John Wayne in True Grit.

Rooster Cogburn: I mean to kill you in one minute, Ned. Or see you hanged in Fort Smith at Judge Parker’s convenience. Which’ll it be?
Ned Pepper: I call that bold talk for a one-eyed fat man.
Rooster Cogburn: Fill your hands, you son of a bitch!

I prefer the John Wayne True Grit over the Coen brothers’ version. I was bothered by all the marble-mouthed talking in the Coen’s. I liked it and many parts were actually better, but overall, John Wayne’s just has that something extra. I find it interesting that I’m calling them “John Wayne’s” and “Coen’s” not “Hathaway’s” and “Coen’s” or “Wayne’s” and “Bridges’.” Jeff Bridges is probably one of the best (if not THE best) actors working today, but it’s still the Coen’s movie.
