Brian and I have been anticipating seeing the remake of the old John Wayne movie, True Grit. This evening we got our chance and enjoyed it very much. Nice throwback to the old Westerns, but naturally they had to update it with a generous helping of blood and gore so it would fit into the taste of present day moviegoers.
I have gotten very adept at covering my eyes, plugging my ears, and trying to block out the images that my imagination replaces for the ones I am not seeing. The power of suggestion is a powerful thing. Success! I was able to stay for the whole movie.
By most standards this is quite a tame movie. For me, I feel triumphant that Brian didn't have to scoop me off the floor.
And I did miss Glen Campbell and the old sountrack....
