NO ONE, will ever be better then Robert Englund as Freddy, no matter what movie makers do, they can never make another real freddy!

i don't really think you can compare the two, because it's almost like they're palying to different characters. Robert Englund was funny Freddy, and Jackie Earl Haley is playing serious Freddy. when you take away the comedy of the original character, he almost becomes a different person. plus, i haven't seen the movie yet, so i can't really say much

IMO Robert England IS Freddy.

Everyone has their own opinion, as I saw all of you on here as an example. To me, if America gets used to a character, the character becomes one of us sort of speak. If all of a sudden there is someone else new that takes over, it sucks all the joy, compassion, relativity all out of them AND us. The new Freddy might be better, in a sense that, yes, he is more serious and violent as we seen in the previews than the more jokeful and one-line Robert Englund. But Robert is the one I'm sure most of you grew up on and began to love. Every single each one of you has their own opinion. We wouldn't be America if we didn't. Keep those comments comin cause I wanna hear everyone's thoughts. Laughing

to respond to the question (not the ongoing discussion):I am open to someone reinventing the character, because we don't need a poor copy of Englund's freddy.I would RATHER someone does something different, though, otherwise it IS just rehash and stealing someone elses' character.

 one of my favorite aspects of Englund's performance was the dark humor he brought to the role of Freddy.I haven't watched the new film yet, just trailers,and the actor seems to be more menacing without one liners.I kind of like that whole Loki trickster aspect of Freddy, so we'll see.

Robert Englund was great in the original. They made him too cheesy and campy in the sequels, IMO. I think this one is going to be more serious, with the direction focusing on Freddy being accused and burned by the towns people.

I think it's gonna be a good flick. I can't wait to see it.
