True Grit (1969)

I enjoyed the Coen's version of this tale - and so did the box office apparently with it becoming the second highest grossing western after 'Dances' . Apparently going back to the original novel but never mind they are both great films - this one is probably my favourite but that's nostalgia for you... wiki on the 2010 movie

True Grit trailer

This current Coen Brothers remake of the Wayne classic looks good but my son who has seen it reckons the mumbling was such that subtitles are needed. Shame.

Attack on Leningrad (2009)

My son got me this film for Christmas - it's very good - this part - the beginning has an excellent action sequence that leads you into the movie. A Russian production but made with an eye to the international market with Gabriel Byrne as a Journalist. Imdb here

Happy New Year

Here is me and Big Rich playing with the Otis Blackwell song. In our kitchen.
