Jigsawisreal saidToday (friday August 28th 09) two horror franchises will be going head to head....Rob Zombie's Halloween 2 and The Final Destination 3D. Which do you think will lead as #1 at the box office this weekend? Which, if any, will you see?
I think H2 will lead for the first weekend and I might be able to see both, if I can't, then I will be seeing H2 on saturday.
WOW dude, you BEAT ME to the punch as I was just signing on to this site to post this exact same forum topic! LOL
I just saw Rob Zombie's HALLOWEEN II last night, & personally LOVED IT. Am excited to see both franchises, I've just been more AMPED for HALLOWEEN II than FD4 (the final destination). The Final Destination series pretty much are all elaborate "murder set pieces" - lacking plot/character/etc. Its moreso a "body count" film to see how each individual will meet death.
Whereas Rob Zombie's first initial HALLOWEEN remake from 2 years ago was indeed a cool film, it too had its share of probs (half rob zombie creation, half quick rushed remake!) ultimately at times making it messy (but NOT a mess) LOL
HALLOWEEN II, however, is a GRITTY, ULTRA VIOLENT & TRIPPY film. Sure, many HALLOWEEN afficinados' will be turned off at how different this entry is. However, if you're a Rob Zombie fan - you'll LOVE it. IMO, great use of cinematography in many scenes, great gritty use of 16mm film, very brutal violence (no joke guys!...people left the theater midway!) , & Rob Zombie's trade-mark "white trash" dialogue/bantering that litters his scripts is kept moreso minimum in this outing! The ending.....ehhhh....it is what it is. But, it makes sense I guess. What I respect the MOST - is Rob set to make HIS movie...NOT a movie for the producers/company, NOT what every halloween fan wanted/expected - he made HIS film. And this is Definently a Rob Zombie film. I do consider HALLOWEEN II to be his "Devils Rejects" to his "house of 1,000 corpses" .... if ya get.
But Heck! Out of the BAD Halloween entries that are out there (Halloween 8: Resurrection, Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers) - this one is NOT bad at all. Just not something you'd expect either!
Don't get me wrong, I find the FD series just as entertaining to the next, but I do prefer Rob Zombies input a bit more than a "gimmick" film.
One down, one to go....
I'm curious too of what Franchise will make it #1. Will it be Halloween II or TFD? Hmm..
But guess what guys!!!!! Now that Rob Zombie has wrapped up his Michael Myers mythos, he's now working on his $30 Million next project ---- his remake to THE BLOB!!!!
(SORRY for the LONG rant here...Deuces!)
