I'm sorry, but I'm not the biggest John Wayne fan and would not see the original if it was reccomended to me. (yes, let the hate messages begin) That being said, I found the Jeff Bridge/Hailee Steinfeld version to be a truly good ORIGINAL western (more hate messages) and would proudly place it next to "Unforgiven" as one of the greatest westerns of all time. I made a top 10 of 2010 list last year, and placed it as number two. I even praised Hailee Steinfeld's performance (who would've been a good head-to-head with Portman if she was nominated in the BEST ACTRESS role instead of it being a clear expected victory) and, if she makes good decisions in the future, will grow up to be an outstanding actress. The film itself should've walked away with 3 or 4 wins instead of the number of wins it actually walked away with: ZERO.

Sorry too be so disrespectful against John Wayne if I offended anybody. That's for another post.
