Poor, unfortunate 2013 Carrie. Under other circumstances, we'd be able to look kindly on this new adaptation of the Stephen King novel. Only one, little thing stands in the way: 1976 Carrie, Brian De Palma's masterful adaptation.

I haven't seen Captain Phillips yet. Obviously, it's the best new movie of the week. Its 8 on IMDb dwarfs the three new movies I did see, which average a 5.5. All in all, a rather dreary week.

In my mind, the film is about transcending gravity; the quest to live life a few feet off the ground. The Kaballah teaches that growth and impact emerge from living outside our comfort zone.

It really had the opportunity to transcend, and despite being a cinematic masterpiece, I'm not sure it is a film I will want to watch again once it's out of IMAX.
