Movie Review: Carrie

I wish I could say that it lives up to it's legendary predecessor, but it sadly doesn't come close. I thought the casting was okay, but Chloe Moretz was definitely the standout in this film. I thought she did a phenomenal job in the lead role. Julianne Moore did a good job as the mother, but it was weird seeing her playing such a crazy character. I thought Judy Greer did a great job as the gym teacher, Tommy Ross was very charming and likeable, and I thought the chick that played Chris (Portia Doubleday) did a great job too. The rest of the cast were just so-so in my opinion. I also thought the beginning of the movie was extremely dumb and unbelievable. I wouldn't call this movie a horror movie, but MAYBE a thriller at best. I give it 3 and a half stars for a good effort (and casting Ms. Moore!).
