Friday The 13th remake soapbox.
I really fucking hate the fact that people have associated Jason with a machete as his signature weapon. Not only is a machete whimpy, weak and notoriously dull, but the only way to make a machete intimidating is to make it look all silly- like a Katana. Most of the publicity photos of the remake has Jason with a machete which sort of frustrates me. Until late (as in Freddy vs Jason) Jason never used a machete much at all, and basically only used one because it was handy. I know I am over analyzing this, but is sort of bothers me that people fele the need to associate Jason with a signature weapon... Grrr
Anyways. I love the fact that Jason will be wearing his infamous sack as well.
I have always loved the sack more than the hockey mask- it's just creepier. In the trailer the photo top the left suck out to me. It sort of reminds me of (original) Black Christmas and this part of Friday The 13th: Part II. For some reason I have a feeling that the movie won't be that good. Oh well.
