I am also spectical about the Hollywood remake as I adored the Swedish original. How was the pool scene? :)

they pulled it off Pete, I shit you not. This Matt Reeves kid might have the touch.

pool scene was awesome. included a car crash scene with the "father" that will blow your mind. The actor that plays "the father" is so much more heartbreaking, the casting is better across the board, even the bullies are better and there's some subtext with them that wasn't present in the original. it's a f*cking beautifully shot movie and I didn't think Cloverfield was special at all. I can't say enough, I would go today if I were you.

Wow. I'm literally f*cking stunned beyong belief. Myself and Thorpe knew this was being remade months ago and we've been complaining since then. The last thought in my mind was them being able to pull it off.

Mark me down as one who was also very spectical. The original was so beautiful and haunting. I actually had little desire to see the remake, but LD has injected some excitement into it for me. I will certainly give it a chance.

I figured it was going to be better than your average remake since it has an 88% on RT and a 7.3 on iMDB, but better than the original? I'm going to have to take that with a grain of salt, no offense LD.

I went to see Inception the other day, which also was my first time at the movies in I don't know how long, and it was well worth the ticket.

I wasn't a fan of Let the Right One In, thus I'm not too optimistic about Let Me In.
