So I went to the movies on Saturday...

My son wanted to take his girlfriend to the movies on Saturday, to celebrate their 5 month anniversary (hey, their 16, what do you expect?), so instead of driving, dropping off, driving home and then back to pick them up, I decided I'd just stay and see a movie too. Not the same one of course, don't want to be a party poop, but there was only 1 movie that would end around the same time as theirs. Did I really want to see it? The answer, sadly is, no. But I paid for my ticket, bought the required soda & popcorn, walked in just after the lights went down. THE ENTIRE MOVIE THEATER WAS EMPTY!! Oh boy, bad sign. I guess all the things I'd heard about the remake of Friday the 13th were true! ARGH!!!
Ok, the movie wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. If you go in expecting a remake and knowing it can't live up to the first movie, then it's a great movie! If you've never seen the original, it's a great movie! I wasn't expecting Gone With The Wind, or any other great epic tale, I went in expecting a slasher film, and guess what? Thats what I got.
