|Title:||A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge|
|06.24.06||Borrowed|| yeah... this one is pretty gay. Not meaning bad or anything but there are some serious homoerotic undertones going on through this whole movie and I'm not sure the writer and/or director couldn't know it when they were making it despite what the special features say. |
The special features also sort of dismiss this one as a mistake in the series and spend a bit of time basically apologizing for it and trying to qualify what brought it about. I dunno... it gets pretty wonky at the end but for the most part I like this movie. I don't think it's any more different from the first one than the third one is, and if they didn't lock the style of the series down after the third one I don't think this one would seem out of place at all, but even so I still think it's neat how there's an anomoly in the series... sort of like how the 7th level of hell is supposed to be all icy and cold... a nice change of pace. Krueger himself is still wet and scary here... except when he's at the pool party.
I'm not sure starting a 7-movie marathon at 10:30pm on a day where I had to get up early was such a great idea. I think I am gonna try and stay awake for one more... I guess I am turning this impromptu marathon into a 2- or 3-night festival instead...
