    That's all subjective to opinion, but BD is literally the only place I've seen as of late that's still harsh towards Rob's H2. Everywhere else everyone has calmed down & I've talked to a lot of people who used to hate it, and now they love it.

    Rob's H2 is most certainly better than the original HII. I mean, sure, the original HII is a classic, but it has way more flaws than Rob's H2. It completely misses the point of the original while taking up the level of gore to follow F13th, & it introduces a very poor storyline that John Carpenter himself admitted only came about because he was drunk & didn't know what to write.

    I understand why people don't like Rob's H2: because it's different, but these are the same people who were clamoring for something new to be done. This is the only movie that makes sense of the brother/sister story angle while adding more depth to both Laurie & Michael instead of him being the terminator he was in the sequels where he was more or less a bad Voorhees clone.

    Haha, didn't mean to ramble, but that's just my two cents on the whole shit. I'm not a fanboy by any means, but from a fan's perspective as well as a filmmaking perspective, I don't see anything horrible about Zombie's H2.

    As for TCM, out of the three recent installments, the remake is the only one that's going to be remembered in twenty or thirty years. One day everybody's going to go "Texas Chainsaw 3D? what's that?"

      Yeah, it had one bad CG scene in the entire movie. And that's pretty much the only flaw in the film.

      The remake had way more shitty CG.

        By far i think the most enduring will be The Final Destination series. The premise of Death settling his accounts with those who have cheated him is timeless. And the sheer entertainment value of the creativity of the so-called fatal freak accidents. Its all about the kills, it what keeps bringing folks back and will do for years to come.

            What places have you seen people defend it? Rob Zombie fan sites?

            People don't hate H2 because it's different. They hate it because it was terribly written, generic, boring, not the least bit creepy or tense with a story that makes absolutely no sense, filled with some of the most unlikable characters I've seen in horror recently. (Don't even get me started on those dream sequences.)

            The only redeeming thing about the movie is the first 10-20 minutes in the hospital. After that it becomes the nonsensical dribble we've become used to seeing in horror recently.

            In what world are Drive and Death Sentence horror?

            Drive is definitely a classic though.


            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.
