    Erod why do you have to hate on decent sequels to horror movies like you did with New Nightmare and Jason goes to hell

    Jason goes to hell wasn't good, what the hell are you talking about.
    If I recall, Hell was barely in it, and that was the movie that explained he was a demon worm that possessed members of the Vorhees family or something imbecilic of that nature.

    Tactlesscat, when i say Jason goes to hell was decent i mean in the way that they tried something different, same thing with Jason X, did they work well that is debatable but they are slashers part of a series that had odd parts anyway and are possessed body parts and space really that much worse then a guy who can keep coming back from the dead, be like seven feet tall when his appearance in the first was as a child, or have super strength

    I don't know, I still prefer Freddy v Jason over Jason X. I mean, seriously, why in space, there is no reason for Jason Vorhees to be in space!


    And....IS THAT A DR. WHO ANIME!?!?! Is that honestly for real?

    Because he's entitled to his own opinion and just because you like a movie he doesn't have to? You know, just a thought.

    I actually thought the same thing when I saw what you were going to review this, since that Review made a fan of Leo.

    But it's awesome to see 2 differente styles of reviewing and points of view. Nice

    Maybe it's the fact that it's 1 in the morning where I am but I found myself unable to stop laughing! XD Yeah Jason X is, while horrible, a pretty hilarious movie. Though I always prefered Freddy myself. Great Review Erod can't wait for the next one!

    Ok, I admit it, my biggest problem with the movie was that it delayed Freddy vs Jason. I was so excited for that movie (it was pretty much my Star Wars episode 1) that when they announced they were doing Jason goes to space instead....well, let's just say it's a good thing I didn't have net access back then, because might have gotten into some trouble for sending threatening emails to New Line. (I might have been a little hot headed back then) On it's own this movie is fun if you're in the right state of mind, but it's still Jason in space.

    There's a Doctor Who anime?! I'd watch that. Anyway, I did expect this movie to be worse. I mean, the premise itself is stupid. Yet, surprisingly, it had some cool moments. I'm not a guy, but I still enjoyed the scene where the android kicked Jason's ass. So yeah, this was a great review.
  • Sir Luchadore
    Ah i remember when this came out in theaters. I was not the biggest fan of the idea being that i watched all the others before it. But upon watching it i found myself enjoying it even the nod back to part VII. Hell even with this i enjoy it more than the Platinum Dunes remake. Now as for your review for Rob Zombie's Halloween i'm gonna have to wait for that one because i will hope you at least talk about how good the House of 1000 Corpses and Devil Rejects first.

    This movie was funny as hell. Trying to combine as many sci-fi cliches as they could with the Friday the 13th mythos came out as a very campy movie. Do like how the ending sort of sets up a possible re-launch/re-boot of the "original series".

    You REALLY want to see Jason in space, go watch the anime titled The Irresponsible Captain Tylor, which features our favorite hockey mask-wearing man among the space destroyer Soyokaze's compliment of marines.

    "The Irresponsible Captain Tylor"

    Whoa, that takes me back.. That was one of the first anime I watched!

    And, yeah, one of the crewmen was a masked guy named Jason. Hee...

    First off -- for those whom say Jason X Delayed freddy vs jason - it didn't. Every script that was coming out for FvsJ was either terrible or unfilmable. Plain and simple New Line had the script for Jason X sitting there -- it was a simple movie to make and fed the need for another Jason Film while still leaving PLENTY of room continuity wise to explain how he got out of hell AND have a FvsJ to come out and still make sense.

    New Line could have held off until 2003 for FvsJ -- but it would have been a risk financially when you think about it - by then it would have been 10 years since the last friday the 13th and 12 years since the last 'real' freddy movie (New Nightmare wasn't in continuity so we can't count that.)

    To hold off on a Jason film for 10 years (8 was risky too...) would have made the money men at New Line cut the budget for FvsJ to less than it ended up being in 2003.

    Just my POV.

    As for Cronenberg saying TDK:Rises sucking -- that's not what he really said. He said it's not worthy of the hype. He knows what Nolan is capable of and thinks the Batman movies are competent but not worthy of all the praise.

    ---and I agree when it comes to TDK:Rises sadly. I wanted to love it but didn't. The most interesting character in the whole film was Selena Kyle - Bane bothered me and the

    *SPOILERS*








    Whole reveal at the end of the child's protector being bane etc. for Talia








    *END SPOILERS*

    fell completely flat on me. I didn't like it and frankly it made Bane's whole build up of being this impossible to control member of the League pointless.

    Just one guys opinion :)

    Yeah, this movie may not be scary, but c'mon! This is a Jason Voorhees movie, and we expect a big kill count. Oh BTW, I actually really loved the sleeping bag death. Those were fun. Man, I am evil. >:D

    Anyway, as for what's next, I'll be the first to admit it: I don't think Rob Zombie's Halloween isn't that bad. Not many people like this movie because they took out the mystery behind Michael Myers, but I actually like this. Oh well, let's see how much is going to be torn.

    My god, I don't know if I love you more for the Earth 2 or the Quantum Leap references. That's two of my ultimate childhood favorites right there.

    Rob Zombie's Halloween 2 made me think about chewing my own testicles off to take my mind that I actually expected it to be good after his first attempt of raping the series. I physically wanted to shit on Sheri Zombie after watching Halloween so Rob Zombie would know what it's like when someone shits on something you love. It baffles me that he actually made Laurie Strode so annoying you wish Michael Myers would have killed her before she had a chance to grow up.

    Sorry, I'm ranting on a movie you have yet to bust, but I couldn't hold it in when I saw that copy of Rob Zombie's Halloween sitting on your staircase like it had a right to exist. Don't just bust that abomination, kill it with fire. Then shit on said fire.

    Wait I just realised... how the hell did that military facility just be forgotten for 400+ years? Did the people running it just forget they had it? It's not like the entire administrative team or even all the personell could have been in that one room Jason cleared, surely no matter how off the books and black ops it was there was someone back in washington waiting for a report? Hell, or just wanting to investigate where the hell a bunch of scientists and military people who presumably had families just up and dissapeared to.

    Hell did it even establish where the base was? Because if it's on earth, even one long-abandoned due to the standard pollution-driven mass-exodus... yeah, what the fuck? Pretty sure that wouldn't have happened on the same day and thus there would have been time to investigate that base going dark. Plus the endign seems to establish that they're right over the earth and it's still inhabitable.

    And if the capture/freeze was meant to be set in the present day as it seemed to be and wasn't on earth... again, what the fuck? Why would they bring him to a space-station or moon colony, and that would make even less sense for someone to just lose altogether.

    I guess what I'm asking at the end of the day is why the hell are these people finding the place where Jason lies frozen by way of spaceship?

    I like Jason X, it's one of my all-time favourite 'bad'/guilty pleasure films. JASON! IN SPACE! At the end of the day, it's a film that's well aware of how daft it is and makes fun of itself, and it is really funny at times.

    If those were real Space Marines Jason would be fucked! Lets see you regenerate from a bolter shot. (BTW for me BFG dosen't mean big fucking gun, it means Battle Fleet Gothic ^-^).

    Oh god everyone knows when your character ends up in space it means you have run out of ideas -.-;

    But what do you call it when Busta Rhymes and Tara Reid are in your film, and instead of keeping the series going by bringing back classic characters, you throw in a cast of people no one cares for and decide to shoot over half the movie in the same vein as a reality show. (Halloween Resurrection for those who don't get the reference.) Or a lame story about a mad scientist who makes masks that kill children and has bar none the most annoying song of all time playing constantly in the background. (Season Of The Witch.) Or you decide to add a forced daughter story in a film, have one of the most iconic and original villains (the only slasher villain that speaks,) say the absolute cheesiest one liners of all time, and focus it COMPLETELY around the late 80's early 90's 3D gimmick. (Freddy's Dead) Or make the star of a film a guy who is VERY effeminate and screams like a girl, but he's the main guy so he lives till the end screaming every five seconds. Then not even have the decency to hire a make up artist worth a crap so Freddy winds up looking terrible, (Freddy's Revenge.) While it's true that shooting a villain into space is DEFINITELY a sign that a production company has run out of ideas, there are LOTS of other ways to ruin a franchise. Every horror icon in my eyes have at least two. For Jason sadly, he has a few more bad ones. I'd say part 5, A New Beginning, Jason Goes To Hell (For the lack of Jason in the actual film) and Jason X (SPACE!!!) Also, you have to let all the movies slide on ridiculous stories to an extent. But at the same time the remake of Friday The 13th was probably my favorite, the Nightmare on Elm Street remake to me was garbage, and don't get me started on Rob Zombies Halloween remakes, I actually think it evens out all the slashers to have 3 bad remakes. (The Halloween franchise I let the H1 remake pass as a meh, it was good to see Michael Myers again, but H2 being the WORST of the remakes by far.)

    I find it good Slasher cheese.

    Great review the nom nom song was genious!
    Allthough this movie looked horrible who cares if some actor who played in a previous show gets to shoot a lot of guns, the whole scene was obviously played for laughs.

    I saw this in the theaters. My expectations were very, very, very, very, very, very, very VERY low for this one, but I was bored and went anyway. I think because my expectations were so low I actually had a pretty good time with it. I own it on DVD. Not the best in the series, but a good watch if you want something goofy.

    I didn't like the Rob Zombie version because there was nothing resembling suspense in it but instead was copying every other film out there in the torture porn genre -- guts and blood. I consider the original "Halloween" one of my favorite horror films because it's still scary to me. It's one of the reasons why I STILL check the backseat of my car when I'm in a strange parking lot at night. Zombie's version had gone from the innovator to the imitator, and it annoyed the hell out of me.

    In speaking with Todd Farmer, the writer of Jason X, it turns out the original script was much better than what we ended up with. A *LOT* of the cheese can be laid at the feet of producer Sean Cunningham.

    I honestly don't see why a movie like this would end up being made. I can imagine the one pitching it just saying "So Jason gets cryogenically frozen, then a salvage team finds him and takes him into space."

    Pitching that would've made a funny Fedora Freddy pitch.

    Good review.
