    Looks an interesting one this. Looks like most of the budget would have gone to movie and games companies for the image rights, all manner of characters, props and lines used, including Freddie and jason. Mind you, probably didn't cost that much since Hollywood and film companies can't wait to crawl up Spielberg's arse. Anyway, worth a viewing, though the book is supposed to be better

    I have heard a lot of negative things about it so far. I showed the trailer to my wife who seemed to think it looked dreadful. Will probably be one I watch when I can watch it at home.

    Mark Kermode was gushing (as ever with Spielberg movies) about this one on his film review show. It's not something I'll bother to go see in the cinema, but I'll certainly give it a watch when it becomes available on home media.

    I saw this movie last night. I really enjoyed it, as did my partner. Lots of fun pop-culture references, and I barely even questioned why people living in the mid 21st century were so obsessed with the pop culture of the 1980s and even earlier. I won't go further because spoilers but I had a great time.

    Yeah,as a self confessed eighties nostalgic, this would seem like my dream movie, but I dunno
