Default 'Friday the 13th (2009)' - High-Def Digest Review

Peter Bracke has reviewed the remake of 'Friday the 13th.' He says it's a disappointment that isn't even fun on its own terms. This Blu-ray features great video and audio and a few decent extras. Still, the killer cut just doesn't cut it.

Full review here:

I'll get a previously viewed copy from Blockbuster when it shows up. This was actually the first Jason movie I ever saw, other than the one with Freddy Kruger.

Umm the reviewer misses the whole point of Friday the 13th. You want the teens to die. They are forgetable and are supposed to be that way. You could tell from the first trailers when they used the body count that nobody was supposed to give a shit if anyone lived. I personally felt they made it a bit too much like the Texas Chainsaw remake though.

I have been a huge F13 fan for a LOOOONG time. Jason Voorhees is hands down my favorite slasher villain/monster/hero/etc of this genre. I looooved loved LOVED this movie. It was a great return to the original setting of Crystal Lake, and the original feeling of the silly 80s slasher genre. Much better than the last couple movies. I'll be picking this one up tomorrow for sure.

I liked the film but I wish it had more of a summer camp feel to it. But I am happy they rebooted this franchise because it brings a newer audience and not only that all the originals will eventually be on Blu-ray now.

I would say Peter has a pretty good idea of what he wants from Friday the 13th and what he's come to expect from the series all things considered.

I loved it and felt like Peter was a little harsh. Still a Michael Myers fan, but this refreshed Friday the 13the line for me.
