I watched the movie a couple weeks ago, and I admit, it was pretty good. I watched the previous films, but my memory on it was pretty faded. It has been too long. Never was a die hard fan of the films, but I understand it and I enjoy these kind of movies.
It definitely feels like it goes back to the originals and the CG was done really well. You could tell it was CG, but they did it smoothly, so there was not a huge difference. The humor was great as well. I kind of felt a little guilty laughing at it, but still some morbid and funny sh*t.
It does a good job of introducing newcomers to the film with enough backstory too. Not everyone has watched them all, but can get a rough idea what happen, also very interesting they kept the same actor for the kid of the first 3 films, most movies change actors for the adult version.
Definitely great film. I was a bit skeptical because of the CG, but it proved me wrong.
