Poltergeist – movie review

poltergeistGrade: D+

They let me down. I had high hopes for Poltergeist. I figured this one would step away from the original enough to not cause us to compare them. I was wrong. Some of the same lines were used and they didn’t come out strong enough.

The acting fell flat. I almost got the feeling that Sam Rockwell didn’t want to be in the movie. He seemed like he was really forcing his lines out, which really sucks because I love him.

I don’t know, but maybe I’m being too critical because I was raised fearing the original Poltergeist. This one hasn’t got anything on the original.

I watched this in 3D and wasn’t impressed with the effects at all. I absolutely think it wasn’t worth the extra ticket price.

Christene Johnson (RunPee Sis)

RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.

Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
