The Coen brothers show their true grit

September 27, 2010 |  4:48 pm

It's been a season for eye-catching, ominous-seeming teasers. "Black Swan" has its melodramatic scares. "The Social Network" gave us campus conniving set to the tune of Radiohead. And now the kings of the dark side of the human soul, the Coen brothers, save some of the creepiest for last with this new teaser for their "True Grit" remake.

Wild beards, John Ford-style photography, spooky voice-overs and music, intimidating stares from Josh Brolin and Jeff Bridges, a "retribution" tag line ... and is that Paul Giamatti dressed up as the dead man? It's "No Country for Old Men" re-imagined in the Old West (or maybe just a more Coen brothers-y "All the Pretty Horses"). December and the Oscar race just got more interesting.

I am happy with the Coen Brothers remaking the old western movie, True Grit. This movie originally starred John Wayne and was fun to watch. I actually saw this film a few months ago during a western movie "-thon", and loved it. What a good idea for Ethan Coen and Joel Coen to remake True Grit, a Hollywood classic that shouldn't be forgotten.

I can't wait to see this one. The trailer looks nice! Coen Brothers' films are must watch for anyone who are passionate about films and film-making, and I hope this movie is as good and entertaining as their previous ones.
