Skewed and Reviewed have posted a positive review of the new "Carrie" film. The review says the film stays closer to the book than previous efforts and has good fx.
I was truly disappointed by the movie. Chloë Grace Moretz could not sell me on being a withdrawn high school girl and you could tell her acting was forced. The over use of effects made Carrie a wizard instead of a person using telekinesis.
For me when I heard of the film all I could ask was why. It has been done before in film and as a TV movie. There was a quasi sequel so why do another one and follow the same story? All they did was up the FX in the film. If people have not seen the original then they may like this but otherwise youdo have to wonder.
