Re: SCRE4M (Film 2011) Discussion/Grade *Spoilers!*

Ebert's review seems rather cynical. Ten years ago he liked what Scream was offering up, he rated the first three films highly. I don't see anything in his review that necessarily contradicts what he said about the others. Perhaps he's just rating it low because it's the fourth installment in the series. He never really rates any fourth installment that highly anyways.

Surely, it can't be any worse than the 3rd one. The first two really good, but, IMHO, the 3rd one lost it's way

Most of the reviews I've read say it was better than the third one.

At the very least, this is Kevin Williamson's story, with the third one Williamson had little to no involvement with the film. I don't expect it to be better than the first two, but I think it should be at least better than the third.

^ I think everyone expects it to be better than the horrid "Scream 3".

Re: SCRE4M (Film 2011) Discussion/Grade *Spoilers!*

I've just decided I'm going to the midnight showing tonight. Knowing me, if I don't my curiosity will eventual get me spoiled, and this is one of the few movies I want to know nothing about going into.

As it stands right now I don't even know the main plot outside of the fact that Sidny is in town promoting her book. Oh and Gale and Dewey are in it too

Midnight screenings aren't an option here. I'll try to see it this weekend.

I watched Scream 3 again just to familiarize myself with that film. First time I've seen it since opening night eleven long years ago.

It has all the trappings of a Scream film, Wes' direction is excellent, the film is paced well, and the music is well done. But it just doesn't work for me, none of the characters, apart from the ones returning from Scream 2, do anything at all for me. None of them are developed at all, no personality, they are just there to be killed off. The first two films may have been the same way, but at least you didn't feel like you were meeting a character just so they could die by the requirements of the plot.

^ Yep one of the problems with me is that you as an audience don't become attached to any of the new characters. That wasn't the case with the second film (and not just because of the actors who played them). I blame Ehren Kruger. I'm not a big fan of his.

I think I'm going to have a "Scream" marathon before I go see it Sunday evening.

@Timothy, yes as we've already discussed over the last couple pages of this thread, this is meant to be the starting point of a new trilogy.

Not only that, if you hadn't had two previous films to get to know Gail, Sidney, and Dewey I wouldn't have cared for them much either. As this film doesn't do much for them.

It's fun to see all three characters again, but Sidney is virtually absent from the first half of the film, and what the hell is up with Courtney Cox's awful hairdo!

That was due to Neve Campbell's contract, which stipulated that she could only be on the set for 20 days. She really wasn't terribly interested in making the movie. (Neither was Wes Craven, for that matter; the Weinsteins were holding him hostage over Music of the Heart -- they only agreed to finance it if he consented to Scream 3.)

I knew about the reason Campbell wasn't in the film but I didn't realize Wes didn't really want to do it. Explains why he considers it the worst of the first three.
