I liked the first two then it got stupid. Maybe if it's a modern remake of the original it might be ok.
Of course the Friday movies are stupid, that's part of their charm. By Part 6, they knew that they were stupid and even poked fun at it, while still having some likable characters, great kills, funny moments and occasional creative storylines. Freddy v.s Jason and Jason Lives would probably be my all-time favorites. I would love to see a Pamela Voorhees movie though, I agree with you on that.
Horror movies have gotten really lame lately. You think with the technology advances they would've gotten better, but its been the exact opposite.
Too much torture porn and not enough scares. There are only so many slow kills I can watch before I cease to care. Last 2 horror films I really liked were by the same director: Neil Marshall. Dog Soldiers and The Descent.
The only horror movie I have cared about in ten years was Cabin in The Woods because it showed how stupid they have become.
Afflicted, (REC)) and The Wolfman were all masterpieces.
You cannot possibly be referring to that god awful Benecio del Toro film, at least tell me you are talking about the original.
Yes, I understand it didn't get critical praise. I understand it didn't earn a lot at the box office. But I thought it was an intelligent, emotional, character driven remake with a story and characters that were improvements over the original. I'd be happy to explain but I won't if onlu because dissenting opinions on movies aren't allowed on PR.
He's talking about the atrocity that was the Benecio del Toro one.
How was it an atrocity? I saw a lot of movies in 2010 and I will easily admit The Wolfman was the best out of all of them. Best remake ever too if you ask me. Most of the time, I HATE remakes, but The Wolfman was the ultimate exception.
We all have guilty pleasures in film but at least admit when your pleasures are guilty. I watch plenty of crap that isn't a cinematic masterpiece.
I don't even think it's a guilty pleasure. It really is a critically underrated gem. I have no problem admitting my own guilty pleasures. Jason Takes Manhattan, Ninja Assassin, Snow White and the Huntsman, Quest for Camelot and A Troll in Central Park are stupid as hell and I would never in my right mind call them good, but I love them anyway. The Wolfman isn't in that category...It's one of my favorite movies and I have trouble finding anything bad to say about it, apart from the crappy CGI, but the movie makes up for that with a great makeup job by Baker and some beautiful sets and cinematography. Not to mention the deep themes, fantastic acting, great characters, smart story and script and tragic ending.
