True Grit ,true grit trailer, john wayne, true grit review, true grit reviews, true grit trailer 2010
A variety of films arrive just in time for Christmas moviegoing this week. Wednesday saw the openings of the Coen brothers' retelling of the classic Western (starring Jeff Bridges) "True Grit," and the third movie in the Ben Stiller/Robert De Niro comedy series, "Little Fockers." (Read reviews of both now at www.seattletimes.com/movies.) Just one movie opens on Friday, the debut drama from writer/director Lena Dunham, "Tiny Furniture." On Saturday you can see the much-buzzed-about drama starring Colin Firth, "The King's Speech"; the film adaptation of David Lindsay-Abaire's play starring Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart, "Rabbit Hole"; and a new adaptation of the Jonathan Swift story featuring Jack Black in the title role, "Gulliver's Travels." See Friday's MovieTimes for reviews.
Meet The Fockers Reviews Are Terrible — True Grit Trailer Is Awesome
Burning money seems like far too much of a waste, and punching yourself in the genitals seems like it could be a lot of effort – so you might as well combine the two activities together. Go see Meet the Little Fockers this weekend.
Meet The Parents was a great example of a one-off movie – it was easy to do, it was funny (at the time), and it wasn’t overripe with Hollywood try-hard. The universe tends to balance itself out, though, so the next installment was full to the brim, complete with the worst sound-editing of any movie in recent memory. And now the sequel comes.
The reviews aren’t pretty. Every critic with eyes and a pulse is ripping the movie apart, calling it a tired exercise, using every focking pejorative construct they can think of with the focking title. You don’t need three sequels to a comedy. This is a man perpetually trying to impress his wife’s parents – not an epic poem by Ovid.
If you’re going to the cinemas this weekend, a far better alternative would be to watch True Grit. Which would you rather watch, gorgeous cinematography or Dustin Hoffman talking about poop?
The trailer’s above. Make the right decision this weekend.
