    The new Carrie... likes, dislikes and final thought.

    What I liked:

    -Carrie had more fun flexing her telekinetic powers!

    -Chamberlain, Maine was destroyed!

    -Carrie was making the decision to murder to get revenge.

    -The final scene where Sue was interviewed by a committee reminded me of King's inclusion of post-Prom investigations and interviews.

    -Sue's pregnancy was acknowledged.

    -Seeing Carrie's birth.

    What I did not like:

    -Chloe Grace Mortez as Carrie - she was too cute and just couldn't coompete with Sissy Spacek's performance. I love Chloe Grace Mortez, but just not in this movie. Poor casting decision.

    -Margaret White was too compassionate.

    -Chris's death scene was a little over the top.

    -If you're going to remake Carrie, take the opportunity to show us King's ending, not the one we saw in the De Palma film.

    Overall, the remake is watchable, but the Brian De Palma version was a masterpiece, and King's novel was even better.
