True Grit or The Fighter today?

Really torn what to see on the wind blown blizzard aftermath of a day. Can only see one, so which is the better choice out of these incredibly well-recieved 2?

I'm seeing True Grit finally, along with The Kings Speech.

If I had a choice to see either one, it would be True Grit.

I've seen them, and while they're both excellent, True Grit is better.

Both are great, but True Grit gets the edge.

True Grit is better and lends itself to more interesting discussion, particularly concerning its ending. The Boxer is good but a pretty simplistic story. There's not much to it.

Re: True Grit or The Fighter today?

is The Fighter even getting "excellent" reviews? It was my understanding that the film was pretty by-the-numbers with the exception of Christian Bale.

Regardless, go see True Grit.

True Grit, even though I would select The Fighter simply because I haven't seen it.

I was faced with the same dilemma today (minus the snowstorm) and chose to see True Grit (loved it).

I was torn between the same two films the other day. My dad and I ended up seeing True Grit, but we both found it to be pretty ho-hum. It's definitely worth seeing, but I think the praise for it is totally overblown.

Re: True Grit or The Fighter today?

True Grit is probably the better overall movie but I loved the Fighter and for Bale alone it's worth seeing ASAP.

That's easy for you to say--you're down in Texas. You can ride a horse to the theater no matter what the weather.
