True Grit

Jeff Bridges and Hailee Steinfield in True Grit.

There are a couple films out right now worth talking about. We have our love story, our drama, a romantic comedy, and a comedy starring an offensive alien!

First up on the list is a movie called True Grit. It stars Jeff Bridges as Rooster Cogburn, Matt Damon (The Fighter) as LaBoeuf and new rising star, Hailee Steinfeld as Mattie Ross.

We loved this film and would 100% recommend!

Synopsis (From screenrush.co.uk):

Following the murder of her father by a drifter named Tom Chaney, 14-year-old Mattie Ross sets out to capture the killer and avenge her father’s death. She enlists the help of the toughest U.S. marshal she can find, a certain Reuben J. “Rooster” Cogburn who the child has heard has ‘true grit’ and insists on accompanying him on the hunt. Rooster’s drinking, sloth, and generally reprobate character do not bring her much comfort but after some negotiation the unlikely pair set off into the Indian Nations in search of Chaney. They are joined by Texas Ranger LaBoeuf, who wants Chaney for his own purposes.

Just Go With It

If your looking  for a romantic comedy, this is your movie. It stars the lovely Jennifer Aniston (Friends TV star) and funny man Adam Sandler. Although it still bemuses us how Sandler manages to get with all the hotties!!
