For those who don't already know FRIDAY THE 13TH is being remade by Jerry Bruckheimer. This isn't a sequel, per se, but rather a reinvention of the original material. So I wonder: if a sequel to FREDDY VS JASON gets made (the 11th of the series), does it get called the 12th movie in the series (not counting the remake) or the 13th movie in the series (counting the remake). And what if the remake does SO WELL that a sequel to the REMAKE gets made? Is that movie called FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 2 all over again??? Just wondering....! Here is something I DO KNOW: my ranking of each of the movies so far: 1. FRIDAY THE 13TH (PART 1): none of the sequels ever quite captured what the original showed. 2. FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE FINAL CHAPTER. I LOVED this movie! It had lots of nudity and was just LOTS of fun. 3. FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 2: This movie was severely edited down to make an R rating. I would LOVE to see the director's original vision without the cuts because I think the released film was really good - and uncut will be just that much better. 4. FREDDY VS JASON (Part 11): This one had the biggest budget, and was really fun. 5. FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 3 IN 3D: I hated it upon it's original release but have grown fond of it over time. 6. FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 5: A NEW BEGINNING: Lots of deaths, not all that great, but it did have a mystery to it unmatched since Part 1. 7. JASON X (Part 10): Jason ends up in outer space. The Jason movies I like the most are the ones at camp, and this one is SO not at Camp Crystal Lake. However, it is kinda fun to see the slasher flick in outer space. 8. FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 6: yep, I liked it. HOWEVER, I DID NOT LIKE 9. FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 7, 10. FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 8: JASON TAKES MANHATTEN and (THE ABSOLUTE WORST) 11. JASON GOES TO HELL: THE FINAL FRIDAY (Part 9).
