I can't find anything wrong with this, but I know it's there. Gotta be somethin'

I've always wanted to see an extended, more detailed version of the catastrophe at the end ( do they have to spoil it for the kids? ) and that's really the only reason to remake this movie. Everyone onboard seems good, but they'll NEVER top that opening scene, I'd like to see 'em try. Can't beat credit bush.

kimberly peirce has a people talent. she's good at spotting the particulars of a person that shape a social life. somewhere in the middle of this movie are 20 or so minutes that i felt accurately portrayed the complexities of individuals and how those complexities fuse into the structures of high school power dynamics. imo, for 20 or so minutes, characters form through believable and realistic representations that help gel the plight of carrie

yet while admiring certain foundational layers and their inclusion, i think they're surrounded by nonsense, and peirce's greatest abilities aren't able to be fully represented. this one starts badly and ends badly. that's some religious and mystical bullshit. chloë moretz gives a fine performance, which helps, but a disappointing dedication to a disappointing genre waters down the full picture

i think carrie 2013 impressively illustrates how people have changed since the original movie, and disastrously illustrates how genre movies have changed since the original. they gotta be all explosive and fantastical now, and from those points they drift from their characters. i'm generalizing. it's not always true. it's true here
