I hate remakes. Last week I watched “Children of the Corn“, which is the TV remake of the classic “Children of the Corn” (1984), a story based on Stephen King’s short story. I love the original. I thought John Franklin was chillingly disturbing as Isaac and Courtney Gains was awesome as Malachai. The story is also not bad.. I mean it’s watchable. I like it despite all the bad reviews from others.
HOWEVER.. the TV remake? I don’t even have a word to describe it. I haven’t read the short story and they said it’s very faithful to the short story now.. the original one was modified a bit, like for example they added the diner scene where the kids kill the adults.. which I might add a brilliant scene as it’s chilling.. but the remake? It’s not there cuz it’s not from the short story.. all you see is a couple bickering for like a good ol’ 60% of the movie.. omg I felt like I want to grab the bitch and kill her myself.. then the guy. I CAN’T STAND THEM! Their acting failed miserably. The story is long and draggy.. it was pure boredom. Everything is a mess. I despise it. I want to burn it. I want to shoot myself.
However, the only thing I like is some of the effect.. which is nice, something I wanna learn how to do. That’s the only thing I like.. oh and the ending, where the bitch and the bastard dies.. it was like HALLELUJAH.. if they survive I would’ve ended up killing myself. Not really but close.
Anyways.. I’m beginning to really love Italian cone pizza. Feels like eating an ice cream but instead it’s a pizza. Really yummy too. I know I said I’m on a diet, but eh. Since I’ve been sick this past 3 days I’ve been binging.
