Let Me In [film]

Postby PunkyChipsAhoy » Sat Oct 02, 2010 12:54 am

I went in expecting a fucked up movie. I came out EXTREMELY disturbed by how creepy and strong it was. It was rated R to the spot.

I think it beat the swedish version by a longshot.

...I find it hard to believe that the hollywood remake would "beat" the original.

I originally intended to boycott this movie, fearing that it'd be like most hollywood remakes and butcher it, but apparently this isn't the case. I'm still not sure if I want to see it though.
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

The original is a classic. If you've seen the original, I highly suggest you read this

http://io9.com/5653637/let-me-in-is-qui ... d-horrific

Where a fan of the original compares the main differences between the two. Many of the commenters have seen both films and are declaring that they are both awesome. If my opinion mattered in your decision, you should go watch it. Just not with your gf. Unless she enjoys these types of movies.

I saw the Swedish version and expected the American to be crap, but eh, you never know. I didn't like it as much as a lot of people, though, so I can't really be bothered to watch both, though.

Critics always love films that aren't geared towards mainstream america. I've said it once and I'll say it again, this is a powerful film. The transformation of the cute little girl from Kick-Ass [you know Hit Girl] into a exorcist-like, fucked up vampire was terrifying

Yeah, but you know how awesome she was in Kick Ass, she's a brilliant actor and really enjoys playing the more vulgar characters obviously

Can you blame them? I'm watching Wedding Crashers in the telly right now, and guess what, it's ANOTHER romantic comedy about a couple of guys that are kinda douchey, but find true love by the end. Some 70% of mainstream American movies suck balls and/or are cliché as all hell.

I never say I could blame them. But mainstream America loved Inception even though it was geared towards the more intelligent type. Not to say that the movie was hard to grasp, but the fact that there weren't explosions every 5 seconds.

To be fair, both movies are based on a book, and the director of 'Let Me In' stated that his intention was to be faithful to that, and not necessarily try to remake the first film.

If so, he completely changed the role of the father in his film from the book. Granted, the way he did it is even more depressing.

I'm pretty excited to see this film.

I am kind of irked by all the "mainstream American" comments by you guys, though. Not every film is a masterpiece and if you look at any country most of their stuff is generic and targeted at audiences that have seen this stuff a million times. This plot isn't even that great either; just a few twists. Vampire movie where a human falls for a vampire. Oh, but wait! They're children! Oh and it's a girl vampire and a boy human! That makes it totally unique! Just saying. I haven't seen it and I'm expecting it to be awesome, but I did want to make those points.

that's not what makes it unique. It's their depiction of a vampire/human relationship and vampires being somewhere in between Underworld and I Am Legend that makes it unique.

That would be the Swedish original swedish one we were taking about

Let the Right One In, like tuor said, is the original swedish one that follows the book more closely.

Let Me In is the american remake that takes a few more liberties with the source material that produces a darker, if less romantic, story.

were your fellow audience members also laughing to relieve some of the awkwardness of some of the scenes?

My friends were doubled over laughing. Other people in the theater snickered. And a couple of dirty looks from others.

It even has the kid from The Road.

I should see this film but I probably won't.. it's one of the smaller releases and eh. I'll see it definitely when it comes out on DVD and stuff though.
