That last part most definitely isn't a bad thing. Imo, the original sequels are all shit, except for maybe part two, & that's due largely to Bill Moseley.

I see people saying they're pissed at this movie for not "living up to the original" but if that's the case, you should equally hate every film in the franchise & 70% of other horror movies for not doing the same.

And no, I'm not saying people should lower their expectations in terms of wanting a good ol' quality film, but this one certainly isn't as bad as many are stating. To me, I feel it's quite a bit over-exaggerated.

But, don't take this post the wrong way, I'm not saying anyone is wrong for not liking the movie or anything of that nature because everyone has their own likes/dislikes, I'm just stating my thoughts on the matter.

Did we see the same movie?

At least those early sequels were self-aware. This movie tried to play its concept straight and it came across and idiotic and confusing. As I've said before, if it were made as a satire or spoof I would have loved it. TCM 3D confounded me on how dumb it was.

TCM Part 2 is mostly a comedy, and clearly it works as such.

Leatherface is actually a pretty underrated movie, and it also works more as a horror film (especially the unrated version).

TCM 3D is the most unnecessary of them all. First it ropes us in by being a direct sequel, than it makes no sense as a direct sequel (timeline bullshit), and lastly it creates so many tangents that it isn't even recognizable as being in the same universe as the original (randomly creating tons of characters that supposedly had a major impact on the Sawyer family just so we have a reason to continue the story). On top of all of those things, the acting is laughably bad and the script shockingly inept and idiotic. This movie is the definition of silly (Do yer thing cuz!)

Damn son, this movie makes me unhappy.

If you enjoyed this movie for what it is, cool. I can respect that, but to try to defend this movie in anyway is just silly. TCM 3D is a horrible movie, one of the poorist examples of film making I have ever seen... ever.

Pretty much. Clearly people enjoyed this a lot, I just couldn't see past the glaring problems. I wasn't even expecting much of anything, just a lot of dumb fun. About 45 minutes in I just couldn't be entertained by this, not even in a B-movie sort of way.

After all I have said, I 100% promise I will buy this movie someday. To try to see the fun in it, and to complete my TCM collection.

I'm not saying TCM 3D is a smart movie, not at all, but I still found it to be better than those sequels because it wasn't as goofy as they were. I don't take the film totally seriously, or look at it as some masterpiece, just generic slasher fun, done in a better way than most who choose to oblige by the general horror cliches & such as it were.

Yeah, but I don't recall the original being meant to be a comedy, so that whole aspect of the film threw me off entirely. But, like I said before, Bill Moseley was great in it, per usual.

Just couldn't get into it. Different strokes for different folks, but I just couldn't find myself being entertained by it....like, at all.

All of the films have continuity errors, as with...well, pretty much every horror franchise. I will agree that the writing could've been much better (that's what happens when Adam Marcus writes an original treatment) but I've heard/seen a lot worse.

I don't know, maybe I came out enjoying the movie more than most because I lowered my expectations. Again, is the movie better than the original? Absolutely not. Is it the greatest horror movie that we've gotten in recent memory? Hell fuck no. But is it entertaining & better than a handful of the TCM sequels? I'd say yes.

Hell, if we want to talk about "alternate universes" we can look at The Beginning. I love the movie, but it feels nothing like the world that was set up in the remake. It lacks the grisly, creepy feel of the remake, & feels like a completely different iteration, rather than a prequel to the events we saw in said remake. And the original sequels are quite guilty of doing this as well, so you can't really blame TCM 3D for doing it too.

I usually get hell from folks but honestly that's probably my 2nd favorite of the series. I would agree that its underrated (to me and you anyways and glad to see I'm not in the minority anymore).
