Let Me In (Review)

Remake of Swedish vampire film is surprisingly effective

0 Comments · Thursday, September 30, 2010
Matt Reeves' remake of Swedish filmmaker Tomas Alfredson's atmospheric vampire thriller — both of which are based on John Ajvide Lindqvist's horror novel 'Let the Right One In' — might not be as restrained or as poetic as its predecessor. Like the earlier film, though, 'Let Me In' generates unexpected empathy for its central duo, a pair of 12-year-olds who form an unexpected bond. Grade: B.  

Eat Pray Love (Review)

Julia Roberts-led book adaptation is a missed opportunity

0 Comments · Tuesday, August 17, 2010
'Eat Pray Love,' the title, promises progressive movement, but the film reminded me of an epic car trip that stalled as we begin to see the film as a series of missed opportunities: a great cast that is largely wasted, exotic locales that never achieve travelogue status and a journey that ends with no sense of enlightenment. Grade: C-.
