* NeverTrustATrailer: The trailers for the 2010 film gave it a gritty, bleak feel that felt right at home on the heels of ''{{No Country For Old Men}}''. But surprisingly, the Coens filmed a pretty straightforward Western true to the source material, elevated by the acting, the reliably superb Roger Deakins cinematography, and the signature Coens humor. The PG-13 film was probably a lot lighter than some would have expected from the Coen brothers, although the film does have its share of dramatic moments.



* PapaWolf: Rooster and [=LaBoeuf=] both become this for Mattie to a certain extent.

* ConsolationAward: Some saw Creator/JohnWayne's Oscar win as compensation for not giving it to him sooner.

* ConsolationAward: Some saw ConsolationAward: Creator/JohnWayne's Best Actor win is seen as a consolation for him not winning the award for his work in films like ''Film/RedRiver'', ''Film/TheQuietMan'', ''Film/TheSearchers'', and ''Film/SandsOfIwoJima'' (though Wayne was at least nominated for the latter). To this day, majority of people strongly feel that Creator/DustinHoffman should have one his much deserved Best Actor Oscar win as compensation for not giving it to him sooner.his gritty, heartbreaking performance in ''Film/MidnightCowboy''.

** And one of those nominations was Creator/HallieSteinfeld for Best ''Supporting'' Actress, despite her clearly playing the main protagonist. Considering that she would've been going up against Creator/NataliePortman for ''Film/BlackSwan'' (a guaranteed win) it was probably assumed that she would have had a better chance at winning in the Supporting category.

* RetroactiveRecognition: At the end of the 1969 film, Cogburn is congratulated for his heroics by [[Franchise/WinnieThePooh Piglet]].



** It's been pointed out too. There's one picture on the internet comparing 1969 Mattie to Justin Bieber. Looking at the picture, they could've been twins.
*** Of course, this isn't the first time Justin Bieber's appearance has been compared to a girl's.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: At one point; [[Music/{{Carpenters}} Karen Carpenter]] was considered for the role of Mattie in the 1969 version before Kim Darby was cast in that role.

** The 2010 movie had ''ten'' Oscar nominations, but no wins -- making it tied with ''GangsOfNewYork'' and ''AmericanHustle'' for second place among the biggest losers in Academy history.

** There's also a moment in the beginning of the 2010 movie when Mattie buys her horse and declares her intention to name him "Little Blackie"-- to the ''young black stablehand'' who tells her it's a fine name.

* AwesomeMusic: Music/ElmerBernstein....being Elmer Bernstein.
** Music/CarterBurwell's score is also quite awesome in the film itself, using the hymn "Leaning On the Everlasting Arms" to ''great'' effect.
