Hmm, maybe that came out wrong.
:lol:That was half intended. I can't help myself sometimes.
It's all good.
conversations about re-makes make me chuckle a little bit. Especially when people get so bent out of shape about how much better the original one was. I used to be that way but now I've distanced myself from the originals when I goto see a remake. I think of it as a whole new movie and they are usually great. Makes me wonder what people who saw the original of "The Thing" when it was released thought of John Carpenter's re-make. I know most people on here would consider it one of the best.
I feel the same way. I have enjoyed most of the remakes, the only one that I have really disliked so far is The Fog, and not because the original was so much better, but because the remake as a movie was just so bad.
The official press release for the His Name is Jason documentary says that the DVD will come with a free Hollywood Movie Money ticket to see the remake. (The tickets are valid for U.S. theaters only.)
So if you want the DVD and don't want to shell out money to see the remake, there's a way around it.
Thanks for the heads-up. I will probably skip it anyway, since it looks like the atrocity that was the TCM remake. But if I am feeling especially self-defeating, I may venture to the multiplex if I can see it for free.
BTW, are we still hearing that the doc is kinda sucky or what?????
i take it no one has looked at the pic of Jason w/ the bag on his head...
I haven't heard anything about how good/bad the documentary is. But Farrands was responsible for providing archival footage for Halloween: 25 Years of Terror and produced A Haunting in Connecticut.

If you live in CA (and live near/in Burbank), it's going to be great. Although I wish Robert Englund was there...
OMG! The thought of Andrea Martin and that thing that was the killer's mother.
hey, some cool new photos are on shocktillyoudrop for the new Friday the 13th movie
I'll be at the Dark Del signing. It should be a lot of fun.
Additionally, New Line has updated the movie site with some new backgrounds and downloads. It also confirms the R-rating by the MPAA, for "strong bloody violence, graphic sexual content, language and drug material."
a great review of the UNCUT DVD/Blu-Ray is now up on Shocktillyoudrop.com
Nice review but...
2.35:1? I'm guessing that's a typo, right?
Looks like they are including most of the stuff from the box set on the Blu Ray. I wonder if part two and three will continue this trend, as it would be nice to ditch the old box set!

already talk of an extended dvd plans
Astute fans who head into the theater to see Friday the 13th (set visit) on February 13th may notice current television spots are featuring footage not in the final cut - obvious signs there will be much to see when the reboot, directed by Marcus Nispel, hits DVD later this year. Co-producer Andrew Form of Platinum Dunes shed some light what fans can expect.
"There will be an extended, unrated cut of the movie that's ten minutes longer," he says, "a couple of deleted scenes and a couple of alternate scenes. There will be an alternate ending as well."
We caught a screening of Friday the 13th last night in Hollywood and will have a review in the near future. Keep it here for plenty of more coverage over the next two weeks!
My friend went to the press screening on Fri (I was invited but couldn't make it) and he said it's ok, but nothing special. He told me the opening was pretty strong but the rest of the film just got progressivly more boring. He even said the kills, which are a unique staple of the series, were bland. I'll wait until I see it to reserve judgment, but we usually agree on horror so I'm lowering my expectations a bit.
