I have officially seen both the old and new versions of True GritI really enjoyed both of the films.  I was really surprised by how much I liked the older version.  Even though I am a huge fan of all things Western, I am not a big fan of John Wayne.  I find that his movies are usually slow, with little action.  Also, I think John Wayne shows very little grit compared to other Western stars, such as Clint Eastwood.  I thought that John Wayne did a great job in the movie and really showed how tough he could be.  My one problem with the old True Grit, was the actor that played La Boeuf. I thought that Glen Campbell ruined the part.  On the other hand, Matt Damon in the new True Grit did a great job of bringing the character of La Boeuf to life.  I also felt that John Wayne and Jeff Bridges showed that they both had true grit.  On the question of which one was grittier, I think they were both stellar films, but the new one was just a little bit better than the old one because it had some better acting on Matt Damon’s part.

Activision Begin Again

I have always been a fan of the Call of Duty franchise.  I love games such as Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops.  I have no complaint about the games they have been putting out. My problem lies with Activision‘s public image.  Most of my friends think that Activision is an evil company beant on ruling the game world. I think that Activision went too far with the Infinity  Ward debacle. I think Activision must reinvent their public image.  They need to do what EA did by signing smaller companies and giving them creative control.  Until this happens, I will think of Activision as the bad company and not as the one from the past that made great games.
