Season of the witch

I already watched season of the witch.Great film by the way.Nicolas is amazing in it with all those flashbacks. <div id="TB_caption" class="jcarousel-clip"> <div> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="" class="ext">forex</a><span class="ext"></span></p> </div> </div>

True Grit is Truly absorbing!

This film is at times dark and morbid, but it is exciting in the way of many films in the era which it was first made. I believe Jeff Bridges may have received an award for the very odd-ball character that he played. Josh Brolin played a devious character, who was being stalked by a teenager who believed that he killed her father. He played the menace with great authenticity. The only criticism that I have is that with his great talent the part was not big enough. I wish he had appeared more than he did in the film. Matt Damon played a forest ranger with a nasty streak. It was a different kind of character than what Matt Damon usually plays. It does display his versatility as an actor. This is a great film if you love westerns! Have a great summer. Blessings to you and yours! Geraldine Nathan
