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,' 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-.
