Im going for neither.

I was never really into the Final destination series. It got old to me really quick. That, and rob zombie has screwed up the image of Meyers in my opinion.

Im still addicted to District 9.

I think they both look kinda stupid, especially FD. The old Halloween is where it's at. So far District 9 is one of my favorites.

Yeah, I would go for original horrors any day. Rob Zombie is a good act but his movies are better off as originals like The Devil's Rejects which I dont remember hearing it being a remake. I may be wrong.

Halloween 2 will be the victor. Im not a big fan of the last one. Althought Rob has many followers and not to mention he kicked it up a notch and introduced Michael Myers to an all new generation. Final Destination part 4 in 3 D. Shouldnt part 3 been 3D? Anyway the last one was the best of the whole series. This one looks pretty lame! Im going to see H2 Friday!

Well I went to see H2. Major dissappointment. Not a big fan of the Rob Zombie Halloweens anyway. This was just plain dumb. None of it really goes together. And it makes Loomis out to be some asshole. I think it was just one big ball of crap! But I still think it will do better than Final Destination.? Maybe Im wrong and should have gone and seen it instead.

Final Destination made 10.7 first day and Halloween 2 7.5 so FD3 kicked Halloween azz.

Won't happen. Blobs don't live in trailer parks so how will he develop the back story?

Damn. 3 mil. Oh well. The little purist got their way I guess.
H2 > FD
Rob did a great job. It did make sense. It was fresh and did not follow those cheesey horror movie templates. It cannot be compared to any Halloween movie and I'm sick of seeing that done. It was new and fresh using an old charachter.

He's off to a crappy start insulting the original Blob movies but the "cult" following cannot be that big to make a difference. Not aware of any Blob online communities like MM

H2 did a total of $17 million for the weekend...... final dest. did $38 million. (did that include the final in 3D and the regular version ??? (just wondering) both versions were shown here in local theatres here.

Inglorious came in 2nd place. I really thought H2 would have done better.

I also heard Halloween 3-D is slated for next Sepetmeber... Not sure if Rob Zombie is involved.

Thanks for the posts. more comments please on H2 and
FINAL (how was the new 3D-effect?)

I liked H2. I thought that he went too far with Loomis' character being a prick and all.

And Im not gonna give anything away here, but since they killed off so many people in the movie, what will be in the 3rd one? If they make it.

Like "SEASON OF THE WITCH" without Michael Myers. I'm sure the news will break soon on this project.

Sad to see those numbers but thanks for posting

I have now seen both movies...

Halloween 2 ... Rob Zombie never learns just another trailer park trash movie with the word F*CK being used at least 1000 times. The whole scene at the end was stupid I mean he's a mass murderer and you just surround the farm house. Additionally the way he kills everyone was excessively brutal, knife attack over and over to the same body. It was overboard! Lumas or whatever his name was was WAY OVER THE TOP STUPID! First movie he was serious and this movie he's like a joke. Another thing that was DUMB was this little town having this WILD Halloween party with nude dancers in the middle of town...that was retarded because it would never happen.

I hated all the dream stuff that was just stupid! Now what I did like was Myers walking fields, seeing him with a beard, him being somewhat of a man, he was a man on a mission so to speak. What else I liked sorta was the dream stuff because it kind of puts you in his head that he is basically nuts.

I hated with they did with his sister at the end...DUMB!

Overall I would rate it 2 stars out of 5.

After this movie I will not see another Rob Zombie remake! Period!


Final Destination was like more of the same... we've already seen all of this already. People no matter what they do die! It had some cool kills, and the 3D was very cool. Mostly this version was VERY GORY! I would rate it 3.5 out of 5 just because the 3D was cool.

Winner: Final Destination.

Yes, I agree Larry.... FD in 3D was decent ( Entertaining ) due to todays 3D technology. Same old boring story but 3D made my wallet feel a little looser that for sure. After watching Halloween we thought we needed some kind of pick me up after shelling out the dough... so we went right out the next night to try to recover the feeling we lost the noght before. ( We didnt recover the evil slasher movie feeling we had on the way to the theatre ) BUT, it was entertaining thats for sure....

Yeah you really cant beat todays 3D technology !

Maybe Rob should have used 3D ~ it might have been a safety net ?

Anyone know? Also, looks like h2 will be out of the theatres way earlier than expected. Too bad. I love the original concept and the michael myers character.
