    GAHHHH!!! I don’t like this girl.

    • neelyo says:

      Me neither. I haven’t seen her outside of the red carpet but the poses drive me nuts. She seems way too young to already be at Lea Michele level posing.

    • dooliloo says:


      To me she comes off as under her “innocent look” an insufferable younger sister I’d kick the crap outta her.. mean I know!

      I wish journalists would stop asking President Obama dumb sh-t questions :-(

      Bill Murray can crash my party anytime it’d be a hellraiser lot of fun :-D

      Swifty… HANDS OFF my Ginger mate!!!!! Well Ed is the mate of a mate who’s the friend of a mate…

      • Eve says:

        @ Neelyo and Dooliloo:

        I find her sexy-pouty lips, hard-posing on the red carpet annoying — and inappropriate for her age.

        But I also dislike her as an actress. I don’t think she’s a bad one, but I really can’t see what the fuss is about either.

      • Amelia says:

        +1 on everything Dooliloo, especially about keeping Swifty away from Ed Sheeran. He’s too talented to be associating with whiny, serial daters like shifty.
        And I think the blind is Zooey Deschanel.
        The only good thing about this Carrie remake is that it may inspire a few teens to see the original.

      • dooliloo says:

        @ Eve, well all that indeed, from the red carpet to the acting, I mean I think she was fine in Kickass (but I must admit Aaron Jonhson pretty eyes got me gasping all the way through!) and they want to make of her the new Dakota Fanning or whatever…

        @ Amelia Swifty better stay off my UK gingerheads or I’ll smack her head and make those rocks in there rattle around in the proper order so she gets the idea.
        Ahhh I don’t know why but the “quirky” made me think Zooey before I even clicked on the link. Well…if that’s her, what a pity! Then again she was way too cool to be true the bitchy side was about to show up some day eh..

    • bns says:

      This remake is making me not like her.

    • Canda says:

      I cannot stand her. It must have something to do with her facial expressions when there’s a camera nearby, and the way she jacks up her face, thrusts out a leg or a hip or a shoulder and poses SO HARD at such a young age. On an older woman, it’s an eyeroll, but on a child it’s disconcerting. Who is teaching her to be such an attention whore?

    • Tiffany says:

      She seems very talented and down to earth in her interviews. I don’t understand why people want to hate on a girl for no reason. To simply say it is because of her red carpet poses is weak! She is having fun getting dressed up, what 14 year old girl wouldn’t?

      • A says:

        She’s a very talented young girl…emphasize on young. I really find her parents/manager/PR person annoying for letting her wear incredibly age inappropriate outfits…Lainey has a fit over this.

    • enya. says:

      Oh, man, not me! I LOVE Chloe Moretz. I’ll watch anything she’s in. She reminds me of my little sister. :)


  2. Saphana says:

    LOL at the Kristen/Robert Pictures

    she is showing him her armpits. “come sparky, sparky, hmm tasty armpits”

  3. marie says:

    Why remake this movie, gahh come up with some new ideas already! Sissy Spacek was the perfect creepy.

    And WTF, asking the President what he thinks about 2 grown ass women fighting, who gives a sh-t.Stop wasting his time on juvenile crap.

    Also, I love the fact that Bill Murray crashes a lot random events-it’s pretty cool..

  4. V4Real says:

    Who the hell is she and Hollywood needs to stop recycling movies.

  5. Mia 4S says:

    I finally saw the original Carrie a few years ago and I remember thinking it was very well done but not very scary….until that last scene. THAT VERY LAST SCENE. Scared me to death in a perfect movie moment. I won’t run it by seeing a remake.

  6. Rachel says:

    They had a really low-budget Carrie remake a while back that was just plain bad. They changed the ending so that Carrie didn’t die… completely ruined any hope of that film being decent. I don’t think the original needed a remake in the first place, but hopefully this one will be better than that other abomination.

    • Camille (TheOriginal) says:

      Are you thinking of that godawful Carrie 2 (it was a ‘sequel’) nonsense perchance?

  7. amanda says:

    Lol. That trailer. I’m not sure the fit of giggles it gave me was the intended reaction.

  8. Riana says:

    Supposedly this version will be more true to the book than the Sissy Spacek version was, in which case I support it.

    • Trek Girl says:

      Yup, the end of this movie is just one of the ways it is more faithful to the book. I won’t say what the end is as I’m sure there are people who don’t know and I don’t want to ruin it for them.

      I have no problem with a lot of remakes, especially when they are being more faithful to a book or including parts of the book that were not in other movies. There are many ways that a story can be told in a movie, and because of that I don’t thinks there is any problem with doing a concept over again.

      While remakes are happening a lot now, they certainly are not new, and when you consider how many times Shakespeare’s work has been done over and over again, as well as other great books, it’s rather ridiculous to think that a book as great as “Carrie”, that has so many interesting aspects to it, won’t be made again.

      • Tiffany says:

        I agree Trek Girl. A huge portion of movies/plays are based on ancient stories and myths. I think there are a billion ways to tell a story, so I don’t mind new people taking a shot at it. In fact, I think it is possible to love two different tellings of the same story for different reasons. It seems like people have been trained to pick sides in entertainment recently (especially with female musicians or actresses). Why limit yourself when you can enjoy them all?

        The recent trend of re-dos is in large part to studios owning rights and not having to invest in that area, but that doesn’t mean nothing good can come of it…so long as it is done well. Julianne Moore is amazing, so I look forward to seeing her performance and seeing the “real” ending.

      • Trek Girl says:

        @Tiffany: yes, I think Julianne Moore was a great choice for this movie, as was Chloe Moretz.

        I find the criticism leveled at Moretz on this site and some others absolutely ridiculous, by the way. Have you noticed how many people don’t like her for absurd reasons? Ugh.

        Anyway, I look forward to the movie and I’m glad there are other people here who understand that remakes of movies are not the end of the world, and making several movie versions of books and plays is basically tradition in Hollywood and elsewhere.

  9. Sweet Dee says:

    Oh gawd I’m so glad Dane Cook’s show never came to fruition. He’s like the annoying jock in high school who repeats used-up one-liners and acts like he bangs a lot of chicks while running his damn arrogant mouth all the time. Really though, if you ignore that guy he goes away.

    Bill Murray: Best Celebrity. Period.

    • victoria says:

      OMG ITA i can’t stand him and never did. I have no idea how he made his fortune, he’s not funny!!! Those colleges should have their heads examined that let him do shows. Also I find him completely hideous and want to know how he banged the hottest women with no sense of humor? I mean money can only go so far…

  10. Havik says:

    Oy. I know my complaints are infantile (as anybody can be bullied) but I simply don’t buy Chloe Moretz as the bullied outsider. *shrugs* Not a real problem, as I won’t be seeing the film anyways

  11. Zombie Shortcake says:

    She doesn’t look anywhere near as convincingly hopeless and far gone as Sissy Spacek did.

  12. lulu says:

    this carrie will suck. the original is a classic.

    • iheartjacksparrow says:

      Truer words were never spoken. The original Carrie had Sissy, P.J. Soles, Nancy Allen, Amy Irving, and the totally hot (at the time) William Katt. The cast was perfect. I can’t understand why Hollywood keeps insisting on remaking classic movies. Just like all the other unnecessary remakes, this one will probably crash and burn (like John Travolta’s car in the original).

  13. lulu says:

    doesn’t obama have more important things to think about than the carey/minjai faux feud?

  14. TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

    The original was perfect esp. the bloodfest ending – tell me, Hollywood believes they are more of everything than us peasants then show some damn CREATIVITY – i have no idea who this girl is Hayden Panietterie (sic) younger sis?

  15. Christian says:

    A quirky TV actress who hates “regular people” – that has GOT to be Zooey Deschanel.

  16. Happy21 says:

    I love Chloe whasis. She played creepy well in “Let Me In”.

    I cannot stand that no one in Hollywood has an original idea anymore and everything is being re-made and re-done. Like they think they can make it better now than back then or something. Or the fact that they keep making old classic TV shows into movies that are a mockery of what we used to love.

    They made 21 Jumpstreet a freaking comedy for crying out loud! That show was fantastic and well meaning and then they mocked it by making it a comedy. Same with the Dukes of Hazzard. The original TV show was cheesy and predictable but they kicked it in the gut by trying to make it legitimately funny.

    Agg! I could go on and on and on!

  17. mia girl says:

    Bill Murray is SUPREME.
    No one even comes close.

  18. skuddles says:

    I love Bill Murray… sigh.

  19. emmy says:

    Jeez! There should be a warning on the Kardashian link. That is upsetting!

  20. lucy2 says:

    Bill Murray has become this sort of crazy mythological figure who just occasionally shows up in the weirdest places. I love it.

    Agree about Zooey for the blind, but to be fair, no one heard that directly from the celeb’s mouth, but from a crew member.

    • Christian says:

      I’ve read other accounts about her being rude to fans and mocking them, probably for being oh so “normal”. Still love New Girl though.

    • AlbaDeTamble says:

      Bill Murray lives in Charleston and I have seen him several times all over. Most random time was early Sunday morning at the Lowes here in Mount Pleasant. Hubs and were just getting some paint when BAM there is B Murphy looking like all sorts of hell in a Riverdogs (local minor league baseball team he co owns) jersey. He was still super friendly then…just like the others times I have run into him!

      • skuddles says:

        Oh I’m so envious that you get to see Bill Murray in your own neighborhood!! I’d seriously have to resist the urge to run over and hug him :D

      • Christian says:

        That’s nice. My friend met him when Rushmore was filmed here in Houston a million years ago and he was not so nice. Looks like he’s softened up. A stellar career will do that I suppose.

  21. jojo says:

    OMG Julianne is going to be yelling at Chloe about her dirty pillows! LOL

  22. Madpoe says:

    Where do I sign my name to MAKE Hollywood STOP rehashing old crap?!?

    Is it a seperate list from STOP the 3D movies madness? (I didn’t like ‘em in the ’80′s don’t like ‘em now!) Or on the Asian “reimagining” movies(they’re fine they way they were intended!)

    This has got to stop!! *heavy groan*

  23. mln89 says:

    i can’t stand this girl. her face literally irritates me.

  24. Get Real says:

    why is no one up in arms about this strapless number?

  25. Marianne says:

    Count Me Out.

    Also, I wish Chloe Moretz would stop making these kind of movies where she plays the “dark, mysterious,edgy girl”. I feel like she’s going to get typecast.

  26. HotPockets says:

    I want to add that Steven King HATED the original “The Shining” movie and when I mean hate, I mean hate. He was furious that Jack Nicholson and Shelly Duvall were the leads, not to mention that the movie wasn’t filmed at the actual hotel the book is based off of, which was the only inspiration for that book. He remade the movie himself and it was a mini series that was more true to his novel, but hardly anyone knows about it.

    Anyways, I usually criticize all these remade movies, but if this one follows the novel better, then maybe I’ll give it a try.
