|Title:||Silent Night, Deadly Night 3: Better Watch Out|
|07.23.08||Weird Wednesday|| Then I stayed for this Weird Wednesday, which apparently Hellman did as a favor to a dear friend. Afterward, longtime Alamo regular Joe came up and said "I think Two Lane Blacktop was better" and we all laughed. It's pretty weird to think of the same guy doing both movies. They do share similar pacing but that's about it. Not much happens in this movie unless you like Bill Moseley walking around with a brain dome.|
There are flashbacks to the first film though which reminded me of how cool that one is, and with both Richard Beymer and a super-permed Eric DaRe here I got a strange Twin Peaks vibe, especially with Laura Harring showing up about halfway through. Everybody says that Robert Culp's small role is the highlight of the film and I'd have to agree. I couldn't help but doze in and out of somewhere around half the movie but I seem to remember him talking about his cell phone plan and laughing at his own punchline to a deja vu joke. That, along with Moseley saying "And a happy new year!" at the end were bizarre highlights of a hazy memory.
It was fun to stand around and talk about the movie a bit after it let out just like old times. A taste of them at least.
