Monday Movie Review

I never saw the original Carrie, nor have I read the book. (Although I did see the sequel Carrie 2 back in high school if that counts for something.) But even so, it would have been pretty impossible to go into this not knowing the story. I think the lack of fear of the unexpected is part of the reason I wanted to see the movie. I don't normally see scary movies, but since I knew what was coming how scary could it be?

In a lot of ways, that though played out, because it really wasn't that scary. Instead though, the scariest parts for me were all the girl vs. girl cruelty. That was the hardest part for me to watch, and was in a lot of ways heartbreaking.

Chloe Grace Moretz was awesome in this, and actually the main reason I wanted to see this. So far I've loved everything she's been in, And while I know I said this in my review of Kick Ass 2, I can't wait to see what else is to come from her.

  1. I'm on the fence about this one. I enjoyed the original a lot. I might wait for the DVD.
