    Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter

    ★★★★★

    The pinnacle of the Friday the 13th series. Whether it's Crispin Glover being as crazy, and as uniquely interesting, as he can possibly be or the films deep commentary on myth building, this is the moment the franchise built to. Every time I watch this I enjoy myself in every way, often more critically than commercially. Oh Jason, what greatness did you bring upon the world!

    ★★★

    An interesting approach, but one that ultimately gets bogged down in too much minutiae. The story is a good one, the intrigue is present. The filmmakers do a pleasant job of setting things up, but the more they get into the details of the events the less focused the film feels. It becomes almost sprawling and opulent, the opposite of what a film of this nature should be. Still, it's good more often than it is not.

    ★★★★★

    The build and the denial is still remarkable. Ti West knows what the audience wants, and he continually builds to what they want but refuses to give it to them. Then when he finally does the release is intense. Splendidly crafted, acted, filmed, just all the stars.

    ★★★★★

    Chillingly distant, yet resonantly warm, the paradox of the duality of humanity on display for all to see. Full review can be found at Bill's Movie Emporium.
