Scary Movie 3

Now, I am a big fan of Wayans comedy, but even I was glad they gave the third movie to comedy legend David Zucker (Airplane, Hotshots, and Naked Gun). Scary Movie has a lot of the same characters (minus the Wayans bros), there's that Cindy Campbell chick (who is now a tv anchor) and Brenda Meeks (who is now a school teacher, hehe).

One of the first things I noticed was that for each movie that was spoofed, Zucker used the same lighting scheme from that movie. I never remember this happening in the previous 2, Keenan Ivory Wayans kept the lightning scheme constant for the entirity of both films. Maybe I'm just not remembering correctly, but I swear I am.

Back to Zucker, he hasn't done a pure spoof in a while now, but he is not rusty. This spoof rivals hotshots, airplane, or even the naked gun. And you don't even have to know he directed this, because when you see characters getting routinely and randomly hit with blunt objects, you know you're dealing with the same brillant mind that brought you The Naked Gun.

Scary Movie 3 is the best of the series, and I cannot wait for Scary Movie 4. I remember being horrified that they were making a third movie, but I am not horrorified of any more additions.

Okay, I am off to see "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", later.
