Scary Movie 3

Strange things are happening and Cindy Campbell (Anna Faris) is the reportor on duty who wants to dig into these phenomena and find out what’s really going on but while she has only seven days before she will die due to watching a killer videotape, she has to stop an alien invasion and meanwhile she’s also falling in love with a white wannabe-rapper.

Sound and Vision:
RCV has done a good job with the image quality as except for some very minor grain and moiré we didn’t spot any problems what so ever. Contrast, detail, depth, … everything is above standard.

The soundtrack is dynamic and has a lot of direction. However, it’s never aggressive so don’t expect to be blown out of your chair. Dialogues are at all times perfectly understandable while both subwoofer and surround speakers get their piece of the action.

Extras:
The first disc only contains some trailers and the movie. The extras are found on the second disc :
– Alternate Ending
– Deleted Scenes
– Outtakes / Bloopers
– Making of Featurette: Behind the scenes footage aswell as interview fragments with cast & crew. The usual promo feature…
– The Making of Scary Movie 3 for Real!: a very short and more ridiculous “Making Of”
– Hulk vs. Alien: short feature on the alternate ending

Conclusion:
In general, I’m not really a fan of this type of movies. The humour is flat, obvious and cheap while the storyline is stupid, the acting below par and the complete movie looks like a collage of different scenes. Not with Scary Movie 3 though. For the first time in a long while I’ve actually enjoyed myself while watching a parody with this DVD. Ok, overacting is still there, and all the things mentioned above are present. However, with Scary Movie 3 it didn’t bother me as everything fell together as pieces of a puzzle. Funny stuff from RCV that gets accompanied with a bunch of extras (some more funny and/or interesting than others) and decent image & sound quality. Must-have for the fans, definite rental for the rest.

Our Score:
7.0
