Scream 3 She is all right in

Scream 3

She is all right in the movie but the story really doesnt call on her to do much than be a mother and she does that pretty well. She doesnt have a single moment in the movie in which shell make anyone realize why so many of us think shes such a great actress but she is pretty good in it. John C. Reilly has a small role in the movie as the man that owns the apartment and his character is a regular person. hes pretty much what you see is what you get because there is no deep nuisance or twist involving his character what so ever. hes just a man trying to make it in the world. the only character that has any amount of great mystery to him is the man thats suppose to be the janitor or something. I cant remember the name of the actor but there is a pretty nice twist involving his character and why he always seems so aloof. It may be a Japanese remake but its not as stupid or as annoying as The Grudge and I hope more people give it a chance because its really something special. DARK WATER concerns a young woman named Dahlia Williams Jennifer Connelly who is going through a messy custody battle with her husband over their daughter, Cecelia. With little money on hand, they move into the creepiest apartment building they can afford on Roosevelt Island in New York. It is a dank, depressing place, but they dont have much choice. At least the school nearby is highly regarded. Before long, they begin to experience plumbing problems, presumably from the apartment above them. Evil-looking stains appear on the ceiling and grow. Dahlia cant make any headway with the evasive landlord or maintenance man. Then theres the mysterious whispering, and her daughter has seemingly made an imaginary friend who tells her things about her mother that she couldnt possibly know. DARK WATER, like THE RING, is a remake of a Japanese film by Hideo Nakata and based on a story by Koji Suzuki. Unlike THE RING or THE GRUDGE, the other big horror import of the last few years, this version fails to improve on or even equal the quality or effectiveness of the original film. The story hasnt changed, but all the frightening or even creepy moments I remember from Nakatas film are absent. There is no build-up or tension. This film is sorry severely watered down. Moreover, audiences unaware that this is a remake of a film from 2002 are likely to find it too similar to THE RING TWO which was also directed by Nakata, but which was not a remake of the Japanese RING 2 and think it derivative, when in fact its the other way around. If I hadnt seen the Japanese original, Id probably have a much higher opinion of this one.
