Scream 4 (2011)
What a rebirth of Scream!!!
Now after reading the reviews on here and on other various websites about this film, I was getting a little skeptical about going to go see this movie. Adding that the box office numbers aren't looking too good either really had me worried. I honestly thought that I wouldn't enjoy it. Well guess what.......I was wrong. I am a HUGE fan of the original Scream. Just the simple concept of the movie is pure genius. So when I heard that Wes and the original crew were back to make this film, I knew I had to see it. I even remember Wes Craven saying that he would not direct this film unless the script was as good as the original. So this REALLY had me pumped up to see it. I can honestly say that this is the most entertaining movie I've seen since Black Swan.
PROS: 1. The plot is very well thought-out and executed.
2. The murders are more gruesome than all of the other screams.
3. Some parts of this were really funny.
4. The intro to this Scream movie is right up there with the original Scream in 1996. It is that good folks. And while others are saying the ending is too long, I beg to differ. Scream is about finding out who the killer is and that's just what this ending is about. Yes there are A lot of twist and turns on who the killer is but that is what makes this movie so freaking great.
5. There are A lot of stars in this one and most of them deliver some outstanding performances. Emma Roberts, Rory Culkin, Hayden Panettiere, Anthony Anderson, Alison Brie, and the original 3 are the standouts in this movie with AMAZING performances especially from the first two names.
CONS: 1. This is a FAST paced movie meaning the scenes are going by so fast that sometimes you get lost. Being a sequel and having to introduce new characters AND re-introduce the old characters means there are a lot of scenes that need to be in the movie for it to make sense. So I understand, just which some scenes were added to slow the pace down at times.
2. At times the dialogue is too dramatic and not *real life* talk.
3. The soundtrack is not as good as the previous screams lol
4. Too many sub-plots involving the original 3 characters. I would have loved to see the new kids have a bigger storyline than being overshadowed by the big 3.
5. No sex scene.
Overall, this is a fantastic movie once again being overshadowed by a cartoon, just like the original. For true movie fans, this is one hell of a movie and Wes Craven, I cannot wait for Scream 5! GO SEE THIS MOVIE!
