I just want to listen to music through the headphones of the globe, I'll mix their screams with the cries of laughter. I'll cross over from obese greed and drown it in tragedy. I'll take one shot to a building and ignore the millions of bombs we drop to compensate for our more expensive lives. I'll bask in the glory of being able to eat the African families weight, malnourished and all. I'll parade around in clothes I don't need, expelling exhaust. "everything i could say would feed into insignificance"

I am so sick of Hollywood or whoever it is, taking PERFECTLY good films and 're-adapting' them or remaking them..For instance, 'Let the Right One In,' was a Swedish film that came out in 2008. It contained an amazingly fresh take on Vampires through the story of a bullied 12-year old boy and a vampire female whom he befriends and falls in love with. Straying from many 'Vampire' norms, making the film feel feel incredibly real....

now in 2010, barely 2 years later... 'Let Me In' is being released in the United States and already in the trailer alone it looks like the same movie scene for scene. [see below]

This should be considered thievery. Movies like this shouldn't even thrive, they shouldn't even make it into a pre-production stage. Yet there are probably many Americans who NEVER saw 'Let the Right One In' and they will go see 'Let Me In' and be completely stunned, satisfied and preach on and on about what a great film it was taking away from and detracting any chance of survival for the Swedish film. America 10, Indie/Foreign 0.
