A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)
Honest review from a Huge fan of the Horror sub Genre.
the late 70's and all through the 80's were times when horror movie icons were born. as time went on through the 2000's remakes have become a big deal which meant that Hollywood was running out of ideas for an original horror movie. Michael bay and his platinum dunes have been known as of late to make reboots to all of our favorite horror films. Texas chainsaw massacre being one of their better products.
when the movie was first announced i was excited. because i have never liked the nightmare on elm street movies as a kid, and i was banking on this to change my mind about Fred Kreuger. so as time continued, i sat down and watched every NOES movie from the first one up to Freddy VS Jason. i guess when i got older i fell in love with the series and really had high hopes for the reboot. it was time to go see the movie.
now my thoughts on this film and I'm going to be completely honest. i wasn't impressed as i was hoping to be. i felt that the movie was lacking a lot of the feelings that the original would give out. the Characters to me felt as if they were put in the movie just to die. the main character isn't as outgoing as the original. there were a lot of areas that i loved and a lot where i was wondering why they even bothered.
now Freddy Kreuger i will admit was on par with Robert Englund, and i am glad to know that they casted the right guy. he feels much darker than englunds Freddy, which is what Freddy was supposed to be to begin with.
the Overall movie experience is a good one, but not a great one. you feel happy when you see Freddy, but not when hes off screen, if that makes any sense. i will buy the movie when it comes out, just because i love Horror films. i give this movie an 8 out of 10. good but not great.
Best movie of 2010 and possibly of all time
When it comes down to super hero movies, i am not big on them like the average fan boy. so when i walked into the theater, i was expecting to walk out disappointed. boy was i wrong, not only did this movie satisfy my theater experience, but it also put this movie on my all time favorites 1st. its really sad that this movie isn't doing well in theaters, and i can understand why. (for those who seen it). this movie isn't Hollywood at all and for that reason is why I'm such a huge fan of it. the director of the movie gathered all the funds himself because it was turned down by 7 studios, who thought it was a little much. honestly WHO CARES.. its a movie, and its not like these people will actually go out and do it. the movie overall, is exactly as put.. its "kill bill meets superbad".
I recommended that people go and support this movie, for it is art and these people put their hearts and souls into it. you will not be disappointing.
