The Bridges' movie came closer to the book. Maybe I am not much of a movie judge but I liked bouth.

I liked both. The newer one was more accurate towards the book as best I can remember. Been about five years since I read it.

I watched 30 to 45 minutes of this movie last night on netflix.

The new one with the Bridges guy.

Quite possibly the worst movie I have ever seen in my life.

I was really shocked how bad it was.

Just my opinion though.




heard that. but i aint much on westerns anyway

Worst movie you've ever seen? That's either a bald-face lie, of you don't get out much. Heck, I can ace that with a dozen movies and never even shift my feet while perusing the flicks at the store!

I was biased against it as a John Wayne remake, but danged if I didn't enjoy the new one! I read the book in there as well, which made me appreciate the new one a little more than I might have.

Actually my biggest complaint was that I could not for the life of me fit Matt Damon into the film.
