Carrie remake Chloe Grace Moretz it was good too. Interview With Chloe about Carrie please read.
MORETZ: The book was pretty much our only source of material. The book.

HOLLYWOODCHICAGO.COM: You didn’t look at the other movies?

MORETZ: Nope. We didn’t even want to even subconsciously copy anything.

HOLLYWOODCHICAGO.COM: Were you a horror fan before this?

MORETZ: Yeah. I think that horror is a fun, interesting genre. This film is more of a psychological horror, which I prefer because it’s got a lot of emotion and heart. Along with surprise and terror, it has a real storyline, which I think speaks to more.

HOLLYWOODCHICAGO.COM: What’s that storyline that attracted you? What about Carrie as a character spoke to you?

MORETZ: I think really that it was the way that she was naive, ostracized, vulnerable, and manipulated, but, at the same time, no matter what, she was like a puppy. No matter how many times you push them away, there’s a wonder, an enthrallment with the outside world that she gets from looking into other people’s lives. That was exciting for me to play because it was nuanced. It’s a character that no matter how many times they are hurt, they always find the silver lining in the darkness.

HOLLYWOODCHICAGO.COM: How did you tap into that high school culture of today that you may not have a lot of experience with given your life as an actress?

MORETZ: I think it worked because Carrie doesn’t have any high school experience. My lack of high school experience actually helped me play this part. I don’t go to high school. I don’t go around many kids my age. I am shy and nervous around a lot of people who are my age. It worked definitely in my favor.

HOLLYWOODCHICAGO.COM: When you get a project like this one, do you consider the script first or does who you’re working with really matter? Did you want to work with Kimberly and Julianne?

MORETZ: The script is key. It could be Meryl Streep…I’ve gone to projects and been like, “Oh my God, da-da-da is in it and da-da-da is in it! And that director!” And then I read the script and my character isn’t where it needed to be. Even if it’s an amazing script, you want to be challenged and excited by a project and not just be “The Kid,” “The Sister,” “The Love Interest of the Male Lead.” I want to play nuanced characters that are different from me that no one has seen me do before. I could go every day and work in very great big projects but in small roles that aren’t going to push me as an actor or do anything for me in that way. I want to be challenged and not just walking through…bored.

HOLLYWOODCHICAGO.COM: Is there anyone you look at career-wise and go that’s the path I want to take?

MORETZ: There are hundreds of people. Julianne Moore, Juliette Binoche, Natalie Portman. There’s so many people I could talk about that I’m really interesting in and I think are brilliant with their career choices. Amy Adams! She has one of the best careers of any actress out there. She has chosen solid projects from comedy to drama to horror to thriller. She’s chosen really quality projects. No one recognizes that enough. I really look up to her.

HOLLYWOODCHICAGO.COM: She jumps genres, like you do. Is that important to you? To show you can do comedy, drama, horror, etc.?

MORETZ: Yeah, totally. You should try…I think a real actor will stretch their boundaries and try and different forms of acting. You have to use different elements of acting within each project. Even if it’s a comedy, you can’t be laughy-laughy all the time. “Bridesmaids” was hilarious but it had sweet moments too like Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy on the couch. You have to have range.

HOLLYWOODCHICAGO.COM: 50 credits at age 16. A) Do you ever consider taking a break and B) Is it important to you to be constantly working? I think a lot of actors your age fall into the celebrity side of the profession and forget the work.

MORETZ: That’s what I find annoying. Now, it’s all about fashion. The new celebrity side of the job is clearing your schedule to go to every fashion week event, the Met Ball,…

HOLLYWOODCHICAGO.COM: Instead of working.

MORETZ: Exactly. I’m going, “That’s cute and all but I would rather be prepping for a project if I’m not working or on a project.” That’s my JOB. That’s what I love to do. Going to a catwalk is cute and all but it’s not what I love to do. I’m not a model nor am I a fashion blogger nor am I an editor.

HOLLYWOODCHICAGO.COM: You mentioned Julianne Moore as someone you idolize or appreciate. Do you still get that awe feeling when you work with people like that?

MORETZ: I get it from random people, to be honest. The more that I am in LOVE with an actor, I hope they’re nice so it doesn’t ruin my idea of them. But I get shocked by meeting artists and stuff.
Carrie

HOLLYWOODCHICAGO.COM: Like who?

MORETZ: Christina Aguilera walked in front of me and I was like, “Oooh. Hey. What’s up?” People that I’ve grown up with. If I met Hillary Duff, I would 100% geek out. If I met Mary-Kate and Ashley? Totally freak-out. It’s random people. I grew up with their movies. That’s my “Oh my Gosh.”

HOLLYWOODCHICAGO.COM: What did we learn from Julianne Moore as an actress?

MORETZ: It’s her intensity that she always brings and her range of emotion. Just look at “Savage Grace.” That’s one of the most amazing roles I’ve seen on-screen. She goes from being this horrible mother to making you feel bad for her. She can do no wrong in my eyes. In “Crazy Stupid Love,” you first think she’s just playing “The Mom.” No! She’s brilliant. She’s so good. I love her. In short, I LOVE Julianne Moore.

HOLLYWOODCHICAGO.COM: An actor once told me that he saw every movie as a learning experience. What was the learning experience on this one?

MORETZ: I learned so much. I really changed as a person. I went from being this young actress who hadn’t really done a role that I had been stretched in yet but this film really turned me into an adult actor. I went places I didn’t even think I could go. I tried things that I had never done before. For me, it sounds cliched, but the entire process was SO life-changing for me. I learned more than I have in my entire career on this one project.

Went to see ride along and dallas buyers club.ride along was funny in parts but unfortunately most of the funny bits where shown in the trailer.dallas buyers club turned out to be a very good movie after a slow start for me.very hard hitting as the subject matter suggests.never been a fan of Matthew McConaughey but must take my hat of as he puts in a fine performance as Ron Woodroof and Jennifer Garner is fantastic as always.now i know Jared Leto better as the lead singer of the band 30 Seconds to Mars and have never seen him in a movie before,he was amazing as Rayon ! must give him 10 out of 10.

the trailer for that film is simply amazing but the reviews are scathing, it really put me off going to see it, one said, 'the only thing that could have been worse than watching Winters Tale was having a badger eat him alive while watching Winters Tale', your disagreement with the reviewers gives me a little hope again.

Went along to see 300 Rise of an Empire, despite the reviews and my own doubts I found myself thoroughly enjoying the movie for what it was, def' a guy film, and pure entertainment, like the first not something that requires much brain power to enjoy, no Gerard Butler [well not much] but more action, bigger battle scenes and much more blood flowing. For some reason I had expected it to be a prequel, considering its title but the 'events' take place at the same time as the first film and Eva Green really steals the show here which surprised me as Ive never been convinced by her in anything else so kudos to her. In summation, if you enjoyed the original you will enjoy this, if you are looking for a historical lesson or take offence at gratuitous nudity and violence, best give it a miss.

Watched "Erased" starring Aaron Eckhart last night. Enjoyable little flick, quite entertaining. Although the chemistry between Eckhart and his film daughter (played by Liana Liberato, which kinda annoyed me a little) seemed to be very hostile.

It was when we were going home,"Oh,can you drive back I've got a sore hip from sitting for 2 and a 1/2 hours"

"Fanny,can ye no go out for 5 mins without having a drink ?"

Not a word for the last hour.She had a point though but its Saturday night and I'd have gotten away with it too if it wasn't for those pesky hips!

Good film,it's a superhero movie of course but it has political overtones and the action is top notch.

Re: last movie you watched

Mon Mar 31, 2014 5:58 pm

I can't remember if I've spoken about seeing Ender's Game or Escape Plan, but I liked both, although I didn't love them. I thought there was some great moments and genuine creativity in Ender's Game, but Escape Plan just didn't go anywhere or do anything truly thrilling, in my opinion. Especially with such a high concept at the climax. I was disappointed by Don Jon, also. A film seeking to be so daring and pushing the boundaries of the romantic comedy was just too tame and conventional. But kudos to Joseph Gordon-Levitt for directing the film and bringing good performances to the story -- especially with regards to Julianne Moore's character.

I've seen lots of new films since I last posted here. The Grand Budapest Hotel, Blue Ruin, Under the Skin, Stranger by the Lake, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, 300: Rise of an Empire, Starred Up, Labour Day and quite a few more that aren't springing to mind. Plus lots of classics at the Glasgow Film Festival, e.g. Rebel Without a Cause, Stagecoach, The Wizard of Oz, Ninotchka, Goodbye Mister Chips, Of Mice and Men and a few others. I thought Under the Skin was quite brilliant, with much being said about the use of secret filming in Glasgow, which isn't something that's new, but it worked well here. Importantly, I think this movie created a terrifically eerie and ominous mood; the story being of an alien who comes to earth for unclear, but sinister purposes. Scarlett Johansson stars and is really splendid in the lead role. The direction is taught but what stands out is a truly piercing score that blurs the line between instrumentation and the use of sound effects. I also liked Starred Up, although cliche was ultimately abound in this prison drama. But the acting is excellent, especially from Jack O'Connell, who gives a star making performance in the lead role. Anyone who likes Wes Anderson is bound to love The Grand Budapest Hotel. This may be his most engaging and deftly enjoyable film to date. The central conceit reminded me of It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, but the roll call of Anderson regulars are a joy, as is Ralph Fiennes in a rare comic role. The use of models, miniatures and alternating aspect ratios only add to the quirk and creativity on display here. I also liked Captain America: The Winter Soldier, however, there's a streak of invention amiss here, despite offering something new and quite subversive for Marvel. The performances were good throughout, especially from Chris Evans, who is very comfortable as Captain America. But Joss Whedon handled the bigger action scenes more capably in The Avengers; whilst the climax seemed just too familiar in relation to The Avengers and the showdown at the end of Iron Man 3. My main problem, though, was with a narrative that followed the self-same arc to that of Mission Impossible, I, Robot, Minority Report, Enemy of the State and more than a few other rogue agent movies.

Legend of a Fighter is one of my favourite martial arts movies. It has almost everything one could ask for in this type of film -- Yuen Wo Ping at his best as a director, Ng See Yuen fashioning a credible story that may take liberties on the life of Huo Yuen Chia, but does so with broad heroic intentions. And a stellar leading man in Leung Kar Yan. In this film, the relationships between characters are as clearly defined as the action, which is terrific throughout. The story is similar to that of Fist of Fury despite existing somewhat as a prequel, but it's comparable with regards to the quality of film making on display. Fist of Legend makes for an equally impressive third take on the legend of Huo Yuen Chia, and like Howard Hawks done with Rio Bravo, El Dorado and Rio Lobo, alternate takes on the same story and similar themes can prove very much worthwhile.

I've always liked Iron Monkey, although it's not quite top drawer with regards to the story or direction, the cast is strong and the best of the action is very good. Chen Kuan Ti is near the peak of his career here and it really shows at the film's terrific climax, which makes some of the less involving aspects of the film worth staying with.

I'm hoping to see Captain America tomorrow or Wednesday - I caught the first film on Netflix a week or two back and surprised myself by liking it, although Evans is difficult to dislike no matter what the film. Quick question, though, does Winter Soldier make sense without having seen Avengers Assemble first?

Yeah, you don't need to have seen Avengers to follow The Winter Soldier. Remember to stay for the mid-credits and post-credits scenes.

I actually never really watched or cared for the first "Captain America" that's why I'm not interested watching the sequel. To be honest, I have a slight problem with all these Marvel superhero movies. Kinda liked the first "Iron Man" and "Blade II" but that was it.

Last night I watched "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" but was equally disappointed like with the first one. But I think the sequel had more "edge" but in the end was pretty lame... 80 minutes until something really happens. Waste of time.

I had to quit "Captain Phillips" as I got seasick watching that darn shaking camera all time time. The whole movie just went on my nerves. From the director of "The Bourne Supremacy". Oh yeah, well... :? :roll:

I watched Selena last night, which is one of my favourite biopics and one of the best biopics of the past 25 years, in my opinion. It's quite hard to believe that Selena will be twenty years dead next year, but this film remains a fine tribute, proving vibrantly entertaining but poignant and achingly sad. This movie gave Jennifer Lopez a star-making role as Selena, and she really excels here in what is still one of her best performances.
