30 Days of Barry Pepper

Day 9 - Most overrated character: Lucky Ned Pepper

First of all I want to say that I love his performance in this movie. I can’t deny. However the movie annoys me in some parts although it’s pretty good. One of the things is Barry’s character, Ned Pepper. He’s overrated a lot and he just shows up less than 5, 6, 7 minutes of True Grit. Everyone mentions his name all the time and when I watched it for the first time, I thought I’d see him more. Unfortunately I got disappointed but that doesn’t spoil True Grit at all. Steven Spielberg is one of the executive producers and the movie got 10 nominations for the Oscar.

Another thing that annoys me is because Hailee Steinfeld’s name isn’t even in the main actors’ names in the poster. C'mon, I think she deserves more attention than Josh Brolin (who nearly shows up as well). But this is nothing to do with the subject of this post.
