    My Bloody Valentine

    ★★★½

    I saw this upon first release in the theater, and the 3-D was spectacular. This was right before the mass influx of bandwagoners that used sub optimal post production 3-D to cash in on the gimmick’s resurgence. Director Lussier with Brian Pearson as DP shot this in
    3-D and both had a keen eye for setting up shots for choice effect. Unfortunately the DVD with anaglyph doesn’t do it justice and is better viewed in its flat presentation. Maybe the…

    “I don’t know what kind of game you guys are playing, but I don’t like it.”

    Richard Brooker might be my favorite Jason. It’s really between him and Ted White (Final Chapter). 

    “Sex, sex, sex… You guys are getting boring.”

    Watched in anaglyph 3-D and wearing my official Camp Crystal Lake cap.

Then it occurred to me of the day in question, thought about irony, and maybe it was predetermined after all?

    ★★★

    “The only difference between my profession and yours, is that when I blow people away, they don’t ejaculate on my breasts.”

    A bad omen: All the trailers before the feature were of movies I never want to watch (circa 2011-12). Including one with Robert DeNiro, Being Flynn, costarring Julianne Moore, who gets no mention in the trailer. Then I wondered if she did a nude scene for it since I’ve never seen her in a film where she didn’t disrobe.…
