    Forget Matt Damon, it's the Coen Brothers you need to be leery about. After their "F-You" ending in No Country For Old Men, I swore I'd never pay to see another movie of theirs.

    Saw the movie yesterday AM, excellent IMO...

    A little long winded 1st half then picks up nicely 2nd half of movie...

    Matt Damond excellent as the Texas Ranger (politics aside).

    Jeff Bridges is a very credible Rooster Cogburn...

    Josh Brolin very good as Tom Cheney...

    Don't remember who played Mattie but she was very good...

    Solid 3 out of 4 stars from me...

    I can not stomach hypocrit actors who spew the anti-gun BS, then use guns in their movies and profit from it personally.

    If Matt Damon is anti gun, he should refuse to do a movie that has a gun in it.

    You'd be surprized at just how many of the action movie stars are anti-gunners..makes me sick. One that surprized me was Henry Winkler(The Fonz), how'd could the The Fonz be anti gun?

    The Fonz has a lot of crazy ideas if my memory serves me correctly. Kinda like Tom Cruise? Who would have thunk it? Bill

    I personally don't see why this movie needed to be made. How could you ever top the Duke?

    It is frankly pretty appalling to me how the Hollywood Set can be anti gun. they use guns in their movies,they are trained literally for months in gun handling.

    I know for a FACT that Brad and Angelina have a substantial gun collection because I know the guy they get them thru. And it would surprise you the ease that they, because of their postion, can get guns you and I would never even get to hold.

    Henry Winkler I can understand, HE is a New York city liberal.

    By the same token there are many Hollywood types that are very progun but just don't choose to broadcast it.

    I'll see the movie but not til it comes out on Video. Very few movies we'll pay $10 to see. We do have a new movie house in Thousand Oaks that is a really cool movie experience. It costs $20 to get in but the seats are almost big enough for 2, there is a drink table between them, it is steep enough so you never have anyone in front of you, you get free popcorn, and a coke, you can buy Mixed Drinks, Beer and Wine to drink during the movie, and there is a restaurant in the theater you can eat at. The screen is beyond huge. This place is great when you wnat to see something bigger than life like Clash of the Titans, or Starwars type movies. For regular BS movies, it's DVD's at home from my Lazy boy in front of the Big screen (gettin' a new one next week! after christmas sales, woohoo !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

    Merry Christmas to all. hope you have a great day. Hopefully we can all go shooting tomarrow.

    No reason for anyone to support the Hollywood nut jobs. Why watch any movie they make? Mnay better things to do. They don't and won't get my support.

    They have run out of ideas that can be original and worthwhile. Even the bloke that plays James Bond is anti-gun. Like many,,,,they will do anything for a buck.

    The regular utilization of firearms by the "Anti Gun" movie stars in their movies, shows the true depth of their conviction. Can you say counterfeit?

    A quick visit to the Gun Owner's of America web site shows many, many of the Hollywood stars who owe a good part of their fame to the use of guns in their films to have lent their names to anti-gun organizations, and some are even on the board of HCI, Handgun Control INC.

    A few: Josh Brolin, Beau Bridges, Steve Buscemi, George Clooney, Kevin Costner, Sean Connery, Matt Damon, Louis Gossett, JR, Mark Harmon, Paul Newman, Jack Nicholson, Gregory Peck, Robert Redford, Bruce Springsteen, Sylvester Stallone, Eli Wallach, and Ah-NULD.

    Glad to see three of my faves not on list: Sam Elliott, Chuck Norris, and Tom Selleck.

    Think I'll do the same here as I do with politicians...vote at the box office.

    Jeff Bridges did an awesome job of acting the part of Rooster. Very believable and effortless accent and period dialect, where the others appeared forced.
