Part Three of what I am quite amused to call “The Cars Trilogy” is out, and I’m unsure what to think of the reviews.  On the one hand, it’s getting better reviews than 2, but on the other, third installments aren’t often heralded as the best part of a film series.  Even a beloved 131 minutes like ‘Return Of The Jedi’ is the least of the first three Star Wars flicks, leading to today’s concluding query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) admits that ‘Day Of The Dead’ is maybe the best-constructed film experience of Romero’s original zombie movies, though the others are probably better, asking: What’s the best example of  REALLY good ‘Part Three’ movie?

Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. Daniel Langsdale on

    Definitely not a lot of them out there. For every Goldfinger, there are over a hundred Rambo III’s, and for every Christmas Vacation there are 500+ Porky’s Revenge’s.

    So for the best example, I’ll throw out two:

    Chasing Amy — Arguably the most main-stream, broad-base appealing of the Silent Bob movies, and what catapulted Ben Affleck into the public eye just before Good Will Hunting.

    Army of Darkness — The reason anyone remembers the Evil Dead movies with any meaningful level of fondness.

  2. By the mainstream culture response Iron Man 3 was a good third film. I’m not sure how high I would rate that one, but it is one of the few films I can think of in recent years.

    Logan is probably the only one I can think of that most comic fans would agree on. Compared of course to Origins and The Wolverine.
