|30 5%||Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989) - Aug 22, 2019
"Lame and forgettable, even if you're able to separate it from any expectations based on the rest of the franchise, but it's even worse as a F13 movie. 1989 was a terrible year for franchise horror between Halloween 5 and Friday VII."
|60 20%||Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988) - Aug 22, 2019
"Great ending but the first hour is pretty throwaway. The kills are whatever except for the legendary sleeping bag. They just kind of happen out of nowhere with no connection to the rest of the story, which may seem like an obvious complaint for the series, but after Part VI it seems especially egregious."
|80 53%||Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986) - Aug 22, 2019
"Haven't completed the franchise yet, but I'll be surprised if by the end I don't think of this one as the definitive entry. Better than the first?, I don't know, but definitely the best one with Jason as a villian. The beginning is spectacular. Jason is finally a good villain. The kills are plentiful and done well. There aren't a ridiculous number of unmotivated sex scenes. Camp Crystal Lake is back (at least in exterior shots). Alice Cooper. Even the self-referential humor is done pretty well."
|70 34%||Friday the 13th: A New Beginning (1985) - Aug 21, 2019
"A new beginning indeed. Gone is the gritty realism of parts 1 and 2, and the campy humor of parts 3 and 4. Now we have nothing but coked-out madness. Watching parts 1 and 5 back to back would be a similar tonal shift as Texas Chainsaw 1 to 2. Despite all the sex and violence of the series thus far, part 5 feels exceptionally vulgar and crass and just generally unhinged in comparison. Easily the best in the series since the original. Apparently all the best F13 movies don't have Jason in them."
|90 76%||Shrek (2001) - Aug 19, 2019
"Just because it ruined at least a decade of subsequent animation (by inspiring terrible wannabe imitations) doesn't mean it isn't awesome."
|65 27%||Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984) - Aug 15, 2019
"Moving out of the grindhouse and more towards the mainstream, Joseph Zito and Corey Feldman almost bring a bit of respectability to the franchise. The direction is pretty good and the kills are too, but there's way too much sex and not enough atmosphere."
|45 10%||Friday the 13th Part III (1982) - Aug 15, 2019
"Once again Steve Miner has delivered a bland and unmemorable experience, a fact nearly as shocking as this film, which is to say not at all. The kills are much better than in Part II, but that's about the only nice thing I have to say about Part III. The 3D is obnoxiously bad. The set is the most forgettable yet. The acting is worse than ever. Fat kid is majorly annoying. It's got a bit of camp value where the first two were played straight, but nowhere near that of Sleepaway Camp."
|90 76%||The Manchurian Candidate (1962) - Aug 15, 2019|
|80 53%||Laurin (1989) - Aug 09, 2019
"The dub is awful and what little of a plot exists is incoherent, but the production design is amazing."
|85 64%||Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019) - Aug 04, 2019
"Best effort from Quantum Tortellini in a while. Too many feet though."
