddish Policeman's Union. That one should be interesting.

There are so many movies that could use a remake. Not sure why they pic the classics. It is awful ballsy and most of the time just plain awful.

What about a remake of Plan Nine From Outer Space? Aliens and zombies? Sounds like a winning formula to me.

Or how bout Soilent Green? or West World? They destroyed Omega Man though.

The Valley of the Gwangi? That could be a tripped out remake.

There could be only one director for these remakes too....ME.  

Beer, its whats for dinner.

I would love to see Arthur C. Clarke's Childhood's End made into a movie.  It is my favorite SF story. There will be those who would think that the opening scene is a rip-off of Independece Day, when just the opposite is true.

Another fav F&SF series of books that would make awesome movies; Robert Silverberg's "Majipoor" series.
