Bạn đang xem: Make me shudder 3: ghosts
Let me start by saying that I love these guys. I really do.They"re noisy, brawny, oh-no-they-didn"t B-class teen actors that get by on their looks and/or comedic outrageousness, but still, I can"t help but surrender to lớn their moronic charms...But not even the very soft spot I have for this bunch of loveable idiots, could save this painful mess...Not that the prequels deserve any awards for best movies - but they were kind of funny every now và then và made them watchable. This one... Well... Let"s just say that half of the movie is spent running hence & forth in the dark, sceaming and yelling. (Though, James Vejvongsa has the most epic girly shriek ever... One of the few amusing things about this flick...)The other movies in the series, of course, also contain a huge part of screaming và running - but this got really ridiculous. You were wondering when there would actually be some kind of plot or acting - not just yelling at the top of their lungs until they ran out of breath. (Fortunately, after about 1/3 of the movie, they at least did something WHILE screaming.) Unfortunately - that just didn"t improve the overall experience very much.The story is virtually nonexistent - in contrary to lớn the earlier movies. Their plots were almost as thin as water, but at least there was a beginning, a middle, an end và a specific task/ordeal lớn go through & solve. In this one, there just isn"t. I have no idea why the scriptwriters couldn"t come up with ANYTHING. I gladly volunteer to lớn scribble something up if they"re gonna make a 4th one... (which the ending clearly hints.)It"s a shame that they didn"t give the guys something lớn work with, since they have the knack for comedic slapstick humour & could"ve made this a more amusing watch.Another thing about the story that I disliked, was the uncomfortable Tsunami-setting. I just don"t think enough time has passed since the Boxing Day disaster of 2004, for a horror comedy movie to be made about the particular scenario. (Nor the 2011 Japanese tragedy.)The attempt of redeeming it & trying to turn it into a sad thing instead, just didn"t smooth it out enough for me. I think that relatives & friends of victims from 2004, should stay away from this one because they might find the use of the dead very offensive.It was quite distasteful in my opinion. I felt bothered by it và it affected the movie negatively. Khổng lồ wrap it up - there was SOME kind of story so bottom score isn"t applicable - và I didn"t hate it enough lớn consider it utter trash, so my verdict is 2. A disaster, but not of mega quake magnitude.SFX suck, makeup sucks, directing sucks, script sucks.For the acting - well, I think most of us can agree on the fact that these aren"t guys that will be nominated for any Best Actor awards... (But who knows, there might be some gems among them, that just hasn"t had the opportunity lớn try out any serious roles. That would be interesting lớn find out.) But they ARE gifted with comedic talent & expressivity, as well as shamelessness và guts.Not to mention a LOT of charisma và awesome chemistry in their co acting.With a bit more time, more experience & better directing, many of them might just develop into high unique comedy stars. They work hard and try their best with what they have to lớn work with. So my low rating for the acting isn"t all about their qualities but has a lot to vày with the crappy script và directing. The production wasted their potential. A little plus though, is that many of them are quite pleasant for the eye... ;) Nick Kunatip is quite the eye candy & probably will turn out totally lethal in a couple of years... (Shit, I"m far too old for him, but still, he gives me a nosebleed...)Another little plus in the movies, for me, as an incurable BL-fangirl, is the wink khổng lồ the BL fandom. It"s satirical và obviously makes fun of the huge boy x boy fandom in Asia, but it"s not done in a mocking way, which I really appreciate. The bromance relationship between Brian & Net is quite funny and in this movie they really went all out with different constellations of (ridiculous) mouth khổng lồ mouth methods... Lol... Satire on cultural phenomena is always fun & I love it.Music and score...? Huh? Was there any...? I hardly thought about it. That about says it all.There had to be - so I can"t rate it 1 and it can"t have been appalling since I didn"t react, so I can"t rate it 1 for that either, so I"ll settle for 3.As for rewatch value... Although it"s a crappy movie, there is a possibility that I might watch it again some time if I have nothing better to vì chưng (but there usually are tons of more high chất lượng stuff to lớn devour) but in that case, it"ll be solely enduring it, for my favourite goon squad.Conclusion; If you want something even remotely good - don"t watch.If you want something really funny - don"t watch.If you, like me, love these idiots and can take 95 minutes of junk cinema just to lớn savour the few chất lượng moments of Nick, James & their sidekicks - go for it.
