Re: Movies Seen in 2011

True Grit (2010)

I've been a fan of the original adaptation of Charle Portis' book for years and I still believe it to be the superior film. That said, this was also an excellent adaptation. Jeff Bridges and Hailee Steinfeld were excellent in their respective roles. The pacing is well done and the ending featured in this version fits the overall tone of the picture.

The Warriors (1979)

Sort of a modern day take on the Anabasis of Xenophon. The version I saw was apparently a directors cut that included comic book panels to delineate the various sections of the narrative. The director suceeds in creating a comic book world with the multitude of gangs that inhabit his version of New York City. I'm not sure that the abbreviated love story added anything to the picture.
