Friday the 13th Part 8: Jason Takes Manhattan, a review by addicted2dvd



Title: Friday the 13th Part 8: Jason Takes Manhattan
Movie Count: 97
TV Ep Count: 45
Other  Count: 2
Time Started: 8:30am
Plot:
The Big Apple's in big trouble, as indestructible psycho-fiend Jason Voorhees hits the road to New York City -- and paints the town "red."

After a shocking return from beyond the grave, the diabolical Jason ships out aboard a teen filled "love boat" bound for New York, which he soon transforms into the ultimate voyage of the damned. Then one of his terrified victims escapes into the nightmarish maze of Manhattan's subways and sewers, only to confront Jason one final time.

My Thoughts:
This is my least favorite of the F13 movies. I still find it worth watching... but I really didn't care much for Jason in New York. He just belongs in the woods! Though there was a part or two that was worth a good chuckle with him in the city. And I really didn't care the way they chose to end this one.

Plot:
Brittany Murphy (Don't Say a Word) and Dakota Fanning (I Am Sam) shine brighter than all the lights of Manhattan in this delightful New York fairy tale. Co-starring Marley Shelton (Never Been Kissed), Donald Faison ("Scrubs") and Heather Locklear ("Spin City"), Uptown Girls will make you laugh, cry... and laugh again!

Molly (Murphy) is a partying rock 'n' roll princess whose money just ran out. Ray (Fanning) is a fussy nine-year-old whose last nanny just ran out. Only Ray's way-too-busy mom (Locklear) could think that hiring Molly would be the perfect setup for both girls. But as this unlikely pair faces everything from control issues (Ray's, of course) to temper tantrums (Molly's, of course), they discover that sometimes, your best friend can come from the place you least expect!

My Thoughts:
Since I realized I enjoy the work of the late Brittany Murphy... I thought I would give this movie a chance. This is a Disc that I got yesterday in that big package of discs. Unfortunately this one didn't impress me as much as most her others. She was fine in it. The storyline has potential... but I just didn't care for the way it all came together. While I was able to watch the entire movie I struggled to keep interested in it. The film has some boring moments that I couldn't wait to end. It has some sad moments. And it has some fun moments. One thing it didn't have is any laugh-out-load funny moments. I would say this film is pretty much just an average fare. Definitely nothing to go out of your way to watch... but if you are bored one day and have it sitting around or can catch it on cable... it can be a decent way to waste an hour and a half.

Fear Itself Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Fear Itself: The Complete Series


9. Skin and Bones (Director's Cut)
When a rancher leading a hunting party returns home to his family after being lost in the mountains for days, he just doesn't seem the same. Soon, a terrible mortal struggle ensues against the terrifying monster possessing him.
Director: Larry Fessenden (The Last Winter, Wendigo)


Stars:
John Pyper-Ferguson
Molly Hagan
Doug Jones
Gordon Tootoosis
Brett Dier

My Thoughts:
This episode I enjoyed. I liked the story... they made the possessed guy look cool and creepy. And I liked how they ended the episode. It is episodes like this that makes me sorry this series was canceled so soon. The mother in this... Molly Hagan (Pictured above)... looked so familiar while watching this. But I just wasn't able to place where I knew her from. After the episode I checked to see what else I had her in... and she has appeared in single episodes of several TV Series I have. I guess that she looked familiar do to this.
