    Seeing as the original and sequel both turn 35 and 30 respectively next year, I'm hard-pressed to believe nothing special is planned for the anniversary.
  2. Think I may have mentioned Jurassic Park before. Not sure if it count as Horror. I consider the series Horror-y in a way. In any case, the original is very easily the best. The upcoming Fallen Kingdom looks to embrace the more Horror and monster movie aspects of the series.
  3. Despite being a long-time Horror fan, I've yet to see Psycho. My sole exposure to it was the fourth film and the excellent Bates Motel TV show. I'm long overdue to see the original for sure.
  4. Hatchet is another I remembered. I recently blind bought the third and fourth movies. I've only seen the first two so far. I remember finding the first one meh and thinking the second was much better. It'd be good to binge all four sometime soon. I hope 3 and 4 are as good as the second one was, at least.
  5. I didn't really much like Jurassic World at all and felt it strayed too far from what made the original work. But it did seem the most Horror-like of the series so far.
  6. Saw the new Insidious last month and it was good, although Chapter 3 is still my favorite. I think this one is my second favorite thinking it over. I've enjoyed them all so far and welcome a fifth.
  7. And low and behold, news came out recently that Indy 5 is being eyed as one of Spielberg's next movies. Excited we're finally getting some solid news on it.

    I thought GB2 worked largely the same way the first one did, managing to be both funny and scary, and Vigo was a far more memorable villain than the reboot's was. I struggle to even remember who he was or what his motivation was.

    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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. I never minded her, though I can understand why some might find her annoying.

    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 di

    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
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. I'm not familiar with films and series from those eras, but you're more than welcome to add any if you'd like
  20. 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.
  21. 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 th

    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.

    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.
