What do people think of Freddy's Dead? I know a lot of people don't hold it in very high regard, but I quite like it, more so than the previous two films in fact.
I don't dislike it, it's a marked improvement on most levels over Dream Child. The numerous cameos are good fun, the effects are really pretty slick in places. I saw it in the cinema, and the 3D effects were laughably poor though.

But it's not trying to be a serious horror film, it's supposed to be fun, fantastical and a bit silly like all the sequels from 3 onwards, and it does a good job of that. I think it successfully betters its own low targets, certainly the best attempt since Dream Warriors.
