Friday the 13th Part 1: 6.75/10
My opinion hasn't really changed with F13th Part 1. It's a great entry to the series, and probably the most "polished" one, even though it's errors can be easily found (inconsistent rain in the diner scene, guy not really playing guitar, man hands during decapitation scene, obvious makeup during some death scenes, etc) and the fact that they haven't really optimized the formula quite yet. F13th provides an eclectic soundtrack with some great suspenseful scenes with bloody and original kills, along with a good mystery element.
My minor gripes (though primarily overlooked) are essentially the two deaths that we did not actually see happen (but we did see the cool remains), and the middle part of the movie which seemed rather stagnant of activity. As always, the last section is the best part of the movie when it all wraps together, and even adds a surrealistic quality to it all.
I sat there for a few minutes while the cool smooth synthesizer sad music played during the credits, thinking how much of a solid movie that it turned out to be, despite its slight schlockness with the characters (yes ApolloCreed, this is where the prankster character came from, but he's not as memorable as Part 3's), pacing in the middle, and errors that I typically ignore due to the low budget nature of the film (but mention for sake of curiosity).
This is essentially a flawed classic that is memorable (especially the original soundtrack), unlike the remake. Should be watched every year.
Tomorrow, I shall see the others. I'll try to smack out 2/3 in the same night if I can. Then, I will end with the fan-praised 4 and finish with Freddy vs Jason. After that, it's John Carpenter for the rest of the month, the king of horror.
