Title: Jason X Discussion
Post by: NancyThompson on June 14, 2008, 09:51:46 PM
Did not see a thread for Jason X so i made one.

I really did not like this movie. It really just was bad movie. I felt bad that Kane made this movie and that he was not in FVJ.


Now This movie did have some great deaths like the frozen head but still a bad movie IMO

Post by: Kat on June 15, 2008, 03:32:03 PM
Yeah, it had its moments. But again, another movie that didn't feel like Friday The 13th to me. And i thought that the mask was really odd.

The frozen head scene was probably the only good thing about this one.

I thought it cool that David Cronenberg was in it, reminded me of Nightbreed.  Other than that and the liquid nitrogen death this movie was a disappointment.  I wonder how many people died when the space station blew up?

I always wonder how many people die too when the space station blew up. It had to be probley like 50 or 100 people

Post by: Kat on June 19, 2008, 06:29:32 PM
well if people were flying all over space at this time, and they had all these stations around, and that one was huge, I'd guess roughly the same Nancy...if not more.

I don't recall, but was that like their 'school'? If so, maybe there were more.

it also looks like there was  a lot stupid errors, like when the dude gets killed by going through the drill he is spinning around but yet the drill doesn't appear to be moving.  I'll watch it again sometime today to be sure.

Post by: kingofzombies on June 22, 2008, 03:01:19 PM
Well, did anyone else notice that most of the cast was from the TV show Andromeda....?

I do think Kevin Sorbo vs. Jason would be a good movie lol

IMO this is the worst film of the series. None of the films are exactly high quality movie making, but this one just tops them all.....cheesy lines, cheesy acting, stupid storyline and I thought Uber Jason was just embarrassing. The only saving grace was the scene where Jason kills the girls in the sleeping bags - that part was great.

Thats because his body is sliding around the groves in the screw. Is not a mistake ;)

I agree. There were a lot of cheesy lines. But some of them I thought were great too, its just a shame they kept showing all the good ones in the trailers.

I love this one like I did all the others. Granted I prefer some sequels over this one and many, I still say this one ruled.

It was a neat idea, and I feel they did a great job on it. It was campy as far as humor, but it all worked for me.

Just didn't feel right, it was in space, so I didn't really like this movie, the only cool part for me is when they cut Jason's head open to take off the mask.

Jason reminded me more of Rambo in this movie than the slasher that he is in the previous installments. The way he just hides and hunts the soldiers seemed more tactical than any of the other movie.


Title: Re: Jason X Discussion
Post by: jimmyd on August 23, 2008, 09:20:15 AM
 IMO he is more "stealth" in this one....i think the only thing that keeps me watchin this movie... is the cute chicks.... and the threat(jasin).... exept till SUPERJASON... then things just get retarded.....


Title: Re: Jason X Discussion
Post by: Mr Boldman on August 24, 2008, 04:13:07 PM
I think of Jason X like the James Bond (i'm a Bond fan) film, Diamonds Are Forever. It's camp as christmas in tone, but if you're in the right mood, then it can be a fun watch. Likewise Jason Goes To Hell is the equivalent to Licence To Kill, in that it's more violent than the films brefore or since, and has a smaller group of folowers than other films in the series.

I can't necesarily say anything bad about this film seeing as it's the only one I've fully seen. Also why did the first chick die for? (The liquid nitrogen chick.) Also the sleeping bag scene is so catchy for me mainly due to the "We love premaritial sex!" Line. Also why did both of the black people die? I mean was there really a point in making them both sacrifice themselves for the greater good. Also am I the only one to love the Jason Voorhees pissed off stare in the first 5 or so minutes. Also they should have done more with uber-jason because uber jason did shit all.


Title: Re: Jason X Discussion
Post by: jimmyd on November 15, 2008, 02:36:15 PM
the 1st chikc died... cause jason kills.. everyone.... BUT.. i dunno if he would know about the liquid nitrogen.. and knowing her face would smash to itty bitty pieces..... but.. one of my fav scenes...i dunno if there was any meaning behind the black dudes "sacrificing" themselves.. but they did didnt they lol......the sleeping bag scene is classic.. love it....the whole 1st 5 min of jasonx is kool.. traveling through JV....and yes.. uber jason UBER SUCKED(i say that alot)

Horrible movie, just awful.  Jason Lives and Jason X are by far the worst sequels in the series. 

Both films have merit, but as Friday sequels they fail miserably.  New Line never treated Friday series with any kind of respect, not that Paramount did ... but New Line did the exact opposite of what they wanted to do.

Jason lives is far better than 5,8,JGTH and X-and is actually my fav of the undead/zombie Jasons

It's just personal preference.  For me, 1-4 are the gold standard.  I enjoy the other sequels but they never seemed to capture what made 1-4 so good, I chalk that up to the producers trying to interject new factors in the story to take it in different direction, breaking away from the formula.  The two New Line Jason films are just not as exciting to me, but then again they went in another direction to give the series new life.  Some like it, some do not. 

Don't get me wrong, the effects are outstanding but the stories are just not as interesting to me.  The entire Jason slug/possession thing is just not Friday the 13th to me.

made me jump so many times and UBER Jason ROCKS! i love how this one is set in the future and i love how it changes the formula but it still had it Friday the 13th moment with the sleeping bag scene!  over all i loved this one in a different way then the other 1,000 out of 100 BABY!  :jason10:

Yeah, Kane is the reason to watch the movie.........It was pretty cool to watch in theatres though, but it didn't have really good publicity.......The only commercial I saw for it was at like 1-2:00 in the morning-But I had to see that movie because the commercial was sooo cool (Jason stalking people while Drowning Pool's Bodies plays in the background)  Awsome-and the frist Jason movie I saw in theatres. Freddy vs. Jason was the second one (saw it a t the drive in)

I though Kane was little boring in JasonX but i do not blame him i blame the damn writers who come up with this fucked up movie. Its a shame that this was his Last movie and I think one reason he was not in FVJ was because Jason X did not do good at all when it come out. it like make like 12 mil its whole run or something like that

I agree.  I know a lot of fans love uber Jason but for me it just didn't work.  I didn't think he looked bad ass, I didn't think it took the character in a logic direction, and ultimately the film was made to keep Jason in the public eye without ruining any future Freddy vs Jason films (at least according to Cunningham).

According to 'Making Friday the 13' Jason X was thrown together to get Jason back on the screen, Cunningham allowed Jason X to jump to the future so that Jason vs Freddy could happen.  I always found that to be a lame excuse for poor writing and decisions in hindsight. 

Jason X is awful, I consider it the worst film in the series.  When you read the chapter dedicated to Jason X it's like reading about a train wreck, you can see it coming from a mile away.  They needlessly update Jason to impress people that wanted just plain old Jason, uberJason is the worst form of Jason in the series.  As you can tell I'm not a fan of this particular sequel and felt Cunningham made a huge mistake with this film.

Growing up I always thought it would be cool to see F13 reach a 13th film.  I still believe it would be great, but Jason X ruined that.  Now that the remake has come out, we will never "complete" the series.  LOL

yeah... it would have been nice to have a begiining and an "end" to the original series... they never could make up their damn mind!!.. first it was friday the 13th part 4: the final chapter.... then JGTH:the final friday..... now a reboot... if they plan on going past 13 films.... they are dumber than i thought... :)

 :jason7:

My most hated gripe over part ten, besides the stupid space gimmick or any of the other loads of crappy writing/directing is the LOOK of Jason himself.

I know he has never quite looked the same from one to another, but ten goes miles and miles out of their way to ruin what is such an iconic looking baddie.

Firstly, the HAIR. He's been bald but for a strand or two since part 3, and now all of a sudden he's got some hideous frizzy patchwork haircut going which looks awful. Secondly, his mask is designed wrong, in some bizarre fashion I can't quite explain. It looks off.

THIRDLY, one of the greatest things about the mask was that you barely ever (if ever) got a look at his eyes, and if so, barely. In this one, you get a perfectly healthy looking right eye peeking around the whole movie through. It makes him so much less spooky, visually. I like that his head is a lumpy bag of meat, but his eye and the skin around it, namely the eyelid, is perfectly healthy looking with no age marks or discolorations...


And finally, why are his clothes suddenly so nicely clean and pressed looking? Jason go to Wal-Mart and pick up some new duds before being caught at the start of the film? Hell, in the very sequel preceeding it, his clothes are torn to hell. Not as cool looking an outfit with bones and spine sticking out as in seven, but we can't always get what we want.


And don't EVEN get me started on the lame as crap UBER-JASON uniform. Shudder...

Haha, I like your screen name!

But I agree, his look was pretty bad. The mask was totally different, it had like "3D" to it, where some areas popped out more, and looked a little off. If I recall correctly I think it was off in color as well.

I guess they decided since he can regenerate that would explain why he looked so darn different :(


Title: Re: Jason X Discussion
Post by: SalsburySteakJr on April 06, 2009, 02:33:01 PM
I hate that regeneration garbage. Why hasn't he regenerated so noticeably in ANY of the previous films? And I'm not just talking about differences made on account of different designers, fx artists, and directors either...

And I just don't know why seeing his eye SO clearly irks me. It's so much more chilling dark and mysterious in my not so humble opinion.

Thanks on the name, I created it nearly a decade ago while penning a screenplay, with the character as a wild mixture of Bill the Butcher, Salvador Dali, myself at my bipolar worst (I've got a mixture of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, known as schizo-affective disorder), and some kind of crime lord priest who speaks 70% nonsense words that flow like morphine induced poetry. The name just vomited out. I've always found the best art flows like vomit from the mouth.

yea really.

You know i never watch all Leprechaun in Space so i do not know if its better or worst then Jason X but both movies sound lame as hell

Who want to watch horror movie take place in Space. Alien's yea but Jason or Leprechaun? Hell No

I am shock they have not seend Michael or Freddy to Space because Pinhead been to space too.

I just watched Jason X for the whatever hundreth time a few nights ago, and it plays off more like a spoof then an actual serious entry. There is nothing wrong with that though. There is room in a franchise with as many films as Friday has for some fun, I think. That is what Jason X was. It was pizza/beer/popcorn fun. It didn't take itself seriously and wasn't probably meant to be taken seriously.

I have read the original script by Todd Farmer and I know what it could have been, but in a way I am actually glad it wasn't. I like the film the way it is. Kane was abosolutely amazing in the role as usual. The frozen head smash is still my favorite kill in the entire series. That scene screams BAD ASS! Uber-Jason looks really cool too.

I think people who constantly bash this film are taking these films more seriously then they were ever intended to be taken. This entire wonderful series of films is meant for fun and entertainment, probably not meant to be taken all that seriously and Jason X is basically the flagship of that point.

Then we got Freddy vs. Jason which was another more fun film bringing Freddy into the mix, and then we got the series back to the more serious and scary tone that the first four films had.

JASONX  does seem to be more on the "fun" side....there's alot of real cheezy one-liners  "where's condor?"... "he's screwed".. haha.....but still has those moments of suspense....JGTH on the other hand.. is just  laughable....


Title: Re: Jason X Discussion
Post by: Rich on April 23, 2009, 01:42:45 AM
Jason Goes to Hell was certainly the most different of the series. I still liked it although it is probably the worst in the series. I think it is fun to just have a little bit of a different interpretation of a character whom is so familiar otherwise.

Plus the gore was outstanding! It was the best make-up work since Savini. Of couse KNB basically learning from Tom Savini on the set of Day of the Dead, I'm sure had something to do with that. The sexy scene in the tent is very entertaining (for us males). And I enjoy the characters. C. Duke is a great character. I think Steven is a very good character too, not to mention that big fat dirty mouthed woman in the diner.

[while trying to hit Jason in the back] "Get off of him you mother fucking cock sucker mother fucker!" [BAM...hit in the face and got her teeth knocked down her throat]

That was great stuff!

This movie SUCKED! The acting sucked, the plot sucked, and it was mainly boring. But this is what I did like about it.

. The kills.
. Kane Hodder as Jason

But these two things didn't save the movie. The cyborg lady they tried to make us think she was cool or something, and failed miserably. I am usually a very nice, and kind person, and usually don't think this way, but when I saw this movie, I was like, ''When are they gonna all die?!'' I never do that. But this beats the cake. I'm glad they rebooted FT13.

MY RATING: 3.5/10, and that's pushing it.

The thing that really sucked though was the acting. But let's face it these movies are not made to be award winners, they're just made to be fun and this movie was a lot of fun!

i had Jason X on in the background last night , while i was strumming my guitar ....
i can't believe how BAD it is !!! sorry for the blasphemy , on a F13th website , but man , this movie sucked overall !!
a couple of neat scenes , but the tone/feel of the movie was unlike what a 'Jason' experience should be !!  IMO

i've come to believe that the makers of a true F13 movie , should approach them the way AC/DC make their albums ...
that is , stick to what the fans love ! even if you're rehashing the same thing 20 times , this is what the true fans want !!
don't deviate , don't go mainstream , don't overuse technology ...

stick to the basics , and leave it primal, gutteral , and SCARY .
this is what put you 'on the map' , and this is what we'll keep paying to see .........

I think the worst part for me is the horrible set designs. Man they look bad.

The acting wasn't much different then any other Friday the 13th. The plot was just as basic as any other Friday the 13th. Actually, I didn't mind the plot. I thought it made sense. It was a plausable way to bring Jason in outer space. They did it more pluasable then Leprechaun 4.

Jason X is the kind of movie that you ONLY watch for kills and the Jason character. You can't judge it with acting and plot and all that other criteria because it isn't made for that. It's made for a different purpose.

I didn't find this movie boring in the least bit. I found it very enjoyable.


Title: Re: Jason X Discussion
Post by: FvJsucked79 on April 21, 2010, 01:25:46 PM

I watched this again last night and what's really strange about JX is the movie's off the wall tone. It's all over the map.

For example, the movie starts off pretty serious with Jason killing the army guys and then being frozen by Rowan. But when the future stuff kicks in the movie starts to get a little weird and campy. The nipple twisting scene comes to mind. Then you have the dead serious cargo bay scene, which really drags now looking back on it. I was getting sleepy during that scene. And the rest of the movie is a mixture of the two tones combined.

JX is just one fucking weird movie that can't decide what it wants to be. And I think that's why I enjoy it, but it's definitely a flawed film. And I can understand why a lot of people hate it.

An odd film indeed.


Title: Re: Jason X Discussion
Post by: Rich on April 22, 2010, 11:22:55 AM
I think it was pretty clear that the movie didn't take itself seriously and they meant to not. When Tod wrote the script, he wrote a serious and dark script, which I read. Then when the Cunninghams and Isaac got their hands on it, they decided to not take it as serious as Todd did. For better or worse it became a more self parody. I find it rather enjoyable. I mean face it, we watch Friday the 13th movie for Jason, kills, and naked women. Who the hell really watches them for acting range?

You don't judge a mini van for not being able to keep up with a jaguar on a race track. Why? Because it was not meant for that purpose. The same thing goes for film. You can't judge A Friday the 13th movie for bad acting or the lack of a thick plot, because it was not made for that purpose. You must first understand the purpose for a particular movie being made. They decide whether or not it fullfilled it's purpose.

Post by: Ghost on April 22, 2010, 04:05:09 PM
i disagree with you both. i am not looking for award winning shit but i would love somebody that does not act like a robot or a total idiot. friday the 13th is way more then just women and death. sure jason is a big part. he is like 30% then their is atmosphere which is 20% then characters which is 15% and kills are another 20% and the last 15 percent is a mix of music and acting. why is nudity not on their is because it has no place. the only movies you should rate on the terms of nudity is if the movie is porn or their is no flare to the story that it needs some spiceing up. in my reviews i don't even think of nudity for the final rating but i do rate how good the scenes are in which is nudity. also i think acting is very important. if someone sucks really really bad, even if the rest of the movie is awesome, you feel the stain that is that one actor. but this is all IMO. when i see a movie i try not to do this but admittedly i do, i judge the movie on its negative qualities first then positive.

.... i like how the early entries  were dark and serious.. they had their brief funny moments(which helped people connect with the characters and film in general).. but the vibe of the films were scary....even pt 6.. though it was more comedic than the other paramount films..when the sun went down.. shit got spooky....


JasonX however just felt like a silly cheeze ride...even if it was a self parody.. it was a weak film IMO....the writing wasnt too good(filled with one liners and sarcasm)... nor was the acting ( personally i thought the acting in the paramount films.. although wasnt the best.. the characters had depth, charisma, and portrayed their  characters well)... sure i like tits and gore... but i actually like the STORY of the paramount films.. JV wandering from place to place... the tommy jarvis trilogy...and.. taking place on or around CCL... the JasonX story.. was too out there.. even for a JV film.....if it went more for like an 'Alien' vibe..  it would have been alot better..... but thats just my thoughts...

I get you with the dark and serious thing. As far as the writing, most of the one liners were added after Todd wrote the script, by the Cunninghams. As far as the storyline, I don't see any of the other as being any more in deth with characters or plot when Jason X with the exeption of Mrs. Voorhees, Tommy Jarvis, Tina, and Duke.

As far as your Alien vibe comment, I wish it did go for a more Alien vibe. It would have been a better movie.

Post by: jimmyd on April 25, 2010, 02:31:08 AM
Mostly in the first 4 films we got to know and enjoy the cast..in jasonX(for me) just kinda skipped over drawing us in with character depth(which I'm kinda a stickler for) and went the more shallow/comical route... The musical score was laughable(mostly when Kay-em is blowing JV to bits)... And from when UBER jason appears..to when the credits roll..is just silliness...but I do actually enjoy this film from time to time..JV is brutal yet stealth at the same time..and I really enjoy traveling through JVs body during the opening credits..and of course..the infamous frozen face smash :).... I guess this film(and JGTH) is one of the JV flicks I watch purely for the kills..the tits...and hot chicks wearing slutty futuristic clothes lol

I went with my dad to see this one when it came out.  I loved it. But, back then I hadn't seen all of the other films I saw 1, 2(tv cut), 3, 5, 8, and maybe 7 &/or 6....and now that I have them all (in duplicate lol) I can say that yes it was a weak entry, but it was as mentioned earlier not made to be an extremely serious film. It had some pretty cool effects, and, of course, Kane Hodder was Jason. But it was mostly just filmed to make a little more money before FVJ was announced. It was a great experience because it delivered what the fans wanted......to see Jason Voorhees, who had been away from us for nearly a decade, Slaughter naughty teenagers (in space? lol). The movie was just made for an appetizer to a better film IMO. But let me tell you-I will never forget the first (and only) time I ever saw the trailer to Jason X. I was at my cousins house and it was really late at night. I saw Uber Jason, and heard "Bodies" by Drowning Pool. I was stoked! The movie didn't disappoint me.
But then again, I was like 9-10 years old.

The point is that I don't care what crap they throw at us, we (as horror fans) are junkies who will do anything for a quick fix. Even if the idea is kinda lame.

If they make it.....We will watch.

I guess with the direction the 2009 Friday the 13th movie took, we'll never see how Jason was captured in the first place. That's a shame, I think the franchise deserved a movie to fill in the gaps between the end of Freddy vs. Jason and the beginning of Jason X. I'm sure something pretty decent could have been hammered out from a plot perspective. Maybe Creighton Duke's son could have tracked him down on behalf of the U.S. Government or something.  ;)

In any case, I actually don't mind Jason X. A campy, fun little movie. It went out of it's way to give the franchise a different feel and I can't knock anybody for that decision, especially after seeing the ANOES remake, which came off as boring simply because it brought absolutely nothing new to it's franchise.

I also liked Uber-Jason. He looked pretty badass to me. If you're going to put Jason Voorhees in space, you might as well go the full nine yards and give him a sci-fi look to match the setting. That hulking, metallic body looked pretty intimidating and awesome. He looks like something out of a Terminator film.

You know what Shifty? I totally agree with everything u just said, especially the Terminator part of it, I felt the same way when I saw Uber Jason, and I was like Hell Yeah!! That was really bad ass right there, and I also like how they tried to go in a different direction. There's 2 things that I didn't really care for in the movie though and that was the score and some of the acting, but then again, the acting doesn't bother me too much, cuz it's not the first time a Jason flick has bad actors in it... But the musical score could've been way better though... Kane was awesome as Jason though, if they ever do make another Jason movie, I hope they bring back Kane! I liked Derek Mears as Jason too, but my all time favorite Jason's are Kane and CJ!

I find this movie to be thoroughly enjoyable.  It's the same formula we've grown accustomed to over the years, dropped into a new locale.

I never understood people who loved the old Paramount films but hated Jason X. It's got Kane Hodder killing off a group of annoying young people. That IS Friday the 13th. I guess it's the space thing that throws people off, and I understand that, but it never bothered me. Jason X is one of my more favorite entries into the series.

Uber Jason came off kind of anti-climatic since they showed it in the previews and the poster. Like Todd Farmer said they should've held off on that until the movie was released, but being that it was delayed for so long I guess that was the only marketing ploy Newline had at the time.

you're probably right about that ? but IMO , if you have to play your best hand as a last ditch ploy ...chances are , your movie stinks !?

Yeah, totally agreed there. I always hated that they took away half of the reason people were coming to see that movie in the first place and replaced him with a jobber. My worst fear of all though was thankfully unfounded. I was afraid that when they replaced Kane Hodder, who had been sharing top billing with Robert Englund, that they were going to put Kelly Rowland on top of the poster.

Only other time I've seen that was for the remake. They actually let people stand, which I am pretty sure they aren't supposed to do but it was awesome...the whole theater became friends, it was kind of weird - but very cool. There were people who saw it before us telling the new people coming in about how awesome it was then our group did the same, lol.

Yeah, Kane holding onto the role would be an absolute must. I don't really think the idea is all that cheesy or silly, I think it just sort of kicked Jason up a notch, and I really think the idea could be explored more deeply and could be used for a couple more good movies.

See, I'm guessing you made the classic mistake a lot of people made. You went into it expecting a Friday the 13th film, not yet understanding that New Line doesn't do Friday the 13th films, they do "Jason films." A different thing altogether. But, as far as a first movie goes, glad it was Jason for you.

I popped this in a few weekends ago and watched it with my good friend Soul_of_Voorhees (a handful of you probably remember when he posted here waaaaaaayyyy back when). I have to say, I think the novelty of Jason being in space has worn off for me at this point. It still has a few things going for it - creative-ish deaths (girl gets sucked through grate into space, liquid nitrogen face smash, etc.), one of the neatest Jason "deaths" IMO (ridden to planet re-entry death by stereotypical black hero), and an interesting twist to the Jason Voorhees look with the Uber-Jason reconstruction.

Despite these little perks, I still found the movie rather boring. I can pop parts II-VII in and enjoy the hell out of them, one way or another. Jason X just seems to miss that certain F13th "It" factor. It's a bit too self-referential and openly campy at times, which always misses the boat with me. It's not particularly scary or tense either. And somehow, I'm still peeved that we're not given the events leading up to Jason's capture (unless they've been revealed in some novel or comic book). Ironically enough, for a movie that's banking on the "Jason in Space" concept to carry it, one of the most entertaining parts of the entire movie is the scene where he's tricked into believing he's back at Crystal Lake.

At this point, Jason X has slid to the bottom of my list of F13th movies, hovering somewhere between Friday the 13th (reboot/remake/re-who-cares) and Part VIII.

You know it's funny because some of the Jason X novels would make decent movies if done correctly. Maybe one of those couuld be used but then again you would have to use the one right after the JX movie novel since the novels in the series follow each other basically. Idk. Just a thought for a sequel if it ever happened. I also have the F13th comics and they had a Jason vs Jason X (aka Ubber Jason) and that was pretty cool, so that's an idea too. 8)

The whole idea of Jason being in space, someone should be shot for that. Completely retarded and since everyone knew that it added to the box office failure. Mixing that with the fact that Jason was stuck in a new planet absolutely killed any chance of a sequel. For this reason more than any other, the movie never should have been made.

This was the first Friday film where I followed the development of it before it was released (starting back when it was still called Jason 2000), so I was pretty disappointed with what we got. I have only seen the whole movie two or three times and it is definitely my least favorite of the series.

Wanna know what happened during the marathon? I had one Four Loko for every movie up until Jason X. I tried to power through Jason X and that movie sucked so bad and pissed me off so much that I went to bed after this movie at like 3 a.m. (I started my marathon at about 10:30 a.m.). Anyway, fuck this movie. Fuck this movie for all the reasons listed above. Fuck this movie for ruining my marathon. I don't think I could hate this movie any more than I did after watching it during this marathon. Ugh. I think I'll skip it next time and just watch the remake instead. Maybe I'll skip Jason Goes to Hell too since it's not technically Friday the 13th. Maybe I should just watch Friday the 13ths with Friday the 13th in the title lol.

I did watch Freddy vs. Jason in the remake when I woke up from my drunken chaos...sooooo I kind of got through the marathon.

That is quite similar to my experience. Except I was drinking beer instead of Four Loko and I did not just have one per movie (as it was just beer). Dozed off midway through part 8, completely missed JGTH and X and was back up for F v. J. Somehow I did not feel like I missed a damn thing. I guess it's better to focus on what is important. I hope you did not actually carry out your threat of cutting your dick off. Remember, you said you would rather do that than watch one of the two more craptacular movies of the series (can't remember which one exactly). Maybe slightly less painful than watching though.....?

I realize this is forever late, but no, didn't chop anything off. It will never be included in a Friday the 13th marathon again. I can simply say this...it's not a Friday the 13th movie. It's a Jason movie...and a shitty one at that.

I don't particularly care for Jason Goes to Hell either, but it had more redeeming qualities:

1. Creighton Duke-he kicked ass
2. The look of Kane Hodder/Jason-he wasn't in it long, but he looked cool
3. The fucking kill with the pole in the sleeping bag...and the sex scene
4. Freddy's Glove cameo-Freddy's first appearance in a Jason movie
5. Any of the disgusting melting scenes


Jason X was a poor attempt at a sci fi comedy. I enjoyed the face crush in the ice, the sleeping bag throwback, and the look of Uber Jason, but that is IT. The movie angers me to watch while the look of Jason pre-Uber Jason is just horrible. It's pretty sad when the mask isn't even right in a Friday the 13th/Jason movie.

This was the first Jason movie I ever saw in a theatre so I have a soft spot for it. I hope someday I can see more of the original Friday The 13ths in theatres esp Pt 4. That one would be a total treat to watch on the big screen.

I always laugh more than anything with Jason X but that's one reason I love it. My favorite scene is the holographic Crystal Lake. Just makes me laugh everytime and Kane Hodder as Jason is amazing like always.

I agree with u Punisher. Kane really took steps to make sure Jason was taken seriously. He conveyed a lot of emotiom and rage with his eyes and that's really hard to do when u don't see the rest of his face. The way he walked scared the bejeebus out of me too. Guarantee u I would take steps not to get in his way.

Nope what happened?
He was filming a night scene with the Jason outfit on, and he had to walk a quarter mile back to his trailer after shooting the night scene wearing his Jason clothes.  Some guy met him on the trail, and asked him if he was working on the movie.  Kane thought it was the dumbest question he ever heard, and didn't answer.  When asked again, he growled at the guy, who ran for miles.  The next day, the director told Kane the cops were gonna come out and ask him about the guy on the trail, but they never showed.  That's the version I heard.

I also loved the story of how Ted White scared people on Pt 4. Some people drove up to him and asked what he was doing or something like that. He stuck his head through the open car window while in full costume. Scared the heck out of them, saying he couldn't repeat what they said! I laughed so hard my stomach ached!

We watch the same movie? Pilot's death was offscreen. They just showed us some drops of the blood which have scattered on the display. And other deaths... My God! Some guy killed by electricity (they at least could blow up his head, ala Halloween 6, but noooo...), someone has broke a neck, someone knocked on the head... Without any fucking blood.

When was the last time you watched it , Stan ?
Just curious , because i've said on this site before that i hated Jason X . Then i saw it a few more times and it grew on me from an entertainment standpoint .

The older (and better IMO) films also have deaths that happen offscreen . This includes my #1 fav - pt2 .

I liked Ken when i first saw the movie . It may have been just out of hype and the long wait to see the film though . Looking back now i find his portrayal to be very stiff and forced in a way .

Kane did a great job as the zombie version of the character for those few movies .

i had Jason X on in the background last night , while i was strumming my guitar ....
i can't believe how BAD it is !!! sorry for the blasphemy , on a F13th website , but man , this movie sucked overall !!
a couple of neat scenes , but the tone/feel of the movie was unlike what a 'Jason' experience should be !!  IMO

i've come to believe that the makers of a true F13 movie , should approach them the way AC/DC make their albums ...
that is , stick to what the fans love ! even if you're rehashing the same thing 20 times , this is what the true fans want !!
don't deviate , don't go mainstream , don't overuse technology ...

stick to the basics , and leave it primal, gutteral , and SCARY .
this is what put you 'on the map' , and this is what we'll keep paying to see .........

I never heard about Kelly Rowland being stubborn about her death. Only time I heard anyone being like that was supposedly Katharine Isabelle talking smack about the movie. Robert Englund only had nice things to say about her so I think she was trying to make a joke but it got taken out of context by magazines. She seems very nice anyway.

You would just think they wouldn't want to rip off alien but they had no problem with that at all, not to mention Hellraiser and leprachaun went into space years before and most people hate those installments. I will say this though it made sense in the hellraiser movie to be in space even anyone has seen it will know this.


Title: Re: Jason X Discussion
Post by: Rich on April 23, 2013, 12:42:37 PM
Jason Voorhees is a very comic book friendly type character to begin with. Just because Leprechaun and Pinhead went to space years before they did it with Jason, does not mean that Jason X was a direct rip off of those films. Jason X was just an attempt to make a new Jason movie that was cool, looked slicker, had a little more blood then the MPAA allowed them to have in the 80s, had some action, and a kick ass Jason.

I'm probably in the minority but I get such a kick out of "Jason X," it's a total hoot... and it's certainly a hell of a lot better than the preceding "Jason Goes to Hell."

I find it works better if you treat it as an affectionate parody of the F13 movies, rather than a legitimate entry in the series.

I'm surprised you didn't think the same for The Final Friday. I would certainly consider that a parody, especially with them selling hockey mask shaped burgers at the local diner, and Jason fingers. ;D

Well, yea, that was sorta funny.  ;D

"Final Friday" just seemed like it was trying too hard. Between shoe horning in all of the back story and family history for Jason, the bounty hunter, Jason jumping from body to body for the whole movie, etc., etc. they had enough going on for six films. It was a mess.

Jason X, meanwhile, seems like they simply threw up their hands and said "fuck it, let's just go completely NUTS, it'll be fun."

Jason X is a complete hoot I would agree. its got lots of fun stuff from start to finish. The Jason look is pretty awful before the "upgrade" but whatever for me that's Kane killing the series even more.
Is best as a stand alone or say else-world story.

For me JGTH is such a mess that even trying to place it as a stand alone just doesn't help I like to think of it as not existing, then it works!!! It pains me when I watch it thankfully that's not often.

Strange, The Final Friday never felt like a mess to me. I haven't watched Jason X yet, but for now I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. Just as long as they kept it right I won't mind it being on a spaceship. Hopefully it will be a more interesting setting than a boat. :jasonx:

Jason Goes to Hell really was not a mess. Though it did have some things in it that seemed to contradict what was said in the original film, like Jason having a sister.

But overall, as a horror film, and even as a film based on the Friday the 13th franchise, it offered a unique plot to the series.

Jason X was every other Friday the 13th film, but just in a different setting. I enjoy it. It has my all time favorite kill!

JX was the first movie I remember seeing in the theatre from this series. I never had a problem with this one or any of them but I did enjoy X more than JGTH. JGTH was a cool movie but I had more fun watching this movie and I loved the holographic Camp Crystal Lake. I got why they set it so into the future but I wish they had gotten the chance to do a sequel.

The best part about this movie was I got it on DVD the day before Halloween the yr the DVD hit shelves. I actually got to watch it the next day and had a blast. The only sad thing is we lost Jim Isaac and I really thought he did a good job u know? They actually had Jason X novels that followed up the movie and I don't know but do they still write them?

In HD, you can REALLY see the fakeness in the robot boob scene. It is kind of funny. At least the pre-marital sex scene makes up for it.

The frozen head smash was definitely my favorite kill of the entire franchise. Kane's performance was awesome. I really liked this movie. It was the same as the rest of them, just in a different place.

Jason X is a fun movie . There's a lot of neat stuff in it . The production looks so bad assed , and they came up with some creative kills .

I like the eye candy factor too . The little vixen with the booze and nipple clamps could be my sex kitten anytime ! And yes , she'd pass with flying colors :)

Lexa (?) is also one of the hottest F13th females ever . IMO of course !

They should have made it dark, stuck to a creepy score, cut out the jokes, scrapped the robot chick and set it in the medical facility rather than in Space. Cause tbh Space added nothing that they couldn't have done on the facility.

No disrespect , but this is WHY the later movies lacked quite a lot . And in particular , why JGTH blew chunks ... F13th and Jason Voorhees were never meant to be "the laughing stock of the franchise" .

It started out as horror and terror . It grew into a joke . The 2009 film recaptured the true feel and essence . We'll have to wait and see what happens next ...

not disrespected lol we all have our own views. I think JGTH was more or less just ment to be gross out fun, were as jason X, was that times ten. I agree they turned into a joke. the remake captured the first four vibes, but it took me a few views to really appreciate it. I didnt like some of the actors.

Ill take any shitty friday the 13th/jason movie, over not having any made at all. I think its easy to criticize a new entry in the series but i look at it like, we just be fortune hollywood allows these to continue. They dont pump them out like in the 80s anymore. Gotta take what we are given and appreciate it for what it was. Jason X i got to see in theaters too So i liked that factor.

Ive gotten alot of shit for saying this, but if big budget hollywood is sick of making the friday the 13th movies, lets do direct to dvds. You can make more movies, and expand the storyline, bring back old characters, keep a fresh flow of f13ths being released. I dont ever see that happening, and im still shocked the TV show is a go.

Lets agree to agree. I have found only Part 8 to be a disappointment, and I'll be happy with more movies coming out in the future. With Paramount hanging onto both Jason and the title for the next four years you can't expect anything short of quality films (in a certain sense), but the series will eventually run dry. Unless there comes an age of re-remakes, but lets not go there.

I think we are all on the same page , and I apologize if I came across as seeming anything else . Even the so-called bad F13th films are still a treat to watch . And ... I will still choose any entry from the franchise over most other current listings at the cinema .

I fully expect there to be more entries to the Jason saga , and i will be the first in line :)

I think done right, it could be accomplished, but i really dont see them pumping that many out anymore.  Remake was in 2009, before that fvj 2003, jason x, 2001 (filmed in 1999 i believe) then JGTH 1993.  Theres big gaps now.  Its been 5 years, and there hasnt even really been any breaking news about the new one, they have a deadline for next march, but they'd have to be knee deep in filming by now, and theres still no word.

They do have a deadline for next march as you have stated. It does not take very long to make a Friday the 13th film. It can still be done. They know a lot more than we do at this point in time. There is probably a lot going on with the film right now that they are shielding from the internet for the time being.

Jason will never truly go away. Sure, we will never get another ten year span of eight back to back films, but ever decade he will probably pop up with a film or two. I do not see him ever really going away.

The original script was suppose to have the vibe of the alien movies with jason. It wasn't suppose to be comical like it is. Sean Cunningham ruined this movie by interfering with the script, the cast, and the score.  It was on his funding, so he felt like he could do whatever he wants.

It's not a bad movie if you just wanna have some fun, laugh at riddiculous things and get relaxed. But it is bad if you think of it as a part of a huge series. I can't say that F13 movies are movie award films, but even they have, or had, standards. This one just went way overboard and laughed at these 'standards'. I'm glad that Jason X is in the past now and that they're still making new ones.

This is definitely one of my biggest guilty pleasure of the series. It's just a lot of fun, and if people take it seriously then well...they should probably watch a weepy Lifetime drama or something. It's in my bottom five or so, but it's really entertaining, has some creative kills (and one of the highest bodycounts), great pacing, a few likeable (or at least fun to watch) characters, and I've always been a fan of how bright and colorful the whole thing was. It's not amazing by any means but I definitely prefer it to a couple of the others.

Amen to that! I love it when people say this film is 'bottom of the barrel material' yet they praise the likes of SyFy flicks and refer to them as 'great guilty pleasures.' Uh hello? That's what this is. It didn't take itself too seriously (if it had, it would've REALLY fallen flat) and delivered everything one would expect; kills, fast pace, fun characters, creativity, etc.

Actually one of my beefs with Jason X is precisely the fact that it feels like one of those stupid SyFy Channel originals. Not a fan. So I'm pretty consistent in my distastes.  :P

I guess, for me, it's yet another of the entries that departs TOO far from what I want out of a Friday The 13th movie. That's fine for some (you). But not for others (me).

In the case of both JGTH and JX, the filmmakers seemed to be purposefully trying to avoid making a Friday The 13th movie. If you wanna try something new, that's fine. In my opinion, a movie like Part 7 tried something new and succeeded. That movie added the telekinetic thing and had its own vibe BUT it was still also a classic style Friday The 13th film. Ya know what I mean? It added something new without sacrificing the elements that traditional fans want.

I can forgive JGTH to a point. If I just force myself to forget that I'm watching a Jason movie and pretend it's just a stand alone horror movie, I can enjoy it. But Jason X doesn't even work as a good horror movie. So what am I left with? A SyFy Channel type movie? No thank you.

My friend Melanie went and saw it and we had a blast! She was teasing me asking if I knew the two girls in the sleeping bag scene lol! She's like hey Brendan have u met them yet? I'm laughing right now thinking about it. I love the movie though and always love to kick back and have a good time watching it. It was the first Jason movie I ever saw in theaters and I love being able to say that too. I can't make fun of this movie and wouldn't want to since I waited SOOOOOOOOOOO long to watch it. I was very satisfied with the finished product and would love to see a sequel to it sometime. It can be a comic book sequel. I've read the sequels they did in novelization form and those r good too.

I can forgive JGTH to a point. If I just force myself to forget that I'm watching a Jason movie and pretend it's just a stand alone horror movie, I can enjoy it. But Jason X doesn't even work as a good horror movie. So what am I left with? A SyFy Channel type movie? No thank you.

That entire statement. Sums it up for me, I think.

Mostly though, I hated the upgraded Jason. I hated the spaceship location. I hated his fight with Kay Em. I hated the space tackle. I hated.... well you get the idea.

I saw it again this morning and i have to tell you that, for me, it is a good entry overall, much better than 8 and way better than 9. I still prefer a classic f13 in the camp but the idea for just one film seems right to me. It is like a what if in the future, out of the regular continuum.

It is campy, with stupid characters and stupid jokes, but, no more than other films in the franchise. I like the idea of someone finally try to do something about Jason and his immortality thing and i love uber Jason. I understand that for many people it is stupid, but, come on!, in a film like this it is pretty awesome, and it is a one time thing, so enjoy it.

The plot is more consistent than other films in the franchise and there are no big mistakes about the mythology like in other films like 8 or 9.

Except that "one film" put the final nail in the franchise's coffin. Nowhere to go after Jason X but "reboot."

At one point they did say they wanted to do a sequel to Jason X. I would've watched. The books released after JX as a continuation were pretty good.

The books were actually good. They expanded upon the idea of Jason being in the future and really went into new directions.

There were also books based on the Friday The 13th and Elm Street franchises too I think released by Black Flame. Someone told me the reason more books weren't released is because Black Flame shut down. I did hear though they are talking to other publishers to get more made. I hope so because I love those franchises. If I remember correctly, they also did books based on Texas Chainsaw Massacre as well.

I hope if we do get some books that maybe they do books that maybe take place in between the first and second movies. I could see them explaining some stuff and maybe even some short stories?

I do think though that if anything hurt Jason X it was the delay. Not only did it make it sit on the shelf for awhile but then didn't it get pirated too? Just sad to see it go through so many obstacles and lose out in the end. I waited so long for the movie and really enjoyed and still enjoy it.

However, I would have loved to have seen how it would have fared on the original planned release. It was just an uphill battle for JX the whole way. It gets made then its biggest fan quits with DeLuca I think his name was. After that it gets given a TON of different release dates and even has Jennifer Lopez's Angel Eyes movie follow it on two separate occasions to the same release date. Then it gets put in limbo again until FINALLY a release date is announced. Unfortunately it's around the same time as The Scorpion King and Spider-Man which both went crazy at the box office and it got lost in the shuffle.

Then people start popping up right before it comes out saying oh someone showed me the movie is on the Internet. Could u imagine if this has happened with the original where the Internet had been around and it got put up on there? Good lord that could've and maybe would've killed any and all momentum for that one just like Jason X.

 It just feels like this movie had everything and anything thrown in its path to make sure it failed. Really sad too because I enjoy it a lot. It doesn't take itself too seriously, great kills and gore made it fun, the characters like Kay-Em were enjoyable. This and The Final Chapter r my two favorites to watch along with F Vs J and the original.

Yes someone at new line was fired around the time it was completed and the studio didn't really know what to do with it at the time. So it was shelved for a while. Yes it was leaked I remember someone gave me a copy of it and i was so disappointed even if i hadn't seen it when i went to the theaters to see it i felt the same way. The theater was so empty and the people that were there got up and left half way. I don't think it being shelved caused it to fail. The WHOLE idea of jason in space turned everyone off especially casual fans who aren't die hards.

The idea of space has failed with a few other franchises. The fact that this idea was ok with noel and sean has made me question their authenticity with controlling the franchise. Especially sean who changed the music to the movie and made last minute changes to the script. It was supposed to have a scary vibe to it (like alien) and it turned into a cartoony laughable film that while the idea was to poke fun of itself. It did it the entire movie and you can sense no one took the material serious. There are some things i liked about the movie meaning specific kills. But the entire movie in general was a waste of time and money all around. New line was embarrassed that they even had this movie on their hands and I don't blame them one bit. While i watch it from time to time its my least favorite in the series. Sean cunningham has made some disastrous decisions with the franchise. and although i am a MASSIVE JGTH fan he has no respect for the series or continunity. He hated the idea of jason being alive in the later sequels. That was victor miller and tom savini's idea.  Sean needs to step back and stop interfering with people who tend to care more about the series then he does. Jim Issac couldn't stand the guy because he practically butchered his movie. I can't stand the guy either.

I bet if you cornered them, they'd admit to hating the franchise. They're just using it as a cash cow. They have NO CLUE what to do and they hire writers who have no clue either.

I think the problem with any franchised character is you eventually run out of plot ideas for a general audience. Sure, for those of us who love Jason, we can read the books and the story can go on indefinitely. But I think horror movies have a faddish quality to them. Audiences show up when they want entertainment and don't have that critical hand hovering too close to the buzzer to condemn these movies for doing what they're suppose to do which is entertain with a quality reflective in this genre.

But I think there is plenty of potential left in this franchise. If you look at all of the horror reboots, FVJ and the last Friday the 13th rank the highest in gross. So audiences definitely want Jason back. Freddy Krueger is a harder sell now because of the real life tragedies impacting children. So his origins play to an audience with different sensibilities today versus what they were in the 80's. Jason has a timeless appeal. When people want some great kills and OTT adventure, this character is a solid bet. That is why I think the direction of this next film looks to be a sure fire smash hit. But I digress...

Jason X was a product of it's time. The studio had bought the license with the intentions of keeping it profitable and moving forward. But too often people who have creative control believe in moving away from the source material in order to keep them "fresh" and hit a new target audience. Unfortunately they find out, the only audience that counts is the one that has always been there, which is their base. Some tough lessons but in the end a series that has a rich history we can all reflect on today.

surprisingly those books are super rare and very expensive. Highly sought with the hardcore fans.

Anyone see Pandorum (2009)?
A Jason in space movie with that tone & intensity, now THAT would have been something to fucking see man. And I say that as someone who does like the film in it's current state.

Well Jason X could have done that too, if its budget was 30 odd million instead of only 11 million.

Doesn't really have anything to do with the budget.
I'm talking less comedic moments & have the cast play things more straight & dire.
Play up the isolation of the ship being disabled in space.
Have mecha Jason be a little closer to the concept art & more grusome.

Eh I don't mind some comedy in my F13 movies.  That is why F13 pt6 is my fave of the movies.  And why I love X too.   :jasonx:  :jason10:
