ICEBREAKER

Trailer

2000 | Action/Drama/Poorly Made | 90mins
At the the Killington ski resort something has gone awry. Evil terrorists led by the sinister Greig have taken the resort hostage with a stolen nuclear device. It’s up to Ski Patrol bum Matt Foster to save the day… and his fiancé.

How did someone think a knockoff of Die Hard with Sean Astin would be a good idea?

It’s that time of the year! Sunday Night Movie Night! Since the holidays are near and the snow is on the ground we figured Icebreaker is the right choice! (boy are we wrong)
Even MJ gives it his seal of approval. So everyone snuggle up in your blanket, pure some eggnog, get that fire going and sit back and enjoy the 2000 Classic, 
Icebreaker!

The Horror Time Capsule – 2000: Scream 3

WEAK

Scream 3 – Weak

Like any good trilogy, there is always one of the films that fails; most of the time at least. “The Godfather Trilogy” had Part 3, “Back to the Future” had Part 3, so I guess it goes to show you that most Part 3’s are pretty bad or just jump the shark entirely. This bring me to “Scream 3” a film that only jumps the shark, but nearly ruins a series that redefined the horror genre.

“Scream 3” is the continuing story of Sidney Prescott and the killer in the Ghostface mask. This time around the movie within a movie “Stab 3: Return to Woodsboro” is in production when people start getting murdered based around the film’s script. Back on the case is Gale Weathers, Deputy Dewey, and a brand new cast of characters.

Overall, this film really lacks the fun and freshness of the first two films, and the story gets so convoluted with new story-lines and “revelations” that is just all becomes too much, and that is exactly the reason “Scream 3” is the lowest rated in the series.

The one bright spot is Park Posey who is playing Gale Weathers in the “Stab” film. I’ve always been a Posey fan, and this is one of her most memorable and fun roles in quite a while.

I won’t spoil the ending for those who still haven’t gotten around to watching “Scream 3” but it’s one of the most ridiculous ones, almost as ridiculous as Sidney seeing her dead mother throughout the film, but that’s neither here nor there….

Do you like scary movies…..well, check out these other films from 2000:
