‘Let Me In’ Trailer Raises Expectations - Screen Rant
Looks weird. Not so sure about this one
I heard good things about the original film, and that one really exceeded my expectations.
Was not looking forward to yet another American remake, but since one "must" happen, I'm glad it looks to be as close to the source material as it is. I probably won't see it anyway, but I'm much more optimistic about the project now thanks to the trailer.
Let the Right One In is an amazing movie, cant imagine the american remake will be as good but their is enough material in the novel the film is based on that was not in the original film to make a remake potentially quite interesting if they use that material to make it a different film. Theirs no point making a remake thats the same as the original.
Fixin' what ain't broke.
The original was great, no Americans would have had a problem with seeing it. It's a weird sort of demi-racist thing, I swear, the idea Hollywood has that Americans just will not see movies not made by American studios.
Not gonna bother, they couldn't and likely won't improve on it one iota.
Its not that its "I have to read? F*ck that!" I heard that all the time at the video store I worked at when I would recomend films such as Ran, Seven Samurai, Nikita, El Mariachi, Cinema Paradiso. As soon as I would say "Its subtitled" it was like I said the movie would jump out of the player, take a shit on your rug, hit on your daughter, and piss in your corn flakes. To me, good movies are good movies, whether they are subtitled or not
The reaction I hear the most is 'I go to the cinema to watch a film not to read' which always sounds really ignorant and makes me think the person saying it is a little thick.
I love subtitles, actually. Even when I'm watching English movies, I still turn the subtitles on.
Sometimes thats the only way you can understand wtf the actors are saying.
You know sometimes...being a rather intelligent and educated person, I will think that maybe I am being a little arrogant when I occasionally look down a bit at "the masses".
Then people like you come along and reveal that no, no I'm not. Every one of those films you have listed there are incredible works of cinema and will broaden the horizons of the viewer, even just a little bit, if watched with an open mind.
But I guess it's too hard to read basic sentences at the same time, huh?
I personally have no issues watching movies with subtitles, and somewhat enjoyed Let the Right One In, but all things being equal, I'd definitely go with a movie without subs. When a movie has subs, and you're forced to read, then your focus is drawn to the lower portion of the film constantly and so you don't get the proper viewing experience IMO.
