I assure everyone I'm not trying to be a curmudgeon. But I've never been a fan of this series. The formulaic nature and irritating characters of the early entries really put me off. And even as a kid I didn't find any of these films remotely scary.
I've grown to enjoy four and six, pretty much polar opposites in terms of mood. I'm going with 6. The humor is less clunky than usual and the action is less focused on irritating teen cardboard cut-outs. And the parody elements make some of the usual stupidity go down a little easier.
