Once again, another YA tale that misses the mark despite the presence of the great Meryl Streep and Jeff Bridges.… Full Review »

The first 40 minutes are just breathtaking. I'm not exactly a Sandra Bullock fan, but in this film she does a great job. The same goes for George Clooney. My only complaint is the end of the movie which, to me, was just not believable enough. The move should have ended 15 mins before it actually did.… Full Review »
Once you get over the absurdity of the premise you can see the potential for a good film here. A slasher film set in space sounds awesome.Once you get over the absurdity of the premise you can see the potential for a good film here. A slasher film set in space sounds awesome. While we technically already got that with 1979's "Alien" this movie had the advantage of having a legendary horror villain to use that could have set it to greatness. However the results aren't as satisfying.
In it's best moments it can seem like a low-budget version of Alien. In it's worst the intentionally self-aware sense of humor cranks up the absurdity dial and pulls you out of the experience. Not that it was that great of a movie anyway. As always with this series the scares are non-existent and the appeal is just on watching characters get killed in brutally amusing ways while maybe getting to see some boobs in the process. It's mindless, but entertaining.
You think that the jokes would actually end up adding some value to the experience, but they actually just end up bringing it down. Self-aware doesn't always equal funny. Sometimes the jokes can just be cringe worthy. However the only times things get bad is during an intentionally goofy showdown between Jason and a one-liner spouting android. That whole scene is just awful.
I think the film would actually have benefited if it had taken the serious tone of the earlier Friday the 13th films. The idea would still be out there, but at least we would have avoided the bad jokes. As it stand though there is some entertainment to be had here. It can be quite fun and it's pretty cool to see Jason cutting down space marines. Your enjoyment depends on whether or not you can get behind the premise, as well as how big a fan you are of this series. As far as I'm concerned it's far from Jason's worst killing spree.
I give "Jason X" a 6.5/10.… Full Review »
I was not tired of the same formula that Screenwriter Kevin Williamson does with the last two installment of the franchises, but the third oneI was not tired of the same formula that Screenwriter Kevin Williamson does with the last two installment of the franchises, but the third one was my favorite of all the scream films. Stab 3 is in production inspired by Sidney's life ("The Woodsboro Murders") ghost face returns! and they are dealing with a trilogy. Director Wes Craven does his horror magic and that's what i like about the film, also the script. But the script is written by Khren Kruger he takes the franchise in his own hands and goes in the wrong direction with Craven. But your gonna have fun watching this trilogy. Grade A-… Full Review »
Wasn't necessarily scary but it was definitely a great refresher from all these cliché horror movies that are out today. If you love theWasn't necessarily scary but it was definitely a great refresher from all these cliché horror movies that are out today. If you love the horror movies of the 70's and 80's this movie is for you. excellent soundtrack, definitely has that John carpenter vibe going for it. It was honestly one of my favorite things about the movie. This movie does a great job at making things intense with the unique camera work and that creepy music that gets under your skin. More so called "horror" movies today lack in creepy soundtracks. Hopefully it follows will be an inspirational movie for future horror films.… Full Review »
