Filling of the Sausage is with this and that

Yeah yeah so what I have a soft spot for Webber musicals. If you don't know what I am talking about then just be satisfied that I shared an embarassing secret with you because you just caught an extrodinarly obscure reffrence. So there.

A few things. Saw Friday the 13th part 3. Ugh, just ugh. I have no idea how this series managed to get off the ground. See the thing is despite its massive campyness I enjoy watching part 6. 6 is a pretty damn fun movie when you get right down to it. 3 was just painful and I ended up ignorning most of it. I mean christ. Oh and the 3d gimicks make me want to go find the person who thought that was a good idea and strangle them. I also want to see a porn in 3d. I also want a good horror movie in 3d. While I am wishing for things, I'd like to pet a deer. Anyone up for a trip to the zoo?

I really don't want to deal with part 2, and it kinda drives me nuts because I do have better movies to watch. So why bother? It's because Friday the 13th isn't like any other horror series on the map. It is totally unique when you consider how it evolved and changed over time. Both the images of Michael Meyers and Freddy Kruger were more or less set in stone by end the ends of the first movies. Visually and themeatticlly they became fixed almost instantaeously. Dryly I could say it is because they got it right the first time but I don't think that is entirely it. There is something diffrent about Friday the 13th which caused the series to grow, change, and evolve into the matichine which it became. Take the hokey mask which wasn't introduced until the 3rd movie, and even then it was part of a throw-away plot element. This girl was assaulted by Jason years before and she was returning to crystal lake for the first time and being retarded she didn't realize the masked killer and her assailent were one and the same until he took the mask off. OOOOERS. Yet this mostly ignored side plot has become an institution, people don't think of Jason without his mask it just doesn't happen.

As the series goes on it becomes more interesting to me.

And my hands hurt so while I have much more to say I am cutting it here.
