I don't feel like drinking. The others are out clubbing but I didn't feel like that, either.

I saw the trailer for Final Destination 5 and could only imagine that lasik surgeons are ****** about it; there's enough paranoia on the whole 'zomg lasers shooting into your eyes' without a movie turning it into a horror plot.

Such a bad movie, honestly...
Well, first one was ok. Second and third were horrible. I stopped watching there.

I haven't watched any of them. What does that make me?

Also, I've discovered that my... non-Andrew pursuit has watched a lot less series than me. That's something that never happens.

I find the Final Destination movies entertaining. It's not the kind of movies that make you reflect a lot on your existence, etc., but they're entertaining in a grisly way. Like the Saw movies.

What I find hilarious is that the last one was "THE Final Destination" and now they are coming out with ANOTHER one. Like, no, you don't get to do that. >:(

And they really are awful. The entire movie (any of them) is just you waiting to see how they die. That's it.

That's... really f*cking lame.

Still not as bad as The Strangers though. Or Funny Games.

The first one is the best, as with most movies. The first one had a pretty interesting premise and it wasn't as gory as the later ones. Like with the Saw movies, the franchise turned into a freak show competition. Yes, people die in the first movie, but it's not the "here's a character, now she's dead in a gruesome way - oh, and you can see her ************* storyline of the others.

Still, it's a horror movie.

Problem with horror movies is when they forgo being horror movies and just follow a formula and end up just being essentially the exact same thing, with the deaths/gore being the only difference. First Saw movie was awesome, the rest were meh at best. Final Destination 1 was ... okay it was watchable, and I can't think of an insulting enough term for the rest.

So instead of all that, here's some music.

Oh, I just remembered I actually did see the first two, just completely forgot about them because they were of so little interest. Heh.

I still prefer to watch Horror movies from the 70s/80s. Sure, the special effects are laughable now, but they actually build a tense, suspenseful film experience. The original Amityville Horror is probably my favorite horror film, followed by a tie between The Exorcist and Halloween.

I was enjoying the Halloween remake until I got close to the end, where Michael Myers seems to care about his sister. Umm, no, the only thing he cares about is shoving his knife into her heart. Smiley: disappointed I didn't really like them showing his time spent in the asylum as a kid either, but that at least made him out to be a psychopath incapable of love. Also, the whole "I'm inhumanly strong" thing was hard to take. No, sorry, I don't believe he just ripped apart that chain...

But yeah, modern horror movies largely suck. It's like they've forgotten the importance of getting the audience tense and fearful merely by ambiance. And that's really important, imo, to making a horror movie actually scary. Just making things jumpy/bloody? Nah.

Alien was pretty good too, but is really different from the rest. They make use of making you jump more than the rest, but they never do it solely for the sake of making you jump. They actually played with you in that movie, by creating many moments where you suspect something to jump out where nothing happens. It made the actual moments more tense, imo.

Totally agree Digg. I really don't watch horror movies anymore because they simply aren't scary. The one I've seen in recent years that scared me was Quarantine. And what was odd was that I didn't really get scared until the very end of the movie. For some reason that last scene freaked me out hardcore. Gore is easy. And it isn't scary at all, it's just gross.

Halloween was boring. The part where he stalks her in the end - easily the worst pacing of any horror movie. Completely deflates the tension.

The original Night of the Dead was horrible as well. Guy gets shot in the head - cut to credits.

I like my classics as much as the next guy, but old horror movies make me cringe. Usually the music score is way too bombastic as well. Loud and horrible.

I felt like that stalking scene was one of the best parts, really. Because you are legitimately hoping she lives, and want her to get away. He poses a constant threat at that point.

Dunno if it's the stalking scene I'm thinking about. I'm thinking of the one where she goes to school, walks home, talks to friends, drives in a car and nothing happens. A good 15-20 minutes of movie time where literally nothing happens except for some moments where you might be afraid that he's hiding behind a hedge, but it turns out to be nothing.

Granted, it was late at night when I watched it, but I remember switching channels because it was so oddly boring in the middle of a horror movie. Came back a while later and she was still just walking around in the neighborhood.
