(favorite question from this quiz: “How many times have you died?”)
And in the more general “Which BSG Character…?” quiz, I am Boomer/Sharon…or, basically, the same result!
I met a memorable character last weekend – fourteen-year-old Mattie Ross, narrator and central focus of True Grit. I’m not a big fan of Westerns, generally – and even less a fan of Westerns associated with John Wayne – and had been mostly lukewarm about seeing the remake of the 1969 movie. However, as I heard more and more favorable word about the new film, I became more interested; my husband, who shares neither my general ambivalence toward Westerns nor my particular aversion to those associated with John Wayne, was already intrigued. We saw the movie the day after Christmas, and I highly recommend it. My understanding is that this version follows the novel that inspired it more closely than the first film version did, focusing more on the girl who seeks to bring her father’s murderer to justice than on the U.S. Marshal who reluctantly helps her, Rooster Cogburn (played by John Wayne in the 1969 movie and by Jeff Bridges in the new one) – and now I really want to read the book and meet Mattie in her original form.
