Scream (2022)

Anybody planning on seeing this? The original is a classic, with diminishing returns for the sequels. Scream 1 - classic, Scream 2 - Fun, but not great, Scream 3 - happened, Scream 4 - almost completely forgettable. 

 

Points against this one:

1. Calling it Scream when there's already a Scream and this is supposed to be a sequel and I just hate this trend of naming movies like they're original when they aren't

2. No Wes Craven

I'm torn between seeing it in the theater and just waiting for streaming.

Three sucked. I liked four though.

I'll see this eventually. Probably not in theater though.

Honestly, I think the biggest weakness with four is that it was still all about the original three. It would’ve worked better if it had been more about passing the baton, as was advertised. It wasn’t bad, but it was also just not super memorable. I don’t really remember much about it, and I’ve seen it 2-3 times.

It wasn't bad! This one was more of a passing of the torch as mentioned in this thread, the original three characters were barely in it. It also featured a character from the last one but again, not that much. Not to spoil anything but the killers felt too much like the ones from the fourth one this time and weren't that memorable.

Don’t think so.

I saw it. If it had just been clever it would have been great, but instead it spends its time explaining to us how it’s clever.

Couple moments that were peak SCREAM awesome, but also some of the stupidest beats ever.

It was a pale imitation of the original, but still probably the third best of the series, behind 1 and 2.

1. Scream (1996)

2. Scream: The TV Series (Season 1)

3. Scream (2022)

4. Scream 2 (1997)

5. Scream: The TV Series (Season 2)

6. Scream 4 (2011)

7. Scream 3 (2000)

8. Scream: The TV Series (Season 3)

Don't even rank season 3! t was so bad I only watched the first episode. Replace it with Scream Queens, a better show! But it would be higher on the list, then.

I like that they did some new things, and that it wasn’t all upper middle class whites. But it was bad.
