It has its moments for sure and I love the late 80's vibe to it but theres a lot of issues I still have with it but its a part of the series. I still enjoy it from time to time.

Yeah, I think the boat scenes aren't *too* bad (nor too good) but it sure beats when they all get to NYC, that was ridiculous.

Yeah, at least the Paramount ones connected together. Sort of. I mean, they TRIED to connect together, even if the timeline got a little skewed. They feel more "official" that the New Line ones. It's just a shame the Paramount movies ended with Jason laying in a tunnel under Manhattan.

I've talked with several other fans about this, and the Paramount films do have a certain "feel" to them that the New Line ones don't. Part 8 used to be one of my least favorite, but I enjoy it a lot more than I used to. It has that 80's feel that I love, and you can't beat that opening song!

lol. And when it plays on the radio, the DJ fades it out to say, "This one goes all the way out to the graduating class of Lakeview High..." then turns it back up. What radio station does that?! I ask you!

I noticed in the one scene with the douche professor and Tamara where she does her biology "assignment", the bondage scene from Jason X was inspired by this somewhat.

Right? Or just coincidence.

I think the Paramount years really followed a certain template or formula to get them from start to finish when telling these stories. They didn't really deviate much from that until they got to New Blood. When they started going in new directions that rankled their base, but in retrospect, it was probably the best move to keep the license fresh and moving forward.

When I compare this franchise to say the Halloween franchise, I find this one infinitely more interesting. Myers, while fun to watch, is a one trick pony tied to chasing relatives and everyone wondering why he does it. That story gets old really fast. Now they're bringing Laurie Strode back and suggesting it was never his sister. What a mess. Jason has his origins but can expand from there. You can put him anywhere and have him do anything and he's entertaining.

Jason takes Manhattan is a fun excursion. And while I could think of a million ways to have told a better story, it did the minimum it needed to do to keep me in the story. The ending was odd, but it did allow for the character to be kind of reset in appearance although it would have been interesting to explain how he got there.

I'd love to have a chat with Carpenter off the record. He's got to have huge regrets ever taking the story in that direction. You're right....it boxed the story in completely.
