  1. There will not be a new F13 film without a settlement/agreement/buyout/whatever between Miller & Cunningham. No distributor would make a film with just the things Miller has the rights to, and ONLY distribute it in the United States, as they would be legally required to do. Everything hinges on a settlement - or a re-appeal. Regardless, they have until the 12th of this month to do something. We'll know more then.
  2. I, for one, would love to see the tale of Jason's conception and all the things that culminated with Pamela's transformation from All-American girl to her descent into madness. The original F13 is a bunch of stories about the past (Enos telling about the camp curse, Pamela telling about Jason's drowning) - and I think Elias deserves his story to be told. From a psychology standpoint, I would be enthralled at what happened to make these people into the monsters they became.
  3. Interesting. But it sounds like it would be a F13 movie without Jason in the hockey mask. Might make a great springboard into rebooting the franchise, but would people go to see it if it didn't have him in the hockey mask (yet)? This may deserve its own discussion/thread.
  4. "Friday the 13th: The Beginning" A prequel, it seems. What do you think the story will be?
  5. An easy fix to this problem is to ensure you escape BEFORE HE HITS RAGE MODE. If Jason really existed, he would absolutely be unstunable when enraged. And while the counselors (victims) would wish they could call and complain to someone, Jason would still kill them, just the same. Welcome to the horrendously wonderful world of Friday the 13th, friend.
  6. I don't think the existing screenplay is associated with Springhill Entertainment (Lebron). I would think whichever production company acquires the rights after the settlement/agreement/buyout/whatever would be approached with it immediately afterward.
  7. According to the F13 Franchise page on Wikipedia, a new screenplay's already been written. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friday_the_13th_(franchise)#Future
  8. I tried smoking an enormous (8lb) pork shoulder this weekend. It was good, but I was only able to get it about 3 hours of smoke time, so there was no bark at all. I typically cryovac and freeze these things after the bark forms to thaw and put in the crock pot later. But there was really only a hint of smokiness in this effort. Not my best work, sadly.
  9. Does anyone know of any online resources that gives updates on the case? I would very much like to keep up with the events.
  10. Yep. Several of us are over there: @Truth, @Bropollocreed79, @NthnButAGoodTime . . . come join the party! ?
  11. They have a forum just like this one, but dedicated to RDR2. Come check it out. I'm a mod over there. ? https://www.rdr2.com/forums/
  12. It DOES look great, but I HATE FIRST PERSON GAMES!!!! Why can't they just make a toggle . . . ??
  13. Very nice. Someone who can should post a legend of specifically who they all are.
  14. I looked it up. Looks compelling, even though I hate first-person games.
  15. Many of we gamers tend to watch the calendar for the release of a game we're excited about. What's yours?
  16. All the host has to do is wait for the match to end, then kick both out of the lobby. Problem is solved with a little patience.
  17. I'm curious - how does one know when they're in the Salt Mines? Do they get a notification?
  18. Perhaps it helps that I never saw any of those. ? Understand, though. This isn't about being "wronged" or "scorned." This is about an innocent child -- having been raised in 1950's America, which didn't like anything different or unusual in the first place -- tortured and abused throughout his life simply for being born the way he was. His mother -- an innocent herself -- loved him with all her heart. But society refused to let it alone, so it took him from her. To me, that's quite different from having a cheating spouse or somebody just being bullied. To be honest, it truly was the backstory that drew me to the series. I didn't care for it until I knew the depth of the story. Okay, I'll throw you a bone, here. Yes, I definitely think them trying to do 10+ films with a sack-head Jason wouldn't have worked nearly as well. The hockey mask definitely helped. NOW -- that being said, had Michael Myers worn that hockey mask rather than his painted Shatner mask -- would many of the loyal F13 fans instead be loyal Halloween fans? (I'm not saying they have to be one or another. I'm just wondering how many F13 fans would place their affections solely on Halloween, had the masks been different?
  19. I'll go first. I can't speak for the world, but for me personally -- it was the root of the story. Most "killer" characters either didn't have much background development, or were just "evil" to begin with. They could still tell a good story, but they were always "the bad guy" and you were supposed to hope for their victims to survive. With Jason, though -- it was sort of the other way round, wasn't it? Both Jason and his mother started off as victims. They became statistics of a society who either didn't care enough about them to help, or turned an intentional blind eye to their sufferings. Society killed Jason -- the only thing that really mattered to Pamela. So, she snapped. In F13, often the victims are people we AREN'T supposed to like. Then we cheer when Jason RISES again and extracts vengeance for himself and his mother. If we know the whole story, we feel for JASON. As parents, we feel for PAMELA. They are not lashing out because they are evil. They are lashing out because they were forced there by society. Does that make Jason/Pamela sort of "anti-hero" characters? That's open to interpretation. But in these films, we often enjoy seeing Jason clean house, and THEN get to a point where we're ready for him to be stopped. And he is. At least for a while. The formula works, and it's an emotional payoff. That's why this story will always be my favorite.
  20. Two things: I think people would have largely been happier with the Grendel/uber-Jason release over the single player challenges. Please. Have mercy on a copywriter/proofreader. I beseech you to fix your instances of "would you OF rather," "rather OF," and "could OF" by replacing "of" with "have". It's making me want to claw my eyeballs out. Could've = Could have. Could've ≠ Could of. Bless you.
