I get your point. But I laughed through the whole scene so it wasn't boring at all to me.

Yeah, if we're going to complain about long-winded, aureate dialogue in a Coen Bros. film...

It is supposed to be a funny scene.

After just a dozen years I found a still wrapped dvd I bought for 1 euro. So I watched it with the original audio and with subtitles I had no problem getting all of the Bridges mumbled lines (though I had to check what a kingbolt is). But that did little to alter my appreciation of the movie which, if possible, has even gone a step lower. Because the old Hollywood formulae might have been grown stale already by the 40's, let alone 1969, but given the right dialogues and the right actors, they still managed to vivify an otherwise boring flick. Now, this movie it is undoubtedly better shot than the original, with more care for the sets (see the features in the extras of the disc), the costumes and the adherence to a more precise reproduction of the era. But, in the end, what counts is the story, the dialogues, the characters. Take the scene between Mattie and the stable owner: in the 1969 version is all fun, with Darby making fool of the guy brought to exasperation and finally surrendering. Corny, a bit: but alive. In the 2010 version it could have been easily cut, or being related later in a line of dialogue. And the scenes with Wayne in his shack with the Old Chinaman and the cat? I already mentioned my love for the scenes between Darby and Wayne, such a chemistry! Here no chemistry at all, Wednesday and Bridges could be shooting 2 different movies. I could go on and on. I save only 2 scenes, the hi-hanging man and the night shooting at the cabin. 7-8/10
