The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise
You probably have heard about leatherface, but have you seen any of the movies? I saw the first one, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) and it was actually fantastic.
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974)
I expected it to be like Friday the 13th like movies, which I don’t like, but it is much different. I honestly don’t get the deal with Friday the 13th.
This movie does not contain much gore, but it is very well-made.
The acting in the first movie is excellent and the movie looks pretty beautiful too. I mean the setting and the recording style. The music is great too and the acting is incredible. This movie is a masterpiece.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2
Less realistic than the first one, but it introduces some cool things. It started a bit slower in my opinion, but it had the same vibe as the first one.
Again great music and acting. The acting in the original was incredible, but the acting in this one is pretty damn well too. The first one was better though.
It has a tiny bit of (dark) humor, but not much. Don’t expect much humor. The characters are great too. It is a great film, but the original was better in my opinion.
Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III
This movie was pretty… bad. I was laughing because it was so bad. It started slow and the environment wasn’t so interesting. Also, one of the actors really looked like he was in an action movie.
It gave me laughs, but not because it was good. This movie was a big disappointment. Honestly, just skip this movie, unless you want to see something bad.
The movie is also pretty random. It is like the script was written while the movie was being made.
Just pretend that this movie does not exist… Unless you want some laughs, but there are better movies for that. Really skip this movie.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation
Just like the previous one, this movie was pretty bad. There is a thing though. It was made to be funny. It was not that good to be honest. I didn’t like it.
It had a slow start. Many characters which you see when the movie starts don’t come in the rest of the movie.
I don’t see why the start of this movie was needed. I had the same feeling about the last movie. Just skip this.
I haven’t seen them yet and Michael Bay helped with the first two remakes, so the chance is very close to zero that I am going to watch it.
The remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street was bad in my opinion. Guess who helped with it? Yes, the explosion lover, Michael Bay. Yes, some people like his style of movies, but I am not one of them.
I am sorry, but if you ruin A Nightmare on Elm Street for me. I will not be interested in your other movies, unless I see some good reviews from some people which look trustable enough.
Don’t get me wrong though. There were no explosions in the A Nightmare on Elm Street remake. I just didn’t like it.
