High School Musical 3

It's getting closer! In a genius marketing movie Disney has actually teamed up with Jib Jab (who have strayed pretty far from their roots) for this gem: http://sendables.jibjab.com/category...hool_musical_3 ... this is gonna have a huge opener.

If this makes Dark Knight numbers (or actually surpasses Iron Man in B.O. numbers) I'll develop hopes that Children of Men was a prophetic film.

Without, you know, all the problems and darkness of real high school.

Fixed by a poor dad who has to watch the first two movies with his 7 year old daughter over and over again.

The first High School Musical is great if you watch it back-to-back with "Elephant".

Naturally I'd say Fast Times, but I think to be purely deranged you should watch it back to back with Heathers or Class of 1984.

I think the torture-porn genre has basicly been driven to the ground, HSM3 has singing and dancin' plain and simple how could it NOT be a hit.

Somehow, I don't see them targeting the same movie-going audience.

From what little I've seen of HSM, I'd certainly consider it a form of torture-porn.

Somehow I don't think 12 year old girls are big on the torture genre of horror films, but you never know.

A bigger factor that will make Saw 5 have a lower box office?

Saw 4.

But, "You won't believe how it ends"

That sold me right there! I mean, how could they possibly extend the story any further?

This.

I've unfortunately had the HSM3 trailer on a loop in the lobby of my theater for several weeks now. When did children's entertainment become so puerile? I was just watching Sleeping Beauty and it still holds up. Where are the timeless classics for today? Aside from Pixar, of course.

Also, am I the only one who thinks these movies have very obvious gay overtones? I'm not saying that as a slur, but I do know these movies have a large gay following and it's not just because they're musicals.

Why is this going to theaters? Because of the success of the first two?

Is the the first time a sequel to a DTV movie had a theatrical release?

A pretty positive from Entertainment Weekly:

http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20234985,00.html

I don't have much to say about the quality of the movies, but I just played Sharpay in a professional stage production of HSM1, and we had 100-300 kids waiting after every show for our autographs...and I'm certainly not Ashley Tisdale!

The kids really, really love this franchise and I'm glad it's getting a big fancy finale. Although it was a little upsetting that so many girls came up to me and said how much they wanted to be just like bratty, selfish, manipulative (but fashionable) Sharpay. So wrong.
