Me being a fan of the Friday the 13th film series, I can't wait for this one
Nov. 2, 2000, 9:47 a.m. CST
If you want some truly mind expanding music (hip hop no less) than this is the must have album of the year along with Kid A by Radiohead. Perfect music to get baked by!!!! P.S. I'm first
Nov. 2, 2000, 9:48 a.m. CST
so I'm 2nd, not first

Jason + space nookie = Joy. Now go smoke a fatty.

as long as it has gore violence nudity and Jason it is fine by me. It sounds like atleast they deliver on what they promise unlike "Jason takes Manhattan" or Jason on the Love Boat as I like to call it. It doesn't have to be a 'good' film like Fight Club or Requiem for a Dream...it is on a different standard. It needs to be a good slasher film and it sounds like it is THANK GOD. No more softcore crap like I know and Urban Legends. Now we get the god stuff. And for those who will hate this film just cause itis a Friday the 13th film I say just ignore it, its not your bag and that sfine. Its a cult thing and if it is good for the type of film it is trying to be thats enough. Example -Friday 4 to Friday 8. Make the Friday fans happy, if this film does that its fine by me. Its like Godzilla films...man in suit AWESOME better open than Way of the Gun Harry...hah! and hollywood compromised shite like Devlinzilla that doesn't give the fans what they want is the real probelm with hollywood. So when someone makes a small little cult film they care about that is something to support...even if it features a hocky masked zombie.

"Wow, original idea! Let's make a film that has a lot of in-jokes, references to classic horror movies, and a purposely-cheesy plot and throw in a lot of jabs at the genre! Not like that hasn't been done before! Hollywood will be making fun of itself! Heck, the actual FRIDAY THE 13th series will be making fun of itself! Yeah, we can do that..........." Jesus Christ, I'm sick of this whole "Let's be post-modern" crap that has been showing up so much. I mean, does the FRIDAY THE 13th series really NEED to be parodied anymore? Even if this is supposed to "have a sense of humor about itself," isn't that genre of horror/comedy starting to get tired already? Sheesh!

....just suffering a bit from the Jonathan Lipnicki syndrome....On to Jason X...lots and lots of fun. Just go into it with the right frame of mind and all will be good.

This is what movies need. Just a movie that is setting out to give people a good time and not try to win any awards. One question: Is is called Jason "X" aka Jason "Ten"?
Nov. 2, 2000, 11:44 a.m. CST
Wonder where he'll go from here....
Nov. 2, 2000, 11:47 a.m. CST
I agree... OutKast is the most innovative group in music today, hip hop or otherwise. Every one of their albums takes a step forward and delivers something completely different than the one before. As far as Jason X, well, I have had the opportunity to speak with Kane Hodder about this and he says that if there is any hope at all for the series, than this would be it. He said it was definitely the best one that HE has worked on. Now eat my poop!
Nov. 2, 2000, 11:47 a.m. CST
What, are you a LaFace executive or something? Don't get me wrong, I'm an adamant Outkast fan. i make it a point to get their CD's the very day they are released but what the fuck are you doing plugging a CD at a film website?

I was thinking the other night about Moriarty reviewing this. Now it's happened. A few other instances too.

... but yesterday, wasn't everyone all up in arms about the Pink Panther sequel with Mike Myers, and bemoaning how awful it is that Hollywood can't come up with a new movie plot to save it's life? I mean this sounds interesting, but heck, if you put enough spin and hype on it, so would "Triumph of the Will 2 - Blitzkrieg Boogaloo." Look folks, Hollywood is smart - they will keep making recycled dregs like this as long as suckers keep filling theaters to see it. Can "Jason meets Abbot and Costello" be far behind?

Wankers.The lot of you.This is a steaming turd and Moriarty's review provides pure divine reason as to how he has No fucking taste.FUCK OFF.GROW UP.GET A FUCKING LIFE.
Nov. 2, 2000, 12:36 p.m. CST
And LOTS of them....Im SO there... NUXX OUT

You should be reviewing movies for Undertaker's Digest or be working at Hollywood Book & Poster shop on Hollywood Blvd.
Nov. 2, 2000, 3:17 p.m. CST
It's not like humor and horror don't go together. Lighten up, enjoy the the ride....Jason's back in town, and by all accounts, better than ever.
Nov. 2, 2000, 5:13 p.m. CST
Is this really necessary? Hopefully one of these days another Freddy or Jason type killer will be created and we can get something original....and I'm not talking about some stupid hook-guy or something, just some really fucking creepy Freddy-type dude.
Nov. 2, 2000, 5:34 p.m. CST
...but for $15 million I expect "Mortal Kombat" type digital f/x. Wild, Wild, West was made for $150 million and you could still see digital scrapings.

What I read is the movie sucks, but if you just go there to have fun at the movie's you'll enjoy. I see bad Critic reviews in the future, but good sales. I'll see it. i could use a laugh at a horror flick. Next time. let's make it scary. I want a good horrow movie sooo much!
Nov. 2, 2000, 6:07 p.m. CST
It's nice to finally see a popcorn movie that is just that- a popcorn movie. Back in the day, a bunch of guys could get together and just make a cool movie. Now popcorn movies are reduced to pre-fab fare like "Charlie's Angels." I don't care how hot they are or how funny Bill Murray is. The biggest kicker is, they don't even have fucking guns! The new silhouette absolutely blows. Bad-ass bombshells with guns? Believable. Bad-ass bombshells with kung fu? Insulting.

I just have to say it.. when the same reviewer will chide a film for irresponsible violent content, and then praise a "crushing girl's skull" scene in another film, they've got some explaining to do. The difference would be what, Moriarity? It makes it hard to judge someone's opinion if they won't explain themselves enough to be consistent. (I give Ebert the same flack for his anti-slasher but pro artistic-violence stuff so don't take it too personally)
Nov. 2, 2000, 7:51 p.m. CST
docsx, you actually studied Wild Wild West? How could you stand it? I could barely go through it and I was channel surfing between it and another show on HBO! By the way, this movie sounds cool, but I'll wait for it to come out in video, so I can scare the shit out of myself watching it down in my basement (it's freaky. The doors open by themselves!! Seriously!)
Nov. 2, 2000, 7:54 p.m. CST
I'm glad to see Stankonia get some due props on this talkback. It is easily the best album of the year..... along with radiohead's Kid A, in fact one poster agreed with me on that. Anyways, do yourselves a favour and buy this brilliant piece of musial art. It blew my mind track for track!!! And my Pazazz can agree to that! Jason X, I'll check it out if the reviews remain positive or even neutral. We just need a realy good NEW horror movie to hit the screens soon.Personally, I can't wait to see REQUIEM FOR A DREAM when it comes here to Ottawa. Aiight, I'm Out like Kast. Marq

Did you forget the Horrow Show from the mid-80s starring Brion James??? That's his 1st film as director, not counting his producing efforts.
Nov. 3, 2000, 2:15 a.m. CST
Will someone out there PLEASE take the horror film genre seriously again? I am so sick of the "tongue in cheek" ha ha horror movies, and seeing Dawson's Creek actors in fright films. Two words:Fuck SCREAM. Gee, how utterly brilliant to poke fun at the conventions, and stereotypes in horror instead of creating interesting new ones. How bold. How brave. Where the hell are the serious films with adults in them like THE EXORCIST or HELLRAISER? Remember when Freddy Krueger was scary(1st film), and you didn't laugh when PINHEAD, MICHAEL MYERS, JASON,LEATHER FACE etc showed up? Do any directors have the testicular fortitude, or imagination anymore to be able to make a serious horror film? The answer? Three words: Jason in space. Drat.
Nov. 3, 2000, 9:13 a.m. CST
Who asked you twat. Just because someone insults Jason you talk like that? You are a fucking moron. What are you trying to prove? Prove American superiority? I'm glad most Americans are not like you cos then you would have a HARD time proving that. BTW not a limey.
Nov. 3, 2000, 12:09 p.m. CST
It smells like bacon? How aboot "Shove it up your ass"! Just try to remember that Canada is a country with a tenth of the population of the U.S., and we make 1/1000th of the movies that play in the U.S. I guess no bad films have EVER come out of America now, have they? Now stop playing bully with an insecurity problem, America. Sure you're great. No need to shit on others to validify yourselves.
Nov. 3, 2000, 6:12 p.m. CST
dumbass, now i don't have to see the movie anymore or do i?

It's always cool to see a gore-fest that doesn't have illusions about what it really is. No moral messages here, just good-old chop 'em up fun is what is sounds like. Yay for bloody cheese!
Nov. 5, 2000, 9:31 p.m. CST
Long live Jason! Let he find more stupid yet inventive way to kill horny teens across the land! The king of comedy has returned, break out the hockey masks! More gore, less plot and even more funny! Friday the 13th was the funniest series of all-time! It is just good comedic fun and I'm happy that it's back! Yes, kill me a kid with a party favor cause the ultra wet looney from Crystal has come home!
