I have just watched new Carrie movie and i don't know why people complain about this movie.
I have read the book several times and watched the old Carrie movie again several times. I don't accept any complains about the story. Story was good in 1976 and it is still good in 2013. I like the Chole's and Julianne Moore's performance. Especially Julianna Moore is fantastic in this movie.
Remakes are hard to like because people always compare it with the old movie. If they like the old movie, they will complain about the new one. This is why this movie has low rating. But they don't understand one point, if you don't remake Carrie, new generation will not know about it at all. How many young person would watch 1976 Carrie? Carrie was one of the best choice to make a remake. It is not like remaking "Oldboy" movie (which they did unfortunately).
To sum up, i liked Carrie (2013) and it was a good remake. I really enjoyed it because i am fan of the book and the old movie. If you don't know anything about Carrie you will like the movie. If you like the book and the 1976 Carrie movie, again you will like this too. The only way to not like this movie is to have obsession about the old movie (or you are not fan of this kind of movies at all)
