True Grit Review


Excellent
A western classic. When a young girl's (Kim Darby) father is killed, she recruits old, one-eyed U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn (John Wayne) and joins up with a Texas Ranger (musician Glen Campbell) to hunt him down and kill him. Darby is a spunky actress, and though she can't quite carry the emotional needs of the role, Wayne's Cogburn is one of the highlights of his career. Exciting and soul-searching, the film drags a bit in the middle, but if you're looking for the archetypal western, look no further.

Girls! Girls! Girls! Review


Weak
Ridiculous, this Elvis Presley flick is just an excuse for the King to sing, whether he's holding court on shore or captaining his tuna boat (seriously) -- where the crew handle percussion on their thighs. Ultimately, he gets caught between two girls as he attempts to raise money to buy the boat. Will he go for the rich girl who's going incognito as a nobody, or the dull as nails Robin? Ah, skip it. Presley does have a few appropriately juicy moments of misogyny that are worth a look.
