Last month, the trailer for Let Me In was released. It's a remake of the Swedish movie Let the Right One In from 2007. The thing that really hit me when I saw this trailer was how similar looking it was to the original movie... like the frame-by-frame type of similarity. I think the movie is going for the type of remake in the vein of Gus Van Sant's Psycho (1998). Rather than adding their own spins on the movie, they stay loyal to the material in reproducing every scene. I'm not sure how I feel about these type of remakes. I mean, if you're going that route, why not just tell people to watch the original? But at least in this case, it's bringing an original story to a fresh new audience. I wasn't fully enamored with the original but I did enjoy it. We'll see how the reviews turn out for this one. Have a good weekend geeks!
It's time for another edition of Review Haikus; a feature I like to write when I'm too lazy to write out full reviews~!!! The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 Tony Scott schlockfest~! All his movies seem the same. A needless remake. Denzel's a bad-ass. Given up on Travolta. 1 of 2 ain't bad. Public Enemies Well? Disappointed. I expected more from Mann. The pacing felt off. Acting was good though. Man-crush on Depp and Bale. 5 more syllables! Saw VI Yes, another Saw. Harder to tell them apart. Blood, guts, bad story. Why more Saw movies? Each movie makes less and less. End this series now. ====== Later geeks!
