Random thought... Did anyone here ever end up actually using the Camp Crystal Lake patch? For that matterdoes anyone ever use the extra swag from releases like this? The collector in me won't allow it, but I'm curious if anyone else ever uses the included stuff? I have this set, the original pizza box TMNT set with cap, the video game "Catherine" with boxers etc and all of them sit in their boxes untouched. I know I'm unlikely to ever sell any of this stuff yet I can't bring myself to actually open or use it.
Wanted To Buy:
-Sword in the Stone Slip Cover ($7 Shipped)
-Robin Hood (Disney) (Slip Cover) ($7 Shipped)
(Will Pay $15 Shipped if One Person can send Both Slip Covers)

Apologies if asked before, but will these Double releases get a UK release? The 'Complete Collection' never did, so I'm guessing not

I usually don't touch the extra 'swag'...it mostly just stays in the box. I did however take out all of my Doctor Who seasons from the big collection and put them on the shelf with my other blu's. I then sold the Sonic Screwdriver for $100 on ebay. I would've never used that thing anyway, and the $100 helped off-set the cost of upgrading these seasons to blu.

Very happy about the double features coming, I can finally pick these up (all the horror stories about scratched discs in the set scared me off). And as a bonus, I can skip Jason Goes to Hell and the later films if I feel like it.

I keep the book outside of the tin and it's wrapped perfect with the "You're all doomed band". I'm pretty sure that is what it was intended for. I love it.

I use my tin for filing receipts and UV codes, I don't display it anywhere. Every once in a while I tell myself I'm going to add the patch on a shirt, but instead I spin Part IV.

Default Jason X and Jason GTH

Any updates does anybody know if they will be releasing Jason X and Jason GTH on blu ray? It looks like that one still isn't up I'm starting to think this is it we will get 10 movies on 5 double feature sets.

I watched the remake last night and it's a definite contender for my least favourite in the series, beating out Jason Takes Manhattan. I don't subscribe to the belief that a film needs to have 'likeable' characters, because I can think of plenty of great films with immoral ones, but I at least expect them to be interesting and charismatic. The ones in the Friday the 13th remake were just obnoxious beyond belief. Nice Girl and Supernatural Dude are alright, and Token Asian Guy has a couple of amusing lines, but that's the extent of it. I practically celebrated when folks got killed, although the scenes were so dimly-lit and poorly-shot that it was hard to tell what was going on. Jason had virtually no on-screen presence either. He was just boring. I got the impression that the filmmakers assumed the only reasons people watched the films were sex, drugs and violence and so turned everything up to 11, but they left out the atmosphere and decent characters in the process.

Remake aside, I really had a lot of fun making my way through the box set. I'm a big horror fan so I feel a little dirty having put off watching these for so long (I only watched the original film a few years ago), but I'm glad I finally did. As much as I enjoy the Halloween and Elm Street franchises, they do have a tendency to drag in the middle, especially having started on such a high thanks to the talents of Carpenter and Craven. With the Friday films, I found them more consistent quality-wise and each entry introduced something new and interesting. Whether they were successful or not, I was never bored. Jason Takes Manhattan and Jason Goes to Hell aren't high art but there's still something intriguing and enjoyable about both of them, in stark contrast to their likes of Myers and Freddy where their worst moments consist of the god-awful Halloween: Resurrection and Freddy's Dead, both of which border on unwatchable. Shame the remake had to leave things on a sour note but at least I can ignore it when I inevitably revisit the series.

Never understood the hate for Friday The 13th (2009). I loved it and I'll always treasure seeing it in a packed theater opening night. It had possibly the best audience reactions I've had seeing a film in theaters. Instead of people making noise and it being a detriment to the film, their reactions and timing were beneficial to the film.

I'll never forget when the opening pre-credits sequence (which is purported to be the longest in film history) ended and the title screen came up, the audience went absolutely wild with how awesome that was, and that was just the beginning.

When
[Show spoiler]the black guy one ups Jason and runs away, the audience cheered. Then Jason walks forward, picks up an axe,
everyone knew what was coming and was yelling for him to run (like a football game).
[Show spoiler]The axe was thrown and then everyone groaned with sorrow. The guy was still crawling, Jason was distracted,
and one guy in the audience was so into the film, just blurts aloud, "Run while you still can."

It's a wonderful modern celebration of the early Friday The 13th films and one of the very best of the franchise.

Yes!
Characters are insultingly unbearable. And there is nobody sympathetic to counter it (like Tina and her mom in The New Blood vs. Melissa and Dr. Crews).

I was talking to someone who has only seen the remake and she said she doesn't normally watch these types of movies, so she was surprised to find herself cheering for everyone to die.

My swag usually stays in the box, but I will put it to use occasionally. The first Ultraman Tiga DVD set came with a t-shirt that was worn (this also freed up space in the box for it to hold all four volumes). Figures and such are sometimes displayed on the movie shelf, space permitting. The F13 patch may well be used in a future Halloween costume.

That opening 20 minutes was absolutely priceless. I will give you that. If the whole movie could have held that tone it would have been perfect (I'd even be fine with an all sack-head Jason movie, as that is the Jason I prefer). The characters following that scene are what killed the momentum for me. They were so annoying (well, most of them). I actually liked Jared P. and his sister.

I actually like the remake (and Manhattan, not so much Hell), but your critiques do make sense. I actually very much agree with your comparison of the big 3 franchises, Friday is the most consistently entertaining and fun for me so that's why I put it on top. Besides the glorious kills and T&A, I just love the camp atmosphere of 1-7. I do love the suburban atmosphere of Halloween and Halloween II but that was never quite recaptured in the films following to my recollection. As for Nightmare, it was inventive but I remember the later sequels being boring often times. I'm really looking forward to rewatching all three series in October though.

As franchises go, I rank Halloween slightly higher than Friday because it has more "great" movies than the other. I still love both franchises immensely though.

Great Halloween films: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, RZHII.
Good Halloween films: 5, H20
Bad Halloween films: Resurrection, *RZH

Great Friday films: 1, 2, 4, 6
Good Friday films: 3, 7
Bad Friday films: *5, 8, JGTH, JX, *Remake

* - some parts are actually good

It improves upon the A/V quality of the previous MGM Blu-ray, preserves the best of the 2003 DVD extras, and adds great new material too. Donít miss it!
