Did I miss something?
4 is Oblivion right? The one where NOTHING happens!?
I think people just want to think they're intellectual-because that shit was unwatchable.
3 was entertaining and the first Phantasm movie I saw-rented it on VHS at a sleepover when I was 12 back in the early 90's.

So you can call Phantasm II "coma inducing" but I find it far more watchable than 3.

Well, for something to be annoying- it must be overbearing or grating in some way. The characterization of Tim was extremely subdued. Extremely. The actor was not yelling or spouting off one-liners or being precocious or a knowitall. Pretty much the exact same thing with Rocky.
Were you drunk or high or something when you saw this and you imagined a different set of characters? Because, these characters were not annoying. Obviously, it's your call to say they were ineffective and you didn't care about them or didn't want to see them there. But you need actual criteria to characterize them as annoying.
And, yes, I still say the characters in Phantasm II were bores. I don't get why anyone calls it the action-horror sequel because the one thing the film did right is the whole "ghost town" section. The cinematography and camerawork were great but the story and characters were lousy. A lot of fat could have been trimmed by removing the Priest and all that pointless garbage from the flick- that guy was a drain. Only there to up the body count. And since his "story" ties in with the blonde, he robbed her of anything interesting to do either.
Just 'cuz, you should be reading it.
