    spean, we're never going to agree, so let's at least agree that the series does not have proper continuity, making a correct timeline impossible to ascertain. You're right, Cunningham probably meant it to be 1980, though I remember reading somewhere it WAS meant to be 1979. We can also look at it this way: in Halloween, it's never once implied that Laurie is Michael's sister. That was something decided later (outside of Carpenter's original vision) when a sequel was planned. Yet we have all come to accept that she is his sister. Another reason I see part 2 as taking place in 84 is because the clothes and music are much closer to the original date of its production. Whether 2 actually takes place in 84 or 85, the clothes and music are hopelessly outdated. Let's suffice to say late-70s, early-80s. It's not our fault we can't come up with a coherent timeline, it's the writer's.

    I agree. The movie (part 7) looked really good. The ending sequence in the house was phenomenal. Kane Hodder and Buechler made those scenes outstanding. From the lighting, the camera angles, the visual sight & power of Jason, the burn stunt, etc... Just awesome. In all 11 films(Freddy vs Jason) not once did the Jason character ever come close to the emotion that was portrayed in that film. Especially the ending.

    Every detail was awesome. From the part when he entered the house and threw the girl behind the TV to the , IMO the single coolest action that Jason ever did in the whole series. - When the two, right before they ran upstairs, Jason closed the door on them, to avoid them escaping. That little move made him very human, it made him smart. He wasn't just a mindless killing machine at that moment. To the part in the basement, where Jason rips off the wire from his neck, was saying (without words) "Alright, its over now bitch" To even the look over his shoulder at the furnace, then back to Tina. Again, he said nothing, but his face screamed out plenty.

    I still challenge any other entry to top that sequence. Even the part where Tina & Jason meet at the road. You could not ask for better editing of sound or visual on that scene.

    Can you tell I like Part 7 ? :D

    Yeah, the timeline is all over the map: Part one was present day 1979/80, Part 2-4 takes place 4 or 5 years later. Part 5 and 6 take place another 5 or 6 years later. Part 7 takes place probably after another 10 minimum. By the time Part 8 arrives on the scene if you follow proper continuity it's at least 20 years after part 1 yet the series is still mired in the '80s.

    That's really not true, part 6 was good, part 7 was great, and I liked parts 5 and 8 a lot.

    Anyway, they just really have to do the complete opposite of what all the remakes, prequels, and bad direct to video or made for TV sequels are doing. No stupid backstories, no stupid 'new looks' for the killers, no goddamned one-liners. Just some teens or 20 somethings in the woods with lots of little atmospheric touches like wind and rain and cold air and placid small town lakes and dark woods. And of course, lots of weapons, a little violence and gore. Make it fun for people to watch again.

    I like Part V, I think its under-rated. Part VI is the best IMO, Part VII uncut would be awesome, in its cut version it is still good though. Part VIII is a letdown I have to be in the mood for it.
