No, seriously—this is the third time this movie’s been made. You remember, of course, the original, which came out back in 1976 and featured Sissy Spacek (who I like to refer to as the Most Superior Carrie), and then there was this really crappy made-for-TV movie that came out back in 2002, and I’m ashamed to say that I watched it (I didn’t say I liked it; I just watched it). Now we’ve got Chloe Grace Moretz re-doing the character of Carrie for a third time, and guys, I have to tell you, I’m just not that impressed. And what’s with all of the remakes lately anyway? Is there not an original idea left in Hollywood? Don’t these producers and directors read any damn books anymore? There’s TONS of shit to be done, but it seems like everyone’s only interested in doing the “safe” things—i.e., the things that have already achieved a certain level of success.
Oh. And Julianne Moore‘s in it. So there’s that, too.
