Carrie 2013 Movie Review

Based on the best selling novel by Stephen King and a remake of the old classic movie Carrie 2013 brings the movie to the screen with the help of modern special effects.

So what was the movie like, well I have seen alot of movies lately that where a real let down and although Carrie 2013 is not a 10 out of 10 movie its certainly very enjoyable to watch and makes great use of modern special effects.

Coming from Stephen Kings mind its always due to be a great story but with a good casting of Chloe Grace Moretz as Carrie it brings a real feel for the character, im a big fan of Chloe Grace Moretz she is a great young actor who already has brought us many brilliant movies such as Kick-Ass 1 and Kick-Ass 2 as Hit Girl and also Let Me In another brilliant remake movie.

Im happy to say im not usually a fan of remakes, sometimes I think movies should just be left alone but with all the advances in technology the special effects used to show off Carrie’s powers it really adds some wow to the film and helps you think good on the girl.

Julianne Moore does a great job of the playing the mother Margaret White and adds some real deph to the story.

With all the movies out lately I would certainly say this is well worth a watch and I my final rating of the film would probably be 7 out of 10.

I think the ending could have been a little better but I really did love the whole Prom scene was really well done and I would watch this film again and buy the dvd.

Im sure with most films many book fans will say it does not live up to the Stephen King book but the big screen cant always match our own imagination.

Enjoy and Catch you for another movie review soon.

The Hairy Bikers Dieters: How to Love Food and Lose Weight Review

Well Christmas has now been and passed and for one of my presents I was given the Hairy Bikers Dieters Book, calling me fat for christmas nice right. Well anyway I have not bought a new cookbook in a long time now but I do love cooking and like to have a wide range of meals each week to keep things interesting.

At first look at the Dieters cook book it seemed hard to see how these meals could help you lose weight but we started to try 1 or 2 meals out the book each week when planning our weekly meals, I think the books main positive point is that the recipes and cooking instructions are really easy to follow and ensure the meal turns out as the Hairy Bikers planned it to.

It has a great selection of meals in there and not one so far has turned out badly, the sweet and sour chicken meal is lovely and very tasty. There are many great curry meals, meat dishes to choose from and something for every taste I believe.

More than just for losing weight if you want to taste some great new meals and expand on your cooking potential then give this book a try its cheap enough for anyone to add to their kitchen.

Take a look and see what you think it will certainly get alot more use in my house.

Buy now from Amazon books
