Don't expect to learn history with this film. "The Patriot" is a mainly action film, full of bloody fight scenes and fitting performances. Some sequences are designed merely as tearjerkers, but there are also comic elements that counterbalance melodrama. Mel Gibson is an appropriate casting choice. Even with its flaws, it is a decent historical flick that's worth giving a try.… Full Review »
I haven’t read the Stephen King novel nor watched Brian De Palma’s (aka the original) version of the movie so I don’t know what I was expecting from this movie.
This movie for some reason did not feel spectacular or brilliant and I am pretty sure most people feel the same.
The movie lacked suspense or any scary moments and I think for a horror movie like Carrie, you should feel the anticipation of suspense.
For some reason I find the special effects to be fake and unrealistic. It felt like it was “gore CGI fest” and it’s not even that gory.
And as for the plot goes, it felt predictable and teenager-y at times which I have no idea why this plot being teenager-y is a bad thing.
Now for the good parts.
I think Kimberly Pierce, the director of the movie, tried really best to make this movie good which she failed, but I see the effort of her trying anyway. Some of the shots of the movie were beautiful to watch so the cinematography of this movie is pretty good.
Chloe Grace Moretz did a good job portraying Carrie. She handled the emotions of the character well, from the vulnerable Carrie to the vengeful Carrie. Chloe Grace Moretz also some great chemistry with the cast here. She had a good chemistry with Ansel Elgort as Tommy Ross but most of all, she had a good chemistry with Julianne Moore as a crazy mother-daughter relationship.
Julianne Moore also did a good job in portraying Margaret White. It may not be her best but she put a lot of effort in acting as her character well.
While the direction and the performances and the chemistry of this movie were great enough, they’re easily overlooked with the movie’s lack of suspense and its lackluster feeling.… Full Review »
The movie was very enjoyable and funny, the perfomance from Barbra and Seth. You must have had a moment just as Seth's character Andy were your mother has embarressed you in public. This movie portrays that well and manages to make it rather funny. It wasn't the funniest movie I have ever seen though I had a couple of laughs throughout. I also got surprised that I recently got to know that Barbra was 70 and as well as that I believe she was a perfect fit for this role, she did a incredible job with it if you ask me.… Full Review »
