All in the title. How many times do you plan to see RZ's Halloween in theatres?

I will see it once.

I never see a movie twice in theaters.

Probably at least twice.

If its good, then maybe an extra time or two.

I really enjoy the big-screen theater experience so I don't mind going to see a movie several times. I think the most I did for a movie was probably 4 or 5 times for Episode III, which was a beautiful movie to see on the big screen.

I'll see it opening night, and probably go to the drive-in another time to see it.

I guess it would depend on how good it was. If it's abysmal, probably just the once. I will ocassionally see a movie more than once in the cinema if I really liked it and didn't want to wait for DVD (more recently Batman Begins, Saw II & III and Zodiac).

Depends. I know Im seeing it twice for sure, but if I like it all THAT much, well I can see myself going to it like 5 or 6 times

About 8 times, I see all of robs movies about 5 times apiece but since its HALLOWEEN i guess i'll see it double!!!!!!

Bro it depends on how good it is. If i like i will view it 2 more times.

Captain Mal

Went to see H20 twice. Will probably do the same with this one. Dammit we've to wait til October for it to come out. Ah well, at least we're seasonal.

Kinick
08-24-2007, 06:59 AM
Since i don't see the point in torturing myself until it comes out here, i'll probably see it first chance i get on a copy DVD. If it's any way decent (better than atleast 2 or sequels) i'll watch in the cinema on Halloween.

Assuming its as good as I hope, and think it will be, I'll probalbly see it twise. The issue is that im under 18, which means I need sombody over with me to get in. Minimal 2 times though....one being opening night

halo thirty one
08-24-2007, 07:06 AM
I know I'll see it at least twice. The second time will be to see if I was right about my initial reaction to the first time I saw it. Sometimes it takes me a couple of viewings to get a feel for a movie. If I really like it, it could be 3 or 4 theatrical viewings.

How old are you? Im only 16 but I can easily pass for 18. If you think you could pass for 18 then by all means, go.

Khan
08-24-2007, 07:14 AM
About 8 times, I see all of robs movies about 5 times apiece but since its HALLOWEEN i guess i'll see it double!!!!!!

So even if you don't like it by chance, you will see it eight times?

About 8 times, I see all of robs movies about 5 times apiece but since its HALLOWEEN i guess i'll see it double!!!!!!

So that would make it 10 times then



I very rarely go & see the same movie twice at the cinema.If i really like it the first time then there could be a good chance that i'd go & see it again.

Im turning 17 in September. Somedays I pass, but others the people working just want to be a pain in the ass, and ask for the ID I dont have. Im goign with my Dad and some friends opening night, and I got a few broke friends over 18 for next time haha.

I'll probably just see it once and then buy it when it comes on DVD (of course)

I simply don't have the time or money to see a movie multiple times.

I'll see it once, and then maybe again if it's better than I expected.

DeanCorso

None for me...since from the start i never been in favor of the idea of remaking this classic so i'll just wait to rent it on DVD.

08-24-2007, 09:55 AM
At least twice depending who wants to go with me.

MyersFan927
08-24-2007, 09:56 AM
I don't have the money that theaters are asking for to see a movie more than once. I only saw 2 movies twice in the theater and only paid for 1. And that was for a date. I can't go twice.

I'll see it one more time with the free movie ticket. Hopefully I can get some friends to come.

So it's 2.

A. Remin' D.
08-24-2007, 11:03 AM
At least twice.

Opening night I'm taking my friend. The second time... we'll see.

MichaelMyers04
08-24-2007, 11:27 AM
I'm probably going to watch this 2 times, unless it's completely horrid, then the first time will be enough. But I'm counting on the fact that it will atleast be decent.

Stage 3
08-24-2007, 11:36 AM
depending on how good it is, i will see it up to 3 times and then buy the special version on dvd when it comes out.

I guess it really depends on if you like it enough or not

Deckard
08-24-2007, 05:43 PM
If its as good as I think its gonna be...I've already lined up "movie dates" (aka, a bunch of different friends) all through the first week it opens...so I'm set to see it a bunch of times if I'm satisfied with it...

It might be in the dollar theaters by Halloween, but will probably be gone.

Im so waiting to see thismovie since last year... Im going to see it on friday w my sister and then go see it again on monday with my friends. Hearing the halloween music in the movies is so amazing and seeing the people reactions is so amazing. the dvd ill buy the day it comes out. Maybe it will be out for christmas.

ragethorn
08-29-2007, 11:10 AM
It depends.
I took the day off to see the earliest show possible.
If it's bad, like Ressurection, then 1 time.
If I enjoyed it, then I might see it 2 or 3 times.

TheShape66
08-29-2007, 12:13 PM
Twice that I know of. First showing on Friday, and then again Sunday night at the drive in. Anymore after that would be fine.

Actually the film was so good that I might be going this week-end again but with my girlfriend this time and the first part with young michael was very great the part I didnt like was the end tough and I saw that disgusting rape scene on youtube im glad it was removed from the theatrical cut anyone know if it was Lew temple and Danny trejo that where raping the Smiths grove patient??

MrShape666
08-30-2007, 01:13 PM
Well, If I like it enough and wanna support it, I might see it once a week for its whole run. I did that when Romero's Land Of The Dead was out.

Even if I don't like it very much, I'm so much of a Micheal Myers junkie I'll still get it on DVD/Blue Ray/HD DVD (whatever choices I have).:han:

now, see...if we had a drive in, I'd go see it on there. As it is, I have no plans to see it yet. I may go see it if my friend wants to, but it's nothing that I'm excited about enough to have planned.

Stoferman87
08-31-2007, 09:57 AM
I saw the movie last nite, and I will see it again today and probably a few more times in its running while in theaters, especially in the dollar show. I don't get people who are "true" myers fans saying "I dont even think I am going to see it till its on dvd, and it will be a while at that..." c'mon it's a new movie...something to analiyze and love/hate depending on weither or not your picky as hell, or that your comparing it to the original...every halloween fan should see it atleast twice while in theaters IMO anyways...please don't take offense anyone, just my opinion :D

zombie commando
08-31-2007, 10:01 AM
It all depends on how good it is, but I'll probably end up seeing it at least twice. Once to form an opinion and the second time to solidify it.

Demonswrath
08-31-2007, 11:07 AM
Sorry, but after seeing that last night, I will not give one more red cent to that film. Not on DVD or any other form. I was very dissappointed. I was ready to leave after the first 10 minutes. If I wasn't such a fan of Halloween, I would have. I just had to see what all happened and it's ending. Oh my god, that was horrible. My kids thought it was bad. I would have rathered them do another damn sequel. The future of this franchise is probrobly down the drain. Good luck digging yourself out of this one Malek. How could you have let this be done to the franchise? You didn't just drop the ball, you flattened it buddy. And that is a shame.

EvilOnTwoLegs
08-31-2007, 11:42 AM
It depends on how it hits me. If I go to see it more than once, that will be a first for a Halloween film. The Halloween films I've seen in the theater have all been...well, to my mind, simply not good.

I remember when I first joined, people were talking about how they just got back from seeing H:R for the fourth or fifth time. hahaha I couldn't believe it. Here it is, five years later, and I've still only watched it twice. Once in the theater, once on video. As soon as I watched it at home, and realized it was even worse than I remembered, it was doomed to sit in my Big Filing Cabinet O' Movies for all time, untouched.

Dr_Loomis02
08-31-2007, 12:22 PM
I voted more than 5. I don't know, but this is the biggest thing that's happened for Halloween since H4 IMO. The film keeps growing on me. The more I think about it, the more excited I get. It's new, fresh and I know I'll want to go again. I'm sure once it hits the dollar show I'll be seeing it there a bunch to.
So it will probably be over 5 times.
I'm extremely happy with what we got with this installment.

It sounds like you hate the film at this point, but I do recommend a second viewing, even if it's in the dollar show. I don't know, but it gets better the second time around, it did for me. I felt exactly the same way. I was mad as hell and thought, "what has RZ done?" But going in the second time, it really grew on me. Anyway, its worth a repeat viewing IMO.

Most definitely twice since I've already seen it once and I still have my free movie cash to use, which I plan on using next week to go see it with my best friend (who I managed to get hooked onto the HalloweeN series :yeah:). I also want to try and make it to the drive-in if that becomes an option in the near future. Three is my favorite number so I will probably follow through on that number...also because I should enjoy the film in theatres while it lasts. It's fun, entertaining and I'm happy it's part of the series so I want to be able to take it in all its glory on the big screen while I can.

If I had fallen in love with this film, I would have wanted it to have been my "most seen movie in the theatre," which would mean five viewings, as the film I have seen most is four times.

I dont really plan on seeing it again. *maybe* get it on dvd. last night 15-20 people walked out on the movie and frankly, I was almost tempted to myself. This movie was beyond a dissapointment. This is a Rob Zombie movie with Michael just dropped into certain scenes.....not a halloween movie. The kills were over the top and beyond disgusting and the cursing unessecary. Just bure bs.

Thrill.

JeanneMW
09-01-2007, 06:53 AM
Won't see it again in the theater......but will definitely be buying it! I was amazed the movie didn't suck actually. I've heard nothing but negative things about R.Z. movies.....so was actually skeptical of this movie. I knew he had some HUGE shoes to fill.....especially since still today there are so many Michael Myers fans (myself included).
I liked the movie a lot. I liked how it answered many things. Even though it wasn't actually part of the others....it felt as if it were.......and when you saw Michael's family life when he was a child, how he came across his "uniform", his mask, etc.....it makes ya go aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh.
So all in all, I liked it a lot. I was pleasantly surprised and I just love that man......Michael Myers that is. :-)
OH, and I definitely do not think it's a place to take children too. Too much swearing and sex/nudity. Yesterday while watching this movie, there was a woman of one race with a 5 year old screaming loudly at another person of another race in front of her for swearing on the phone during the movie in front of her 5 year old, that she shouldn't talk that way especially since there was a 5 year old behind her. Um......hello?! You're letting your 5 year old hear WORSE things and see WORSE things on the movie! Duuuuuuuuuuhhhhhhhhhhh. Just thought I'd share that because it still steams me!
Ok......have a good one everyone!

The kills were over the top and beyond disgusting and the cursing unessecary.
For the most part, the kills weren't over-the-top. I'd classify almost every kill in H6 as over-the-top, the thumb through the face and gun impalement from H4, some of the H:R kills (decapitation with head rolling down the stairs, anyone?), etc. The violence in this movie was pretty realistic. It's an unfortunate fact that people do bleed (a lot) when catastrophic injury is inflicted on their bodies.

And a lot of the actual violent contact isn't shown...only implied...with the sound effects and resultant blood being the main indication that the stabs connected. The main exceptions here are Ronnie's death, one stab (through clothing) for Judith, and Joe Grizzley being beaten against the bathroom stall...though when he's stabbed, I don't think the knife contact was shown.

So it's nothing we haven't seen before...and a lot less gory or over-the-top than a lot of what we've seen in some past Halloweens. There just happens to be more blood as a result of the violence...which isn't over-the-top...just realistic.

mcilroga
09-01-2007, 08:48 AM
I agree with EOTL.

People were so squirmy during the deaths in this film, and I didn't see the problem. The deaths weren't that bad; they were actually just realistic. Violence happens in real life, and it's not pretty. During

the bully's death, everyone was like, "oh my God!" Haha, as if they were shocked that an obtuse branch being smashed repeatedly against someone's face could commit blood. :rolleyes:

Anyway, the only death I thought was a little unnecessary happens to be one of the least gory deaths in the film (soak that in :p), and that's

Ismael's. I don't know if they were paying homage to Halloween II, but why continually dunk someone's head into cold water? I kept thinking, "just hold his head down, and he'll drown. Bringing him up for air isn't helping." Hahaha.

Yeah. I think it's important...not just here, but in film in general...to portray violence realistically if you don't want it to come across as laughable, or if you want people to really feel affected by it. And in a way, I think that "action movie" stylized violence is kind of irresponsible. I don't think violent movies make people more violent...but I do think it's regretful that so many filmmakers make their violence slick and meaningless. In real life, violence is brutal and ugly. Death is powerful and resoundingly final. It should be portrayed as such.

Agreed.

I think it's because he was such a sympathetic character, and because he was pleading and trying to reason with Myers...and because he was good to Myers all those years. And I think that the reason Myers kept bringing him up for air was, basically, to fuck with him. This scene establishes Michael as a true villain...a monster...not just a sympathetic anti-hero to cheer for as he slashes his way through unlikable characters. He kills a character that you don't want to see die, and he drags it out in a sadistic (though non-gory) manner.

I agree. And to my surprise, Rob Zombie's Halloween didn't go overboard. It really didn't. Shit, it's not even the goriest film in the series. Nothing unrealistic like thumbs protruding into human skulls, hypodermic needles going into eyes, etc. I anticipated shit like that, but was glad I was wrong. Realism is the way to go, if you ask me. Which is why I really love this Myers. Probably the best portrayal since the original.

Yeah, it established Myers as ruthless.

Though I couldn't particularly root for Ismael after he tried to cuff Myers. I'd have gotten my ass quickly out of there; sorry, no matter how nicely you treat a mental patient, they're still a mental patient. And this one's a multiple murderer to boot. I liked his character, but thought that was really a bonehead move for him to make. I still didn't want him to die, though, but it was obvious that Michael wasn't just going to let himself be cuffed, shipped back to his room, and everything would be roses and fairies.

On a different note,

Did anybody else feel for Ms. Myers? I really did... she had an asshole boyfriend, a son who's a killer, a bitchy daughter. That's of course before number 1 and 3 were killed. She was probably my favorite character in the entire film, and I was pretty sad when she committed suicide. Nobody deserves that, especially no one with a life as hard as her's. She was strong, but suicide was inevitable, I suppose. Good lady, it's a shame.

I agree. When he tried to cuff Michael, I turned to my girlfriend and said "umm, run!" I feel bad for Ismael, but that was a bad move on his part.

Yeah, I felt bad for her, but at the same time, she didn't have to stick around with her dirt-bag boyfriend. I was also disappointed that she commited suicide and basically left Laurie on her own. I understand she hit rock bottom with what was going on with her son, but she still had a daughter to care for.
There is a certain amount of character depth in both Ismael Cruz and Deborah Myers that is usually lacking in these types of movies. I guess that's part of what made me enjoy this Halloween more than many of the sequels.

Yeah...but Ismael really felt he had a special connection to Myers. I mean, it wasn't the smartest move...and I knew right then and there that Myers was gonna kill him. But while Ismael maybe isn't that brilliant, he's a nice guy who's probably been through a lot (he's obviously an ex-con who's turning his life around), and he's one of the few people who really tried to relate to Myers and treated him well. Which is what makes his death hard to watch.

my take on the movie is that it's right up there with H2 in terms of it's quality. i think the movie would have been a lot better if every curse word in the english language wouldn't have been used twice. another thing that made me roll my eyes was the fact of how much nudity was in the movie. Michael kills 5 people while they're fucking or had just finished...his sister, her boyfriend, Linda, Bob, and Paul. It made Michael look a little sleezy. i love what Rob did to turn the audience against Michael. at first i pitied Michael for the life he lived, but after he killed Ismael the crowd started to look at him differently, that was smart. as far as the gore factor, it was a lot less toned down than usual Rob Zombie works, but it was enough to get the point across. you can't really compare it to the first because the original Halloween had like 3 drops of blood in the entire movie. when it comes to Linda, Annie and laurie, I didn't feel the connection to them personally like i did with the girls who played them in the original, i guess all the cussing and fucking made me resent them too much. i don't know about you guys, but i did not like Loomis in this movie, i guess that's why they killed him off, but he just didn't do it for me. this of course is totally objective. I know Donald had his loomis and Malcolm did his, but it wasn't that i didn't like malcolm playing loomis as much as how his character was written, it just didn't suit me well. the best thing this movie has going for it is that Michael dies (hopefully) at the end, but that whole not seeing him dead could be Dimension keeping it's options open. I think Scout did a great job, she was no jamie lee curtis, but she had a strong yet vulnerable presence. i gave this movie in the spirit of the reviews our boys here do 4 pumpkins out of 5.

my personal review of the movie

if you haven't seen the movie, this review will spoil it for you.

That's how I also saw things, but don't forget that:

it shows Ismael as an honorable man who takes his job very seriously and has seemingly been quite successful at turning his life around. Further reasons that make his death even harder to watch, droogie.

Indeed.

Seeing him early on, talking about how he's spent some time behind walls, then seeing him 15 years later, still holding a steady job. He's picked himself up...and he was literally on the verge of retirement. Another sad irony.

And I agree with Derek about Deborah, and the problems she had to go through in her life. It's actually sad seeing how her life went from crappy, to just unbearable. I wish the movie had more scenes like this (or ones where we care) as opposed to worthless sex talks.

Halloween RZ 2007 what a joke wasn't good but boring family in orginal were not drugs users, alcholics, strippers, or wifebeaters. Original Michael was a classic well cut boy that is what was so scary. The 2007 he wasn't some freak needing a mask for everything. He killed more people in the first 15 min then in orginal Halloween. RZ ruined the story line. All about boobs and sex nothing else. If he makes anymore movies he is disgracing John Carpenter and Debra Hill legacy. The guy needs to go back to making music. He is a joke. Wes Craven would have done a much better story.

Annie was nude blood all over her boobs. Lynda and Bob were killed at Micheals house and Dr Loomis was killed. Laurie shot Michael in the head and wound up screaming. Oh yea they also showed Lynda boobs too. Michael wore a mask all the time. He turned into someone worse then Freddy or Jason. He killed his whole family. What else Dr Loomis likes to wear black. The Janitor was Killed along with the Nurse and 4 officers. He killed a guy in the bath room and stole his clothes.

does that sum it up. I walked the first 15 min and got my money back I didn't say I didn't finish it.

09-03-2007, 02:17 AM
I just got back from the movie theater. And to be honest, I feel quite screwed that I actually payed money to see this piece of garbage known as Rob Zombie's Halloween - as I'm sure of 99% of the paying customers that helped this piece of crap break records this weekend.

I went into this movie with VERY little expectation. I thought Rob Zombie was going to make a bomb of a film but as a long term fan of the franchise I wanted to give it the light of day. To say this film was "bad" is a vast understatement. This had to be one of the top 5 worse films I've EVER SEEN. No exaggeration.

I think Halloween: Resurrection is GOLD compared to this piece of crap remake. I can now watch even Busta Rymes do ridiculous kung fu and be more entertained than I was watching this dissaster of a poor film know as Rob Zombie's Halloween.

Acting? HORRIBLE.
Directing? HORRIBLE.
Script? HORRIBLE.
Forgettable dialogue? YOU BET!

The only positive thing I can say about this film was that Malcolm did a decent job as Sam Loomis (of course he is no donald pleasence - but who is?).

Yes, granted, this film is breaking box office records for labor day weekend. But is that for the quality of the film or a great story line? HELL NO. Its because there is a such a big audience antisipating the film, that in the words of Zombie himself "horror fans are so desperate, they will go see a horror movie knowing it's a piece of crap" - this is definitely were I fit in! ha (and yes, many Halloween fans such as myself who were going to check it out to support the franchise and wanted to give it light of day out of sheer curiousity - despite knowing that Zombie was going to rape what we loved about the series.).

It came filled with the usual Zombie esque of poor and distasteful film making... Senseless gore, no suspense, bad story line, unconvincing acting, forgettable dialogue, using the same actors that he uses in all his films - you all get the drift!

Moustapha must be crying in the clouds that this horrible remake has come to fruition and his son helped drive the thing into the ground - it seems in many aspects of the film went against his wishes from interviews on the way Myers is supposed to be potrayed on film. The shape was reduced to a poor grade, lurching, ogre wanna be leatherface. Sad sight.

Want to know what happened when the film ended? No cheers. No claps. EVERYONE WAS TALKING ABOUT HOW DISSAPOINTING AND BAD THE FILM WAS - literally EVERYONE that I could over hear was just voicing their distaste for the film and bad acting.

I can continue, but I will stop at this point since I have nothing positive to say.

All I must say on an ending note - Miramax has just lost a long term fan to let the franchise hit such a low Halloween.

I feel ripped off and I will not support this studio again. But what do they care, right? They are laughing all the way to the bank that the fans of the franchise were jipped into seeing a total piece of crap that they barely had to spend any money on and turned a huge profit! Sounds good - if you Miramax or the Goldsteins! If you are Halloween fan you are most likely feeling pretty screwed.

No wonder why critics from east to west and everyone in between is slamming this film - it is a total piece of crap.

What is everyone else's opinions - positive or negative - from their theater experience of the film?

If Ressurection was gold in comparison to this film, than I have no need to read any further in your review.
There are some things, opinion or not, that I just will not tolerate or agree upon. Saying this film was worse than HR is insulting.
Great if you think so, but that is really stretching validity that you are a long time Halloween fan. Anyone with a brain can see that this film is superior to that pile of poo.
But enough of my ranting, sorry you didn't like it.

Yes, some movies, people just don't want to wait for dvd. Judging by its initial success, it looks like the new Halloween is one of them. Given all the hype about how well it did last weekend, I wouldn't be suprised to see it do better this upcoming Friday thru Sunday than some people seem to think it will. It was at 32 million yesterday, so it could easily have 34 or 35 mil before Friday. If it only makes ten million this weekend, which is a low estimate, that puts it at about 45 million going into its second week. Honestly, do you see any way that this movie isn't going to end up a big hit, all things considered?

I highly doubt a Western will be successful in theaters. I've heard NOTHING of this movie to make me think it'd take number one (3:10 to Yuma.)

And Shoot Em Up while having some praise here and there from males on various message boards, looks like your general cliche action film in the trailers and previews which are not shown enough.

I still think unless Superbad hops back up to number 1, Halloween will be on top again.

It's going to be interesting seeing which direction the box office goes in this week. September is usually a mundane month at the movies -- financially speaking.

As for the question asked... I saw this movie once theatrically. I was suppose to see it a second time, but plans changed. Will still check out the DVD -- Director's Cut hopefully -- when it hits. Here's hoping the DVD isn't postponed till next Halloween season. Halloween 6 did that (theatrical '95/VHS '96), but that's long, long ago.

Interesting...considering the fact that the series includes such cinematic abortions as H:R. I love certain Halloween movies, but I don't love the series as a whole. Where the sequels are concerned, I tolerate some of them, lament how others could have (and should have) been better, and in the case of trash like H:R, disregard them completely.

But hell, I even gave H:R a second chance. I still hated it afterward, but I at least gave it the benefit of one more viewing. Now I'm sure that I don't want to watch it anymore, and I'm content to pretend it doesn't exist within the series. And since there will never be a sequel to it (thankfully), disregarding it is a very simple matter.

As far as Halloween is concerned, I love H1, as a standalone film. The franchise, however, is a rollercoaster with far too many ups and downs. So I like the movies I like, dislike the ones I dislike, and don't really feel a desire to say I love "the series." I rate it above other horror series...but considering the competition, how much does that really say?

There are great Halloween films, godawful ones, and everything else falls in between. It's pretty much middle-of-the-road as far as I'm concerned, when I average all of the films out.

I've seen it twice in the theaters and once at the drive in. I think two more showings will satisfy me. :) I had my problems with the film, but once its out of theaters its pretty much out of theaters. I relish seeing movies on the big screen, especially those ones with Michael Myers.

I just love feeding those Hollywood bastards, don't I?

I saw my 2nd showing tonight ...... It does get better with each viewing, lol :p , but still not as good as the WP. I commented on Brad Dourif's performance (which was pathetic) in the main spoiler thread ..... 2nd time around, he is worse :(

I thought he was good in all the other scenes except for that. He's given some pretty crappy lines, especially in the workprint.

There really is no excuse for that scene where he finds his daughter all cut up though. How he acted that way in the first place, how Zombie didn't catch it... boggles the mind.

I've seen twice. It's also playing at the Drive in here so I'll see it at least once more theatrically.

I've seen it 4 times. Going to see it again when my friend comes back to town. And i'm definetly buying it and I watch movies I like many many times.
BTW -- 2 of the times i've seen it were on the internet, and you'll be excited to know that its alot different than the one in theatres, alternate ending and deleted/alternate scenes. I personally like it better than the one in theatres, but its so much better to watch it in theatres. I just hope the dvd has it all!! :)

My girlfriend and I have seen it 3 times already, we got a couple shirts each from Hot Topic along with the sound track, got the poster at Spencer's and are planning on seeing it at least 2 more times with friends. We decided we'd go all out and support Halloween as much as we could since it's our favorite movie franchise and because there's a chance that it could be the last time we see a new Halloween movie in the theatres (although I don't believe it for one second). It's a good Halloween too movie so I don't mind watching it a few times. Maybe I shouldn't be asking this here but where can you see the workprint, can you buy it or is it just an internet thing?

Silverpsycho

Well it looks as though my prediction of three times is correct. I've seen it twice and I will be seeing it a third time today so I can spend my free movie cash. I would have liked to have seen it four times just so I could make it a tie for the film I have seen most in theatres. If it's still out in the next couple weeks, I may try to go again but three looks like all I will get in. So yeah, I was hoping for five, but I'm happy I at least saw it (or will be seeing it) three times on the big screen. You have to admit...even if you are not a big fan of the film...it's just awesome seeing Michael Myers on the big screen. :D

I've seen it twice already, and don't really think I'll be seeing it a third time though I wouldn't mind doing so; I have never seen a film more than twice in theaters outside of Titanic (don't ask).

I plan on seeing it zero times. I really have no interest in seeing Rob Zombie's spin on Carpenters Halloween. I imagine it would only make me very angry.

Twice was enough for me. I have only seen 2 movies twice in theater now. Spiderman 3 because I was bored so I saw it one day, then went with some people another time. And Halloween, which was almost a requirement to see twice.

Captain Mal
09-29-2007, 02:30 AM
Saw the 3 Lord of the Rings movies twice at the flicks also Interview with a Vampire and H:20.

I'm gonna go see this again on Sunday and I'm looking forward to seeing it with a big crowd. There were like 7 of us in the theatre yesterday.

Lots of Titanic bashing here :) I like that movie.... The fx are amazing, Winslet was on top form and when is Billy Zane not great fun? More to be enjoyed than endured for me.

I ended up seeing it four times, which was a tie for the most times I saw a movie in theaters this year. The other one I saw four times was Harry Potter.

Benny JR
09-29-2007, 04:07 PM
Most likely, I will go see it more than 5 times as I work in a ciname and regularly go in and watch movies on my break. I went to see the full thing tonight and LOVED IT to bits! It was fantatsic and great to finally see a "Halloween" movie on the big screen! I'm only 18, so getting into 18's movies is new to me. Before I was 18, the closest I got was the video store.

I've seen it three times now. I wouldn't mind checking it out once more before it leaves the theatre. All though, I'm a little more excited about seeing H4 & 5 on the big screen. Even if it's just them playing it off of a DVD.

Kinick
10-10-2007, 09:27 AM
I'm going to see it for a second time tonight before it ends over here... I'll be able to make a more precise judgement after tonight as to what I make of it, as well as where it stands in my list no doubt.

I only saw Rob Zombie's Halloween once on it's first open day at the cinema but I did wanted to see it again but I went to Egypt 3 days later and after 2 weeks when I came back I was hoping it will still be showing but was finished showing. Seeing any Halloween film on the big screen is cool exprience and even know I'm not a big fan of Resurrection and RZH but seeing them at the cinema was awesome.
