These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan
Awesome Music: Fred Mollin's score is hit-or-miss... but the jazzy piece that plays when Rennie and Sean are in Times Square is so bittersweetly beautiful it can bring tears to your eyes.
Critical Research Failure: Jason sails a boat to the local harbor... from a lake. He sails a boat... to the ocean... from a closed body of water in the middle of a forest.
Apparently the sewer system in New York city get flooded with toxic waste every night.
Ensemble Darkhorse: Julius, partially for being an amusing Bad Ass who fights back against Jason and partially for his awesome death
Eva is pretty popular too for not being a shallow stereotype and especially for being played by Kelly Hu
Hilarious in Hindsight: Jason (played by Kane Hodder) chases the protagonists to a diner, where a huge chef tries stop him and gets thrown across the room for his trouble. Actor playing that huge chef? Ken Kirzinger, the stuntman who would later replace Kane Hodder as Jason in Freddy vs. Jason.
Narm: Jason screaming in some odd animal noise after his mask is removed.
Jason pushing the fire alarm after a fire started.....that he caused.
Nightmare Fuel: Eva's death, because Jason forgoes using any weapons and strangles her with his bare hands. It's not the most bloody death in the movie, and while Jason has used his bare hands before, it just seems to take so much longer than the other deaths, and Eva is forced to look into her killer's eyes as she died.
The Scrappy: While most of the final girls have a few fans, no one likes Rennie. Mostly because of her bland, shallow characterization, terrible actress, and her repetitive, unmemorable backstory
