So surprise, surprise, the winner of this weekend’s box office is The Final Destination at #1 and H2 at #3.
I did get a chance to see H2 yesterday morning and well, I didn’t hate it but as expected it wasn’t great or anything special. I feel as though this movie really had no point in being made, but then again, I could say the same thing about The Final Destination.
I truly believe you can make any 3-D movie about people getting killed and hell yeah it’s going to be the #1 movie that weekend but it doesn’t quite mean it’s deserving. (Inglourious Basterds at #2 should have remained at 1 since it was so damn great!) But anyway, now on to H2.
I feel as though a lot of what was going on especially with scene with little Michael completely contradicted a lot of the little Michael in Zombie’s first Halloween. It didn’t fit for me. It was heartbreaking that the Loomis we all knew and loved in the original films has now been portrayed as a money-hunger asshole. And finally, the ghost mom stuff, it was really, really terrible. I understand forms of symbolize but there are so many subtle was to do it without coming off ridiculous and absurd.
I think Michael’s character was trying to be explained a bit more but it was just all garbage thrown together and lacking a sense of balance. All we really know is, Michael wants to kill his sister, we don’t really quite know why based on the original films but Zombie’s somewhat explanation didn’t really help. I’d rather never know then to accept what was given to me in that movie.
I can’t say to not see this for the reason for anyone that wants a mindless fun slasher flick, cool go see this, watch people get killed, rock on. I killed a morning seeing this and I don’t regret it but I didn’t get anything out it.
I’m hoping that Rob Zombie’s takes the hint and doesn’t continue on with anymore Halloween movies. There is news on the possibility of a Halloween 3….D. Yeah. I won’t explore that any further till I hear more. Also, word on the street is, he’s up to doing the next The Blob remake. *Sigh* I haven’t seen all of the original, I love the 80’s verison, I really don’t want to see a hick, red-neck, bum-fuck, hillbilly verison but fuck, well shall see where he goes with that.
