Friday the 13th Part III

Friday the 13th Part III ★★★★

"Goddammit, Shelly, why do you always have to be such an asshole?"
"Sorry. And I'm not an asshole, I'm an actor."
"Same thing."

The first time I saw Part III, it was in 2D, so all the little 3D flourishes were just annoyances that added nothing to the story. Couple that with the fact that I apparently just was a snob that didn't see the series as having much merit other than a rabid fan base and my rating for this outing was about as dismal as it could get back then.

Tonight, however, I watched it in 3D with Julie and we both really enjoyed it. This is actually my favorite, by far, at the moment. All of those annoying little flourishes actually work really well in 3D, even if they don't really add to the story. And Jason is finally Jason, even if he still has issues with staying on his feet. He just seems to be more frightening looking in that damn hockey mask, for whatever reason.
