Re: More reflections on LMI and LTROI

I was brought up Catholic and maybe that's one of the reasons I resonated with LTROI. Religion likes to hijack love and anything good, as if God is only in some building with a cross on it. LTROI showed that love can be found even in the darkest of places. I think that's why the color palette is mor...

Wheel of Fortune

Hello everyone! It's been awhile since I've been here but had to share this little thing. I was playing Wheel of Fortune on my phone and one of the puzzles to solve was Let the Right One In! Couldnt believe it! Must be a household name 😂 I knew this story was too good to disappear and Wheel of Fortu...

Re: What does this tree convey?

Hi guys it's been awhile. Hope everyone is doing well. Glad to see good topics still being mined and discussed. I had to put my two cents in on this particular topic, especially since I found so much meaning in the visuals. I too love this shot as well as the whole medley of shots shown while that b...

Re: Salem, MA screening

I live relatively nearby. Yes, Halloween season is pretty cool there. However it is overdone and tacky. Going in the evenings is better because the traffic is far less severe. In walking about the downtown in the evening, the visibility is reduced to the lights and attractions. Feels better. Howeve...

Re: Brian Osoro's LTROI Vanderbilt Blog

Raises an interesting question.Would Eli still believe in God?If she does then she would assume that even when she dies she'll go to hell.Poor darling.She can't escape, even in death. :think: But she doesnt have to die, and because of that is already in hell and getting lower with every kill. But t...

Re: Brian Osoro's LTROI Vanderbilt Blog

I would say only Eli is a complete outsider. Oskar is portrayed purposely as a somewhat normal kid with fitting in problems that the filmakers try to get the audience to relate to or be reminded of in someway. So in that sense Oskar IS an outsider, even if only in his mind. His mother loves him and...

Re: Brian Osoro's LTROI Vanderbilt Blog

"However, this is more than just a teen romance story. Let the Right One In explores the exclusion and isolation associated with outsider status, and how this can be overcome through empathy and mutual support, a motif that transcends the limits of age and genre." I agree, but taking a different ta...

Re: Brian Osoro's LTROI Vanderbilt Blog

I dont disagree but doesnt really need to be said. Its a human predicament be it individual or group. Thats why to using a vampire story is so much more effective than a political one because everybody can relate. Its like the old Star Trek shows and how they used analogy to tell stories relevant to...

Re: Another thing I love about this movie

I love that it's in the middle of suburbia.You can see car headlights just 20-30 metres away when Hakan kills the boy and when Eli gets Jocke and the truck rumbles past.There are people everywhere and none the wiser.I'm so used to seeing vampire movies that are set in deep dark forests or isolated ...
