    I love both of them, but I'd pick Let Me In by a hair.


    Pacing was definitely better. Hated all the stuff with the neighbors in the original. Weighed down the film IMO.

      This is true.

      Overrated - Final Destination

      Underrated - Final Destination 5


      Put "2 Fast 2 Furious" in B&W and Se7en thinks he's watching a Bergman film.
      I find the Metal Gear Solid series to be mediocre at best.

        I wasn't really a fan of the original at all.

        It was on late one night and I watched it, I dunno, I was likely very tired, and it's slow, plodding pace was an issue to stay awake with, so maybe my memry of it isn't the best.

        But yeah, apart from some really awesome scenes, it was a big hunk of 'meh'.

            I agree with this.

            I enjoy the first film but the sequels (sans part 4) are much more entertaining to me.

            They took themselves less seriously and were just mindless fun.

                I think I've only seen the 1st final destination. Shit, I could've gotten the first 4 films today for $2.00
                Maybe it will still be there in a few weeks.

                  REC is praised to hell, and I do think it's claustrophobic, and tense, but I also think it's just more shaky bullshit. I agree about Stake Land, though.

                  I can't believe people think Willow Creek is good. There's like one long shot tense moment in the whole film. Blair Witch it is not.

                  Don't think too much of Pontypool, either. It was aight.

                    The second is my favorite of the bunch, but that seems to have a good reputation around here.

                    Wish they would make another.

                      Yeah the second one is my fave as well. The kills were insane in it.

                      I think they will. Sad 4 made more than 5.

                          Knowing Hollywood right now, it will probably be a reboot
