Scream 3 (2000)
A murdering spree begins to happen again, this time its targeted toward the original Woodsboro survivors and those associated with the movie inside a movie, 'Stab 3'. Sydney must face the demons of her past to stop the killer.
To me, this movie is perfection.
A great movie, one of the best of this year. There was a bit of confusion at one point in the plot, but nothing serious.
I didn’t really have many expectations going into the movie (good or bad), but I actually really enjoyed it. I really liked the characters and the banter between them.
It is neither dumb nor smart enough to be fun, and spends way too much time with its boring human characters.
Scream 3 is so underrated and bashed from fan boys. I love this film to death I enjoy this film I have watch it with my dad. It is an underrated gem my personal favorite sequel in the "Scream" franchise series. It is an improvement over the second one. Sidney Prescott is a such a bad-ass, you have for the first time in the movie an explosion you see a house been blowed up. The plot and the story is set the first time in Hollywood. I love that it is an original story, it does not copy the second or the first film, it doesn't mess with the first two movies. It does finish the trilogy and brings an ending conclusion to the franchise. I enjoy this film, I love this film to death. Wes Craven did a great direction debut. Ehren Kruger replaced Kevin Williamson thank god and he did much better job to make an original story and make an conclusion to end the trilogy. I love with what happened next with the characters: Sidney now is a crisis counselor, I liked that. Ghostface returns he has unfinished business with Sidney and he wants her back. Dewey Riley is now working as an film adviser In Hollywood. I love his character, this time around David Arquette was better actor in this movie. I love that they did something new with his character, he wasn't annoying, he wasn't useless, he was good. He shot with a hand gun and killed the killer on the end, a real hero in this movie. Patrick Dempsey as detective Mark Kincaid was great he was likable and I have enjoyed him. I love his character. I love Jenny McCarthy as Sarah Darling she was believable. The movie was not dull, lame, or repainting the same story again, it had less humor, more horror, mystery and action it was mixed it had that what the second movie didn't had. The story is set three years after Scream 2 Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), who has gone into self-imposed isolation following the events of the previous two films is drawn to Hollywood yet again she returns again to face the past and find out who is responsible for her mother's death. The new Ghostface begins killing the cast of the film within a film Stab 3 and has a score to stale with Sidney Prescott. Dewey Riley and Gale Waethers are trying to find out who is responsible for the killings. Gale has an unlikely sidekick Parker Posey as Jennifer Jolie. Courtney Cox is excellent as always as Gale Weathers. 10/10 I personally enjoy this sequel it is my favorite sequel in the franchise. Lance Henriksen is in this movie too and he is believable. I love the setting, the story and I love Sidney she is a bad-ass and I love happy ending, I love the trilogy to death and I love this movie to death sue me!
While Sidney and her friends visit the Hollywood set of Stab 3, the third film based on the Woodsboro murders, a new Ghostface begins to terrorize them once again. Scream 3 is once again directed by Wes Craven and stars and Neve Campbell my biggest problem with this film is that it's not as strong as the previous 2 films and Ghostface is not as strong as he was before with Stuart, Billy and Mickey but the film still packs some punches for example the beginning of the film, that scene with the mirrors and Parker Posey or even cameos like Carrie Fisher. Scream 3 is basically the Rocky V of the Franchise neither bad or awful but neither great or amazing just a good sequel with some pretty good moments in it.
The low point of Wes Craven's Scream franchise has got to fall onto Scream 3. Although Craven sticks to a story-line that is very much connected to the first two films, it is well from polished. The Hollywood angle and certain character developments, mostly Dewey, were a little cornball. Perhaps the most laughable, eye-rolling spectacle was a cameo scene by, minor spoiler Jay and Silent Bob. That was definitely a what the hell is that for moment. However, Scream never does turn away from a bit of comedy and Scream 3 did provide some funny lines and creative twists. Along with the story-line, the newly introduced supporting cast was perhaps the worst aspect of the film. Besides the main four returning cast members (Campbell, Cox, Arquette and Schreiber), there wasn't one actor or actress who stepped up to the plate to bring out a good role. The ending isn't totally predictable but it isn't as sly as the first two. Scream 3 is still enjoyable but is a weaker film, one of Craven's overall bottom films.
Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson return for the third installment of the slasher horror that pleased critics and horror fans all around the country in the 90s, only this time, lot less fun or exciting than the previous two. Neve Campbell returns as Sidney Prescott who now works as a crisis counselor and is living isolated deep in the woodsy area of California, traumatized by the violent Woodsboro murders from the first two movies. Back in her hometown, Hollywood director Roman Bridger (played by Scott Foley) is working on slasher horror titled 'Stab 3' based on the Woodsboro murders. The production quickly goes awry when Ghostface makes his return and begins murdering the cast one-by-one. Sidney teams up with Gale (played by Courtney Cox) and Dewey Riley (played by David Arquette) to stop Ghostface's murderous onslaught once and for all.As this is the third installment of the series, there is lots of discussion about movie trilogies, and basically what the characters claim is that the third installment in a film series is about going back to the past and learning a shocking truth of what happened in the first film. We are also introduced to a set of new characters, most of which are very one-dimensional other than Parker Posey and Scott Foley's character. Compared to the previous two films, this one marks a low point for the series. The plot is much less clever and less original, and is completely devoid of scares or good humor. While the plot centers on the characters trying to solve the murders of the cast of the (fictional)movie 'Stab 3', the film throws a huge, needless sub plot of detectives trying to solve of Sidney's mother who was murdered which is made the plot so uneven. To make matters worse, Sidney has reduced screen time and appears in no more than half of the scenes, while the film focuses on Gale, Dewey, and these other new characters. The only thing redeeming about this film is the big twist at the end. Other than that, this film lacks the spirit and scares of the previous movies.Scream 3 is definitely my least favorite of the series and one of the most disappointing third installments I have seen. Unless you are a huge fan of the series, this one is probably worth staying away from.
