Scream 4 Reviews
Not as good as the first, but it's better than the 3rd one
However, the downside of its many genres though, is that some of its viewers will, understandably, not perceive how or when "Scream 4" is trying to incorporate one of its many genres into itself. So, this can inevitably cause any ignorant viewer to somewhat misunderstand the film, and because of that, "Scream 4" would be called a "perfect film" due to the fact that it has so many genres, hence it has many ways to be positively interpreted.
In all, "Scream 4" is original, entertaining, well directed, mostly well written, mostly well acted, and is solely based upon a bold provocative about how social media and fame can greatly affect people. But, the film does suffer from a lack of coherency, some shoddy character dialogue, and one or two underwhelming performances.
If you wondering why I'm reviewing all the Scream movies. It's because I got all the scream movies on blu ray, at a Miami Pawn shop for a dollar each. So I decided to rewatch them for the first time in a while.
In the beginning, one call stated it all. Now a new generation will meet a ghost from the past. Not Matthew Mcconaughey in Ghost of Girlfriends Past. I'm talking about that old school ghost, ghostface killah (not the one from the Wu-Tang Clan), the return of Ghostface in Scream 4. Scream is back for a new decade, new rules, a new game, a new group of people to kill.
I believe Scream 4, is the second best Scream movie in the franchise. Now many people, including myself, believe that once we got to Scream 3, we were screaming, and not in a good way. This film recognizes more than just horror eliminates. It recognizes how a new generation acts, new rules, how entertainment has changed due to technology, what people are willing to do in order to achieve fame, sequels, reboots, references, etc.
Kevin Williamson is back as the screenwriter, and I'm glad he came back. He brought what Scream 3 lacked. He brought originality, and a new direction. Even though we've seen the same template before. The film has the ability to stay one step ahead of the audience, and stay ahead of what you think is going to happen.
So these are my final Bitchin' Buddha thoughts on Scream 4. Scream 4 doesn't pack a punch like the first film. But, it was fun, and it was like going down memory lane. I'm glad they didn't end the series with the third film. I belive Scream 4 earns a...
3.5 out of 5.
Thank you for reading, and viewing, and i hope you have an amazing day as always. :)
