Rooster and Friends

I'm not kidding. Stephen Hunter likes the new film version of "True Grit":

Each of these fellows has a face that looks like a leather cushion dragged behind a pickup over 40 miles of bad road, so that the movie also has a tone of random grotesqueness for fans of bad orthodonture and nostrils the size of volcanoes.

Going to see it Monday. Think I'll watch the original this weekend. I'll let you know.

The word is that the latest one is much closer to the book. I'm encouraged by that.

I eagerly await your review.
