Inside Llewyn Davis Review. Isn't Terrible, But It's Far Less Than We Had Hoped

Inside Llewyn Davis Review By: MattInRC Inside Llewyn Davis is your typical recent Cohen Brothers flick, which is why we don't like it. The Cohen Brothers are certainly Hollywood's version of the lone wolf. Fiercely independent storytellers who refuse to follow convention, the duo write and direct their productions, a formula which has yielded tasty treats over the years. Fargo and Barton Fink are generally in most people's top 50 movies, while No Country for Old Men has to be on the 'I've seen it once' list of many. Unfortunately, more recent releases have not captured that energy or quirkiness, and Inside Llewyn Davis - while not terrible - is far less than we had hoped. The 1960's singer Llewyn Davis ( Oscar Isaac ) is grumpy and bitter, stuck in a dead-end performance at a local Greenwich, New York club. Davis is experiencing a serious identity crisis, having recently dealt with his singing partner's suicide and struggling t

Matt Damon and Josh Brolin To Star In Remake Of "True Grit"

Matt Damon and Josh Brolin To Star In Remake Of "True Grit" Not sure any man can really step in to John Wayne's Shoes but it looks like Matt Damon is going to see if the shoe fits. Interesting move for the Coen Brothers to go this route with a remake to a 1947 western movie. If anyone can pull it off, it would be these two guys. Matt Damon is in discussions to star in Ethan and Joel Coen 's remake of " True Grit ." Josh Brolin, who starred in the brothers' "No Country for Old Men," is also in talks for a major role. Paramount Pictures and the Oscar-winning writer-director team are moving fast on their re-adaptation of the Charles Portis novel, first reaching out to Jeff Bridges, and now Damon and Brolin, to potentially star. Damon would take on the Glen Campbell role of a Texas Ranger tracking an outlaw along with a gruff U.S. marshal originally played by John Wayne , who won an Oscar for his role in the 1969 Western. All three actors are
