October 3: Carrie. Rating:4/5. Comment: This Stephen King cash crop was high in originality but realism was somewhat lacking, especially in the opening scenes where naked teenagers frolicked through the locker room. It has also suffered the ravages of time, as we now have much less smoking and more security guards in our schools. I will add that, since I am the only girl I know who never went to prom, I have often imagined mine going similarly, minus the bucket of blood and subsequent deaths. In reality, the cutest, most athletic boy in school NEVER asks out the weird, unpopular “nobody.” Never. For any reason. Perhaps Carrie shows us why.
Peace and love.
