If you’ve been following my video reviews, you’ll know I did a nice long video the other night about Kimberly Peirce’s 2013 version of Stephen King’s Carrie. You can watch that video here. I’m going to repeat a few things in my analysis, but I also want to repeat that 1) I haven’t read the book 2) I don’t believe that you should compare two movies that are both adapted from other source material 3) It’s been about 10+ years since I’ve seen De Palma’s Carrie, so I couldn’t do that even if I were inclined to do so.
If you follow me on Tumbr or Twitter, or like the Facebook page, you’ve probably seen my video review series that I started earlier in September. In that series, I reviewed Gone Girl right after I saw it on Thursday night, trying to be as spoiler free as possible, since I figured many people probably hadn’t seen it yet. You can watch that review here:
My friend Ryan from The Matinee asked me to be on his podcast about the film on Sunday. This was a very spoiler-filled discussion and let me really say how I felt about the film. You can listen to that podcast here. This is definitely a divisive film and one that everyone will be talking about. I didn’t like it, but I’m glad I saw it.
