You actually take the time to talk to everybody after the movie is over? Because I have a hard time believing that anybody who hated the movie would stick aound once the credits roll. And if you stayed and watched the Bruce bit, then you most likely found yourself among like minded people. That wouldn't be a accurate tally of popular opinion, because the naysayers were long gone. Just sayin'.

I have a harder time believing the people having a good time in the theater were not, in fact, having a good time, as you are trying to assert in your continued efforts to trash this movie, maybrick.

I'm not asserting anything other than enter the possibility that perception doesn't necessarily equal reality. I'm not trying to trash this movie (in fact I'm not even talking about the Evil Dead specifically, but the movie going experience in general), I'm simply stating the truth: Just because you have some people vocal enough to voice their love of the film does not in any way mean that it was universally loved in the theater you were in. All it means is that those people are drowning out the other people who are willing to suffer through the movie in silence.

Same here. I was in a small screening and was sitting at the back. No one left the theatre till it was finished and I heard people in the lobby chatting about it saying they liked it. It seemed very apparent they enjoyed it.

I'm actually not the biggest fan of ED 2 & 3 but I do enjoy them.

They've hinted at it in the past but this is an official statement isn't it? If Raimi says it is actually happening then I believe that to be true. This is the first time he has said "yes" as opposed to beating around the bush.

It's exciting that both the old and new films are getting sequels.

Why am I not excited? For starters, anyone expecting a new ED film to be just as good as the original is dreaming. Raimi has become so Hollywoodized that anything he makes today won't be recognizable as a Raimi film unless it's 90% CGI, has a minimum budget of $100 million and features a cast of impossibly gorgeous young nobodies. Another thing is I've been hearing these rumors for years so by now I could care less if they go through with it or not.

I would welcome another Sam Raimi Evil Dead flick but I doubt it's in the works.
