I'm a lifelong Horror fan but these movies do absolutely NOTHING for me and I say that as a fan of the Friday the 13th series which specialized in the mindless destruction of teenage flesh. But say what you will about the F13 movies, at least they had a charm to them that I find completely lacking in the Final Destination movies and the two other major Horror franchises of this era; Saw and Resident Evil. These movies just simply bore the shit out of me. Sure, they have some nice gore and effects but that's not enough for me these days. There is no real characterization nor do I give a shit whether anyone lives or dies. Now, the F13th movies were hardly Citizen Kane but the characters were clearly defined (the jock, the nerd, the hot chick, the mousey girl etc...) and were usually played by people who I found to be likeable for the most part. But everyone in these franchises today are fucking assholes. The worst thing is that I feel no real suspence in these movies. You KNOW the characters are going to get it and it's just a matter of how and when. I think the movie makers don't bother trying to make me care about these people because they see them as disposable meat puppets. Their lack of interest causes my disinterest. What I think the people who make the Final Destination movies should do is relaunch the Faces of Death series since watching people getting splatttered is what the FD movies are all about anyway. But don't waste out time with these boring and fucking vapid useless cunts they call characters. Just show people getting wasted. That's all. No bullshit, just present the scenario and let us see some horrific shit and do it documentary style.

Glee 3D... I saw a commercial where everyone was talking to each other as the characters. I was confused and blown away by this. What a stupid fucking mistake. People who do see this movie(god help them) will just roll their eyes at this. reportabuse... Really? I'm sick and tired of tea party members trying to do this reverse racism shit. Anti-white? Um that period in history should be focused on and black people then were horribly mistreated. Saying the film is anti-white just shows you have some serious issues in your life... Instead of dealing with them you've lowered yourself to these basic and pathetic attempts to either be edgy or allow hatred into your life. Very sad. The main reason I'm looking forward to FD5 is that they are attempting to change up the system. Adding the idea that if you kill someone you dodge death's bullet is interesting and actually builds a moral issue to a very basic plot. One day i hope they dive into the fact that so many people can see the future or deaths plan. They could really dive into a backstory of those people... Doubt they'll ever do it but it would be cool if they did.

...was garbage. None of the death scenes were fun or creative. They just felt lazy to me. The characters are awful. The....."plot".....if that's what we're calling it.....could have been interesting. But they take the one intriguing aspect and do very little with it. People, stay away from it.

That's racist against white people waaaah

The reason blacks complain about whites making movies about their history, is that when white filmmakers make movies about black people, is that they can only display a white perspective on the question. Now, sometimes that's enough. But you can't REALLY step out of your skin, no matter how gifted some people are at simulating this. Male directors can portray women, and women men, but both are still in their skins. Generally, when whites make movies about black people, white audiences are a lot happier with the results than are black audiences--those films reinforce the perspectives whites have. Blacks agree with some of those perspectives, and disagree with others. Neither side really has the "truth" in this matter, but it shouldn't be hard to see that any "group X" would be happier with a member of "group X" telling their history of oppression by "group Y" than they would having a member of "Y" tell that story, whether you're talking about Fat people, gay people, women, blacks, or any other group. Think Jews would rather have a Jewish director tell the story of the Holocaust than a German one? This is natural human stuff. Of course, many times, members of the "Y" group really can create moving, honest, artful statements of lasting value. But the nervousness of the "X's" is just human: once burned, twice shy.

I enjoyed all of the first 3 especially the 2nd one. FD are on the same shelf as Scream and Shaun of the Dead for me.... sort of meta-horror or comedy-horror.

The blatant absurdity of saying a white white producer, director and writer made an "anti-white" racist movie is just so funny, I almost spilled my coffee. Clearly, some Talkbackers are just making a very sly satirical dig at racist assholes who think the world revolves around their lack of melanin and history of privilege. Thanks! Made my day. That was really, seriously hysterical!

I wish Glee would figure out what it wants to be. At it's best it is Anti-High School Musical At it's worse it is High School Musical

The fact that 30 Minutes or Less has a lower Rotten Tomatoes score than The Glee movie is yet another reason why I tend towards hating humanity.

I have a mild interest in seeing "the Help" but a huge one in seeing "Django." While not perfect, the script looks almost unique, and I can't wait.

You're not the only one. Long time horror fan here as well and you couldn't have described my feelings for those 3 franchises any better. Completely agree.

Love it when Skeeter's got her six shooters out, aiming to gun down the whole lot of them white society women, and she says, "Somebody give Hilly a gun."

Christ, the chick's been in like 5 movies - one of which is a "Teens gotta get laid" thing, and the others are all by the book formula comedies, and all of the sudden she's Meryl Streep! Gimme a break! Alright, I'll give credit where credit is due and admit that she was pretty decent in that Steve Carell movie, but she's not exactly Oscar bait.

...beyond the first one (which had the mystery of its newness) and the second (which actually built on the first) is that they are not movies anymore. They are a collection of death scenes. The death scenes are sometimes awesome and hilarious (the gymnast, as he stated is fantastic) but you can watch these deaths in a 10 minute youtube compilation and be okay for not having seen the movie. The main problem is that they always try to insert a plot device (here it is: if you kill someone else, then you can take their life and "death" skips you.) Then they flirt around this plot point til they eventually ignore it. And everyone dies in the end. Predictable. Boring. SPOILER. It would have been interesting if they actually bought in to their own premise, or even if the ending played into it -- sorry its neither a surprise with the main character talking about going to paris the whole movie, nor interesting. Have the surviving characters CAUSE something to happen (like Mr. Glass from Unbreakable), show that they caused the plane crash from the first one, instead of just them happening to be on the plane. Reused footage + coincidence is not a cool ending and doesn't tie things together. It's just a mish mash of ideas that don't make a movie.

Witness most of the commentators here (& on similar forums), whites who will defend anything that makes whites look bad. I don't know exactly what the psychology is that buys into that sort of self-hatred though I'd guess that a lifetime of official propaganda and schooling saying your race is basically evil and guilty of everything it has ever been accused of has a lot to do with it. Along with that propaganda is the usual self-contradictory miseducation, viz., "no such thing as race" (except when there is), race is just a matter of the melanin content of your skin (newsflash: light-skinned Asians are not white. Albino negroes are not white.) And so forth.

The Glee phenomenom amazes me. I assume this show is beloved by mostly virgin girls, awkward tweens, nerds and gay men? I try watching it and it's annoying. The characters actually creep me out a bit and the dialogue is delivered in a strange "campy" sort of way. I don't get it at all. Is Glee supposed to be funny or a musical drama? 30 minutes or less is the only film I would consider seeing but only for free if there was nothing else on.
Aug. 12, 2011, 4:33 p.m. CST
Faces of Death looks crude and amateurish while the FD movies make death look stylish and flamboyant. Once again, film improves on reality.
Aug. 12, 2011, 4:47 p.m. CST
I wonder how white racists would feel about black people if black people used to own white slaves, treated whites like property, killed whites while the law looked the other way, raped white women and children, etc. I wonder if they'd say things like "get over it", "that was in the past", "it didn't happen to them so why do white people still bring that up?".
Aug. 12, 2011, 6:15 p.m. CST
Black criminals rape and murder white people all the time, at a rate exponentially higher than that of the races reversed. In addition we face a nonstop onslaught of anti-white propaganda in every media and educational institution. Not only are we told to get over it, it is hardly ever brought up. Because you see pointing out racism on the other side is racist.

Dude, I am seriously sorry to hear that you are a horror fan like I am, you seem like the biggest douche on here with your all caps posts and that nonsense about "FACT!" when 90% of the time your so called facts are garbage...I love how you spend all this time talking about how predictable the deaths are and how you know who's going to die, and then you mention how Friday the 13th is different?!?!? Have you really watched them? It's always obvious in those movies that only the heroine will live, everybody else dies, they're just as predictable as FD. I also love how you complain about characters in these movies, so really, the same cliche'd characters they've been using since the 80's is clearly defined huh? Those are characters you care about huh? The ones you refer to as "the jock, the nerd...etc". I'm not saying FD flicks are the best horror out there, but your points are literally retarded, please STFU and stop posting your BS on this site!

As someone here suggested a while back, the third one should have involved whole parts of the same city as death kept having to play an ever larger game of catch-up. Could have had a strange apocalyptic series of inexplicable terrorist events sort of feel. Maybe that's ass, maybe borderline tasteless, but I thought it was kinda neat.

I grew up on these enjoyable but forgettable adult comedies released in August: Men At Work, Stakeout, Married To The Mob, Its always nice to see a superior genre film like 30 Min or Less. Sure it may have bombed but that's part of its charm. And also while it will be a cult film 15-20 years from now. Congrats Aziz and Danny for making me laugh but not have to think to hard about it. See you at The Wright Stuff XVII.
Aug. 15, 2011, 6:03 p.m. CST
Theres some great deaths in this but no doubt with David Koechner in it, there had to be a Whammy of an ending, which I must admit really makes the film and puts a big smile on the "I didnt see that coming" face, even though like the deaths, the signs are there! Go watch and enjoy!
