Which Movie Will Be Better – The New “Carrie” with Chloë Grace Moretz or The Original?
It's a rhetorical question, I know. There's no way of telling until it comes out, but I guess I should rephrase that. Do you like sequels or should they just leave a good movie alone?
You've all seen the movie "Carrie", right? Well I guess Sony pictures is releasing a new version on Oct 18th starring Chloë Grace Moretz , and they wanted to promote it in a unique way. Well, they found it. This is fantastic. They staged a "Punkd" type prank in a coffee shop and they....well, you see-what they did was..... ahhhh- just watch the video. It defies description. It's fantastic, trust me, and has gone viral over the past few days
So that's cute and everything, but it's a sequel! Do you like them in general? I don't, just for the principle of the thing. Come up with your OWN idea, for God sakes.
We've had sequels to Blair Witch, Bridget Jones Diary, Caddyshack, Crocodile Dundee, Speed, Mask, - all great movies in their own right in the original form. All of these sequels were questionable, according to Hitfix.com. but better left alone.
I guess we'll have to wait to see if this one is worth it, but I don't see a reason to repeat something that worked just so they can use all of their special effects to try to update it.
Special effects and computer graphics can't fix a bad story line, and sometimes it can ruin a good one. Agree? Disagree? Would love to know your thoughts
