What makes The Shape is that he was just a guy who chose Laurie at random in the original.
Of course, you can also blame Carpenter for having a few beers and making up the sister angle for the sequel, which was never an intention when he made the original in 1978.
You are so right dude! I feel like your writing straight from my mind! I am completely into the part 1 concepts vs what they made it, do to greed and a six pack...
Laurie at random was the greatest storyline because it coulda been any of us. Now it's a cliche hokie slasher franchise which is fun to watch. Never a master piece though.
Abrax now youre talking about clones and stuff, I can't compete with completely 3rd party theories. That's a whole thing of your own. You can make seance of all this however you'd like. Thats very cool However as far as the facts and set in stone reality goes, I feel I am correct. Everyone doesnt have to think or feel like me though. That's why everyone is different and I except people for who they are.
Yeah they really ran in the wrong direction with it IMO. Personally I always thought the whole Samhain part was in a way trying to give credence to Michael not being human but instead just plain evil and how that evil is connected to the season of Halloween. Death is a part of the Halloween time of year when you think about it, its the beginning of the season when everything begins to die when the harvest is over and all the crops and everything begin to die off. Maybe thats the message they were trying to send that Michael was a metaphor for the death that always happens around that time of year.

Resurrection was pretty bad and got my vote. It ruined the great ending to H20 and the whole webcam show with Busta Rhymes was just horrible. I did enjoy the portrayal of Michael Myers by Brad Loree. He looked good and moved right. Too bad he was used in such a bad Halloween film.
I don't really like the Rob Zombie films. Like Jeremy said earlier, the man has a good ability for visuals. I think Rob Zombie is fine at making music videos, but anything longer than five or six minutes and the man is floundering. That said, they automatically are the worst to me, but since I don't count them as part of the original series, I'll exclude them.
Of the original series, I would say III because it is so different and has no Michael Myers, but when you realize Halloween was supposed to be a stand alone series, you kind of forgive or overlook it. And, by itself, III isn't a terrible film, it's just not what people had just started to expect, so the quest is till on.
I enjoy the original, I think we all do. The second film is pretty good as well, not necessary, but I consider it Halloween extended. The fourth film isn't a masterpiece but it does open up well, but it definitely has one of my least favorite-looking masks in the entire series. The sixth film, while cluttered, has some interesting tidbits to it, and I find something new watching it, each time that I do.
This leaves Halloween 5, Halloween: H20, and Halloween Resurrection. Easily H20 can be removed from this, as I enjoyed some aspects of that film, and it felt like a Halloween film. This leaves 5 and Resurrection...
Now, I didn't expect much out of Resurrection. Busta Rhymes and how the series had been dwindling told me that, while with 5, as a kid seeing it, I wasn't expecting a masterpiece but I was expecting something decent. Resurrection, as bad as it is, has great use of the Michael Myers character, as Kyle mentioned, but it was just used in a terrible film. 5 though, it has a lot of issues and, at times, is very boring and repetitive.
In the end, it comes down to one thing. Which would I have to tap out and stop watching first, if I had to watch both side by side, over and over and over and over and over and over and over again?
Halloween 5. Resurrection, as bad as it may be, at least leaves one able to laugh at it. Halloween 5 though, well... it's just kind of boring.
