rumors of coen brother's next film
am i the only person that did not like true grit? well, didn't like is too strong. it was an average throw-away movie. and no. i wasn't the only one, thankfully i have cvd, who also shared in the averageness. by box office sales, it is the coen brother's biggest hit, which should be a little telling about the quality.
just look at some their filmography:
you get the idea
it's strewn with amazing-ness, awesome-ness, great talent mixed with masterful skill. BUT not a single blockbuster. critically acclaimed stuff for sure, but no blockbuster till true grit. it was something for the masses and not even close to their best work. every single one of those movies i listed is better than true grit. i just don't understand why people liked this movie. maybe it was just cause it was the coens, and they can do no wrong? maybe because it was better than the original (which sucked)? who knows.
but i will say that i would very much look forward to a horror film. in the interview, it seems like their joking, but i hope not.
