I guess True Grit would have been even better if Chaney had killed LaBoeuf off camera, then flipped one of the gold coins and decided to also kill Mattie off camera, and then on his way back into town been run over by a random ox cart and lurched off into the sunset. All while Rooster cowered around the campfire like a pussy talking about how things were just too tough out there. WOO HOO!
