    Are people voting for H2 just based on the unrated home video cut?

    I hated H1, but I went to see H2 in the theater for some reason and I came away admiring it. Sure it was a bad movie, but it was a singular, batshit-crazy vision that was never not interesting. It's Rob Zombie at his purest auteur form. Of course it's a mess, but it's also a complete F-U to the studio and everyone else. Next to H1 it is a masterpiece of avant garde cinema.

    Spoken for the truth.

    A lot of hate I notice comes from people not wanting to like something with a white horse. Which is weird, right?

    I think the director's cut is the best. Definitely avant garde, and in the better half of the series. His first Halloween though? Awful. But not H20/Res awful.

    H20, followed by Halloween II, which is only slightly more tolerable due to the presence of Pleasence.

    I've still only seen the theatrical version and I liked it quite a bit for all the reasons you describe. I was disappointed that the theatrical cut wasn't on this new set.

    I kinda liked H2 because it was so different. The thing I hated most about the first RZ flick was the whole chunk of the first half dedicated to his formative years--the absence of this aspect immediately makes the second film better.

    Resurrection takes the prize, hands down. Not even a competition. I absolutely abhor Zombie's films, but they're cinematic gold when compared to Resurrection.

    I'd have to agree with this. The second film got down to business. I hated that backstory stuff whenever it crept in, though.

    Rob Zombie's H2 is a cinematic abortion. Any version of it is dog shit on the bottom of my shoes. I'll take Resurrection over it any day.

    Has anybody had chance to see both versions of the Curse of Michael Myers on the new complete collection? Which is best?

    I'm not a fan of Curse any way you cut it. No matter how many ways you cut a piece of shit, it's still a piece of shit, but the Producer's Cut, in my opinion, wins out just for doing away with that grinding metal guitar score and uses the more traditional Halloween score which automatically makes it better in my book. The story, however, is still mind numbingly bad. The whole Jamie having Michael's baby thorn bullshit is just embarrassing and Farrands should never be allowed anywhere near the Halloween franchise again. Let's face it, it was so bad that they started over for Christ's sake.

    I prefer the p-cut. Better score, characterization, suspense and best of all, much more Dr. Loomis. He has some great scenes and moments, all of which are missing in the theatrical cut.

    Complete agreement: incest has no place in this franchise. EVER.

    I think he's referring to the opening scene where Michael stares at and stabs his topless sister.

    If by "stretch" you mean "literally the subtext laid on with the subtlety of a frying pan hitting you on the face throughout the movie" then yes.
