Obligatory post about tonight's Game of Thrones episode because it was all kinds of depressing. I'm pretty sure I want to quit the show while I'm ahead, but I won't because the show is too good.

Buried



Buried-poster

Directed by: Rodrigo Cortes
Written by: Chris Sparling
Cast: Ryan Reynolds
Studio: Lionsgate
Genre: Horror, Thriller
Official Site: www.experienceburied.com
Plot: But when he wakes up six feet underground with no idea of who put him there or why, life for the truck driver and family man instantly becomes a hellish struggle for survival. Buried with only a cell phone and a lighter, his contact with the outside world and ability to piece together clues that could help him discover his location are maddeningly limited. Poor reception, a rapidly draining battery, and a dwindling oxygen supply become his worst enemies in a tightly confined race against time, fighting panic, despair and delirium, Paul has only ninety minutes to be rescued before his worst nightmare comes true. (Lionsgate)

Review:

BURIED is a suspenseful film that succeeds in putting you at the edge of your seats. In other words, it does its job. For those of you who are wondering if it's possible to make a good and interesting film that takes place entirely in a coffin with one on screen character, yes, it is possible. There's just so much you can do in a coffin, but screenwriter Chris Sparling found some pretty creative things to put into the film.

Usually in a film with one character, the actor who plays that character should be up to the task to carry the film on his or her shoulders. Fortunately, Ryan Reynolds succeeds in doing so. I love how Reynolds is doing more serious roles to show off his talent and it shows here. I really felt like rooting for his character. I would also like to give a shout out to the editing and cinematography departments because of how inventive they tried to tell the story in an interactive way. The soundtrack by Victor Reyes also brings up the film.

It's not the best thriller ever, but if a film that takes place entirely in a coffin with one character succeeds in engrossing the audience, you know the film is good. It's claustrophobic and tense and benefits mainly from Chris Sparling's creative screenplay and Ryan Reynolds's acting chops; in other words, the two most important things to any film.

RELEASE OF ACTUALLY GOOD VAMPIRE MOVIE MAKES AUDIENCES SICK OF VAMPIRE MOVIES FOR SOME REASON

This is taken from an IMDb user. This is not my work:

This weekend brought a particularly strange box-office report: a vampire movie performed poorly.

Box-office experts were stunned upon recieving this news. So far, they have not confirmed any single explanation for the event, but many theories are pointing to the fact that it was because the movie was actually good.

The movie, "Let Me In," a remake of the swedish hit "Let the Right One In" was expected to debut within the moderate vampire movie range of $20-140 million, but ended up scoring only about $6 million.

"It just doesn't make sense," said one box office analyst. "We're in the middle of the biggest vampire revolution the world of entertainment has ever witnessed, AND it was a remake. How could this happen?" Many analysts shared his opinions on this bizarre occurrence, saying things such as, "What the hell?", "Holy *beep* and "Well, duh, Cloverfield sucked."

The trend of vampire movies over the past few years has had Hollywood dying to sink their teeth into just about anything vampire-related and turn it into a mediocre movie or TV show. Just as long as it ended up being bad. But "Let Me In" was different.

"I knew I smelled trouble from the time we signed Matt Reeves on to direct that we were headed for failure," said the head of distributor Overture pictures, "but we kept our faith in him that he could prove us wrong and make a truly lame film." That turned out to be a big mistake when young child actress Chloe Grace Moretz was signed on to play the role of Abby, the young vampire protagonist.

Fresh off a wave of acclaim for her turn as a pint-sized assassin in "Kick-Ass", Moretz threatened to derail the entire project when the studio feared that the movie might end up suffering from surprisingly good performances, rather than adhering to the soap opera-grade level of acting that has brought Hollywood such great success over the years, as a result of her talent.

From that point forward, the studio watched in horror as Reeves proceeded to hire more actually-good actors, such as Richard Jenkins, Elias Koteas, and young Kodi Smit-McPhee of "The Road." With each passing day, Reeves also jeapordized Hollywood's legacy of *beep* remakes by staying true to the original film.

"The guy would just walk on set like he owned the place, and instead of having the kid take his shirt off or look at Moretz with emotionless eyes, he told him to let her show him how to play a *beep* Rubik's Cube. Who the hell is this guy? Does he know nothing about making vampire movies?" said the head of Overture.

All they could do from then was pray that things would turn out okay upon the film's release. But early great reviews were coming in fast, and hope started to diminish. "It's all over. No one's gonna want to make a vampire movie ever again after this. And it's all our fault."

"Let Me In" currently stands at 86% on RottenTomatoes, and many critics have called the film one of the better remakes to come out of Hollywood in many years.

The Social Network



The-social-network-poster1

Directed by: David Fincher
Written by: Aaron Sorkin
Cast: Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake, Andrew Garfield, Rashida Jones, Max Minghella, Rooney Mara, Dakota Johnson, Brenda Song, Armie Hammer, Josh Pence
Studio: Columbia Pictures
Genre: Drama
Official Site: www.thesocialnetwork-movie.com
Plot: On a fall night in 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer programming genius Mark Zuckerberg sits down at his computer and heatedly begins working on a new idea. In a fury of blogging and programming, what begins in his dorm room soon becomes a global social network and a revolution in communication. A mere six years and 500 million friends later, Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire in history...but for this entrepreneur, success leads to both personal and legal complications. (Sony Pictures)

Review:

THE SOCIAL NETWORK is not about Facebook. It's about Mark Zuckerberg and the people associated with him and the consequences that arise with the evolution of Facebook. In an even broader sense, it's about friends being driven apart due to money and betrayal. Because of this, it's no surprise that many have already compared this to CITIZEN KANE. And it's not just the similarities in themes that are astounding, it's the quality as well...[more]...

If you are too lazy to read my review for LET ME IN, let me say this: It's better than the original film because it focuses more on the relationship between the two kids, which is essentially what these films are about. It's one of the best films of the year. 9/10

I think they equally portray it. The original hits on deeper elements that the remake left out. Either way I gave LET ME IN the same score as you. The original is a 10 tho!

Let Me In



Let-me-in-quad-poster

Directed by: Matt Reeves
Written by: Matt Reeves
Cast: Kodi Smit-McPhee, Chloe Moretz, Richard Jenkins, Elias Koteas, Cara Buono, Sasha Barrese
Studio: Overture Films
Genre: Horror, Thriller
Official Site: www.letmein-movie.com
Plot: An alienated 12-year-old boy befriends a mysterious young newcomer to his small New Mexico town, and discovers an unconventional path to adulthood. (Overture Films)

Review:

Ignore the marketing for the film. LET ME IN is not an action-oriented horror film. Those who have seen the original Swedish film, LET THE RIGHT ONE IN, would already know this. What LET ME IN is, is a thoughtful, harrowing, and heartfelt journey of a boy who befriends a girl who just happens to be a vampire. It's like a romance with horror elements. LET ME IN takes what made the original film so special, that is, the relationship between the two kids, Owen and Abby, and puts a lens focus on it. This, I say cautiously, is why I believe LET ME IN is the better of the two. In fact, the film puts less emphasis on the adult supporting characters and more focus on the young in the film. You don't even get to see Owen's mother's face...[more]...

Well, got the confirmation a couple of minutes ago that the lockdown was lifted. We can "safely" walk around the UT campus right now. Yeah, right. I'm still staying in my dorm.

I'll surely check it out. Too bad Buried will probably steal the title next week and Let Me In will steal it from Buried a couple of weeks after that.
