    Well if he knows how to hold back his teeth, might just feel like a hairy beaver...

    Oh come on, admit it guys, when you see a glory hole you're just two steps away from saying, "What the hell." and shoving your dick in there. A hole's a hole. :D

    Both are getting awful reviews with Final Destination sounding like the more boring of the two. I will be going to see Halloween 2 either this weekend or next with some friends that want to go otherwise I probably would have waited for the dvd to give it a rent. My expectations will be low going in so maybe ill be surprised-The remake of Halloween I was split on - hated the prequal portion and enjoyed the actual remake portion.
    With that said I am still tempted to see Final Destination in the theatre because of the 3-D element- I really liked the original and part two was watchable. So if this one seems watchable the 3-D could drag me to the theatre.

    Neither. I've only cared to see the first Final Destination film, and I turned off Zombie's Halloween 45 minutes into it. I'm going to spend my money at the bar tonight instead.

    Exactly. I will be going to see Final Destination (Although it may now wait until later this week) as it's a movie that you have to see in theaters as I'm sure the 3-D at home will be pretty crappy. MBV 3D was okay on Blu I guess, but still nothing compared to the experience at the theatre! That and I really enjoyed the earlier three movies from the series. Don't know what everyone is complaining about? They are fun movies with creative and gory deaths, what more do you want? They are no different/ worse then all the cheesy 80s sequels that were too more of the same.

    Halloween 2 I have no interest in. I have no problems with Rob Zombie as I have somewhat enjoyed all of his movies to a point, but this one just sounds terrible. I might check it out when it hits home video as I'm sure it may be a decent horror film, but a Halloween film it is not. Why bother calling it Halloween if you are going to take out all the things that make the series what it is. That and I'm getting sick of his white trash dialogue and characters. Just because it worked for two of his movies doesn't mean it needs to be in all of them. I cringe at the thought of him remaking The Blob. I have a feeling it will be hitting a trailer park this time.

    Saw Final Destination with my Husband Friday Night, and it cost $13.00, which is a little excessive, and then they want you to put your glasses in a box so they can recycle them. Then, tonight I watched Rob Zombie's Unrated Halloween 3-Disc DVD, and I am going to see Halloween 2 tomorrow.

    According to IMDB, both TFD and Inglorious Basterds beat H2 at the box office...with H2 doing 17 million and "failing to come close to the franchise restarter."

    I'd say H2 still did pretty good all things considered. Had the Weinstein's not been a bunch of goofs in putting H2 up against a high profile 3-D horror flick as well as INGLORIOUS BASTERDS, which basically commands the same male audience, they definitely would have seen a better number. When you take into account the higher cost of 3D tickets, H2 and TFD aren't too far apart in terms of actual attendance.

    Rhett, why do you have to ruin our happiness with logic?

    I actually ended up seeing District 9 today instead of either of these- but I have plans to see H2 next weekend.

    Yeah sad but true it was still a success. It only cost $15 million to make so it has already made $2 million in profits.

    What's the logic in not releasing a movie called "Halloween" during the month of October?

    Is there higher-profile competition that month?

    saw both for free, would recommend final destination as a fun time, and halloween as a sharp reminder of why, exactly, rob zombie sucks.
