Friday the 13th Part 4:The Final Chapter (What did Jacki K Watch, Day 38)

The Final Chapter Poster

The Final Chapter Poster

The Final Chapter opens with a montage that tells the audience about the killings of the previous 3 movies, regardless that certain deaths were not all committed by Jason.  This is probably why that bitch Casey got the question wrong and ended up killing Steve (I’m talking about 1996 Scream). Anyways, The Final Chapter has a lot to offer in this installment, aside from the fact that it is by far not the final chapter in the Jason franchise. But the mash up of the previous deaths is much better than replaying the last 10-15 minutes of the previous film. Continue reading

Friday the 13th Part 3 (What did Jacki K Watch? Day 37)

3D poster LOL

3D poster LOL

I always found Friday the 13th Part 3 to be a fun installment of the series, but obviously not the best. Like many of the “Part 3s” of the horror genre in the 80s it was filmed in 3D. Not that 3D glasses would help in watching my Friday’s through a box set, but it does serve for some really cheesy moments in the film you know were supposed to be in 3D. None of which are scary, just a bloated cheesefest of an already tired trope. Even the music that plays during the tired 3D opening credits has gotten cheesier. It becomes this crazy, almost techno type of music being played over parts of Friday’s original score. Continue reading

Friday the 13th Part 2 (What did Jacki K Watch, Day 36)

Yo dawgs, you heard I liked the Friday the 13th movies so I wrote some more Friday.

LOL, JUST KIDDING.

I just finished Part 2 of the Friday Franchise and there is a copious amount of interesting things that was presented while watching this film for the (insert # here) time. Between the original and Part 2, Part 2 has always been better to me even though Part 1 scores better on rotten tomatoes. I’m not sure why it has a worse score. Part 2 has a better cast, slightly more creative kills, the same piercing soundtrack, utilizes “Killer POV” more often, a more insightful plot, clever lines, and is much more crucial to the rest of the franchise.

Friday the 13th 1980 (What did Jacki K Watch, Day 35)

A long long time ago, I was a young little thing around the age of 10 or 12 and found myself fascinated with the supernatural, including the lore around Friday the 13th. This lead to a young girl eventually marathoning  rater R Horror flicks right around October of 2011, about two years before she got to see her first Jason film in theaters, Freddy vs. Jason

So here’s the plan, like I do near every Friday the 13th, I will be marathoning the Franchise. 12 movies in 12 days with 12 reviews. This includes posts on the 8 originals, 3 spin-offs, 1 remake, and at the end a drinking game.

Doctor Who (What did Jacki K Watch? Day 21)

Ninth and Rose

Ninth and Rose

Wow, so, it’s been longer than a week since I have written a blog, but I swear it’s for good reason. I went on that camping trip, then to Cedar Point, and began a new job. SO it’s been a busy week and a half. I haven’t really watched anything new lately, but I did rewatch the first series of Doctor Who to get my younger cousin introduced to the fandom. So today’s post will be about beginning the fanatical, phonomenal Doctor Who franchise again. Continue reading

This Is The End (What did Jacki K Watch? Day 09)

This is the End Poster

I saw by far the most amazing movie of the summer tonight. And because of how amazing it was this review will contain spoilers. I honestly don’t know how else to talk about this brilliant Action/Comedy/Horror movie. So if you came to my sight for a spoiler free review, I suggest you search else where. You have been warned.

This Is The End opens with Seth Rogen waiting for his fellow Canadian BFF Jay Baruchel at the airport for a weekend of shenanigans in L.A.  Little did Jay know that he would be spending the Apocalypse  at James Franco‘s new house, one of Seth’s newer friends, whom Jay does not care for. If you didn’t know, this film is based around the worst, funniest, and demeaning sides of the actors themselves. They are their own selves but magnified. And I love that concept of the movie, and so should you. Remember how that same concept was applied to that really shitty 2010 summer release of Grown Upswhere it turned into a giant roast between the cast that wasn’t funny or delivered well? Well, 2013’s This Is The End is the best Action/Comedy I have ever seen in my entire life. My face was actually sore after the movie from smiling the whole 107 minutes. Continue reading

Sullivan & Son (What did Jacki K Watch? Day 08)

The colorful, tolerable cast of Sullivan and Son

The colorful, tolerable cast of Sullivan and Son

Have you ever watched Steve Bryne the comedian? His stand up is hilarious. I recall watching him the first time when I was like 17 in 2007. I may have slightly fell in love with him. He may be my favorite comedian. So I figured I would give the new season of Sullivan & Son on TBS a chance tonight. Because the only other thing I watched was The Big Bang Theory, and do we really want my thoughts on that? Do we? No. we don’t so onto Sullivan and Son!

Going into the show, I wasn’t expecting much for it, but it did deliver some chuckles with it’s racist jokes, timing, and guest star, that Asian  guy from The HangoverKen Jeong. It has a colorful cast of many drunks, whores, and one-liners that help round this un-original sitcom to into a tolerable state. Continue reading

Meet the Robinsons (What did Jacki K Watch? Day 07)

Meet the Robinsons Poster

I love Disney movies. But really I mean who under the age of 30 does not? We had the privilege of growing up with a new Disney animation film every three years after the frightening story of The Little Mermaid was turned into a delightful Disney animation in 1989. Meet the Robinsons is the 2007  film adaption of the 1990 children’s picture book  A Day with Wilbur Robinson.

I remember watching the movie for the first time in a chinky theater in a college town with a bunch of friends. I believe we came to decide on a Disney animation after I picked one too many horror flicks as the group movie (that flick was 2007 Dead Silence a week earlier). We all adored the show. Rewatching it today I had just as an entertaining experience as I did the first time. But with time comes greater knowledge, and I was able to spot out even more pop culture references that I missed the first time around. Continue reading

What to Expect When You’re Expecting, is much better than what I expected (What did Jacki K Watch? Day 06)

Aside from the title, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, being a mouthful, it’s also a fabulous look into the many different types of pregnancies. The film also has an all star cast that I was a little hesitant about. I mean Cameron DiazJennifer Lopez, and Elizabeth Banks all under one roof for a film about getting/being pregnant? No thank you. But they never had a real interaction. It was a split script where the editing brought everything perfectly together. It’s kind of like  of those all star films like Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve but done well. Continue reading
