The story reason of his death is no better or more final than any of the previous... but the sheer satire of the movie pretty much sealed the coffin I think (probably the box office as well). At least he didn't take Manhattan. Still though... i found it more watchable than the dream child. Except the red/blue 3D. That made my head hurt so I turned it off.|
Oh, and what a wasted opportunity to not use the Curtis Mayfield song from Superfly. It could've easily replaced Iron Butterfly in Breckin Meyers' psychadelic trip-out scene or the end credits (or both)... I mean if you're gonna name the movie Freddy's Dead... and there's a great song with the same name... isn't that a no-brainer? I guess not though because there seems to be a lot of movies that do that.
So one more to go... this one's actually been giving me hope through the last... three or so of these. I only saw it once and that was still when I was relatively young and the trailer for it is pretty interesting. Let's hope there are no dream children.
