“True Grit” reactions hit the Web – AWARDS SEASON ROUNDUP

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: HollywoodNews.com’s Awards Season Roundup collects insights from around the Internet on films that are running in the Oscar race.

There were so many “True Grit” reviews on Twitter today, you’d assume the movie was opening this Friday. It isn’t. You won’t be able to see Joel and Ethan Coen’s western until Dec. 22. But Oscar bloggers seem to be in love with it. Anne Thompson writes that the Coens “are at the top of their game, honoring the great John Ford with a tip of the hat to Anthony Mann.” HitFix’s Drew McWeeny writes that “True Grit” is “one of the most crowd-pleasing films I think the Coens have ever made, accessible and simple and mythic and beautiful.” But Erik Davis of Cinematical says the film “isn’t quite the masterpiece some were expecting, but it’s so much fun to watch that many will leave the theater thirsting for more.” And Emanuel Levy declares it’s “not as great a picture as the Coens’ No Country for Old Men.” The one, true condemnation of the film seems to come from Jeff Wells, who says the film, “while beautifully made with some deliciously formal old-west dialogue (much of it straight from the Charles Portis novel, I gather) and a smart, spunky debut performance from Hallie Steinfeld, is essentially a cold and mannered ‘art’ western that matters not.”

This isn’t Oscar news, though film trackers will want to know that the first round of Sundance 2011 titles has been revealed.
