RU? Instant Reaction Review Podcast Ep. 77- Carrie Review

We have some strange connections to Carrie, and you may already know that, especially you pay attention to the fact that we hail from Bangor, ME, but it’s going to be hard to call foul on us this week, because we just couldn’t stand this movie.

There are a lot of reasons really, but at the end of the day we were just bored. The actors did their job, but the screenplay was a miss that should go down in legend.

As far as we were concerned, if you tried to make the worst decision you could at every juncture, this is the movie you’d come up with.

The tension is pulled out of the film in a way that you don’t generally see even among bad movies.

We do have some variety in what we dislike most though, and that may come from the background view that Shane doesn’t think there was any point, whereas I thought a movie could at least theoretically do a good job of updating this film.

We also give some rundown on things from the world of TV, so there’s more… because how long could we discuss this?

Carrie Review

Still, Julianne Moore was fun, and I still like Chloë Grace Moretz more than a lot of actresses, but they can’t make anything work, because of changes to their characters – which we discuss.

Let us know what you thought of this one, and tune in for our next show, Bad Grandpa.

The Astronaut Wives Club has too much going on to rocket out of the gates, but it has the potential to easily rate a 9 or 10 after six episodes. The complexities are legion, and there are more characters than you know what to do with. If it settles down into the spin on pseudo-drama it suggests, it could be a winner.
