  1. I though it was pretty crazy that when the sheriff and his deputies arrive at the camp his first order is “don’t wake the kids.” Motherfucker, there is a sadistic monster on the loose brutally murdering every person that crosses his path! You wake those kids up and get them the Hell out of there!
  2. Yay! I was going to pick this, but I decided at the last second that a vampire musical was the way to go I haven’t had a chance to watch it this year either so this gives me an excuse!
  3. Seeing Jason become ambulatory after a lightning strike reminds me of 19th century galvanism and how parading corpses across Europe and shocking them with electric currents to make them twitch for the gawking throngs was once a real, popular, and extremely macabre pastime. A contemporary source, describing the process being applied to the recently executed murderer, George Foster, once wrote: “On the first application of the process to the face, the jaws of the deceased criminal began to quiver, and the adjoining muscles were horribly contorted, and one eye was actually opened. In the subsequent part of the process the right hand was raised and clenched, and the legs and thighs were set in motion.” Of course, it was these types of experiments that eventually inspired Mary Shelly to write Frankenstein which subsequently led to the whole concept of a lightning strike imbuing a corpse with new life. It’s a trope that’s become pervasive, and it’s incredibly bizarre to me how we all just sort of readily accept it. Anyway, I don’t suppose any of this is terribly relevant to the movie, but I can never pass up an opportunity to point out just how absolutely fucked up and ghoulish our ancestors were.
  4. So, for any one wondering, according to what I could determine through online research, the amount of force it would take to punch straight through a person’s chest and rip out their heart is approximately 50kN (kilonewtons). To put this into perspective, this is about ten times the force exerted by a professional boxer - who average about 5kN per punch - and over twice that of the bite of a Great White Shark (18kN). Furthermore, it would take nearly 1,100 lbs of pressure (far greater than mortal man is capable) to crush a human skull in one’s barehands, and depending on the situation, leverage, and torque, it would take anywhere from 30-200kN to rip a person’s arm from its socket. All this is to say, Jason’s a pretty bad motherfucker. Especially for someone who was, until very recently, a desiccated corpse.
  5. In the climactic showdown, Tommy and his boulder have rowed out to the middle of the lake and have challenged Jason to a final confrontation. Jason, recognizing that he must either accept this affair of honor or forfeit his rights as a gentleman, is quick to oblige and underwater strides his zombie ass to face his foe. As he breathlessly awaits Jason's arrival, Tommy sets the lake ablaze and scans the water for any ripple of movement. After interminable seconds, a flurry of bubbles break the surface of the flaming lake and Tommy leans over the port side of his vessel and prepares his noose. However, both he and the audience are taken by surprise by Jason when he springs up not from the port side, but from from the starboard side of the boat! This is, of course, a classic and well executed misdirect on Mr. Vorhees' part. However, I can't help but wonder what caused the torrent of bubbles to break the surface of the water in the first place. I mean, he can't possibly be in two places at once. Without any other explanation put forth by the film, I can only assume that from beneath the boat Jason was laying down some strategic, underwater farts in order to distract Tommy and get the drop on him. The full extant of Jason's powers are never truly explored, but I think that it is safe to assume that tactical, supernatural flatulence must be a part of his arsenal.

    Jason’s misuse of “Nonplussed”

  7. I don’t think I’ve ever heard the word “snooker” used so frequently in all my life....
  8. 100% agree. Demon Days is one of those rare perfect albums from T to B.
  9. Song 2, I feel like, was such a curse for them. It’s a good song, but really unlike their other stuff.

    This looks, uh, pretty good...
  11. Awww...go on! My thoughts on Oasis...I love them! I have all of their albums. My favorites are their final three: Heathen Chemistry, Don’t Believe the Truth, Dig Out Your Soul. I still follow Wings, er, I mean, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. I’m not really into Liam’s solo stuff. That being said, I think Blur was always far more interesting musically. I found the whole “new Beatles” label that Oasis tried to push would have been far better suited to Blur. Oasis was more superficially Beatles-y whereas I felt Blur better embodied the innovative spirit of The Beatles. I don’t think it always worked, but there was an attempt with Blur to push the envelope. Oasis, especially early in their career, just cribbed Beatles lyrics and played them through distorted guitars.

    I don’t think you have to be completely scentless, just don’t be overpowering with it. I like what @taylorannephoto brought up, where the scent is almost hidden. I’m also of @Elektra Boogaloo’s mind in that the scent is for me more than anything - especially when it comes to shampoos and body washes. No one is going to smell my honey scented body wash but me, you know? As far as colognes and perfumes go, I personally don’t wear any (sometimes aftershave), but a subtle scent can be very attractive in moderation.
  13. I think he did use it when he was talking to TO over the corpse of his father..? He pots a couple of balls with his mind or something. I mean, I thought it was his dead father doing it at the time, but I guess not.
  14. He certainly had some telekinesis...but that's mo match for a good old fashioned bullet.
  15. I'm not sure how many of you are into Brit Pop, but not only was Phil Daniels (Billy Kid) in the movie adaptaion of The Who's Quadrophenia, he is featured heavily on the Blur song "Parklife.”
  16. Actually, I agree. While, I’m not going to lie, it took me a while to get through it, I did have a grudging respect for it. You don’t really get movies like this, not just anymore, but even then. It was just so absurd.
  17. You’ve got to respect a movie whose title and opening score makes you feel like you’re about to sit down and play an old school SNES game...

    I had no idea that Clue had such a vibrant and thriving extended universe.

    Yeah, I was pretty blown away when he said he didn’t like it. I thought Clue was pretty much universally beloved. I know I quote it all the time.

    If you need a license to drive a car, than you should need one to aromatize!

    That’s how I feel. I was going to say exactly, “It shouldn’t be smelled unless someone is kissing your neck.” It should be a more intimate thing. The problem is when people douse themselves. That’s not right.
