Another remake that makes the list over the original. It started off as a novel by Charles Portis, then was made into a movie starring John Wayne in 1969, then another one was made in 1978 and now this newest one, released in 2010. I haven’t seen the old ones so I can’t really compare, but this one was pretty good.
First thing that comes to mind is Hailee Steinfeld, the little girl who plays Mattie, very impressive acting from a thirteen year old girl. She won the part over 15,000 other girls.
I would say it was more of a comedy than it was a drama, I was interested but waiting for it to end.
Something I think I need to introduce would be a rating system, for those movies in between love and hate… So on a scale from 1-10, 1 being hate and 10 being love, I’d give it a 5.
