okay yeah. so i liked this.
now here's what's going to piss all of you off: i liked it more than the original. i don't care if the original was some commentary on the vietnam war or whatever the hell craven claimed it was. the vietnam war is over and i'm pretty sure nobody appreciated the symbolic commentary depicted through psychotic hippies.
i think that THIS film was made for OUR generation. i mean, there are obviously REALLY IMPORTANT STATEMENTS LIKE:
"I hate cell phones! Everyhwere you turn - nothing but texting and reading and texting."
This is said while violently barrel rolling, flailing, and dragging this girl around. I know we all feel that way when we almost get sideswiped by some jackass texting while going down 75. we feel you man. we totally do.
i won't reiterate that a certain scene didn't need to be dragged out as long as it did, because when people talk about this movie, that's really all that they talk about. awesome. scene over. NEXT. following the criminal's bloody rampage is an even bloodier rampage that makes the movie extremely epic. yes, it's violent, maybe it's unnecessary but you kind of don't care because the gang was sort of full of creepers.
as for the creepers, their personalities are so over the top and ridiculously evil that it's actually pretty unbelievable. this is a good thing. additionally, i specifically remember the creepers in the original being gross looking hippies. in this one? they're all pretty good looking, which kind of deters from the whole disgusting hillbilly freaks deal. once again, this makes for epic hilarity and thus, was also a good thing. i think the hills have eyes remake pleased me more in the barfo-looking-inbred types.
i guess it is actually kind of intense and you feel bad for a lot of the characters too. but that's not what my review is about and you can pretty much read that on every forum involving this movie ever.
