Review: 'Scream 4'

Yes, Beth. However, such is the nature of a film like this. If the movie had sought to reinvent itself, it would not be "Scream 4". There is only so much that can be done with self-aware characters, I agree. The point of the film, however, is that no matter how crazy and out there horror films get, there will always be something to be said for the classic slasher. Scream 4 compares itself to other, newer horror films because it seems to believe that these newer movies are pretending to be something they're not: "torture porn", and the like. Scream 4 does not pretend in any way at all. It sticks with a formula, a tightly packed and simple story, and some surprises and twists. It even goes out on a limb with an extended ending! The only thing wrong with this movie is that it's horror nerd characters are no Randy... That was this series' biggest mistake: killing Randy back in Scream 2. He still should have gotten the girl in the end. :-)

Review: 'Scream 4'

Seriously, Beth, horror fan or not, as a critic, you really need to exercise the concept of proofreading your work. Personally, I think that the content of your review misses the whole point of the movie. However, even if you were right on the mark, no one will take your writing seriously because it is full of errors. Please refrain from measuring apples by oranges' standards and focus on writing without completely misspelling and omitting words.
