    But you made 1 fatal mistake. You mistook a lack of empathy for others for an apathy toward caricatures of people like Natas, Twister, you, and more often than not maybrick and baggio (not that I have anything against the latter two) (seriously, I regularly both enjoy and LIKE-vote their posts because I believe in expressing true impartial opinions when they count; both of them tend to post the only substantial content here other than moderators like Paff). Ask anyone else who I've had arguments with in the last couple months. I've made sure to speak with them privately and talk things over / settle the problem. Because that's where I take personal stuff. I don't like airing that out on the board and I've said this a hundred times. I like to stick to the topic.

    The last thing I am is "ultra"confident. If I was, I would have kept up my old behavior from years past. Did you notice that I actually dropped the sports argument I had with Paff? And the sexism argument I had with X-human? And I never replied to Natas about The Evil Dead remake. I let things drop all the time. Why? Because I don't care. I tried to argue points and when I know they won't be listened to, I stop bothering. I might post a meme or two but even then I usually refrain from posting half the things that pop into my head. I know it's no use- this place has turned into a breeding ground for stupid behavior where people like you ignore my points of argument in favor of upping drama and slinging personal insults. Of course, it's always the same drama: easy targets. In a clear attempt to get them to respond in-kind. But even then, I drop that too eventually because I don't have time for that shit anymore. I barely come here anymore. Or, haven't you noticed? You can't be bothered to get your facts straight.

    And I'm not alone. I've been having private conversations with several board members who agree that when you try to talk depth and have a differing opinion from whoever's leading the discussion (like they're taking status quo polls, so they can yell at whoever's not falling-in-line with the majority), you're immediately criticized about everything from "thinking about the movie too deeply" to post length to sentence structure to paragraph structure/length. And no one ever goes after those assholes (*cough* Natas *cough*).

    Who the fuck do you think you're kidding? This board is a zoo with or without me here.

    When I get mad (so much for being fragile), I tend to forget about the board's best people. (Same with Matt89 and everyone else I'm forgetting.)

    But then I also wanted to not taint you with this stupid drama.

    Everyone knows I have my hitlist.

    He mentioned my parents recently in a post without my persmission- and my mother did in fact just die a year ago last week. I was in the mood to kick him while he was standing around, not expecting it.

    All I did was disagree with a statement you made about the F13 franchise. I guess my "Fuck you talking about" comment was rude to a degree, but holy fuck did it need to go there? Never got personal, but you felt the need to go THAT far and mention your deceased mother? Jesus christ dude, my mistake for engaging with you.

    Both JGTH and Jason X are fun.

    That is all.

    JGTH picks up at the end but Jason X is much more silly fun the whole way through.

    I watched the middle part of the remake on TV with sound on and off. I still don't like it. I'll try one more time with the Killer Cut one day.

    When I defended Hellgate, I remember someone here pointed out that I tend to "like" horror movies on a wackier spectrum... Yet when I say Jason Goes to Hell is shit, people don't take that as a sign.

    And, I'm a 90's nostalgic. Yet... no love for this movie. (Again... not the tiniest of red flags seem to be popping up here.)

    All I can say to try and figure this out is that the board also seemed pretty extremely divided on the issue of Ghoulies. Perhaps somewhere in that series' transition from 80's to 90's, we find a concrete example of the entire genre splitting between stupid-wacky and clever-wacky.

    JGTH is shit - it's awful. At least the unrated version has more of the only good scene in the movie. I do like Jason X.

    So it seems we won't be getting another remake or sequel anytime soon then... That sucks.
