How to use gritty in a sentence?

  1. George Brainard:

    The idea of the title was that it was more like the title of a song, there's a real sort of musical aspect to this scene, and (my friend and I) liked the idea of the title being something that was more like a blues song and that would have that sort of energy to go along with this gritty, real, ultra-realism kind of feel.

  2. Kit Harington:

    I think 'Spooks' always wanted to be a film. It wanted to have the big explosion. It wanted to have the sweeping shot of London. It wanted to have bigger action scenes, so, what's similar is that it's still a gritty, spy thriller based in London and still in a very real world. What's different is that it's bigger on scope. We got to do things in this that they couldn't do in the TV show.

  3. Baruch Labunski:

    Viewers tune in to see the nitty-gritty. They do n’t expect polished, scripted content. They want to see regular people tackling regular chores. Bonus points for kids and pets who interrupt... just like real life, it’s the same for marketing ; if you let your authentic self shine through, customers will feel a genuine connection.

  4. Joseph Kahn:

    The trick that I really wanted to do with this was to make that dark and gritty version that everybody keeps talking about, but really do it, really see if I could totally accomplish it with essentially a really incredible incredibly silly property.

  5. Though Lynch:

    This is actually appropriate, because our work is both aspirational, and grounded in gritty reality, today, I stand before you so thrilled, and, frankly, so humbled to have the opportunity to lead this group of wonderful people who work all day and well into the night to make that ideal a manifest reality.
