OK. This past weekend, I went w/ a friend to see the Carrie retread.
I thought Julianne Moore gave a more nuanced performance as Margaret White than Piper Laurie did in '76. But Chloe Grace Moretz IMO overacted a bit, almost on the verge of Kabuki at times. Chloe looked like a superhero / super villain when she was using telekinesis, not a bullied schoolgirl. Her performance didn't hold a candle to Sissy Spacek's. The film also used more special effects which took away a little from the human story worth telling.
