Best Since King Kong vs. Godzilla! Today's movies keep getting worse and worse. But, on the bright side, the movie reviews making fun of them keep getting better and better. I have no plans to see the just-released "Freddy vs. Jason" movie (not even on video). But I thoroughly enjoyed how the critics slashed the movie to pieces (links here, here, here, and here).
The Washington Post skewers both Jason ("Though he moves with the speed of a man checking out a buffet spread, Jason somehow always manages to overtake his younger, fitter quarry ...") and Freddy, outfitted in his trademark tattered red and green sweatshirt ("It's possible that a generation of teenage boys has related to Freddy primarily because of his slacker duds and problematic complexion."). Maybe somebody should make a movie about a movie critic.
