Very fun!, 28 April 2000

This made for TV flick that can often be seen on the Disney Channel was a real treat. It's based on the 1975 Escape to Witch Mountain, but it's got new special effects. I liked this one better than the first. The acting is much better and special effects are far, far improved. Robert Vaughn plays the part of an evil millionaire who wants to use two twins that have magical powers for his own gain. They are called by an unknown force to Witch Mountain for an unknown reason. Check it out! It's really fun to watch!

Scream 3 (2000)
A great finisher with a bad finish., 4 February 2000

Scream 3 is here. Was it worth it? Oh yes, but I have my guffs and I want to share them with you.

Without spoiling any of the details of the movie, I will just sum it up that the Sindey character is still the 'target' of the killer, but the main focus of the movie seems to be on the Gail and Dewy characters. They have almost twice as much screen time as Sindey does.

This is a problem. It seems like the writers couldn't figure anything out for the Sindey character to do. It's as if they thought Neve Campbell wouldn't do part 3, wrote a script without the Sindey character in it, and when she signed on to do the film, put her in the script anywhere they could.

Now for the fun part. Scream 3 is a lot more scary then the first two were. There were far more "jumps" from myself and my friends then there were viewing the first two films. It's all the classic "get ready to jump out of your seat" stuff that horror movies make their money on, but far more false starts then any other scary movie then I have ever seen! By false starts I mean "YIKES, IT'S THE KILLER! No wait, that's not the killer... YIKES!" You get it. Be ready to be on the edge of your seat at all times. Avoid holding an open container!

Now here comes the big letdown: the ending. The first Scream had a wonderful ending. The second Scream had a very bad ending. Scream 3's ending was down right awful. Be set to be disappointed.

Still, anyone who likes the "jumps" that horror movies provide, then Scream 3 is right for you. This is a must see for people who enjoyed the first two, simply because this is it for the series... I hope.
