Friday the 13th (1980)
An Overrated movie
Okay, I do not see at all how Friday the 13th (1980) (or any of its endless sequels for that matter) can be considered a classic. Sure it gave use legendary killer Jason (actually it was Part II to be accurate) I know typically horror movies generally are not known for their great acting abilities, but come on. The only decent acting comes from Betsy Palmer, Adrienne King, and Kevin Bacon. Their is no significance to almost any of the characters and it seems as if they are just walking around waiting to be offed. The script is crappy and so is the directing. The movie only cares about blood and sex which in my opinion shows the signs of a "bad" horror movie. I mean look at some of the intelligent and clever horror movies that came around at the same time- "Halloween" "A Nightmare on Elm Street" etc. I also don't understand how this movie generated so many sequels that only get worse as the series pretty much drags on. Heres an interesting fact: Betsy Palmer said "the only reason I accepted the role was because I needed the money to get my car repaired" and in fact called the movie "a piece of s**t" I agree Betsy.
Ugh. Horrible 1/10
Scream 2 (1997)
Scream 2 is pretty good
Scream 2 is undoubtfully very inferior to the first Scream, but is actually quite superior to the other big horror movie of 1997 I Know What You Did Last Summer (also written by Kevin Williamson). We all know what happened so here's my grade for Scream 2.
ACTING: Great performances from the returning cast (David Arquette, Neve Campbell, Jamie Kennedy, and Courteney Cox) Sarah Michelle Gellar was also good as was Jada Pinkett and Omar Epps. However, I wasn't fond of Jerry O'Connell, Elise Neal, or Laurie Metcalf. Everyone else was decent. 8/10
SCRIPT: Not as hip or scary as the original without question. I liked the sequel discussion though, but the end was a bit weird as was the beginning (I mean come on no one can get away with murder in a movie theater and if one of the killers moved out on their son, why would she kill for him) ARGH! There were parts about this movie that just annoyed me. 8/10
GORE: A lot less than the original. 6/10
SUSPENSE: Really I only found the end and the car scene to be truly suspenseful. Every else while not dull was OK. 7/10
SCORE: The same as Scream pretty much which was great and the songs chosen were great too. 10/10
Extras were great on DVD too.
