I have to agree about Part 5. While the cinematography was alright and the effects were good for it's time period, it just wasn't Jason! And even early on in the movie you could easily tell something just felt off.
Kane is definitely the top Jason in my book, followed closely by Derek Mears. I think he followed really closely in Kane's footsteps for the reboot and brought that same vicious spark to the character.
I also really have to give props to Ken Kirzinger, though. I mean, for what it was, FvJ was good. Were there some things that could have been much better? Absolutely. But there were also a lot of good scenes and special effects that I really enjoyed, and Ken did his best within the limits set by Ronny Yu. And of course Robert Englund is the ONLY Freddy in my opinion, so of course he was spot-on within the entire movie.
They did what they could, you know? They tried to make a decent crossover and while it may not go down in horror movie history, it's still good in its own right.
I definitely have to say that it ranks higher on the scale as far as JGTH is concerned. I REALLY didn't enjoy that installment, despite the fact that Jason had a grand total of like, 5 minutes on-screen. It just wasn't a hit with me. :/
