I am so confused. So...the soul of Jack Frost...plus his killability, were embodied in that carrot. Which ended up on a raft in the ocean. Because science. And the carrot came to life once it was handled, and was capable of impaling multiple people, despite, once again, being a carrot. Even though I'm very confident, based on first-hand experience, that you cannot impale someone in the vitals with a carrot. Next you're gonna tell me that you can destroy a skyscraper by shooting a cantaloupe out of a cannon."...When he encounters the real villain of the film."The waiter from Office Space?And now the carrot can create icicles in a trop...ical.....shoudn't there always be SOME semblance of logic to a horror film? Even a comedy? A revenant janitor killing teenagers in their dreams suddenly seems like Ken Burns after this. And now it's officially an Asylum film. Good gravy.OK, now the waiter has become Firemarshall Bill (seriously, splice "LET ME SHOW YOU SOMETHING!!! into that hopping-into-bed thing. It'd work). Who WOULD be a terrifying, and very, very typical villain for a horror film, considering. Not like Jim Carrey is doing much else worthwhile these days. Hmm....Now...the carrot is ice. Instead of being a carrot. Ugghhhh....I would so give up on this movie at this point. Good thing I'm only watching a review.OK, the snowball-arm thing won me back.Was there any explanation given for how now, suddenly, Jack can reproduce? Apparently asexually? Antifreeze makes him pregnant? Is the snowman made of antifreeze? Does anything in this movie make the slightest lick of sense?

I did gloss over some things but they do give out a few explanations. In the first movie, Sam had a cut and when he melted Jack in the antifreeze, they shared some DNA. With that, Jack was able to track where Sam was. (hence, how he got to the island) This also explained how he was killed by the banana, since Sam was allergic to bananas. When Jack fell in the antifreeze, he mutated as a reaction to something weird that the scientists did to him at the lab. That's about the best explanation they gave with that one. It doesn't make too much sense but they explain just enough to keep you going to the next silly encounter.

It's interesting to see these different takes, you've reviewed a few movies that Phelous has also reviewed, but of course he did them negativity.It's hard to read Phelous sometimes though, did he really hate these movies? Or did he review them as a character that does?

Honestly, I'm not sure if its his character that dislikes them or if he dislikes them. I don't know him personally but I know Lupa so I'll ask her.

Mr. Haney's digging graves now? This confirms my suspicions that there was an unspoken dark side to Hooterville. And now I just gave Hollywood a new idea for a gritty reboot. I'll shut up now...After years of passing by these titles in my local rental, I now have the incentive to check out these two JF films. I think your editing job was just fine, for all the work you said went into this. Thanks for making me a fresh fan of these, Cecil (as you often do), and have fun this season!Apparently those killer baby snowballs were pills in a previous life who sang about not being candy.

I left out a few things here and there so you should be able to see Jack 1-2 and still have a good time. Thanks! This one was a bear, I'm so happy to have it over with! Hope you have a good holiday as well. :)Haha! Perhaps they can share a gig with the talking hotdog.
