way better than the last but not as good as the first
I'd be lying if I said that this was a good movie. I'd also be lying if I said it was a terrible one, in actually its a decent movie that manages to start off horrendously before becoming surprisingly entertaining. Unbeknowest to many of you this little MTV franchise got it's start a few years ago. Me and my friend tuned into the first chapter unintentionally for the most part hoping for a good laugh and found ourselves completely immersed in it. The original was fun, entertaining with some great death scenes, sparky dialogue, a likable heroine and was even a little scary. The second one which I was actually excited about ending up being the opposite of that experience it was dreadfully boring and just kind of awful. Still I crossed my fingers for this entry especially after hearing the positive buzz around it. Well I'm happy to say I liked it way more than the second but it's still not as good as the first. This time around our smart, kick ass heroine Sky is on her way to college when she receives a call from her little sister asking her to come say goodbye before she leaves. She decides to accommodate her when her ride suggests they stop and see her before starting their new lives at college. Upon reaching her house she discovers that it's her sister Alex's sweet 16 and she has invited 5 other firends to join along in the festivities. Up until than it's been cute and than we are introduced to this cast of mostly terrible actors whose actual characters are annoying. That being said the cute guy with the curly hair isn't so bad and even though the young woman who plays Alex herself is not great they do manage some good moments from most of them, well except from the girl with faux fur coat. After the killing begins the movie picks up again cleverly I might add and although the victims make a ton of annoying mistakes it all comes down to an inspired finale and a zesty fight scene. And while I'm complimenting the film I must bring up the beautiful camera work going on here. sure most of it is unnecessary especially in a film like this but it's hard not to appreciate those wonderfully suspenseful angles and hitchcockian tracking shots of surprising density and quality for a movie like this. So the movie is a mixed bag as most movies are but if they do decide on another entry which I wouldn't be against we might think of changing the title. After all how many super psycho sweet 16s can you have but Sky's story is something I'd def be interested in seeing continue.
