This may be the most pointless remake ever... And to do it not after the original was even released.
I'm fairly sure it's another adaptation of the novel, rather than a remake of the Swedish film.
It might be good. I'm going to refrain from slagging it off until I have an actual reason to.
it will not be a patch on Let the Right One In. Completely pointless.
but the casting makes me think it might not be as utterly terrible as i had imagined. I'll probably still go and see it
TASTE MY FANGS YOU CUNTS
it's looking like an almost shot for shot remake. Check the top picture in this news article, it's eerie:
But still, I'm quite looking forward to seeing Let Me In. The Swedish film is quite possibly my favourite ever, and is utterly untouchable in my opinion. I can't see this being better than it, but that's because I can't see anything being better than it. I'm still interested to see what someone else got from the source material though.
I do find the attitude that this is a stupid, pointless endeavour (evidenced more in the comments in the link you've given than here), that this film will be rubbish or that, if it is indeed rubbish, it will somehow tarnish the original to be a bit daft though. No-one has seen it yet the original will remain great even if this is shocking.
That'd be a few extra points in its favour
One of the best climactic scenes in any film.
I literally can't even attempt to understand how you could dislike the second half of this film.
Get outta town.
It's certainly revitalised the genre but the whole Vampire young gothic romance shit has been about for years.
I actually have an MA in Vampirism and I think it revolutionised everything. SO THERE!
just sparkly and pretty and lame <3
Count Duckula did that YEARS ago.
You should probably have ended it with JOKEZZZ since you were talking such rubbish just before it was hard to tell. ;-)
have been doing it (hurr hurr) for so long
all twlight did was give it a shove through the mainstream door - unless you count Anne Rice in which case meyer can fuck right off.
in terms of actually bringing something new to genre let the right one in is the only game in town at the end of this last decade.
Mine is that you're insane and probably have no eyes
She's definitely lost 91 seats but the bad feeling doesn't yet have an overall majority.
i can't imagine the remake 'fixing' this 'problem'
which in that thread of the plot is almost exactly the same as the source material - if anything it's subtler in the movie.
(possibly even bringing back the deformed-paedo-monster version of Hakan from the book)
but considering what a perfect job the author did of adapting the novel for the first film, trimming the fat cutting it down to it's simple sensitive quiet core, I can't help but feel that this version will be completely redundant.
Someone in the comments says that the characters in the original had no 'warmth' about them and they want to see more of that. That'd be so wrong, reading the novel it's the coldness of the characters, the place and their relationships that makes the kids coming together seem so right.
The boy and his parents, his outcast status at school, the bullies, Hakan unable to go near Eli but utterly devoted to her.
Even the drunks were almost still friends merely out of habit.
I'm more angry about the remake of the orphanage, to be honest.
quarantine/rec was a shot for shot remake wasn't it?
for anyone foolish enough not to have seen the original and in possession of a Sky subscription, it is on at 11.05 on Frifay night on FX.
early onset of a breakdown…
i imagine this one will be 6/10
