This movie was dumb mindless fun. Freddy should have killed 1 or 2 people more though.

WulfGang

I couldn’t agree more aboot Freddy, someone actually did a comparison between Freddy Jason and Michael Myersto figure out who’s killed the most people. Freddy came in last because he only killed on person in this movie.

One of reason why there is so many “vs” movies nowadays is because publishers find a way to make them. Outside cases when no one give a shit like in case of this movie one of reason why people want see those movies are because of dick measurement instinct. Problem is that any publisher and fan don’t want his character to be inferior.. hard thing to make. And not everyone is Frank Miller to completely remake disliked character to justify superiority of own favorite.. but at least DC own both of them and have system to flush all such mistakes… Read more »

They made up his lack of kills with nightmare sequences, still not cool…

The comedy bit about Sadako Vs Kayako is actually happening, in Japan

Omg, that’s sounds so terribly funny

What are you talking about Critic, there are tons of R rated horror movies, like a the time. Your just watching the wrong movies.

Dasha

Such as?

CrisJoe
Guest

I’m kind of confused with the Kingdom Hearts RE:Coded reference. Is it because the story is kind of fucked up and has psychological elements that would normally be in a horror story?

vetom
Guest

no he’s implying it sucks

Hardback247
Guest

He bashed the Kingdom Hearts series? Unforgivable!

Spooderman
Guest

Think he just bashed that specific game in the Kingdom Hearts series.

Hardback247
Guest

I had no idea he had knowledge about Kingdom Hearts.

MountCDOSgamer
Guest

Or maybe, you know, that one game in the series?

Yin Knight
Guest

Eh, the series, when you get down to it, is just a bunch of Disney movie recaps, so really, I’m not bothered by it. Making another jab at Pokémon, now THAT deserves vitriol.

Harryhenry
Guest

You do know that in this case acting so vitriolic about his tongue-in-cheek pokemon bashing will just encourage him to put in more of it?

Yin Knight
Guest

It’s not funny, it’s NEVER been funny, it’s never GOING TO be funny except maybe to Doug whom I imagine still laughs himself unconscious at these jokes which he KNOWS are going to piss people off, so therefore, to him, it MUST count as funny.

Dasha
Guest

It IS funny. The more people whine and complain about poking fun at something, the more writers know they’re hitting the right nerves.

tyrong kojy
Guest

Eh, the whole series at this point is kind of a jumbled, unbelievable mess, especially with all the rereleases that need to be replayed, what with all the new, story based content they add every time. It’s why I’m waiting for KH3 Final Mix +++ Ultimate Capcom Limited Edition EX Z to come out before I try to get back into it.

Rezro
Guest

Unbelievable? Fantasy? Did you seriously point out that as problem? What next? Horror is scary would be a problem? And even if I do agree that Kingdom Hearts is overrated this story isn’t that hard to fallow.. if you aren’t an idiot.

Ryansg92

I think the joke is that it Disney cross with Anime.

Rezro

You are aware that anime was in fact highly influenced by Disney on the first place? Oh sweet ignorance..

How dare people use video games to be social and congregate and exercise to be fit, right? MONSTERS

vetom
Guest

meh, it was mostly against ash, F*CK ASH!!! it’s all about Red.

traumachic
Guest

Socialize? I saw more people staring at their phones, neglecting their kids in searing summer heat and actually got screamed at when I requested a moratorium on the Pokemon convo for one measly weekend, how’s that social? It was dumb in the 90s, its dumb now; that’s my opinion.

Dasha
Guest

Be fit? Yeah those kids are getting huge amounts of exercise being driven around Pokemon hotspots.

Blayshy
Guest

Funny, given how, even through I hate his Pokemon bashing, I laughed at the Ash vs Ash joke.

RedMilleniumRanger
Guest

Not as gold As Pokemon GO to the polls.

Alysa
Guest

I agree that the movie should have focused more on the fighting between Freddy and Jason, rather than the teenagers I barely remember the names too (even though they repeat the names over and over). I hope the Freddy vs Jason sequel focuses more on the action. I’m so excited, though the official release date hasn’t been announced yet.

mr.keys
Guest

Where have you heard they are making a sequel? A sequel at this point is highly unlikely for several reasons.

Alysa
Guest

I have been seeing a lot of hype that a sequel will happen sometime in 2017. I have seen it in line with a lot of upcoming horror movies.

mawzedd
Guest

They made a sequel with Freddy vs Jason vs Ash, which is a lot better than the movie.

Le Messor
Guest

It’s a comic book.
(Just thought I should clarify, in case anyone reads that and goes looking for a movie.)

Acetylsalicilique
Guest

As a Zack Snyder, I am offended by the comparaison.

That review was fun btw.

RedMilleniumRanger
Guest

Huh, I didn’t realize there was more than one Zack Snyder.

Raptor Rex
Guest

Even if they did want to include teenagers as characters, they really should have done their homework by looking at previous movies to make them more likable and not just kill fodder.

And, okay Doug I get it, you have a problem with PG-13, but it can still work to it’s advantage. Besides it’s kind of ironic to add Bay and Snyder since they also directed R-rated shlock.

Hardback247
Guest

Yeah, I don’t get why he feels the need to call out on them like that.

Movie-Brat
Guest

The other films had them as kill fodder. Doug is picky.

Raptor Rex
Guest

If I may ask, what do people disagree with me on exactly?

Dasha
Guest
He has a problem with the over-proliferation of PG-13 movies. Especially ones made by people called Snyder or Bay (to be honest, their films are terrible regardless of rating). He was highlighting that once upon a time, movies of ALL classifications were made, and people would go and see ones that were appropriate for them and their children. Now, everything is either cut to effing ribbons to squeeze a PG-13 rating out of the BBFC (that’s the film classification people in the UK), or is cramming smutty crap into films that really should be rated 15. 18 rated films seem… Read more »

WHY DID THEY GO ALL IN ON DAVID PUMPKINS!?!?

NerdCritic

Honestly this movie was a tad bit greater than AVP 2. AVP was awesome then the fucking sequel killed it.

darkwynd
Guest

Is it just me or there’s more videogame references in this review than usual? I’m not complaining, just something I noticed.

Blueman
Guest

Does anyone else gets the feeling Doug is having too much fun making fun of Pokemon?

ychipz
Guest

as in hes trying his best to be funny with a joke thats 20 years late? I agree

Dasha
Guest

20 years late? You aren’t seeing all the kids watching Pokemon and playing Pokemon Go, then?

This movie was supposed to be dumb, I can’t really hate on it.

TimidTabby84
Guest
Yeah; this movie was nothing more than dumb fun to please both fans begging for the crossover to happen, but at least it’s still for the most part entertaining enough to watch once in a while even if it’s just for the laughable bits. One defense for the movie though: How early into a film would you want Freddy and Jason to start fighting? I feel like NC is being too serious that everyone was expecting the two iconic monsters to start swinging their claws or machetes around 30 or even 15 mins into the film. But that would be… Read more »
Molly Piper

Honestly, my biggest problem with this movie is that I felt that they got too excited over having a big budget and CGI, and they went overboard. Also, why the Kingdom Hearts smackdown?

mr.keys
Guest

Yeah, he pretty much echoed my exact thoughts on the movie.

The fighting is AWESOME, but everything else is just meh.

Though I have to disagree with his complaint of not enough fighting. They practically spend the entire third of the movie fighting, in the dream world and at camp crystal lake, they totally cut each other to ribbons!

I remember being completely floored in the theater while watching it. Personally, it was one of the most satisfying theatrical experiences I ever had.

ErichoTTA
Guest

Hey, you killed Pokemon again! Thanks for doing something so awful my mind was taken off by how Dipper didn’t get with Pacifica! I agree this movie was just okay. I was really surprised you didn’t make any jokes about how Freddy only got one kill. That was probably the dumbest thing in the whole movie for me. There’s an endless supply of slasher movies out there to review, as these guys don’t stay dead.

Timekeeper
Guest

I really like DevilBoner\HyperFanGirl idea. But, I don’t this movie would be better, if it would be about Freddy and Jason only.

French Amy
Guest

Great review! Really funny!!!

Mayhem66
Guest
The problem with the “vs.” fighting through the entire movie is that it would get old and tedious after a while. How long could a pro wrestling match go on before you started looking at your watch, wondering when it would end? Even the best can only go a half-hour or so at the longest. Something like Predator vs Aliens can work with it because there are numerous ones of each. With singular combatants, it’s another story. People complained about 2014 Godzilla, but he and the MUTO had at least as much screen time as the monsters in the older… Read more »
ygoraphobic
Guest
Definitely agree. The fact they limited the actual confrontations to twice in the movie, once in the dream world and once in the real world I thought was perfect. Both got a lot of screen time outside of their fights. The problem was the bad writing. They really were going not just for a Freddy vs. Jason theme but really a franchise vs. franchise theme in which elements of both NoES and F13 were represented. I think the story pretense worked in that Freddy brought Jason in to make people afraid again so he could regain power. What didn’t work… Read more »

Welp, I just discovered that if you search ‘lilo and stitch’ on IMDB, the Nostalgia Critic’s Disneycember review of the movie appears before the movie itself. I’m starting to realise why Doug told us to look it up…

Spooderman
Guest

Oh my gosh, he put those two classic jokes in there.

Surprised he didn’t mention Michael Bay’s involvement with the reboots, despite having the Michael Bay character in the review. Especially when he was roasting him and Snyder for their apparent affinity for PG-13 movies, despite those reboots being R and both of them having worked on other R films…

Dasha
Guest

Just having worked on R films doesn’t change their strange affinity for PG-13 films crammed with inappropriate innuendo. Bay and Snyder could make any kind of rated movie and it would suck. Won’t see any of them near the Marvel MCU (on account of Marvel wanting those films to be good).

SpeedyEric

1. I still love Freddy vs. Jason. It’s one of the first horror films I rented at the video store.
2. For the love of God, Doug, enough of the Michael Bay/Zack Snyder bashing already.
3. Have fun with the next commercials episode.

Dasha
Guest

I’m quite happy with lots more Bay/Snyder bashing. They don’t get enough.

“Freddy vs Jason” was teased at the end of “Jason Goes to Hell”. Slightly older than that was RoboCop vs Terminator. However Aliens vs Predator predates them both by a decade.

Friday the 13th The Series was not connected to the movies. Instead it dealt with tracking down cursed objects that had been sold by a demonic antiques store. It was a really good show.

Springwood is in Ohio. Camp Crystal Lake (or Forest Green) is in New Jersey. Roughly 560 miles apart, and would take almost 9 hours to dive.

TheSKARD1
Guest

Err… I mean drive.
An excessively long dive was what lead to the problems at the camp.

Fretzers

Hey! That nerdy kid was… Bottler from Fanboys lol nice!

Fretzers

Oh and the bully from Christmas Story (Zack Ward) was in Titus at the time of the movie. A HILARIOUS short lived Fox show that is actually worth your time. Legit.

aurum-femina
Guest

Surprised you didn’t cover the movie’s bias. Jason kills leagues more people (Freddy only kills the bathroom guy), the teens start having their own argument about who’s better and they pick Jason (even though they should be more concerned that he’s been killing more of them, and they kinda start sympathizing with him??), and Jason wins at the end. x))

XDeadManJoeX

Technically Freddy beat Jason (last man standing), then the kids beat Freddy

Heyy, Knights of the Old Republic! Great game, good memories.
