My Reaction: Nightmare on Elm Street

Nightmare on Elm Street is and always shall be one of my favorite horror film series. This doesn't mean it was all bad. Starting with Nightmare on Elm Street 3: The Dream Warriors dark humor was ingrained into the story. Still I enjoyed the first two part of 'The Dreams' Trilogy' which consisted of 3, 4 and 5: The Dream Warrior, The Dream Masters, and The Dream Child. The reason I enjoyed numbers 3, and 4 of the series was it had interwinding storylines that occurred in the original Nightmare on Elm Street and from 3, and 4. It had a ongoing story that spanned several films and several characters story arcs.  

Here starting with The Dream Child the dark humor was replace with just bad punned humor mix with tiny bit of dark humor. The next film Freddy's Dead took this and made more of a comedy with a bit of horror. The next film Wes Craven's A New Nightmare was a semi reboot that brought the series back into being a true horror film. This was a good step, but sadly Freddy vs Jason went back into the dark humor and it paired up with Jason Voorhees.

Lastly the Nightmare on Elm Street reboot. This one to me was a very good reboot, as it took what was great about the series and told a good story. It may had more dark humor then Wes Craven's New Nightmare, but the dark humor it used was done well. This was a contrast to the rest of the series that used dark humor. 

I will continue with my personally review on each of the Nightmare on Elm Street films and Friday the 13th films as the horror genre is my favorite genre, but I just wanted to write my piece on the Nightmare on Elm Street series as a whole before I reviewed each movie.

Sega, what ups?

Sega why are you leaving your fans in the dark about video game projects they are requesting for. Your fans have been asking for Yakuza 5/Yakuza 1&2 HD to be released in NA and EU, and yet your company's stance is to keep your fanbase in the dark. A major thing to do when you are in the 'Service' industry is to rely information to your fans, or expect your bottomline to be hurt.

The Best way for Star Wars to move forward.

The Star Wars EU is a place of good and bad books, comics books, and video games. There are 6 films and only about 3 of them are considered good. So the best way for Star Wars episode VII to move forward is to only use episode 4 - 6 as canon. This will only the filmmakers more freedom with the Star Wars IP and it will undue three films that ruined the Star Wars IP, which were episodes 1 - 3. Having episode 4 - 7 as a different timeline it will allow any Star Wars film post episode 6 to use the best of Star Wars EU and it allows more fans to join into the Star Wars IP starting with episode 4.

What happens when there is a tale to tell?

When you look deep inside who you are and know there is something to tell what will you do? For me there is a tale to tell, a tale that has been there for a while. A tale that needs to be told, a tale that needs to be passed down. 

A tale of a Nightmare
A tale where the dead still lives on
A tale that will tell who I am
A tale that will tell what may happen when all hope is gone
