I know it’s a total cliché for a person who writes about movies for a living to love the Coen Brothers, but some clichés exist because they’re true. The Coen Brothers are just really godd*mn amazing. This is the trailer for True Grit (an closer adaptation of the Charles Portis novel, not a remake of the John Wayne movie, in case some punk at the local tavern starts talking crap to you about it), starring Jeff Bridges as a drunken old Sheriff named Rooster Cogburn who helps a 14-year-old girl hunt down her father’s killer. It’s also got Matt Damon, Barry Pepper, and Josh Brolin, and little kids singin’ old-timey songs a lá O Brother Where Art Thou. In fact, this children’s choir makes the children’s choir in the Social Network trailer look like two retarded kids playing snot kazoos. If you’re not excited about this movie, you are communist and I hate you.
