True Grit (2010) & The Trip(2010)

True Grit -The new fangled remix of the old fashioned man hunt was a good supplement to my late luncheon of Kao Pad today. Heilee Stienfeld does an excellent job as the revenge driven child in the wild west. Jeff Bridges is great as the drunken old coot and the Coen brothers do a good job with this remake. Worth checking out on Netflix streaming or Epics if you have either, maybe not an essential classic worth owning, but worth the investment of time to watch. B

The Trip - Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon take a culinary trek north in England , mixing comedy with stunning landscapes and minimalist dishes this is a fun mid-life voyage. Not a rollicking comedy, but it does have some moments of hilarity, including a funny contest of Michael Caine impersonations. Worth streaming if you like Coogan's comedic stylings. B-
