So, i had some time the other night to watch some movies for once. I went on Rottentomatoes.com to see if I should watch Let me In or My soul to take and i was extremely surprised to see that Let me In had such a high rating for a movie in this genre. Usually on rottentomato the only horror movies with high ratings are the classics. (My soul to take only got a 8 percent while Let me in got a 89 percent..) Now, while rottentomato isn't always right, they do have pretty good judgement for the most part. To make a long story short, I watched Let Me In and was very pleasantly surprised with how it came out. It had my attention the whole time and both of the children in it played their parts very well.

Was anyone else pleasantly surprised with this movie? The concept of it just from reading the description seems to boring and overdone, but when I watched it I couldn't believe how great it was! The description doesn't do it justice.

No surprise. While I dont usually listen to reviewers except for a few, uniformly, all reviewers liked this movie and disected it pretty well. I enjoyed it also. It was very similar and faithful to the original but with better acting.

By SUBTITLES, I think Dita has misunderstood. LET THE RIGHT ONE IN is the original with subtitles. LET ME IN is HAMMER STUDIOS remake of the original in English.

DAMN, the lovely Dita is FAST, lol. Never mind.

I finally managed to see 'Let Me In' last night. It was alright. I liked the story. I really related to the boy Owen. I used to get beat up all the time and picked on by the school bullies so I definitely saw myself in his plight. That hit really close to home. When you have a life like that and you meet someone like Abby, it's trying to get close and make a friend in a world that treats you cruelly, and you will do anything to keep that friend, because it's your link to sanity. And then when you find out that friend is a vampire..how cool is that when you're a kid? I liked the result of her bleeding when Owen didn't invite her in-that angle on a vampire has never been done before. However, the car crash sequence was lame and watching how they did it, it seems they went to too much trouble for a scene they could've done simpler and it still would've looked good. The CGI scenes were terribly done and really ruined the flow of the story. And also it took to long to get bloody revenge on the bullies, I wanted to see them die..in the most cruel, bloody way possible-but we only got glimpses. I wanted to see them being torn apart-they deserved it. I knew that *SPOILER ALERT* Owen would let the cop die, because he threatened the sanctity of their relationship.
