Oh man this is funny. I don’t know if it’s worse than the one I made but it’s definitely close.

Matt Reeves’ vampire coming-of-age film Let Me In hits theaters October 1st – which means it’ll come out just a little shy of two years after the original Swedish version (Let the Right One In). There’s been somewhat of a backlash from fans of the original since the remake was announced, and accusations of the new film being dumbed-down for a U.S. audience are flying left and right. Reeves has defended his work, saying that the original itself was a remake of a novel, and that his film is just a “variation on a theme.” The marketing for the new film has done a pretty good job of distinguishing it from the Swedish film, but at the end of the day, it’s the same story. It’s not uncommon for major studios to “Americanize” foreign films by remaking them with well-known actors and without subtitles. Sometimes a larger budget can bring a little more flash to source material that couldn’t quite pull it off. Other times… Well, it’s usually best to try and forget about those.

When reviewing a film it’s easy to get caught up in broad generalizations, to be caught up in your deep love or utter disdain for it. The art of film reviewing is a happy marriage between being subjective and objective.

Rather, we respond from our gut or our heart: shooting from the hip and asking questions later. However, the responsible reviewer will offer a fair opinion: an opinion based on examples from the film, specific analysis of scenes or actors or cinematography or directing or any of the many facets of the film. The responsible reviewer is trying to edify the film, to offer insight or constructive criticism, to be “fair and balanced.” I say all this because, in my review of Ultraviolet, I find being responsible nearly impossible.

"They want you to be their avatar... We all do." 

I knew nothing about this film before seeing it. It was a Tuesday, I was bored, and honestly, it was the best thing playing at the cheap theater that I hadn’t already seen. It was this or Marmaduke – can you blame me? As I said, all I knew about The Last Airbender aside from the fact that it was universally loathed by critics was that it was based on a cartoon and that it was “from the mind of” triple-threat writer/director/producer M. Night Shyamalan. Oh, and there was some martial arts and magic. Honestly, how bad could it be? (more…)
