  1. Ghostbusters

    The reboot fell very flat with the humor. Not once did I laugh and it was never scary like the original two could be as well.
  2. Indiana Jones

    I wonder if we'll get any news on the fifth one in the coming months after Ready Player One (which is looking great so far). With two years to go I'd imagine pre-production will begin pretty soon on it.
  3. Series You Rank In Release Order

    Poltergeist is nearly one for me, except for the very controversial opinion of liking the second one the best, though I do consider the first two equally good. Such a shame the third is so sub-par and feels largely unfinished and rushed. Which is largely due to the unfortunate passing of Heather O'Rourke before it even finished filming.
  4. Series You Rank In Release Order

    Toy Story is one that could go in RO for me, I've yet to see the sequels and haven't seen the original since childhood. The consensus seems to be they're all good but the third the least so, which doesn't say much. I recently DVR them all and I plan to watch them all soon, should be enjoyable.
  5. Best Film In a Horror Series

    Would Jurassic Park count as Horror? In a way the series sort of is, more Sci-Fi/Adventure but there's definitely a strong Horror aspect to them, I think. The upcoming new sequel, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom looks distinctively more Horror-oriented than the prior films. In any case, the original film is easily the best by a landslide.
  6. Indiana Jones

    I never minded her, though I can understand why some might find her annoying.
  7. Ghostbusters

    I rented the reboot from my library but unfortunately the copy I got was bad and stopped playing mid-way through, after the concert sequence. I hate when that happens. I'll probably just try to catch it on Netflix when I start my free trial soon, as I plan to to watch Stranger Things Season 2 there. What I saw of it, well, it wasn't as bad as expected but not good, either. Jokes fell flat, no scares or humor as with the first two, visuals and ghost designs are very cartoony-looking unlike those of the first two where they looked real. When it came to the new characters, I find I actually didn't mind Erin or Jillian, but could've easily done without the other two. The rampant stereotyping was pretty annoying and even insulting in some instances. I feel I can't fairly rate it as I haven't finished watching it, but so far I'm not impressed at all, though it also wasn't nearly as bad as expected.
  8. Saw

    Any fans of the Saw films here? The series gets a lot of hate, most of which IMO is undeserved as it's a strong series for the most part. I think the "torture porn" label it's frequently slapped with is undeserved as the first two or so movies have very little in the way of graphic violence and were more about the psychological mindgames. Unfortunately the third film veered the series into splatter territory, but some of the sequels after it, namely Saw VI and recent eighth chapter Jigsaw, were quite good. You can rank them as well if you'd like. My ranking goes: 2 1 6 8 5 4 7 3
  9. Series You Rank In Release Order

    I've never seen the Psycho films barring the fourth film, which was actually a prequel. Yep, a major Horror fan like myself has gone all these years not seeing the original Psycho, but I will remedy that someday. My main exposure to all things Norman Bates has been the excellent Bates Motel TV show. From what I've seen of the consensus, it seems pretty agreed that the film series is one that declined with each subsequent film.

    I get the TCM channel as well from my cable provider, so catching what they air is easy for me. I've got some of their airings before.

    I'm not familiar with films and series from those eras, but you're more than welcome to add any if you'd like
  12. Series You Rank In Release Order

    I don't dislike the Star Wars prequels like many others do although I share the consensus they aren't as good as the original classic three.
  13. Series You Rank In Release Order

    Another I thought of that could well go in descending order for me (when I see the remainder of the series) is The Crow. Only saw the original which is a favorite of mine, and the sequels all seem to be poorly received with only the third getting the occasional decent comment or rating. Highlander could be another. I've only seen the original, again, a favorite of mine. The sequels are all terribly received and while the second film seems to be regarded as the worst, occasionally I've seen the others rated lower. It seems with both The Crow and Highlander, the originals are the only ones that matter.
  14. Ghostbusters

    Also for anyone else who's a fan of GB2, here's this entertaining I-Mockery.com article written for it a few years back. Definitely an enjoyable read if you like the sequel, as I always have. Seems in more recent times it's gotten a somewhat better reception.
  15. Ghostbusters

    It looked terrible from the previews and not even like it was a parody, more like a mockery of the first two movies and missed the boat as to what made them work so well. And I'm not against having female Ghostbusters at all but the way the new film went about it it was in such a gimmicky, insulting way that if anything re-enforced stereotypes about women rather than presenting a strong, positive portrayal of them.
