    Not sure if I get the complaints about this movie or not. It’s over the top. Yes. It has characters who are racist but the film itself is not racist. It deals with racism. The main character is one hundred percent masochistic and terrible but are we really rooting for him? I don’t think so. And I don’t think the director wanted us to think that either. I think Cimino is easy to shit on because he has been for…

    20 years later, I think we can all agree that this is proabably more worthy of Best Picture than American Beauty was, right?

    I could watch this over and over and over. It gets better with every new viewing.

    I go between two and four as my favorite films of the series. The Jason in part four is so menacing and violent and scary but the hillbilly bag wearing Jason in this is no slouch as a machete slinging madman. 
    I think that Ginny is the best final girl in the series and really amps up the film because she’s a strong character. 
    Little things in the film I really enjoy are the Jason shack, the conversation about Jason…

    ★½

    Garbage sequel that is really a cable remake of the original with none of the scares, direction, or acting that made the original great.

    ★★★

    Some stuff is real and some stuff is fake? What? 
    The live footage is really good. It could’ve been two hours and just been real. The stuff with Joni doing coyote is amazing. The fact that mick ronson is not mentioned or brought to the spotlight is infuriating. Mick Ronson made those early Bowie albums great and played the lead guitar on this Dylan tour and kicked ass. It sucks that he doesn’t get the recognition he deserves. But jimmy carter gets a mention. Makes sense.

    It’s a beautiful film. Sellers is fantastic as Chance the gardener. The film is shot beautifully and I love the subplot of the president as his wife. She is sooo horned up in every scene!

    It’s a bunch of nerds bitching until the last minute and a half where they all decide that they don’t mind as much as the first hour and a half of the movie leads you to believe.

    ★★★★½

    This movie rules. Probably the greatest slasher film of all time. 
    If Robbie Robertson, the cast of SCTV, the first and last hour of The Deer Hunter, and the best twenty mins of Friday the 13th parts 1-4 fucked each other and a baby was produced then transferred to film, it would have looked and sounded like this film. 

    P.S. this is the most Canadian movie ever filmed.
