Friday The 13th Part VI: Jason Lives..a GOOD movie!

Discussion in 'Slashers' started by Peter Vincent, Feb 12, 2007.

  1. I popped this in this weekend to listen to the commentary. This is the first time I've seen it WITHOUT seeing all of them in a row. It may pale in comparison to the first four, but I actually found myself really enjoying this chapter! Its immediately moved up on my "fav Jason movies list"! Plus U got Thom Matthews from ROLTD 1 & 2, plus a couple of minutes of the BEAUTIFUL Darcy Demoss!

    Anyway, just wanted to convey my newfound appreciation for Part VI! I DO believe this could've benefited from that big, brute Kane Hodder as Jason (he's not my fav Jason, he just wuold've worked for this picture), but it was fly!

    When this played theaters, I was still longing for the rawness of the very first movie. I wasn't very pleased with the 5th installment at the time and wasn't "feeling" another Friday flick. That all changed that warm summer night at Reno's packed drive-in as FRIDAY 6 turned out to be a fun ride. Oddly paired with "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" (!)
    We went to go see it a second time at an indoor theater paired with "Big Trouble in Little China".
    Although the film lacked the "battle with the final girl" sequence I so LOVED about these films, the addition of Thom Matthews made the flick worthwhile.

    Part 6 is in most folks top 3 Jason flicks, or so I thought. A nice mix of Crystal Lake madness and 80's Velveeta.

    Jennifer Cooke is enough to make it one of the best Fridays. Cool soundtrack as well.

    The only thing it's missing is tits and ass. In the one sex scene the chick is wearing a shirt. What a disappointment!

    Part VI seems to be a fan favorite from what I can tell but it's never done much for me. As far as Zombie Jason goes, I'll take Part VII. If given a choice, though, I'll take I-IV over all of them.

    Human Jason rules.

    Jason Lives is my favourite as well! I thought it wasn't very liked but a lot of poeple on here same to have the same appreciation for it as me. It doesn't take anything too serious, and was THE Jason movie when I was a kid.
     
  15. I thought it wasn't liked much either...but I see I was wrong.

    The first four have a certain flair...I dunno. I always put everything after 5 on the "kinda cruddy sequals" list. But after seeing 4 solo (mainly for the commentary) I really enjoyed it! Go figure. It sometimes pays to pick out a DVD from your stack and TRY to appreciate it.

    I'm gonna try Blair Witch tomorrow...though I'm not holding my breath since, unike Friday VI, I'VE HATED Blair Witch since seeing it theatrically.
