  1. I was thinking that instead of doing the typical movie review, it’d be interesting to examine, from a storytelling perspective, which ideas (concepts, plot points, etc.) worked and which didn’t for each film of the series. I'll deliberately be ignoring certain continuity mistakes and technical flubs when making my evaluations, so stuff like dates that don't fit together within the timeline, inconsistencies with Jason's appearance or bad acting won’t be up for consideration. Obviously, these are simply my personal opinions, and you’re more than welcome to agree or disagree in the comments, point out things I forgot to mention, and share your own lists of things you thought worked or didn’t in the films.
  2. I'm asking moreso out of curiosity since I just thought of this right now. So if you were given the reigns in making a new Friday movie what would be? An original story? A continuation? Share it here!
  3. Jason not being Mentally Slow?

    If you watched through the movies.....Jason doesn't show "Mentally" disabled concepts....He reacts like a regular human....dodging attacks when he was alive.He uses his brain like a regular human aka using different methods of killing. He knows when to kill a victim....either by baiting,luring, and trapping them......Jason could be like Michael myers and chooses not to speak and stuff. Even in the 2009 version they also reflect jason as a skilled hunter using various traps and making basic tunnel roots through out the camp.

  6. Part 6-Freddy vs. Jason Theory

    Ok, so this is going to be a pretty long winded post about a silly theory that came to me today watching P8. I know this is ridiculous, and I am aware they are just movies and the changes and differences between movies are about trends, new filmmakers and money. It is still fun to have these weird conversations sometimes though. This theory will deal with parts 6-10 only. Let us assume for the sake of argument, parts 1-5 happened just as we saw on screen, plot holes and all. What if…. Part 6 was a Freddy induced nightmare Tommy was having. That would explain the supernatural elements, including all of the weird morphing and what not. Jason acts just like a nightmare, impervious and relentless. What if, Freddy was trying to regenerate himself by using Tommy’s fear of Jason. It backfires in the end because Tommy was able to take control of the dream at the end and win. Freddy was just too weak to make it happen. Next we have Tina, a poor girl who witnessed the very accidental death of her father when she was young. Freddy finds her and tries to use her fears and anxieties. In her dream, as she feels responsible for her father’s death, she manifests that as powers. Once again, we have a rambling Jason who seems to be all over the map, moving in and around for no real reason other than to make things worse for Tina. In the end, she too can make it out because Freddy is weak, and he allowed her to have her dream power. Part 8. It all had to be a damn dream. That explains the dystopian New York with the toxic waste, the indifferent New Yorkers that are straight out of the mind of a small town person. This also explains how a Jason that was dissolved in a bath tub in Hell’s Kitchen can be reborn later. Plus, the girl nearly drowned as a child, coupled with the Jason myth explain the dream state where she sees child Jason and hears all the child like things from Jason. Fuck the elephant noise. So small town girl with trauma issues dreams of that trauma thanks to Freddy, yet she wins in the end. Part 9 is the fever dream of a soon to be father that freddy tries to manipulate. It has to be right? The running themes are parenthood. At the end, Freddy has had enough and pops up to end it, and this time he decides to research for ten years on how to bring Jason back from part 4’s death. This is FvJ. Of course, we also have the newly reunited couple walking off in to the sunset as well Part 10 happens after FvJ. That explains the whole Jason is a manifest body thing, and not on the turnpike between New York and New Jersey. Ok, the ties that bind them all and suggest dreams. Each Jason is vastly different from the last. This is because they are dream interpretations of the dreamer. He is the Jason they expect from whatever story they heard. Each one has an almost idyllic ending. Look at the first 4. The survivors were messed up gibbering mounds at the end. Look at the ending of 6. Tommy is better and he gets the hot babe. Part 7, dad saves the day. All is forgiven and the new loves carry on. 8, the love birds are reunited with their loyal dog. 9 isn’t idyllic per-se, but that is because we see the end from Freddy’s point of view, though there is the sunrise thing. More dream imagery. The music is all weird, even the sounds of ki ma. It is as if the people dreaming don't actually know Jason, with 6 being the closest, and 8 being the furthest off. It is like a game of telephone as each psyche puts their own spin on things. Anyway, that is my long drawn out Freddy versus Jason was 6 movies long theory. Poke thy holes… or not. Feel free to laugh at me too.
  7. Hello! Not sure which subdomain (if any :/) this belongs in. If it isn't appropriate, please delete, admins. I thought it'd be fun for everyone to list their personal rankings on which F13 films they liked, from best to least. Now, I have not seen Jason X or the Freddy one, so mine are based on the first 9 and the reboot. Here goes! 1. Part 2 . I think this one has all the elements I enjoy about the genre. Jason makes his debut, which is the only thing placing this above 1, enjoyable cast of counselors. Judge me as you will, but I could have used a moment or three of more boobs. Otherwise, perfect. Sack head always freaked me out more than the hockey mask. And the reveal was excellent! 2. Part 1 . The film was gritty and when I first saw it I was surprised by the ending. Other than the lack of realism (even for an F13 flick!) what with Pamela's kills, it's as near perfect as a slasher gets. 3. Part 4 . I expect this to be most people's choice. It's an excellent addition to the franchise. Probably should be number 1, in truth, but I have a soft spot for the first 2. Hey, I'm 45 years old... what can I say? Feldman's final scenes were boss. 4. Part 3. I recall seeing this in the movies and even then I thought the 3D effects were cheesy af... But, otherwise, it's a solid entry. I rewatched a few times over the years, even as recently as 2 weeks ago, and it holds up well, despite the forced perspective for those 3Dkills. 5. Part 6. I struggle with ranking the rest, as there's a real separation for me from those 4 above to the remainder. I think this one wins out as best of the "worst", though. I like this Tommy well enough, certainly better than Part 5's. Nowhere near as much as Feldman's, of course. I also struggle with the fact that they made Jason so supernatural and, well... weird, going forward. But this was the first in that new direction. And I think still the best. 6. Reboot. Other than making Jason a feral woodsman, fast and agile, I liked this one. There was a good group of victims, well-rounded tropes. Girl next door, hot chick, stoner, jock (also a stoner) "hero", big jerk, etc. The more I think I about it, the more I a waffle between moving this up a spot. It wasn't perfect, by any stretch, and could never approach those big 4, but I enjoyed it more than I think most did. A couple of humorous parts helped, too. 7. Part 7. The last of the ones that I'll likely ever rewatch (again). Tina is ok and I like that there's a scumbag to root against, but the film, overall, is as mediocre as it gets. But hey, Russell and that Chad sweater, right? 8. Part 5. We're getting into the films that I didn't care for as much, now. This one, for me, suffers from the direction they took with Tommy. While I understand many/most of us would go crazy from his experiences, I didn't care for how it was handled. And the fact that Jason's involvement, was... shall we say minimal? did not help. Though I still would love a Roy Burns in our beloved game here... 8. Part 8. I wouldn't say I actively dislike this addition to the franchise... It has some redeeming elements. Some interesting kills, a couple of "likable" characters... But the boat and the streets are no place for Jason. As tired as it may be to be set in the woods and cabins, that feels like F13 to me. Not the Big Apple. Well, the fifteen minutes of the city it's set in anyways. In totality? Bad. 9. Part 9. Wow. Well, I watched it. Once. Don't really need to say much more than this. As I stated, I have not braved X or Freddy's, yet. So... what say yous?
  8. Note: Pamela, Roy, , JTGH Possessions, and Jason's Demise are included The Remake Is Not
