More Scary Movie?

10.19.2009

Just when you thought it was safe to watch another parody movie...

Okay, that hasn't actually been safe to do since, what, HOT SHOTS? But you couldn't tell that to all the people making the various (FILL IN THE BLANK) MOVIEs. You know, the "parodies" filled with chimp-level humor, dated references and obvious nods to other, better movies.

One of the biggest culprits (and the most profitable) has been the unkillable SCARY MOVIE series, and it sounds like that's still not over yet. It isn't much of a surprise that the wavering Weinstein Company would attempt to continue squeezing life and money from their few successful series (hence SCREAM 4), but Cinema Blend hears that the next SCARY MOVIE will be... a "reboot"?

You may rightfully wonder how they can reboot something that only ever consisted of dim-witted non sequiturs and lowest common denominator pop-culture gags.

Clearly the answer is to kick loose series star Anna Faris, all Wayans family members and anyone else associated with the previous movies that might raise the budget. And then probably give it a name like NEW SCARY MOVIE or, blatantly, SCARY MOVIE REBOOT. Heavy sigh.

Extra Tidbit: Satire isn't dead... but it sure is good at hiding.

The first one was classic, If Shawn Wayans wasn't in it, it would've been perfect.

As long as they don't bring David Zucker back to direct, because 3 and 4 were substantially less funny than the first 2. also if keep Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer away, they might be able to make a pretty funny movie.

Even the first Scary Movie hasn't held up over the years, its the same cheap jokes as the recent spoof movies but it had the benefit of being first so it seemed better. Or maybe I'm just older less easy to amuse.
What I wouldn't give for another Mel Brooks spoof, his were the best. The last somewhat decent spoof I can recall is Walk Hard.

Some good satire

Satire isn't completely gone. Anybody who can, check out Black Dynamite, a spoof movie that is *gasp* actually good!

One more thing

There was one good thing about Spy Hard and that was the them by Wird Al Yankovic.

"In case you came in late
You're watching Spy Hard
This is the theme to Spy hard
You're watching Spy Hard"

No

Hot Shots wasn't bad. I hated how the commercials for "Hot Shots Part Deux" deliberately mispronounced "Deux". (They said "Do the Deux" and pronounced the two words the same way. Deux is pronounced like "Duh". Duh!)

Superhero Movie was actually one of the better parody movies. Remember Date Movie? Disaster Movie? Spy Hard? I'm surprised they got rid of the Wayans after Scary Movie 1 and 2 because 3 and 4 were shit! The scene in 2 ripping off Charlie's Angels (which is istelf a

I'm surprised they got rid of the Wayans after Scary Movie 1 and 2 because 3 and 4 were shit! The scene in 2 ripping off Charlie's Angels (which is istelf a parody movie) was funny. Undercover Brother was also a decent movie in its own right.

the only way this film could be funny is make it a parody of 3D movies.

I'm gonna' put myself in front of the firing squad here by saying that the Scary Movie(s) actually made me laugh quite a bit. They're definitely idiotic, brainless, cheap, shitty flicks that whore themselves out for some extra bucks at the B.O but I'd pick the Scary Movie series over *puke* Superhero Movie or Epic Movie or Dance Flick or Meet The Spartans *puke somemore*.

This whole 'reboot' idea has more in common with horseshit than a real movie though...

Well, on the bright side, maybe they stop using actual talent, thus speeding up their actual demise. Or not.
