Watched the preview for Carrie the other day. Looks good.
PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4
While I've always been a huge fan of found footage films, this was a shockingly lazy rehash of Paranormal Activity 3 with many of the same elements. In a way it's not really surprising because these movies are produced mere months before being released and apparently they had ZERO new ideas for this movie. It's pretty slow throughout and the scares that actually come are few and far between before the ending which is even hastily done.
That being said, I know I'll be the same sucker next year when the next one comes around.

Scarface is super overrated and a LOT of his flicks suck. Carrie is ****ing awesome, though, and what about
****ing PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE
and I think a case could also be made for:
True, when the man makes a bad movie, he makes a BAD movie, but let's not forget his good stuff.
De Palma's lameness is largely based on him ripping off Hitchcock. He directed this film called Obsession, and hired Bernard Herrmann to do the soundtrack, and rumor has it that Hitch watched and said, this is just a ripoff of Vertigo. Lol, it pretty much is.
But to De Palma's credit, in my opinion, no one is going to criticize Phantom Of The Paradise on my watch! That movie is ****ing brilliant!
