One of the biggest, most-hyped movies for the Christmas holiday season is the Ethan and Joel Coen remake of “True Grit,” starring Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon. Many people regard the original 1969 version, starring John Wayne and Glen Campbell, as the consummate American Western. I’ve seen the remake, and can’t post my review until it debuts on December 22nd. Stay tuned. For now, watch the trailer below (followed by the trailer for the 1969 original), and let us know in the comments if you saw the original, whether you liked the original, and whether you plan to see the remake. Why or why not? For some of you, Matt Damon movies are anathema because of his uber-Marxist, Howard Zinn-infected politics. If that’s the case, let us know. “I feel ya.” For others, will Matt Damon’s keep you from seeing it, even if you find the reviews end up more favorable than not?
