Saw the new version of True Grit. It was very good and I don't like westerns.
I couldn't watch the sad horse part, as I could tell what was coming, so I went into the kitchen to pour myself a beverage. Maybe it's strange but I can watch all sorts of bad things happen to people in movies and it doesn't bother me a bit, just don't have an animal in peril. That's why I didn't watch Legend, because I know that the dog dies in it.
Any view of things that is not strange, is false.
