they’re remaking “american psycho”, and i’m suuuuper excited about it!
i saw the movie first and then read the book. as much as i love(d) the movie (and the dark humour), while i was reading the book, i was actually getting kind of pissed off that the movie parodied it as much as it did.
i can’t wait for this new adaptation. the only thing i’m not looking forward to is that it isn’t based in the 80’s.
although the harron movie is gory and dark, i still don’t think it was as dark as the book because of how serious the majority of the tone was in the book. i’m in no way saying it had no humour, but the movie embellished it a bit. what i find so aggravating, is reading the reactions to this remake. between reading comments online and then after i posted it on twitter, i got all this whiny nonsense back about it “being perfect the way that it is” and “it’s so good, why are they fucking it up” and “christian bale _________…” yadda yadda…
it’s been like 7 years since i read the book, but i pretty much remember christian bale wasn’t like pat bateman in the book… however, i believe that he was a fantastic pat bateman. i don’t know who could play a “better” one, but because this is the only version of the movie we have to compare it to, we’ll never have a good/clear opinion.
i’ve read comments about people bitching about how it’s going to be an insult between the cast and the adaption – and it’s pissing me off. why can’t people realize that IT’S JUST DIFFERENT?
i think people are missing the point and/or just don’t know that THE MOVIE ISN’T AN ACCURATE DEPICTION OF THE BOOK… i’d love to know the percentage of people that actually read the book vs. didn’t that are leaving these comments.
the way that i’m thinking is, we’ve gotta just pretend that we never even saw that movie so that we give it a fair chance.
either way, i could give a shitfuck what anyone thinks, i’m excited, and i figured i’d share this information with whoever reads this website. #w00t
