My favourite films are a strange and largely unconnected bunch, and when one of the ‘older’ ones gets a remake it is a big deal. There are some films that I just think should never be remade, like the Blues Brothers for example. Others, like True Grit could be great. Time will tell.
At least I think that Jeff Bridges will be great in the roll, and I do think that Matt Damon is a good solid actor. So it should be a good movie. I won’t have to wait long to find out.
