Overall it had a great feel to it. I am very disappointed at the ending though. I thought it built up nicely then just cut short. The acting for the most part was bearable but I do think Jared Padalecki was very good. Much better then a Jason Ritter or any other actor from part 6 forward.

I do however tip my hat to Derek Mears! GREAT JASON! He shits on Kane Hodder, CJ Graham, and Kirzinger. But I still love White and Brooker a lot more.  Ehh, Im still soaking it in. But on a scale of 1-10 Im going to have to give this one a 7.5. No where near Part 3 or TFC.

Still, much worse than that Halloween remake is not possible, and I was right. If I had to recommend either the Halloween remake, or this remake, I'd take this one.


Title: Re: Friday The 13th (2009) Discussion
Post by: Kat on February 13, 2009, 07:33:21 PM
I personally don't consider it a remake, could have totally been a sequel that fits in with the earlier movies. Say he lost his mask and went back to a sackish type of thing, then found another mask lol. But yea it had its ups and downs. I went in with low expectations, and tried to stay away from everything to do with the film.

Sadly, they used most of the good scenes in every trailer they had....and it didn't help that SO many people were LAUGHING during the entire movie...and talking away. Plus...like 10 people got up and left throughout it.

The opening was pretty cool too, except I don't think I really liked Mrs. Voorhees, and it almost sounded like she couldn't act...oh well...moving on...

What happened to the GORE? I thought this was going to be all gory and stuff? My Bloody Valentine was MUCH better in the gore department...I think that was the one thing I was very disappointed with.

The ending...I didn't see much of a problem with it, but there could have been more...and the line there:

Spoiler (hover to show)

Derek Mears played a good Jason. I really liked how fast he was. But I got too much of a vibe of him being a hunter...and I know we were supposed to get that vibe, but I'm not sure I cared much for it.

Now, what did I think was really lame? Well, I didn't get to know any of the characters or really care for them other then Clay...and...well see there is a bad sign that I cannot remember anyone's name...the black dude. I liked him a lot. The "asshole" character I couldn't stand lol.

Spoiler (hover to show)

Another MAJOR issue I had, was everything (the kills/chase scenes) were WAY too fast and shakey and close up that you could barely make anything out.

I'm sure I could pick it apart more if I saw it again LOL. But, I didn't find it scary, and I don't think anyone else did, other then one girl who screamed in the beginning lol.

But really, I didn't think it was that bad, some of the writing was bad, but I liked how some parts that were supposed to be funny WERE actually funny.

I really don't know what to rate this, but...first impression rating would probably be...hummm...

3.5/5?...but it will most likely change when I see it again.

Post by: GuyOfOwnage on February 14, 2009, 12:04:17 AM
Alright, the spoiler tag has been acting up on me, so I'm just going to post my opinion, spoilers and I. I'd suggest turning back if you haven't seen the movie.

I quite enjoyed it. Though I must say, I think that was the longest opening credits sequence for a Friday movie since Part 2...

The characters were classic Friday the 13th stereotypes, updated for the 21st century, and worked quite well.

I felt the re-enactment of Pamela's death was a bit weak, but because that wasn't the main focus of the movie, I'm not going to complain.

Some pretty original kills (sleeping bag over the camp fire, for example) for a Jason movie. I also loved some of the nods to the old films (the character throwing back the shower curtain before being killed, Jason breaking through the window and grabbing one character from behind).

I'm going to ask this question flat out - WHAT THE FUCK was the point of that subplot where Jason holds the girl hostage? If there's one thing that dragged the movie down, that was it. Sorry folks, Jason doesn't hold people hostage, he kills them on the spot, no questions asked. Even worse, they provided ZERO FUCKING EXPLANATION for it. As a Friday fan, that subplot pissed me off because the character of Jason doesn't do that. He just doesn't. If Kane Hodder were dead, he'd be rolling in his grave at that character development.

Overall though, it's leaps and bounds ahead of Halloween, which was the last remake I saw in theaters. Because the theater in my town decided not to play My Bloody Valentine, I haven't seen it, so I can't compare the two movies like some of you are.

Prognosis? Aside from that fucking ridiculous hostage subplot, I liked it.

I agree....but they do explain.

Its because she looked like his mother...so in a way, it makes sence, if you go with the Ginny/sweater thing in Pt. 2

the ending wasnt bad.... just those stupid cheezy one-liners worked in the 80s..... but its not the 80s anymore.....simple basic plot... there really wasnt one... they didnt do much......exept smoke a little and play some beer pong.....they basicly just searched the whole time...didnt relate to majority of the characters(exept chewie, lawrence)they didnt capture the atmosphere they had back then becuase  people like michael bay and marcus nipsel who may think they're re-defining horror... are actually just dumbing it down....

Jimmy hit it very well! This movie is not for the diehards. If you are an average Friday fan, it would be great. Derek was awesome, minus the coat, but his portrayal was intense and done well. He actually got the scary side out in Jason which I hadn't felt since Ted White.
It was fun, with a few laughs, a few good kills, I liked the arrow and the sleeping bag.
MrsV was terrible and now I see why they kept it to a few brutal seconds...her delivery of the classic lines were just awful.
I did not like how he found the mask...too far fetched that it would just happen to be there of all places when he looked.
I also did not like the hostage part. If he really was confused about being his mother, why would he need to shackle her. LOL!

Again, I had fun seeing him on the big screen, but I sure was hoping for more for the fans who know their stuff.  :)

I've been a fan of the series for 20 years and i thought it was great to see it being just Jason killing people,that's what he does,he's a not a demon-hopping demon and he's not a cyborg(JGTH,Jason X)he's just put into mention on a simple basic urge of vengeance and i feel this reboot put him back in that light.I do feel there wasn't enough gore and i also thought the soundtrack was lame but i did like Steve Jabowsky's score alittle.I still wish they would have brought back Harry Manfredini but you can't always get what you want.I thought it could have been done worse and i'm glad it wasn't.I really just hope when they give us another film they bring back more gore and a better soundtrack.

I also agree with everyone on this as well i just haven't mentioned it.I really didn't like the Ms.Vorhees angle,i think thought should have been done better,it was well thought out and i feel like it was too rushed dialogue-wise.I also think Jason won't have stooped to taking a hostage,he would have just killed her in the older films.I did like Whitney's charecter the most out of all of them though.

I actually thought this movie was pretty well done,for a friday flick.The only person the bugged me was the trent rich kid,and his asshole-ness.I dont know,I guess I liked the different things they did-the hunting style jason has is killer -the score I actually liked-I always thought that fridays had a weak score,comparing to Halloween and phantasm-my two favs- harry manfredinis score got old after 4 or 5 movies.I didnt expect great character depth,there going to die soon anyways..its a slasher movie.The things that werent to great were the begining and the ending-both very weak!The gore wasnt to bad IMO,I think some movies go crazy and use to much,making it cheesy.
Overall Id say 8.5/10

Post by: SHORTY on February 14, 2009, 06:30:32 PM
I thought the movie was above average. I was expecting more gore but can't complain too much there. Early on the film had that traditional F13 feel but as it progressed that feeling faded. Mears played an excellent part but it just wasn't Jason. Not just because of the way the part was written but his body language wasn't up to par with what I enjoyed from Kane, CJ, Ted White, or Richard Brooker. Plus the whole Jason as a hunter thing didn't sit well with me. If this were a film that was supposed to be similar to F13 but with a different character name, mask, and references to the earlier films, it would have been great. But the fact that I as well as other die hards are so used to the older films it was hard to accept it 100%. I really tried to put all that aside going in to this but just couldn't.

EXTREME FUCKING SPOILERS.XD

I saw this last night,it was actually pretty good.Had all the friday character templates(The "weird hero-boy",the "Final Girl who connects to Jason somehow",the "Comedy Relief"(W00T FOR CHEWEY,XD),the "Token cool black guy","The slut",the "less of a slut,but still a slut",the "Nice girl",the "Preppy dick",and the "Geek who trys to be cool",XD.I liked Chewey a lot,XD,man,gotta love those drunken pot-headed geeks,XD.I liked how they worked in those references to Part 2,I.E,the Whiteny/Ginnie=Mommy Voorhees scene,and the one where Jason grabs Clay through the window,XD.To the few people complaining about the bow and arrow,Jason's had worse(Weedwackers and spearguns?Realy?XD).Chewey(As i've already said),was just an awesome character,i could watch his scenes with Larwence 1000 times,when they died,it sucked.Jenna's death was a dissapointment,when it happened,i had already pictured her as a survivor,so,yeah,bummer,XD.I liked Wade from the beginning,and overall,liked the prologue group(Sleeping bag and beartrap couple,Wade,Whiteny,and mister Machete everywhere in his body,XD)I'm also proud to say i placed bets on this movie,and made 30 bucks,i lost nothing,XD.I felt kinda bad when that dude with the "F**K" shirt,died,he seemed cool,he was at least funny,because he was so damned nervous.Bree and Trent(Slut and Prep-Jock) should have been Double Impaled,XD,that would have kicked ass.The creepy manaquin-thumping,pot selling,wood chipping,hillbilly,made me laugh,his death was awesome,and i am SO glad Jason saw him hitting on the manaquin,just to add to all the issues jason has,"I saw a man getting busy with a manaquin" just makes it gold.

YEAAAAAAH,i talk too much,XD.

Just everything about it felt so fake except for Derek Mears Jason. I thought he was great.

I saw this movie. And I thought it was pretty good. Some things could have been included more like the introduction of daddy and other things. But over all, I thought it was great stuff. Money well spent in my opinion. I went in with an open mind knowing it wouldn't be like the original ones, and I was pleasantly surprised. A job well done.

This was one series that needed a remake I think, and truthfully I think this Jason is much scarier then the old one. Much faster and more aggressive. Madman in the woods like that would be enough to give me a few chills. I enjoyed seeing Jason the first time again. Can't wait for the sequel!

But the question remains. Is this a sequel or a remake. It would be really, really easy to fit this story in with the original timeline! Its not so strange seeing or considering Jason taking a hostage, it's not much of a stretch. Look at twilight and all the "Good" vampire stories they make. Vampires wouldn't do that stuff but yet, they keep on doing it. I liked it and it was still evil, worse then just killing in some respects.

Go see it man and you can know whats up. Im sure most people here have seen it by now anyways. But still. Go see it. Im gonna go see it again I think!

I saw FvsJ in the theater and thought it was really bad. But, some parts I do enjoy now. . . same with the Halloween remake. So I'm not too worried about this one. But I still don't love them lol

Bree and Trent(Slut and Prep-Jock) should have been Double Impaled

I was totally waiting for that to happen!

I'm just surprised that it was better then FvsJ (which I didn't really like) considering the same people wrote it. I was really worried that it would turn out a lot worse then it was.

And I agree that it could be a sequel set within the earlier films

This was the best Voorhees movie since THE NEW BLOOD. It did feel like more of a sequel than a remake, which was fine with me.
My only complaint> The movie was too dark, not in tone, but the picture itself.
Lots of good gore fx and NUDITY!!!! :jason4:

i just got back from seeing it and thought it was very well done. i loved all of it except for the ending. im really glad they did a better job with this one than the awful halloween remake. but anyway back to friday the 13th the opening credits were great with mrs voorhees. i was a little confused in the begining. i was just thinking why is everyone being killed so quickly? then i was happy to see that it was just the intro. i saw someone mention they didnt like the music but i really liked the music. it gave the movie a very modern feel to it. like it was truly a present day jason voorhess. i wish they would have tied in a little of the orginal into it. and of course the ending  was very cliche and predictable.  but overall i loved it.

My thoughts on this film are fairly simple. It was a decent slasher movie. Not great, not bad, decent.


The Jason Voorhees character was strong, and I liked him. Pamela Voorhees, not so much.

Overall it is a cut and dry 3 out of 5 stars for me.

 As I watched this my first thought was on how old I am now. I can still remember seeing the original at the Garden Grove Drive-In with my folks back in 1980. Damn I feel old.

I have to say I loved the reboot. It was a great Friday the 13th film. The filmmakers knew what they wanted to do and set out to do it well. For me, having been a fan since the literal beginning of the series, it was a weird experience. Like watching a child grow. Jason had come full circle. The so-called "cockroach of horror films" had finally earned it's place in the Hall of Horror Classics. And it's box office take shows I'm not the only one who thinks this. The "Jason as a pot farmer", (even though he really wasn't), had this kind of classic fairy tale aspect to it. A group of kids, (seekers), goes in search of a bumper-crop of Crystal Lake Killer, (treasure), that is "guarded" by, (the literal sleeping dragon), Jason. Derek Mears is the best Jason since Kane Hodder. Rather than a lumbering zombie Mears made Jason the "Oh Shit!" bulldozer we all remember from the 80's Friday flicks. And, oh yeah, I wouldn't be a dirty old man if I didn't mention all the appealing eye-candy that the majority of female cast members displayed in this. I don't think I've seen that much T&A in a Friday film since Part V.

Now, this is not to say I didn't have faults with it. I found a shitload as a matter of fact. The beginning was too truncated. I would have liked to have seen more of Pamela's massacre. And Nana Visitor was not my first choice for the part. Fairuza Bulk would have been mine. And why was Jason running around half naked in the rain? Plus, that age old classic, that blast from the past, that platter that matters, if the Voorhees House was that close to the camp why the Hell didn't Jason just go home after he "drowned"? Maybe this is good insight by the writers though. As we all know going into the whole back story didn't work too well for the Halloween remake.

Another complaint I tend to agree with the lack of characterization. Now, any one who's seen a Friday the 13th knows that it's characters are like Simpsons characters, meaning they're all a caricature. But, I buy this criticism because in the old F13s we got a group of characters we got to know over most of the movie. By splitting the cast between two diffrent groups this watered down the characters even more. Some, like the hick in the barn, really was in there for nothing more than to get whacked and give Jason his hockey mask. But hey, that's Friday the 13th Baby! Anyone remember the fat hitchhiker with the banana?

My last beef was Jason's face. Or lack there of of seeing it for long. Call me a purist but I wanted that slo-mo shot of Jason's ugly mug we had in the first four films. What I saw looked great. I just wish I had seen more.

All in all I have two words concerning this remake. They are:



Jason Lives. :jason3:

    Alright kiddies I finally got around to checking out the Friday the 13th flick. And as some of you may know I am quite a fan of the slasher series. When the first one came out in 1980 I was just a gleam in my daddy's eye. But as the 80's went on and I was growing up the image of Jason Voorhees would haunt my dreams. In fact it wasn't until I was 13 or 14 I decided to "face my fears" and start checking out the movies. And once I was able to get past the fear from my childhood I was able to enjoy the movies for what they were. They were fun to watch. The movies were so campy, so god-awful that they were good.

    Let’s face it they kept cranking out sequels despite having films with names like: The Final Chapter and Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday. I mean it wasn't too hard to make one of these films, they made the same movie (to date) 13 times. It was the same formula: bunch of Horney teens go into the woods a lot of Horney teens don't come back out. The only things that were different were the shipment of generic teens from the suburbs that would be slaughtered by Jason and the imaginative ways they would be dispatched. Hell they even decided to try putting Jason in a city and shooting him into outer space (believe me kiddies I couldn't make this up).

    So after Freddy vs. Jason (the subject of many drunken debates) came out in 2003 it was announced that they would be making (yet again) another Friday the 13th. And I have to admit I was excited about it. I guess no matter how many times a hockey masked homicidal manic slashes topless girls with a machete I'll always be in line to see it, I'm just a sucker for it. And after much waiting on Friday, February 13th 2009 Friday the 13th was released in theaters.

    Now I wasn't able to see it opening week and in doing so I was checking out the reviews and finding quite a mixed bag of criticisms. I read reviews from movie sites, fan sites, and every other kind of sights you can imagine. But let me address all the critics’ right here: What in the hell did you expect? If you want to watch thoughtful, meaningful, creative movies go check out "It's a Wonderful Life." If you want Oscar worthy material then go rent "Rocky" or "Citizen Kane."  In 2009 you can't tell me that no one has watched at least one of those movies. You can't tell me that nobody knows what to expect. To walk out of a theatre complain about the acting, plot holes, errors, etc... In a Friday movie is like walking out of a whore house saying "I just didn't feel loved."

    Going to a Friday movies is a lot like going to McDonald's you know what to expect when you go in there. I don't go to a Mexican restaurant and ask for good fried chicken so why would you go into a Friday movie with these high expectations? You know what you’re going to get why can't people just sit there shut up, eat their popcorn, and enjoy the damn movie? It's been called "stale" "dated" "campy" among other things and to some extent you have to agree, however would you really want to watch a slasher flick that wasn't? Are slasher flicks supposed to be vying for an Oscar?  Would it even have a chance if they did adjust the script as such? Would the fans go and see it if they did?

    Anyways enough with the ranting. Some people don't know what to call this film. Is it a sequel? A prequel? Reboot? Remake? Kind of a yes to all of the above. It's not a sequel to Freddy vs. Jason. It's not a prequel to Jason X. But it is kind of a reboot/remake. What the producers were going for was this: If Friday the 13th from 1980 never happened this is how the movie would be done in 2009. Also takes elements from the first three movies and crams them together into one movie. Why the first three? Because they are highly regarded as the "true" Friday films by the hardcore fans.

    So on with the review. Now I'm not going to give away too much for those that haven't seen the movie yet so I'll try to give a good review and be vague on some details. The story goes that in June of 1980 a crazy old woman kills some camp counselors after her son drowns at Camp Crystal Lake. Well one of the counselors takes her head off with a machete, but little does she know that Jason was watching and now Jason Voorhees now stalks the lake killing any that dare to enter his territory.

    So fast forward to modern day a group of teens (of course) go into the woods looking for a hidden marijuana crop near the old abandoned Camp Crystal Lake and go missing. The Brother of one of the missing teens comes looking six weeks later and let the blood bath begin. I’ll say that the formula is pretty much the same as it was back in the 80's and 90's, with some modernization of the characters. But the acting isn't really that bad and in fact I was quite impressed with some of the teen actors (but then again I go in with low expectations) and Derek Mears stills the show as a terrifying Jason.

    Since I'm a fan of the old Friday series I saw some things that were tributes to the older films. I saw some death scenes that were spins off of old kills in other movies. Nothing too imaginative, but then again when it comes to these movies less is more, yeah what they lack in creativity they make up for in brutality. I mean Jason is supposed to be a tank, a non stoppable killing machine, not a genius coming up with "elaborate" kills. It satisfied my blood thirst. The music in my opinion was generic, but then again after Harry Manfrini did the original it is a big shoe to fill.  And the ending I didn't really like, but I think it did stay true to the old films so I think I will let it slide.

    So if you’re still conflicted on whether or not to see this movie I'll give you those Drive-In Totals (with apologies to Joe Bob Briggs):

We have:

13 Dead Bodies (appropriate number)
6 Breasts (10 if you count inanimate objects)
Multiple Aardvarking
Pick through the skull
Fire Poker to the Eye
Axe to the spine.
Multiple Teen Impalement.
Teen Pin Cushion
Death by Sleeping Bag
Throat Slitting
Machete through the face
Arrow through the skull
Kung Fu
Machete Fu
Fire poker Fu
Bear Trap Fu
Wood Chipper Fu
Heads Roll
2 Gallons of Blood
A 64 on the Vomit Meter

Award Nominations go out to Jared Padalecki as the hero, Travis Van Winkle as the douche bag, and of course Derek Mears as Jason 2009.

4 stars (out of 4).

If you’re a fan check it out, if you’re on a date and want her to jump in your lap check it out. If you’re not a fan of the series either go in with an open mind and just watch it or wait for it on DVD.

Spoiler (hover to show)

Best review in this thread..  ;D

I actually bit the bullet and went to see this (got in half-off) and wow, what a terrible film. I don't know, I love the Friday The 13th series but just couldn't stomach this one. It was a bit over-the-top for me personally. I could go through the list but everything I disliked about it has already been posted already. I will say however the one thing I was the most disappointed in was the beginning. The intro was just done awfully wrong, that actress who portrayed Pamela blew chunks. I really wish she would of had a bigger role in the film instead of just her beheading, I really wish we would've got to see her kill again. I also thought the soundtrack was horrible, I was hoping we'd have more of the original Manfredini score as opposed to the crap in the film. Overall it just fell flat on just about every level, out of 5 I give it a mere 2 but even that is being generous. Oh and btw Mears' Jason was actually one of the few things I liked, although I didn't care for the running but I can overlook that because afterall Jason WAS human at this point in the timeline. I still think Hodder is better but Mears would be second on my list.

I finally saw the film last night and I'm torn ... I'll explain.

It's not the worst F13 film ever, in fact I did enjoy it more than I imagined, but I do have some problems with it and the fact that it's called a remake when it could have easily been the 11th installment with one minor edit or change. 

I loved the beginning, the first 20 minutes are very good and sets a nice tone.  Maybe I'm just happy it wasn't set in space.   ;D   The rest of the film is okay but all in all I was happy but disappointed with the ending.

Remake vs Part 11:

Why did they call this a remake?  I suspect it had more to do with marketing than story, for all intents and purposes this film played out like a sequel rather than a straight forward remake.  I assume the studio felt they couldn't sell a Part 11, but since remakes are all the rage it was easier to sell to new fans (knowing us die hards would see anything with Friday the 13th in the title).  The series has always had minor adjustments, problems with the time frame, and this could have been called part 11 had they

My problem (spoliers) with the ending:

All in all the film is good fun but I really didn't see the need to make it a "remake", I'd even go as far as to say that they failed in what they tried to accomplish by remaking this film/series.

Post by: stain on February 26, 2009, 02:42:02 PM
I'm going to ask this question flat out - WHAT THE FUCK was the point of that subplot where Jason holds the girl hostage? If there's one thing that dragged the movie down, that was it. Sorry folks, Jason doesn't hold people hostage, he kills them on the spot, no questions asked. Even worse, they provided ZERO FUCKING EXPLANATION for it. As a Friday fan, that subplot pissed me off because the character of Jason doesn't do that. He just doesn't. If Kane Hodder were dead, he'd be rolling in his grave at that character development.

SPOILERS

I'm glad this was brought up because I didn't mind the hostage thing but it's unacceptable that they didn't explain why Jason would hold someone hostage.  It's a remake which means they were going to make changes supposedly for the better but by not giving a reason for the hostage thing it ruins the "new premise". 

Kat also brought up the rope and bells, in the tunnels, and it bothered me as well.  The tunnels were clearly a way for them to explain how Jason could get around without being seen and how Jason could sneak up on unsuspecting victims.  All of that is fine, but once again it was unnecessary without a little more back story or explanation.

The funny part of all of this is that normally when a horror film is remade they go to unbelievable lengths to over explain things that don't need it, yet in this remake they did just the opposite.  Also, Bay has fallen in love with these tunnels.  For Texas Chainsaw it makes sense, in the first Part 2 when the family lives at the abandoned amusement park they had tunnels so putting tunnels in the Texas remake had value ... here, in the Friday remake, it felt forced.

Oh well.  I suspected much worse so I ended up enjoying it.  The film has made a lot of money but I doubt it will hold up over the next few weeks because most of the people in the theater were not paying attention, laughing at the wrong times, and didn't seem to be scared or frightened.  That is why I feel like Bay failed with his Friday remake.  In trying to do something new and different he ended up making a good Part 11 but horrible remake.  LOL

Oh well.  I suspected much worse so I ended up enjoying it.  The film has made a lot of money but I doubt it will hold up over the next few weeks because most of the people in the theater were not paying attention, laughing at the wrong times, and didn't seem to be scared or frightened.  That is why I feel like Bay failed with his Friday remake.  In trying to do something new and different he ended up making a good Part 11 but horrible remake.  LOL

I liked the flim, and because of that they didn't make Jason seem like such a mindless serial killer, oh and I liked the bow and arrow kill.

I'm glad this was brought up because I didn't mind the hostage thing but it's unacceptable that they didn't explain why Jason would hold someone hostage. 

Yeah, it was only like a minute in the beginning, but Whitney's boyfriend says "You look like her" in the photo. At that moment, I whispered to who I was with and said "Oh geeze, they are going to rip off RZ's Halloween, and have Jason kidnap this girl, because she looks like mommy"

The film has made a lot of money but I doubt it will hold up over the next few weeks because most of the people in the theater were not paying attention, laughing at the wrong times, and didn't seem to be scared or frightened. 

I noticed the same thing, it seemed like EVERYONE was laughing a LOT, at parts that just weren't supposed to be funny. People laughed hard at most of the deaths...it was pretty weird.

oh and I liked the bow and arrow kill.

That wasn't a bad kill actually, a little far fetched perhaps. But it makes sense since Jason is a hunter...I mean, he had to hunt to survive all that time out there in the woods. Makes sense that he'd be good at it.

It's a remake which means they were going to make changes supposedly for the better but by not giving a reason for the hostage thing it ruins the "new premise".

He took her hostage because she looked like his mom...remember her boyfriend looks at the locket with Pamela and Jason in it and says "it looks like you".

I know its supposed to be a "new" Jason. But it still seems like a sequel, therefore I think I didn't like the hostage thing because it felt in many ways like the "old" Jason, and the "old" Jason wouldn't take anyone hostage.

No, I think it felt like it was a remake/reboot because it showed Jason witinessing his mother get beheaded, and just fast forwarded a bit. So therefore it is a remake/reboot.

For the sake of argument I get your point, but I feel this is only a remake/reboot in name only ... mainly for marketing reasons.

By no means was I suggesting that Jason should have been only a mindless mass murder, but when you take an iconic figure and re-imagine him you should have some decent reasons for doing what you are doing.

These are really side notes ... but I thought the original Friday the 13th and Part 2 did a better job of giving you a feel for the town.

For one, you actually saw a town and meet many (red herrings) of the townsfolk along the way in the original.  In the remake you only met a few members of the town, mainly distant offshoot type characters and it didn't give you a good sense of the community.  In the original there was a secret that had to be hidden, in the remake they were not as successful in getting that across ...
Spoiler (hover to show)

... and for all the talk of compressing the first 3 films into one and giving us a better story I thought they also failed.  I didn't need to see the same characters or story structure, but I did want to see further details.  We didn't exactly get that, like the person I saw the film with said
Spoiler (hover to show)

I hate to criticize the film so much when I enjoyed it, but I just can't say it was perfect or what I expected (considering the amount of time and money that went into this).

I had low expectations going into the movie,even through all the hype and excitement going on.So in my mind, I think it could have been a lot worse-like to much back story or changing the character drasticly.The change in music/tones I liked,actually having songs in the movie-yeah I liked rap-I think the music from 1-4 is to outdated.

I like this much more than that crapshit remake of Halloween..

IMO it was a remake, they tried to be clever about it however by taking aspects from the first three films and incorporating that into one. I just don't feel this was executed properly and the whole ambiance of the film was lacking in every aspect. Firstly, this definitely didn't feel like a sequel to me. Secondly, Aside from the terribly done opening scene it really didn't have much else in common with the original versions. Third, the whole way about him coming to wear the hockey mask was totally lame and uninspired; it was done much much better in the original Part 3.

Don't get me wrong, I am not knocking anyone for liking this movie but let's be real here, just because it had Jason in it doesn't make it great. I mean I love Jason as much as other fans but he alone doesn't make the movie, the characters and the settings play a huge role as well and this is where the problem lie for me. Hmm, me thinks they are trying to create a new series based on this remake instead of the originals. Why make a sequel to this boring film when the original series is already well established?

I dont know , I really liked the remake. yeah it did feel to much like a TCM , they should of gotten a different Director, but still the movie was good.some parts I didnt like and some parts I loved.but I think what getting everyone to hate this flick is thier looking at it as it was a Jason movie,it wasnt.Since VIII the seris has been , well kinnda corny.JGTH body snacthing,Jason X Space Bullshit,Freddy Vs. Jason Might as well have been Bride of Jason with Ronny yus stupid input into the seris.This was a Friday the 13th and you have to look at it like its a Friday movie , not a Jason. I feel they could have had some better things in the new one.I would have got rid of the writers and the director on this new one and started fresh, a whole new look and feel. not something we've seen before.

I thought this was a great film, yes it had its really cheesy moments but it brought a fresh breath to a series that has become stale and old. Jason was as brutal as anyone and yes even better that the Hodder films. The story was pretty well written and the characters were not that bad. I thought the film delivered

Third, the whole way about him coming to wear the hockey mask was totally lame and uninspired; it was done much much better in the original Part 3.


This is where i need to disagree with you , part 3 was an off screen kill nothing is less inspiring than that no creative death not even a scream.

I don't see what one had to do with the other to be honest. My point was that the whole aspect of Jason acquiring the hockey mask in Part 3 was way better done than in the reboot. First of all it had a purpose for being there, Shelly was a jokster so he brought it with him in his bag of props to scare the others (this was established early on in the film). Shelly uses the mask in a prank to scare Vera, it obviously doesn't go as planned and he walks off disappointed. He hears something in the barn and goes investigating, the rest I'm sure you know. The point I'm trying to make is that it was handled better here whereas in the remake the mask seemed to conveniently already be in place for him to find it which the entire sequence just felt like no thought went into it really.

I think it was cool that he actually got to choose between his old sack and the newly found mask-and the fact he looked in the mirror to check it out showed the more human side.

I think part 3 was too set up-and him putting on the mask for the first time wasnt a big deal back then because nobody knew how famous it would be.

True, but it was a sign that you knew Shelly was dead. So later when you see that Shelly is still alive and dying, it had more power to it...at least I think so.

When you see Jason walk out wearing that mask in Pt. 3 its creepy 1) for the way he looks and 2) you know he got it from Shelly....

But I agree, him just finding it on the ground was sorta crappy, but expected...I figured that the moment I saw that room filled with junk

Again i cant agree that the way Jason got the mask in part 3 is any better than the way he got it in the new movie. To me an off screen kill and having him walk out with the mask is nothing special. Now if there was a creative death that was on screen than maybe

also  i dont think of this movie as a remake i think of it as a sequel lol think about they just wanted to do a flash back on the mom and jason lost his mask and went back to the sack and then found a new one!!! :)

No, so wrong. I love the TCM remake...it had great characters, they were almost all likeable. The Friday redo had useless characters that for the most part weren't likable...thats one reason at least.

I'd have to see it again to judge it on more stuff cause its been over a month now since i've seen it the ONE time...compared to TCM which I've seen quite a few times.

I'm joining the discussion a little late but I liked this movie overall. Sure it can't touch the original but I think they did a good job of it. I especially liked the reinvention of Jason - he's smarter, faster, he learned to use a bow and arrow and just for a fraction of a second I thought he learned how to drive. (Thank god that wasn't the case though lol)

Some great kills – particularly the sleeping bag over the fire.

Mears did an excellent job of playing Jason - with every shot of his eyes (er, eye) you could tell what Jason was thinking. I also liked how they showed vague shots of Jason's face and let the audience fill in with their own imaginations.

What I didn’t like: the other characters were much too one dimensional.  I’ve come to expect terrible acting and cheesy lines, but would it kill them to write one character that wasn’t the stereotypical teenage slut or jock?  I would like to have one character that I could actually feel sorry for.

And with the red head being trapped underground, I could believe that Jason was so fixated on his mother that he’d chain a girl who looked like her in his liar, but if she was down there for that long, she should have showed signs of mistreatment/neglect and malnourishment.

But the absolute best part of the movie for me was: it didn't take place in space!  ::)

I agree with you on the Tcm characters.The only person to me that wasnt likeable in Friday remake was Trent,and he was such a brick it was almost funny.

But I get what your saying because theres really no depth in the characters what so ever,even with the brother and sister duo,she was down in the tunnels most of the movie.So you didnt get to know her.

With jason keeping her hostage really didnt bother me-It showed a more human side.....Think about It...If your mom was the closest thing to you..and she died and you've been basically in the woods alone for years and someone who resembles your mom comes along would you just kill her?

Right, you don't get to know them enough to like them. The first bunch of "kids" were funny, so you started to get to like them. Some of the characters later on barely had screen time, other then to be killed.

I think another thing that ruined it for me was being at the theater watching it. The people were all laughing at EVERYTHING. It just ruined it. Its was like watching a movie with someone who makes fun of EVERYTHING you like...you know? lol.

That's true about the TCM characters being more likeable. But the main reason for that i think is that there were only five people or something in that movie as the main characters and we get the time too get to know them all pretty good.

Also i noticed a scene in the F13th remake that is a little like a scene in the TCM remake. When Jason impales Trent on the back of the car and it drives away you see him standing on the road and watching the car drive away. That scene is a little like one of the last scenes in the TCM remake when Leatherface comes out of nowhere and attacks the car with the girl that manages to escape with his chainsaw. After that he also stands there on the road watching as the car drives away.

And i noticed something about the driver in the car in the F13th remake. It kinda looks like the guy with no legs in the wheelchair in the TCM remake.

There were things about the film I wished they would have done. I wish Mrs. Voorhees was not only portrayed better but had more screen time. I wish we would have had a proper unmasking climactic scene. I wish we had Harry Manfredini music.

You know what though, the new film was still a very enjoyable film. Despite some of those above listed things, it was still exiting and had many homages to the early films in the series. When we get Jason in space, people complain that they want him back in the woods. When we get Jason back in the woods, people complain about that. Some people just can't be pleased. Was the new film as good as the first four? Are ANY of the films from 5-up as good as the first four? Hell no, but I will say that the new film was definitely the best one we've had since the 80s.

Thats how I feel,you'd think people would be happy at the fact that they got to see jason again.instead they complain about how its not as good as 1-4.

Now look back at 1-4,and realize these are B slasher movies .Acorse we love them for what they are but just remember none of these movies are on the -101 movies to see before you die List.

Who's 101 movies to see before you die list? I think that everyone should see Friday the 13th (1980), Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984), and Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1987) while they are still alive. Those are not my three favorites in the series, don't get me wrong (though they are three OF MY FAVORITES) but I think those three films probably represent the series the best. I think the original gives you the story and atmosphere of the franchise. Then The Final Chapter gives you the most agressive human version of Jason with iconic mask and great music and Tom Savini effects. Then Jason Lives gives you the feel of the films that follow that go into a more enterteining/fun and less scary place.

The 2009 film was very exploitative with the nudity (that as a straight guy, I can't complain about) and did not have any POV or Manfredini music, but it did have an extremely bad ass Jason with ruthless kills and the Crystal Lake setting.

Roger Ebert who, along with Gene Siskel, had a campaign to try to get Paramount to stop making Friday the 13th films in the 80s (though Paramount never actually made any of them) actually had semi-kind words for the new film. He stated that it was the best Friday the 13th film anyone can hope for and that it was scary and the kills were brutal. That is definitely a 180 from Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter being immoral trash. I guess old Roggie it getting soft in his old age.

If I knew What i'd whoop his ass!Roger Ebert who,the guy is famous for watching movies?I think he could point out a few good ones-And the fact he said better things for the remake could say a few things.

1.Hes seen worse movies since viewing the first few Fridays,and understands that they are not that bad after all

2.Maybe the changes in the remake,which a lot of people didnt like,where a good change to him?

3.Hes getting old and movies suck nowadays...

No. Gene Siskel died years ago. Roger Ebert is very much alive and well. He reviewed Friday the 13th (2009) and had border-line nice things to say about it.

I don't care if Gene Siskel is dead or not. I'm not the type to kiss someone's ass just because they are dead. He was a total shit ass hole. He tried to get Paramount to stop releasing Friday the 13th films. Yeah, right! Despite how the studio itself felt about the films during that time, the films were making millions every year. They weren't going to just stop making money. Then he had the audacity to actually give away Betsy Palmer's personal information and tell people to write to her. That is just damn dangerous.

I'm sorry that the guy's dead, but he's still an ass.

after watching again ... clay said he took off when he was 17....and also never showed for a meeting they had arranged...why would he give a shit if his sister went missing... for all he knew.. she could have taken off.. just like he did....i can see how maybe the death of their mom maybe sparked something in him ... but other than that...  oh.... and i love trent more and more with every viewing... love his sarcasm....still think the ending is a dream sequenced like in pt2(could be wrong) but looks that way to me....



also... notice that just about every death was either through the chest or a head kill... you think they'd change it up a lil bit .....

He wasn't hitting on her more of the other away around just more subtle. Trent was definately being an ass from the moment his character was introduced in the store. What did Clay do to him? Also he didn't really give a shit about Jenna anyway because he goes off and fuuks her friend..

trent only has sex with brie cause he thought jenna went off and fucked clay all day.... ...  clay was tryin to play the serious, rugged, loner guy... and jenna totally fell for it.. trent saw it too and was like.. umm  thats MY gf.. i would have acted the same way.... and jenna must have been just as shallow to be with him in the first place...

ok maybe trent put up an act to get her. like when they are sitting outside he says all this crap about "hoolagins" so dont blame her! and Trent shouldn't have had sex with that bitch just becuase he THOUGHT that Jenna was doing it.

He obviously has NO respect for the chick he's with. She's not allowed to talk to clay...and he doesn't think twice about sleeping with the other chick. All she did was speak to another guy and try to help him for a good cause. Not a reason to cheat.

you guys focus too much on the guy being an asshole...i wouldnt want my GF talking to any strangers .. especially some random dude... good lookin girl.. good lookin guy.. you mean to tell me that the thought of sex didnt enter EITHER of their minds??  come on lets be realistic... we are humans..... and i still stand by that trent had to have been a decent dude for jenna to be with him... if he was a complete asshole the entire time.. then jenna is just a dumb bitch who deserves whatever BS he gives her....... i know if my GF just took off with some random dude whos been eye-in her .. i would totally think they were fucking all day..... gilrs.. put yourself in that positon.. if your BF went off with some smokin hott chick.. you wouldnt be jealous?

I've only seen the movie once, I can't say more then I already have.

Who knows if sex crossed their minds or not. Who cares if they thought each other were good looking? Do you sleep with every girl you find good looking? lol.

I know a few guys who are complete assholes, but come off as fun to hang with at other points. So, Jenna didn't have to be a complete idiot to fall for the guy.

As I said, only seen the movie once, I can't really offer more, as I don't remember it.

But its ok to go spend hours alone in the woods with some guy you dont know?
C'mon put the shoe on the other foot.if your man left you for a random chick that nobody knows,and was gone for hours in the woods alone what would you think?Im not saying its ok to cheat period but i dont think either of them cared to much about each other or their relationship,and thats what it boils down to.What was she thinking anyways,shes not familar with him or the area,he could have been the killer or rapist.

haha, I can't believe this is a big discussion lol.

I do see that point. But I wouldn't be in that position in the first place, I would have maybe gotten my friends and I to help out, depending on the looks of the person, which of course doesn't mean anything.

But yes, thats the point I was getting to, obviously they weren't in any sort of real serious relationship. Wasn't Jenna knocking on the door to the bedroom, not even remotely shocked at what he was doing...since it was obvious?

LOL

I know this has nothing to do with the thread but I believe a better way to look at it would be .... put the shoe on the other foot.  You, a female, are dating a guy fairly seriously and then out of the blue he starts semi-flirting with a hot girl and then runs off with her while you are planning a fun weekend at your summer home then I assume you would be pissed.  Maybe not to the point where you would cheat on him but certainly to the point where you would question his motives and what is going on when you are not around.  Paranoid?  Maybe, but no one wants to see their girl/boy-friend flirting with someone else and then running off with them for the entire time you are supposed to be spending a romantic weekend together.

Still, the guy in the film was a jerk and I believe no one really blames her for running off with the guy who was being unfairly picked on by her "jerk" boyfriend.  It also reminds me of the best Simpsons quote ever.  They are watching a romantic comedy and Homer says "I hope see doesn't end up with the rich jerk".    LOL

and  as soon as jenna sets eyes on clay.. she was all about him. IMO trent was being an "asshole" to show that he wasnt gonna let some stranger step in on his GF... even though he did anyway.... haha


but.... she didnt seem to care at ALL when she went to go warn trent and brie about JV.. and could clearly hear them fucking.....soo... maybe their relationship wasnt anything to either of them?....but... if you look closely when brie comes out of the room after having sex with trent.. she gives jenna that " yeah i totally fucked your BF look"... funny to me....

Trents "Assholery" was'nt all just about Clay and Jenna hanging out, he shared the wealth with pretty much anyone who posed danger to messing up anything in the house, like when Chewie broke the chair and he flipped out. Jenna doesn't have to be completeley shallow for dating Trent, i mean, he could have been nice once, or put up some kind of Nice-Guy facade in front of her at some other point in time that the movie did'nt cover.  At the point she heard them fucking, she had already expirienced who knows how much of his Bull shit, and probally did'nt care about whatever he did anymore.


And for the hell of it:
"Hi, my name is Trent, my daddy bent me over this chair and beat me when I was little, so you need to fix it."

I was trying to read this thread in its entirity but I would have been here for days lol. I did read an earlier post by Kat though saying that it could have pretty much been another stand alone sequel rather than a remake and I have to agree.

I'm even going to go as far to say that it shits all over the Halloween remake and those who know me know how much of a statement that is lol.

Check the running time:

Theatrical version:  97 minutes
Extended version:  106 minutes

The difference is 9 minutes of what I assume will be longer kill scenes and a little more nudity.  The way the production talked you would have thought it was 20 minutes longer and too over the top for the MPAA.  LOL

Check the running time:

Theatrical version:  97 minutes
Extended version:  106 minutes

The difference is 9 minutes of what I assume will be longer kill scenes and a little more nudity.  The way the production talked you would have thought it was 20 minutes longer and too over the top for the MPAA.  LOL

I'm going to watch the extended version tonight and tell you if I see any stand out differences. 

Yeah netflix version is 97 Minutes

Really quickly...before I go to bed, as I'm living off 4-5hrs of sleep...saw this for my 2nd & 3rd time tonight

Trent was not as annoying as I remember him being.

I still like the first group a little better I think.

The kills could have been better, but I thought they transfered onto a tv screen rather well. In the theater I recall it all looking very CGI. Not so much with the DVD.

But I LOVE how Jason (Derek) moves in this. I love a fast Jason.

The cop said they could not find any trace of the missing campers-no car or anything?So maybe Jason drives boats and cars now.

Saw the extended cut and nothing really to see, just some scenes over extended which was unnecessary. Trent was still an asshole and some of the other characters were really annoying as hell. The only thing worthwhile about this picture here is Jason in which Mears is excellent. I will most likely not watch this again just like JGTH which I haven't watched for over 5 years, I'll stick to the early Paramount films.

i dont get where did those tunnels come from? did jason dig them? were they like storage areas? and why did the police never search the tunnels after the first group of kids were killed/went missing? i also find it odd enough that with all the search teams they would have sent out they wouldnt have been able to find jason.

The tunnels could be there for any number of reasons, lots of old places have tunnels.

But it is weird that nobody else would have found these things in their searches

Finally watched it, last night!

Initial post-thoughts...I thought it was OK, some good scenes, good environment (kinda) but it was too predictable at times and it reminded me a lot of the TCM remake especially when he was sharpening his blade and the whole mask scene.

The things that bugged me:
Spoiler (hover to show)

Positive/neutral things:

--- Overall, it was good, but several aspects brought it down. At least it was miles better than the Halloween remake.

3/5

i agree... if they had huge extensive searches for the missing campers... SOMEONE would have had to come across the bell wires.... or that pot.... the redneck didnt cut it down till the day trent, jenna, etc.... arrived.


i liked the movie alright ... probably on the same level as  JTM.... some good parts... some bad....weak ending..... 3/5

The movie, I enjoyed.
Some parts were good, some parts were strange, and others you could predict.

The deaths weren't creative, thats the thing that got me, and I'm glad that Brad Fuller, the producer addressed this, and said that, one thing they were going to improve in the sequel, was the deaths, and making them creative. So I'm looking forward to that.

Some of the deleted scenes were great, really made we want to see it in the theatric version.

I really did think, that the ending could of been a ton better, I just didn't feel it, but overall, great movie, great character, can't wait for the sequel.

Post by: cbgamer4life on November 27, 2009, 09:51:22 AM
I was searching through my, erm, 'downloaded' dvd collection and came across this (forgot i'd even had it)  ;D

Anyway watched it last night and loved it all over again (i still think a 'fast' Jason is better) BUT i have a question,  :-X

He captures Whitney because i presume she looks like his mother when she was young (well at least the throwaway comment by her boyfriend near the start says so ??) so how come he keeps her shackled like a prisoner, i would have thought he would be doting on her ???

One of the best bits has to be when he captures her though, Whitney helps guy in beartrap, guys head meets machete, Jason's foot meets guys face, Jason runs at whitney, classic !!

I believe Brad Fuller mentioned on the DVD/Blu-Ray that indeed was a nod to Part 2 and was intentional as such. And becasue if that and a few other items littered throughout the movie, I could see where people would view this movie as a sequel of sorts.

I just wanted to add to the mention of fans that think this is a sequel within the franchise. I do not believe this is a sequel at all. This movie is meant to be a reboot to the franchise and start new wave of films. Yes, the writers used elements of the original franchise to keep some of the familiarity of the story and main character, but no way is this a sequel.

Any thoughts?

Its the start to a new series...or trilogy, or whatever you want to say haha.

But yeah, the way they wrote it it *almost* fit in with the earlier films except for a few minor (and a couple major) details. In the end its really impossible to be a sequel that took place during the earlier films.

He probably even knew about those parties but didn't bother because they never bothered him. Before Jason ever went to that house he came back to his house and found Clay's backpack on the ground, so he knew someone was snooping around. He is find until the little fuckers decided to trespass in HIS house. THEN he decided to do something about it.

that all makes sense.. but i dont remember JV ever seeing them go towards the house.. he just finds/takes the knapsack.... and he goes straight to his tunnel cause then we see him drop it and whitney  go through it to find the flyers...

the only part really is right after he captures whitney again.. we see him take her away(back to chain her in his dungeon).. and see that she runs quite a ways before reaching the house.. but after JV carries her away.. it cuts immediately to the power being cut off (by JV)... im pretty sure thats how it went at least lol..

This entry nwas a welcome addition to the series. I walked out of the theater very satisfied & that is something I had not done since JASON LIVES!!! The opening is the best out of any other entry hands down. I will admit it does have faults: pointless characters & a lot of the scenes with the college campers fall flat. However, DEREK MEARS more than makes up for it---BEST JASON EVER!!!! Bring on the sequel....

The only thing I wish they didn't do was the underground tunnels. I mean, there are not tunnels under Crystal Lake. The idea is ludicris. They should have just rebuilt the shack from Part 2, and included the alter with the mother's head.

Also, the very noticable absence of Manfredini's music is something to me that hurt the movie a little bit.

Other then that, it was a good movie.

Same here, and the only reason why they introduced the underground tunnels is to explain how Jason pops up here and there with ease. Maybe there is some deleted scenes in the later movies in the series where Jason is seen digging holes through the ground :P Personally the underground tunnel idea would make sense if he was slow but why does he need them when he can full sprint towards his prey?

It's very unfortunate that Manfredini didn't get a call back to score the film. I read somewhere that he would have loved to score the movie, but alas and that was their fatal mistake.

I wasn't thrilled with the idea of the tunnels when I first heard about them. But I actually liked them. I thought that the addition of the bell "alarms" were kinda stupid...but makes sense I suppose. I also think the tunnels make sense. And at least they were pre-existing...he didn't dig them.

lol the tunnels. i am not sure. i don't think he could have made them. i mean he had the time but why? also how did he get so smart. not i am not saying jason is a dumbass but it takes a pretty smart pereson to plan a series of tunnels with out them falling and the bells placement would take hours if not days to plan. you would have to be pretty damn smart to figure that all out on your own. no way jason could do it.

Post by: Spectre1428 on June 07, 2010, 03:47:21 PM
I could of sworn there was an explanation as to why the tunnels were there. Maybe it was on some features or interview. It was definitely pre-existing but it seems kind of weird that it would exist under a camp ground unless it was originally a fortress and I doubt it housed a barracks and contained prisoners underneath the ground.

Not that I'm aware of, I know there was the initial opening in the beginning of the film when he comes from out the secret door and later in the film there was an overturned bus I believe that had an exit.

I've noticed that the more I watch this movie, the less I like it. I like Derek Mears as Jason and I like how they kinda brought the old school Friday feel back to the franchise, but the characters are not that good and it reminds me more of the TCM remake, all though the formula worked for TCM, but not as well as the F13th Remake. When this movie came out, I really liked it, I was rating it as one of my favorite Jason movies, but now I'm just noticing all the flaws that I feel it had. I appreciate the Kane Hodder flicks way more then this one, but then again that's just my opinion.. I wonder if I'll feel the same way about PD's ANOES remake once I watch that one a few more times...

i dunno brother , i still like this movie in some ways ....
mainly the oldschool yet updated new version of Jason  and how the film was actually set in the woods . ie; not a city or a diner or space , etc .....    lol

but i totally agree that most of the characters just didn't cut it !?
i've only seen it a few times , unlike the other Friday movies , which i can pretty much recite by heart !!

Trust me it took alot of watching for me to even remotely just like this movie. It didn't make sense how he killed just about everyone in his sight but yet he held that one girl hostage, jason just does not do that!!!! He's an unstoppable killing machine.

It didn't make sense how he killed just about everyone in his sight but yet he held that one girl hostage, jason just does not do that!!!! He's an unstoppable killing machine. I hope they come out with friday the 13th sequel soon! One that follows up after the events of jason x

I would like to see a sequel from the remake,but from somebody other than PD.I like the new Jason concept-the movie itself needs more of an oldschool vibe

Watched it again the other night. It has its moments, but there are ZERO likable characters in this film. I do prefer the "Killer Cut" to the theatrical version.

Are you kidding? The Asian guy and the black guy were funny as hell. Jenna was a nice character. The pot head in the barn was funny.

I am not at all suprised by the thin characterization in this movie because it's been this way since the classics the only likeable characters I can remember that depth to them were Ginny, Paul, Nick, Tommy Jarvis in part 4 and 6.  Jenna, Clay, and whitney in the remake were all okay characters but didn't stand out much though I would like Whitney if she had actually run away from Jason when saw her friend get killed and instead of just  doing some some crab walk and I wish she didn't baby Jason at the end and then turn around and deliver some completely stupid line.

The difference is that in the original films, the characters have memorable lines and are easily identifiable. Every character in the remake are absolutely redundant, and the only brief times that we the audience identify as character back story, is nothing more than needless exposition. I didn't connect with any of the characters in this film, and the difference between the original films and this remake is that I can watch maybe 5 mins of one of the original films, and immediately grasp who the character is, what the traits are of that character and what will eventually lead to their downfall such as hormones, gluttony, basically any of the seven deadly sins.

The characters of Clay and Whitney have no characterization, they have nothing to rely on except for unnecessary exposition to make the audience try and understand with the them on a deeper level. They also have a ridiculous toss away line about her and Clay's mother dying which doesn't constitute as a meaty back story, it is as useless as their appearance in this film. So much could have been brought to this reboot but I'm disappointed in what they didn't do.

Was anyone else mildly annoyed by the creepy grandma that was ripped straight out of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre? I would have much preferred a character like Crazy Ralph, but we just got left over granny from the Hewitt family.

One thing that I did liike about this film was how they introduced a new age group
 


In the original films you got mostly teens age 16-18 now you have college age adults in the 21-23 age range

I don't remember there being any reference to them being college kids but anyone in the original series could have been in the same age range. For example: In the original Friday the 13th novel there is a reference that Jack and Marcie are doing the summer camp gig before they go on to different college's. And in Part 2 Ginny is an aspiring Child Psychologist, personally I don't think any of the characters were below the age of 17. Larry Zerner (Shelly) from Part 3 was 18 when he was chosen for the role so I think everyone was at least 18 and up which would make everyone in the Post-High School and Entry Level College range.

We don't actually receive an extensive knowledge of everyone's high school records and nobody really acts like they're still in High School except for Cort in Part 6 Jason Lives in my opinion.

This is a bit random but does anyone else think it leaves a greater impact when a killers victims are believable and likeable characters with a actual personality?  When I watched TCM the beginning for the first time I was sad to see the two brothers die and Chrissie not live but when I watched the friday the 13th remake I didn't feel sorry for them at all because they were all stereotypical cliched horror movie characters and they had no real depth or personality.

Absolutely, that is the best way to connect to a character in a horror movie and it only works if they have a personality, instead of a one note character whose purpose is to be fodder for the killer. I, unfortunately don't remember the Texas Chainsaw prequel or it's characters but I did have an attachment for the characters in the remake. If you hadn't told me their names I wouldn't have even remembered them but I definitely recall Kemper, Morgan, Pepper, and Andy. They were fun, had laughs, and came off to me as average kids just like in the original.

I connected to those characters and was rooting for each of them to survive. I can't say the same for anyone in the F13th remake though and it was directed by the same man. They may as well have all been cardboard cut-outs getting sliced and diced because that is what they were equivalent to. Aside from maybe Lawrence and Chewie there was nobody else I particularly liked, other than the kids in the beginning who are heads and tails above the main cast in this movie. I wish the kids in the beginning would have been the ones being chased by Jason throughout the movie instead of the Douche from Transformers, Matthew Mcconaughey, the other girls who all looked the same and had the personality of a used sardine can.

I also liked the TCM remake characters and main cast and I think both females leads in the remake and prequel were although orignally being eye candy for the male auidence also had depth to their characters and were actually likeable and believable for final girls . In the remake of friday the 13th you didn't get that you just got the screaming girl Whitney who does nothing for a final girl which is pretty boring IMO

The 2 final girls in this were way too identical. When I saw Friday the 13th in theaters I thought the sister was killed. I could not tell the difference. They were almost the same damn person. And that's another reason why the cast was bad. In every other movie in the series this could never happen. Evey one in the first 11 were original and very differnt. In this one I can't remember any of their names besides chewie.

That's Jenna and Whitney alright. It was a little bit harder to remember the girls in this one but I could tell Whitney apart from Jenna. Jenna was kind and sweet, while I remember Whitney just being the damsel in distress. I got more confused with the blonde surfer chick with the Matthew McConaughey look alike and the slutty girl who was always with the video camera. They had the least amount of characterization and were just there to be slaughtered pretty much.

The cinematography is too slick. I don't mind the slick, gothic cinematography of Part VI, but this movie tried to pay homage to the the first four flicks. It's too slick. It takes away from the creepiness.

The score is okay, but it's so forgettable. They should've paid more homage to the music from the first four. Certainly more Jason sounds. My guess is that they thought the early music and using the jason sounds more often would be too dated, and decided not to use them. I don't agree.

The opening sequence is pretty darn good. It contains the only creepy parts of the movie. The cabin attack, and that scene where Jason is just standing there, then runs up and kills Richie. The Mrs. Voorhees flashback should've been used during the campfire scene. I also thought it a little campy. It should've been more natural and creepy.

Some people complain about the shaky cam, but it only seemed like they used it occasionally. So it didn't bother me that much.

I would prefer Jason without the jacket, but it's not awful or anything. The hockey mask is too dirty. It looks creepier when it's clean, imo.

Some people complain about Jason taking a hostage. It doesn't bother me. I also love Jason going back to running. The trap setting is very interesting. The tunnels dont bother me. I mostly love this new version of Jason, but I prefer him in the shadows were often.

Some people complain about the deaths, but I'm fine with most of them. They're not overly creative, but I thought they were executed well. Everything has been done before anyway. Bree's is probably the only one I'd change.

I liked the Donnie character. He reminds of the kind of characters in Part V.

I think the second group of characters are uneven.  I thought Trent, Lawrence, Clay and Chewey were good as far as Friday characters go. Jenna was very nice, but maybe could've been fleshed out more. Bree, Chelsea and Nolan barely had any dialogue before they got offed. That's ridiculous. These characters party a little too much for my taste. It reminds me of The Final Chapter. That movie had too much dull partying going on. I would've fleshed out all the characters a little more. Have some of them doing more interesting things. Make the scenes between Clay and Jenna searching for Whitney a little more interesting. Make one of the characters a prankster. An homage to Ned, Ted and Shelly.

The sex scene between Bree and Trent is pretty awesome. I wish it were filmed a little better, though, and I think Trent's lines are a little too goofy, but that's just nitpicking. It's great, ridiculously long and gratuitous. Julianna Guill has big, natural breasts. Second best body of the series, after Debi Sue Voorhees.

Some of characters should've acted more afraid. The chase at the end isn't bad, but would've been creepier with better score and more naturalistic cinematography. I'm also tired of the guy surviving with the girl trend. Clay should've been killed off early on, so it would be just the girls being chased. Whitney being the sole survivor. Jason's death is pretty cool, but the ending is a tired cliche. If they needed a final punchline, it should've been more interesting.

Overall, I think this is a decent movie, but it's underwelming. I think it was a decent attempt at paying homage to the first four movies, but it's a little too modern, and they missed too many details. It could've been better. Julianna Guill is probably the main reason I've watched this movie more than twice, since I got the DVD.

That is what I admired about Shelly, he was somewhat of an outcast, admitted himself he wasn't a good looking guy, and just wanted people to notice him that is why he did the pranks. I also liked the brief moment where Vera pulls out the picture of Shelly and his mom from his wallet. The difference between Shelly and Chewie is that he was just an absolute spaz, where as Shelly really took his failed pranks to heart becoming depressed. Some of Chewie's lines reminded me of something that David would have said in Part 7 The New Blood, just really awkward and strange comebacks.

There was a debate on a horror forum if Ginny's ruse was more plausible or Jason taking whitney hostage as a way to keep his mother alive in his demented mind, My take on this is he already had a pitcure locket of his mom and her severed head so why would he need his young mom look alike in the flesh though both acts don't sound too far off because Jason was already having hallucinations and hearing his mom when she wasn't actually there.

Okay, I watched this again last night, mostly because I've never said anything of substance in this thread before. I wanted to have more to say than, "I wasn't really impressed with this film."

And, still, I'm not impressed overall. However, it does have some good points and I begun to appreciate them.

First, the flashback scene. This version of Mrs. Voorhees is a sad, insane old women who doesn't seem to understand if her child is even alive. Betsy Palmer was a great psycho. A sociopath if you will. I got the impression that she would have killed regardless of what happened to Jason. It was just in her blood. She was a cold-blooded killer, plain and simple. But in this version, I don't see that. This version of Mrs. Voorhees is really sad. She's still a nut, but I sincerely believe that what happened to Jason triggered her actions. I really felt for her. And when Jason finds her corpse, you feel for him to. I've never once felt bad for Jason in a movie before. But the remake captured this.

The next scene had some great stuff, some cop-out stuff and some just plain horrible stuff. The characterization of the characters was just crap. Whitney and Mike weren't too bad though. The writers really went out of their way to differentiate Mike and Whitney from the rest of the group--which is good, don't get me wrong, but they did it by making Wade, Richie and Amanda absolutely horrible characters, rather than making Mike and Whitney stronger characters. But Mike has a great line: "Have sex with your boyfriend in a cramped tent, drink too much, blow some chunks in the woods, and we'll go back Monday and deal with whatever." He comes across as sincere with this line. It's not wonderfully written, but the sincerity comes across in the delivery--something that sheds some light on Nick Mennell's abilities as an actor.

Jason's developed an even darker side in this version. He doesn't just kill you; he screws with you. When Amanda is burning in her sleeping bag while Richie, caught in a bear trap, is forced to watch and listen to her screams, we see, for the first time in the series, how truly evil and demented Jason Voorhees really is. It's not a matter of killing for him. It's more about humiliation, establishing dominance and making people suffer. Remember this. We'll come back to it.

Some of the best atmospheric tension from the film comes when Mike and Whitney are exploring the old camp. Two shots really stand out. One, is all the whistles hanging on the wall. It gives a humanity to the place: There were really people here once. Why are they no longer here? What happened to them? People, 30 years earlier, blew on those whistles. It's a connection to that past, a tangible object that can connect Whitney to Alice. The other shot, is of Jason's bed, with his name stenciled into it. One of my critiques of the Halloween remake was the over-humanization of Michael Myers. I felt Rob Zombie altered the character too much by giving him a motive other than insanity and pure evil. However, the humanization of Jason is something I've longed for overall in the series since Part 2. His humanity in Part 2 was merely grazed upon (the fact that Jason eats ["living off of wild animals and vegetation], uses a toilet, can be interacted with and reasoned with by child psychology), but I thought it added another dimension to a character that was decidedly without dimension. I am not a fan of the characterization of the standard teen fodder in this film, but this is the best characterization of Jason in any Friday the 13th movie.

Jason is complex now. He again has emotions and can be reasoned with. Plus, remember what I said about his goal not being just death, but something else? He's no longer the Wolf Man or the shark in Jaws here. He's not just slicing through bodies, with the end result being much more important than the method. Now, he's enjoying the journey over the destination--taking time and cunning to barbecue women and make sure people are forced to see it--including the audience. Because of this, it is totally believable and within the character to keep Whitney alive. This is a stroke of genius in the film. Many, many fans abhorred this, and I would too if this were the Kane Hodder Jason from Part VII. But it's not. This is a new Jason, a new Friday the 13th universe--all the rules can be rewritten; all the established preconceived notions can be thrown out the window. What's the crowning achievement of this film? That not even die-hard Jason fans know what to expect next.

Jason's tunnel system is also pure genius, giving credence to the scene--in any Friday film--where he just popped up out of no where. I also love to see him do things like sharpen his machete and have a temper tantrum. Jason is a character now, one who makes choices (does he wear the bag? Or the goalie mask now? Does he kill Whitney or let her live?), uses ingenuity (the tunnel system), experiences forethought and makes preparations (sharpening his machete) and has emotions (his temper tantrum in the tunnel after not being able to locate Clay and Jenna).

By far, and without a shadow of doubt, the best characterization of Jason, ever. And most fans hated it. Why? Was it not us--the fans--who put Jason on a pedestal and made him the anti-hero that he would be portrayed as in the 2009 film? We identified with Jason--not the teenage victims--and filled in our own ideas of his characterization when the filmmakers failed to do so. Really, people who are unhappy with this film, may need to look at themselves as a potential catalyst for the character's new direction before biting Nispel's head off.

Also, Derek Mears is a wonderful Jason, bringing back visions of Steve Daskawisz or Ted White. The slow, lumbering performance of guys like Hodder and Kerzinger clearly would not work in a film where Jason is more of a character than an undead moron. Mears' performance is anything but subtle. He rollercaosters through surprise (when Whitney calls him Jason) anger (his tantrum) brutality (when he's going after Whitney with the machete) and even recollection when he sees his mother's locket. While it may not be beyond the range of the previous Jasons as actors, this Jason does appear to be lightyears beyond who the filmmakers of previous generations wanted Jason to be. Mears steals the show.

However, the rest of the film is bland and reminds me of Part III or even the Final Chapter. Each installment had a new element--a gimmick almost. The first one was the gimmick, because it started it all. Part 2's gimmick was the introduction of Jason the killer. The gimmick in five, was the impostor. Six had the comedic aspect and Gothic horror overtones while seven had real match for Jason in the form of the telekinetic Tina. Eight took Jason out of the camp. Nine was more polished and aimed at a slightly older and more sophisticated audience. Ten took Jason into another time and location. Part III was just kids getting offed in the woods. To a lesser extent, the same could be said for The Final Chapter, but it introduced a child character for the first time. But, unless you consider 3-D the gimmick (and by gimmick, I mean something in the story) Part III is the shallowest of them all. But the remake isn't much better. Apart from Jason's characterization, the rest of the film is flat and dull and lifeless.

The cast of characters is a rogue's gallery of teen movie cliches: We've got the blond, rich 80's douche guy; the slut; the token black dude; and the Shellyesque nerd who you know would never be asked to hang out by the blond douchebag. We've also got the sweet, final girl, girl-next-door type and the rugged but warm outsider guy on a motorcycle. Add in two nobodies with a combined six lines of dialogue to up the body count and you've got Friday the 13th.

Trent's so aggravating and cliched, I can't even see him as a character. And who uses the word "stupendous" during sex? Lawrence has to be a racial stereotype. I know no African-Americans who act like him. "You ask the one black guy to pump the gas?" "Why does it have to be rap? Because I'm black I can't listen to Green Day?" That second line--the one about Green Day--would have been great if it weren't for the fact that Lawrence does not defy any racial stereotypes. He just whines about them. Yes, he is black and he does listen to rap. So why should he be offended by being associated with rap? Who knows. I really think the filmmakers were scared of making the fodder to complex. Maybe they wanted us to identify with Jason more. Chewie is a character, but only in the sense that Kramer from Seinfeld is a character: Rather than being a real person, he becomes a parody of one. It's genius in the comedic world of Seinfeld, and obnoxious in the realm of Friday the 13th. Bree is just there. She offers nothing and is nobody as a character. I suppose her function is to lure Jenna from Trent, widening the gap between them and giving the audience a reason to root for Jenna and Clay. But other than boobs and sex during a Santogold song, Bree has nothing with which to lure anyone. Even Trent. But it's in the script, so it had to happen--giving the storyline a square-peg-crammed-into-a-round-hole feel to it. There's also the two nobodies who Jason kills while water skiing. But there's nothing to say about them, and it's not because I don't recall their characterization. it's because it wasn't there.

The only real characters besides Jason are Jenna and Clay. Clay seems a little to well composed and ready to spar off and posture in front of Trent to be worried about his sister. He ping-pongs back and forth between being "the other dude" and being genuinely concerned about his sister. I mean, am I the only one who thought that, with Trent's attitude and zero situational awareness about Jason, that Trent, in Clay's eyes, could be and should be a suspect in his sister's disappearance? But does Clay investigate this? Nah, he rides off into the sunset with Trent's girl--a girl to nice and sweet to be believable as Trent's girlfriend in the first place. The characterization of these two was better than the rest, but sometimes shaky and inconsistent. But it was enough to make you root for them.

As expected, Jason cuts through Lawrence, Chewie, Bree and Trent before we're down to Jenna and Clay and--Whitney! The reintroduction does not exactly pose the question of "who will be the final girl?" which is what makes Jenna's murder a bit shocking. Shocking as it may be, it is very satisfying. If Clay destroyed the monster, saved his sister and got the girl, it would have been too much and it would have come off as hokey--and a happy ending would be out of place in this film. Someone had to die. But Jenna's likable enough that her death is met more with a sense of loss and despair instead of a raucous cheer of delight as many other Jason kills are.

Overall, the film went in the right direction, but didn't quite arrive at its destination. It's much better than I think some people give it credit for, but it is certainly flawed. When the film is working, it's firing on all cylinders, and when its not it's sputtering and about to stall. The middle ground in there is that it is average.

Post by: Killer-C on August 16, 2010, 11:34:08 PM
Okay, I watched this again last night, mostly because I've never said anything of substance in this thread before. I wanted to have more to say than, "I wasn't really impressed with this film."

And, still, I'm not impressed overall. However, it does have some good points and I begun to appreciate them.

First, the flashback scene. This version of Mrs. Voorhees is a sad, insane old women who doesn't seem to understand if her child is even alive. Betsy Palmer was a great psycho. A sociopath if you will. I got the impression that she would have killed regardless of what happened to Jason. It was just in her blood. She was a cold-blooded killer, plain and simple. But in this version, I don't see that. This version of Mrs. Voorhees is really sad. She's still a nut, but I sincerely believe that what happened to Jason triggered her actions. I really felt for her. And when Jason finds her corpse, you feel for him to. I've never once felt bad for Jason in a movie before. But the remake captured this.

The next scene had some great stuff, some cop-out stuff and some just plain horrible stuff. The characterization of the characters was just crap. Whitney and Mike weren't too bad though. The writers really went out of their way to differentiate Mike and Whitney from the rest of the group--which is good, don't get me wrong, but they did it by making Wade, Richie and Amanda absolutely horrible characters, rather than making Mike and Whitney stronger characters. But Mike has a great line: "Have sex with your boyfriend in a cramped tent, drink too much, blow some chunks in the woods, and we'll go back Monday and deal with whatever." He comes across as sincere with this line. It's not wonderfully written, but the sincerity comes across in the delivery--something that sheds some light on Nick Mennell's abilities as an actor.

Jason's developed an even darker side in this version. He doesn't just kill you; he screws with you. When Amanda is burning in her sleeping bag while Richie, caught in a bear trap, is forced to watch and listen to her screams, we see, for the first time in the series, how truly evil and demented Jason Voorhees really is. It's not a matter of killing for him. It's more about humiliation, establishing dominance and making people suffer. Remember this. We'll come back to it.

Some of the best atmospheric tension from the film comes when Mike and Whitney are exploring the old camp. Two shots really stand out. One, is all the whistles hanging on the wall. It gives a humanity to the place: There were really people here once. Why are they no longer here? What happened to them? People, 30 years earlier, blew on those whistles. It's a connection to that past, a tangible object that can connect Whitney to Alice. The other shot, is of Jason's bed, with his name stenciled into it. One of my critiques of the Halloween remake was the over-humanization of Michael Myers. I felt Rob Zombie altered the character too much by giving him a motive other than insanity and pure evil. However, the humanization of Jason is something I've longed for overall in the series since Part 2. His humanity in Part 2 was merely grazed upon (the fact that Jason eats ["living off of wild animals and vegetation], uses a toilet, can be interacted with and reasoned with by child psychology), but I thought it added another dimension to a character that was decidedly without dimension. I am not a fan of the characterization of the standard teen fodder in this film, but this is the best characterization of Jason in any Friday the 13th movie.

Jason is complex now. He again has emotions and can be reasoned with. Plus, remember what I said about his goal not being just death, but something else? He's no longer the Wolf Man or the shark in Jaws here. He's not just slicing through bodies, with the end result being much more important than the method. Now, he's enjoying the journey over the destination--taking time and cunning to barbecue women and make sure people are forced to see it--including the audience. Because of this, it is totally believable and within the character to keep Whitney alive. This is a stroke of genius in the film. Many, many fans abhorred this, and I would too if this were the Kane Hodder Jason from Part VII. But it's not. This is a new Jason, a new Friday the 13th universe--all the rules can be rewritten; all the established preconceived notions can be thrown out the window. What's the crowning achievement of this film? That not even die-hard Jason fans know what to expect next.

Jason's tunnel system is also pure genius, giving credence to the scene--in any Friday film--where he just popped up out of no where. I also love to see him do things like sharpen his machete and have a temper tantrum. Jason is a character now, one who makes choices (does he wear the bag? Or the goalie mask now? Does he kill Whitney or let her live?), uses ingenuity (the tunnel system), experiences forethought and makes preparations (sharpening his machete) and has emotions (his temper tantrum in the tunnel after not being able to locate Clay and Jenna).

By far, and without a shadow of doubt, the best characterization of Jason, ever. And most fans hated it. Why? Was it not us--the fans--who put Jason on a pedestal and made him the anti-hero that he would be portrayed as in the 2009 film? We identified with Jason--not the teenage victims--and filled in our own ideas of his characterization when the filmmakers failed to do so. Really, people who are unhappy with this film, may need to look at themselves as a potential catalyst for the character's new direction before biting Nispel's head off.

Also, Derek Mears is a wonderful Jason, bringing back visions of Steve Daskawisz or Ted White. The slow, lumbering performance of guys like Hodder and Kerzinger clearly would not work in a film where Jason is more of a character than an undead moron. Mears' performance is anything but subtle. He rollercaosters through surprise (when Whitney calls him Jason) anger (his tantrum) brutality (when he's going after Whitney with the machete) and even recollection when he sees his mother's locket.

I watched this movie again yesterday. I like it quite a bit better than usual. I now rank this one way up there in the series. There's some things could've been better, but as entertainment, it flows really well.

I think it works better if you don't look at it as a remake or a platinum dunes movie, but more of an unoffical sequel or something.

Your post kind of reminds me of part 8. Before the cruise ship is almost done, half of the kids know about Jason. That he's on the boat, and has been killing, and yet Jason still picks them off one by one, easily...

I'm not sure if this is what he means...but...

In the original series there was the town, and it was very far from any of the towns people (in the first movie), then with the releases of the other movies there were summer/vacation homes around the lake.

In the remake everyone seems to live smack dab in the middle of the woods and know about Jason, but Jason obviously didn't care about them, because they all still lived there.

One could argue the fact that Jason didn't kill everyone on the lake, only teenagers, or only teenagers who were up to no good

In the original series, folks in town knew about Jason because going by what Paul said around the campfire 'some folks have even claimed they've seen him". Jason didn't care about the people in town nor did he have any beef with them, it was the younger crowd who caused him to supposedly drown and killed his mother.

Ok I watched it again last night, and after a year of ignoring it, I looked at it diffrently, realized it wasn;t as bad as I thought when I saw it in theaters. Its flawed, the opening scene is kind of long, like 15 mins before the main titles show up. The kills happen really quick but then in the first 3 the deaths were quick and mostly involved sharp objects hitting victems heads. Dispite all of its flaws, it wasn't as bad as it could've been. Atleast they treated Jason with some respect

About the killer cut dvd: I notice the dvd still says "rated R". Usually, extended cuts on DVDs are losted as unrated. Plus, they put nudity in the mpaa description. That wasn't there in the theatrical description.

I wonder if they screened the killer cut for the mpaa? If so, it's kind of surprising it still got an R. Mainly because of the Bree/Trent sex scene. It's longer and more graphic than the original version. I heard they originally cut the scene down, because test audiences thought it was too much, lol. If this movie came out in late 80's, the mpaa would cut that scene down to 5 seconds at best.

To tell you the truth, the whole sex scene in the tent seemed the same in the theaters and the killer cut dvd. I saw movie censorship, but I still don't see differnce when I watch it.

Of course, seeing it in the theater was back in 2009. My memory is mostly blank from seeing it.

That was one of the best kills in the series right there! I won't even deny that got me out of my seat!

I have to agree there. While I did like the whole thing of Whitney being alive and all, I don't think the hostage scenario was Jason like at all. Platinum Dunes seems to want to turn Jason into Leatherface.

I think the hostage thing could work if he was trying to 'make another mother' out of Whitney,or subsitute her as a female influence/mother figure. I think they should have discussed his reasoning more for kidnappping her.

Yeah, but when you give him too much reason Jason sort of strays from his true character. Joe Bob Briggs said it best, Jason is like the shark in Jaws, there's no reason, no pity, he just kills.

The big problem I had with the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake is that it EXPLAINED why he looked the way he did.  All that did was humanize him.  Leatherface should NEVER have been humanized.  It takes the edge off of the movie.  The same should go for Jason AT ALL TIMES.

i like your posts , and your style ....yet feel the need to disagree about one thing .
part of the magic of the early F13th films is that the killers WERE human !
Pam telling the story of Jason drowning is what drove her over the edge .. a mother's anguish of losing her only child via a preventable accident . that 'humanizes' her in my book !!
and Jason seeing his mother beheaded , which is what fueled his rage and sent him on his mission to appease her ? that humanizes him too , IMO

I didn't' care for this a whole lot. Felt like parts 1 thru 4 combined. Also felt like I had seen everything before.

They openly said that it was like 1-4 or something like that combined into one and combining all of them for Jason's look. And to be honest all the Friday movies make you feel like you have seen it before.

Yeah, especially that first one, it was great but even better when it was called HALLOWEEN! LOL. Everything in the movies, in any genre, is something we've seen before. I just enjoy and don't question it too much.

So we don't want ANYTHING to be original?  I guess there's only so many wats to slice and dice.

I think this was a very well made reinvention of the series.

It had great and entertaining characters, a good mystery story of a brother seeking out his sister, an awesome Jason, and great death scenes.

I think the films only weakness was some of the diologue and the lack of Harry Manfredini music. It also needed more chchchhahaha.

You know, it's funny. We all bitch about wanting something new, yet everyone of us keeps going back to the same tried and true films and characters we've always loved. If we REALLY wanted something new, there would be a lot less sequels made. If we REALLY wanted something new we wouldn't raise Hell whenever anyone tries anything new (Halloween III, Friday 5, Jason Goes to Hell, Jason X, etcetera.) We do want something new, just as long as it's not made a part of anything old.

I'm not sure if this is what he means...but...

In the original series there was the town, and it was very far from any of the towns people (in the first movie), then with the releases of the other movies there were summer/vacation homes around the lake.

In the remake everyone seems to live smack dab in the middle of the woods and know about Jason, but Jason obviously didn't care about them, because they all still lived there.

One could argue the fact that Jason didn't kill everyone on the lake, only teenagers, or only teenagers who were up to no good

I think what I meant was, the locals seemed like Rednecks, when people like The Jarvis family, seemed like normal americans, but in the woods.

I  don't know about this one. He did kill the guy in the barn before he found the hockey mask. It didn't seem to me that anyone else lived near the lake. Perhaps more people lived in town. I think the only person Jason "lets" live is the old lady, and I think she might possible be a realative. Think about it, someone had to teach Jason to use kerosine and put lights all over the place.

This is where the remake needed to explain more about Jason.  What did Mommy Voorhees teach him?  They had a house and a bed(?) with his name on it.

These movies aren't meant to heavy explaining. They are meant to be taken at face value. That is why WE, th fans, come up with our own theories.

The Blu-ray has both the theatrical and killer cut on the same disc. It has a picture and picture commentary style extra feature and a featurette called Hacking Back/Slashing Foward. Then it has the two extras that the DVD has: Rebirth of Jason and deleted scenes.
