True Grit (2010)

True Grit (2010)
Headstrong teenager, Mattie Ross, is bound and determined to make Tom Chaney pay for the coldblooded murder of her father. She gets more than she bargained for when she hires tough U.S. Marshall, Rooster Cogburn, to track the killer into hostile territory, especially when Texas Ranger, LaBoeuf, comes along for the ride. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching 2010’s “True Grit”.

∙ The front close-up of Mattie when she rides the horse out of the water shows the top and front of her hat is wet. She rides up to Rooster and LaBoeuf a few seconds later and the close-up of her shows her hat is dry.

∙ LaBoeuf and Rooster start to argue when Mattie threatens to ride back to the Marshall’s office. During the close-up of Rooster when his hand is on the saddle horn, his gun and holster are next to the horn. It cuts to a front view of LaBoeuf and the gun and holster have moved farther down. Before the end of the scene, the gun and holster have moved back to its original position.

∙ Rooster sends Mattie up the tree to cut the hanging man down. When the man hits the ground, Rooster kicks him over. In the overhead view, the man’s right leg is crossed over his left and the right part of his coast is closed. Rooster looks up when he hears someone approaching and the body has moved—the legs are uncrossed and the jacket is completely open. Rooster’s shadow has also moved. In the overhead view, Rooster’s shadow was originally behind him. Afterwards, even though he was in the same place, it fell in front of him.

∙ Mattie’s hat flies off when she gets knocked down by Ned. The hat originally falls to her right and it lands on its side. When Ned yells “I’ve already thought it over”, the hat is just above her head. In the far view, it’s to Mattie’s right and on its side. But when Ned pulls her up, the hat is sitting on its top as she picks it up.

∙ CAUTION: May Contain Spoilers! When an adult Mattie goes to the Wild West Show in Memphis meet Rooster, the date on the show bill is July 18, 1903. She talks to the two men and the one says that Rooster died three days before. When she’s visiting his grave, the date of death on his tombstone reads August 12, 1903.
