Friday the 13th Part III

Friday the 13th Part III ★★★

Watched on Amazon Prime.

A lot of people give this film flack for leaning so heavily on its shameless 3D gimmicks, but personally I never found them to be distracting or overly indulgent. If anything, you can just look at them as more abstract choices on the part of the cinematographer. This is also the most fun film of the F13 franchise yet, with the most unabashedly "goofy" tone and sensationalized kills. Jason becomes the Jason we know and love here; characters are as loathsome as ever but at least they feel a little more three-dimensional than the characters in the first two. Solid popcorn flick.
