More soap/melodrama with a low kill count. This is probably the weakest entry in the franchise.
Mark Patton screams like a girl.
As was the case with Halloween 3: Season of the Witch. NOES 2, doesn’t really fit the bill in regards to bonding well together with the rest of the franchise. In its own right, its not a terrible film, it does however scrap the premise/magic of the original and takes liberties in creating something different, more of a possession style horror. This premise ultimately felt a little bland for an Elm St product.
Again, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, except for the fact that the original concept of Freddy Krueger invading dreams is brought back for the 3rd instalment.
Tried so hard to find a fault in this film but it honestly proved very difficult. Logan was so far detached from the tame product marvel generally produces.
The vulnerability shown by Logan as well as the almighty Xavier’s own ailing existence brought a welcoming human element to the experience.
This was Jackman’s best take on Wolverine to date and probably his finest work overall as an actor.
Extraordinary film making and actors attached to the project.
Emotionally latched onto Beale St and I eventually broke. A very rare feat for a film to have that kind of impact on me. Still a little baffled as to why it was snubbed at The Oscars for a best picture nominee. Either way, the magic and honesty of this film hit me hard.
Feeling very numb now.
