    It's said that you haven't really made it as a true horror franchise until you've resurrected the series from its seeming end. FRIDAY survived a Final Chapter, Freddy lived on after FREDDY'S DEAD, Michael walked again after being beheaded in H20, and now, FINAL DESTINATION has death doing his thing once more after previous promising "THE FINAL DESTINATION". Nothing is Final in horror, especially when money is to be made!

    We asked you guys your favorite in the series when the third film came out here, but two films later and a lot of years in the rearview mirror...which one stands up as your favorite now?

    FD2 edges out the first installment just slightly for me.

    The second and third. I dunno, the second is just an inch better and the third one is just flat out so entertaining, fun characters and cool deaths. The first is alright, but the rest are craptastic.

    The original by far for me, but I do think this is a for the most part very solid series.

    Man, tough call. Just watched FD 5 this weekend. I have see all 5 FD's, and have 1, 2 and 3 on DVD, and Part 4 on Blu-Ray 3D. I think it's a tie between the first and 5th one.

    Yeah this is tough. As of right now I am going to go with,

    Final Destination
    Final Destination 3
    Final Destination 5
    Final Destination 2
    The Final Destination


    But I think I need to re-watch the whole series and then truly decide. For anyone that hasn't seen the 5th one yet, run to your theater and do so before it's gone, and so it does well enough to get another one in the series! It was really good, and after re-watching the series it may end up being my favourite.

    I love them all for different reasons.

    The first is just a great original horror film, well thought out and executed. I would go as far as to call it brilliant.

    The second started the "mindless fun" aspect of the series. It still tried to develope some characters, but the kills took center stage and the fun began.

    3 was also very fun, but might be my least favorite.

    4 is just great mindlessness and is perfect as an 80 minute escape into gore and silliness.

    5 I've only seen once but it has a strong chance of being my favorite of all, have to see how it holds up to repeat viewings (repeat viewings made 4 better as I didn't love it from the get).

    All that said, 2 is still my favorite, but I won't part with any of them. I won't even part with my dvd of 3 if the blu-ray doesn't have the 'choose your fate' option. While kinda weak, I always like seeing alternate kills and gore. Can't wait for 2 on blu! I almost bought the Canadian BD a while back but chose to hold off for a better version.

    never been a huge fan, but i've watched them nonetheless. i've only seen each of them once, so my memory is fairly shady for all but part 4 (haven't seen 5 yet). i guess i would have to go with part 1.

    I've only seen the first two, and I had to go with #1. It had a fun concept and pretty good jump-scare/shocking kills for its time. it's tough to craft these films without a traditional "villain" and I think the ability to do so had already waned by #2.

    Having not seen the new one yet: 2, 1, 3, 4

    4 was so fucking terrible that I had no intention of seeing the new one, but after reading some of the comments on this site...maybe.

    Haven't seen 5 yet. But I think 3 is the most fun, followed up by 2,1, and then 4.

    The original. Haven't seen the new one yet but being that sequels rarely surpass the original I feel confident my opinion won't change. Part 4 was the weakest so I don't have high expectations.

    I've yet to see the latest installment, but as it stands part 2 is my favorite. No matter how many FD films Hollywood churns I doubt they can out do that opening car crash scene from the second film. I remember seeing it in theaters and my jaw hit the floor from all the carnage!

    Just watched the fifth. Still think the first is the best with the most replay value.

    As I also posted in the FD5 thread I just saw the fifth as well and was surprised at how good it was. The original is still my fave though.

    I'd say the 5th is as good if not better.

    Honestly guys, I wasn't sure what to expect after the crapfest that was part 4 but all the positive reviews (From horror sites) sold me, and I'm glad I saw it as it is really damn good! Everyone go see it so we can get another one, as the 5th one sets up for some more. Don't let part 4 stop you from seeing this one in theaters or you will be disappointed. Up there with Piranha 3D for one of the most fun experiences at the theater, and one movie that's actually worth the extra money for the 3D.
