Halloween: Directors Cut (2007)
Having grown up with the Halloween films, this remake makes me sick. To begin with Michael is made into some angry kid with ripped jeans and a bad mouth, along with a not so nice family, which creates a contrast from the child we see in the original movie which is a lot more mysterious and leaves teh audience to wonder why, as well as creating a feeling of discomfort; with the given context from Zombies movie we lose that unsettling feeling and just begin to not care. At all. Then as the story moves on you watch it destroy all of the character you grew up with and loved. By the end of it I was waiting for it to finish and it couldn't have finished too soon for me.
This is a remake which shouldn't have been made. Halloween is a classic and this is no justice to it. By the end of the movie you care little for the characters. If you've seen the original don't bother watching this. It's a cheap copycat slander.
The only question this film leaves me with is, why?!
