My brother, Dylan, has a lot to say about movies. Here are his thoughts as they come naturally out of his mouth. They will be short, to the point and the world will have the opportunity to get to read the hilarious and ridiculous commentary that can only come from The Dylan Scott.
Dylan wants this section of the blog to be called ‘Dylan’s Elegance’ where he elegantly gives his thoughts and opinions on films.
What’d you think of the movie, Dylan?
Poltergeist with Sam Rockwell. And other people I didn’t know the names of. Well. I was entertained…because….of the movie theater environment and the fact that it was a remake of a movie….and I was seeing all the connections from the first one — and that part of it was cool. And it’s always cool to see a horror movie in the theater. But other than that, it was just ridiculously cheesy lines. And, nothing really original. At all. And if it weren’t for Sam Rockwell making a few little comments that made you laugh, the movie would’ve seemed a lot longer I think.
They literally did nothing new. They didn’t even make it interesting. It was just like the girl goes in, they throw the rope, everything works. There’s gotta be a bigger problem.
The whole thing got real freaky real fast. It was less believable. The transition just went from everything being pretty normal and the kids kind of seeing shit, to their parents coming home to their kid being swung around by a tree and their daughter flipping shit, and they immediately decide they’re not going to call the cops and their daughter is missing. It must be paranormal activity. Next thing you know they’ve got ghost busters in their house, with all these wires and shit but its not till the end of the movie until Sam Rockwell says he’s fully committed to it. Heh?
Mom comment from the kitchen: Why would Sam Rockwell do such a stupid movie?
Dylan: Because they paid him enough.
Anyways, they had this other kid, the son, who’s scared of everything and we don’t know why really, but when the ghosts appear, suddenly he’s braver? It just didn’t make sense. When the older daughter goes to Sam Rockwell “I’m sorry I’m such a bitch to you dad” right when they’re trying to get out of the crazy house – it’s like what the…? Actually, Jordan, I could see you saying that to Dad. Maybe that part was believable.
They didn’t have the little lady with the big glasses in this one. They should’ve had her. “Caroline, don’t go into the light! My child. My child…”
Special effects? Eh. Nothing special, whatsoever. It was even in 3D. Eh, some parts were cool because of the 3D I guess. It should’ve been in IMAX. Every movie should be in IMAX.
