The Dude & True Grit

Screw the original and screw John Wayne. Seriously, Is he even considered a good actor outside of cowboy/western circles?

Check out this article about the Coen’s remake of True Grit, which is based more on the original book and doesn’t involve John Wayne hogging the film at the plot’s expense. In this version, Bridges would be playing Wayne’s original role of Rooster Cogburn.


Hollywood, if you’re going to be doing remakes, this is the way to do them.

The dude has spoken.

    They needed someone to handle the layout for the fall edition. Worked on it bit by bit over the last week.
