Let Me In: I’m so hesitant to recommend this, because the idea of remaking a film that’s already so completely awesome makes me all twitchy, but here I am, trusting all my friends who’ve seen it and believing that it’s you know, actually good (and not a shot-for-shot rip-off). If I could, I’d require you to watch the original Swedish film first. Just know that Let the Right One In is not your typical vampire film – but it is creepy, bloody, and has an uncomfortably amazing script…which I hope is the case with this too.
Never Let Me Go: Another film that could be incredible boring, but could also be awesomesauce: Never Let Me Go features doe-eyed darling Carey Mulligan and doll-bodied Keira Knightly as clones who only exist in case their “originals” need something vital. It looks cool and kind of haunting (and like a total weeper), and I’ll just admit right now that NO, I have not read the book it’s adapted from (gasp!) even though everyone else has.
