Day 20: A great remake

I have two I could choose here:

The Friday the 13th remake wasn't the perfect remake fans were hoping for, but I think it is better than a lot of people give it credit for. I like it, and I definitely thinks it is better than some of the later F13 sequels. Yes, I'm talking about you, Jason Takes Manhattan!

The House of Wax remake gets scoffed at and I really don't know why! Yes, Paris Hilton is in it, but she gets offed in a very satisfying way. And the rest of the film is just creepy greatness. Quite good!


  1. you are invited to follow my blog

  2. Wha...? What were your criteria??

  3. Steve - Thanks, but I'm good.

    Gore-Gore Girl - Er, that I liked them?

  4. While I wouldn't go so far as to say that F13 was a "great remake", I also wouldn't go so far as to say that it was a "terrible remake" (as many people are quick to accuse). It was decent--much better than the oh-so-emo rendition of Nightmare on Elm Street--and could just as easily have passed as a modern sequel to the original franchise, had it been marketed that way.


  5. i think it was a great remake because it gave it the grittiness the original lacked , and house of wax was well done the crazy glue scene was real crazy glue on her lips she wanted it to look did lol
