Whoa! This got a forum a week before its release?! Guess it will be next week's WMOTW no doubts whatsoever.  
 
To me, SCREAM was so great that it was a landmark, and SCREAM 2 was even better. But SCREAM 3 ended up becoming what the franchise spoofed. So they think a 4th installent 10 years later won't be pushing their luck?
 
I understand that the trilogy saved this genre and made it hip again, and now that the genre is worse than ever, this movie may save it again. But is that an excuse to make yet another trilogy? Because I hear that's what they're planning.

Most of the original cast's careers haven't been shining a lot lately.And new chararters will be played by Anthony Anderson,Adam Brody,Rory Colkin,Marley Shelton,Emma Roberts,Hayden Panettiere,Alison Brie,Shenae Grimes,Kristen Bell,Anna Paquin and Lucy Hale.I really don't know what to think of this.

Last time Wes Craven made a movie,critics said he should've remained away for a little longer...and that was last year!
 
Since THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is better than DAWSON'S CREEK so far,writer Kevin Williamson may be someone who gets better with time.Besides,everyone thinks his success is because of the dialogue he writes,but it's actually when he writes horror fiction,like TEACHING MRS. TINGLE.

Scream 4 (w)o matsuno ga muzukashii desu.

...because this will either be hit or miss in the reviews. I hope it'll miss because then it'll be worthy of RAZZIES.
 
Apparently, Scream 3 was released in February of 2000. It got mixed reviews, which is probably why it wasn't considered for the RAZZIES.
 
And you already have a forum for Scary Movie 4 (2006).

Yeah.SCARY MOVIE was SCREAM's working title,and that's the reason why the spoof was named that way. So it's weird it says SCARY MOVIE 4 here.

Soo desu ne... so the target audience was in training pants in February of 2000. Are you suggesting most boys born in the last quarter of 1996 of being the target audience? That would make them 14 today, and I know a few of those kids as distant underclassmen. Where I live, they look like they were born in 2002 as well!

If I ever paid to see Scream 4, there would only be more movies of a similar nature in the near future, and because I'm hoping for better movies one year or another, I won't buy a ticket.
 
By the way, I forgot what a rim shot is.

I would hope the target audience would be people who were TEENAGERS back in 2000, because I really hope Hollywood is not making horror movies to appeal to newborn babies (talk about de-sensitizing them from violence as soon as possible!). Question is, will those now 23-28 year olds feel nostalgic enough to see this un-demanded sequel? I don't think so!

Michaels, I even suspect that they may kill off the main cast from the previous movies, so that they can start all over with the new characters. If that's the case, it could be a subtle "reboot" of the franchise...

The Nutcracker In 3D got a forum and that played in 115 theaters. From what I've read, Atlas Shrugged is going to be in 298 theaters. Just saying. Also, to keep on target, Scream 4 has fallen to a 59, not very good, but not quite one of ours.

R.T. gave it 64%:"The franchise is showing its age,but the film is undeniably an improvement over its predecessor,with just enough meta humor and clever kills".

Roger Ebert gave it **/****:"The actors do what they can in a film that doesn't care about human insights.The characters are almost preternatural in their detachment;if you were embedded in events like these,wouldn't you be paralyzed with panic?".

Richard Roeper gave it a B+:"Bloody entertaining".

Just saw it. It was very silly but hell of a lot better than the previous Scream-movie.
It's weakness is that it has a lot of characters and little character develpment.

I want to suggest Emma Roberts for the Worst Supporting Actress-ballot.
*spoiler*
She is the killer. First of she stabs Sidney "to dead" without checking her pulse (which is plain dumb writing) and then you see 3 minutes of her cutting herself, stabbing herself and walking in to walls (so that she looks like the soul survivor) this looks extremely silly and is worth a Razzie-mention.
*end of spoiler*

Haha, "Rio" made twice the money than this movie did! Moral of the story: don't make 4th installments to movie series a decade after the last installment. Wes Craven's career continues to go down the toilet.
PS: As for Emma Roberts, I'm sure her father, Eric, is proud of her for starring in such schlock, much like her dear old dad often does!

I love it when the haters post here, because it proves how counterproductive they are. If WE are so pathetic, then why are you wasting minutes off your life to post on our forum about how pathetic we are? You would think if we were so pathetic, you would avoid our site at all costs, but I guess you're using the Miguel method of obsessing over the source of your hatred instead of ignoring it.
 
In the end, this is just about fanboys getting a little butt hurt because we're picking on the tiresome movies that they love(d) so much.

Yeah, because the story already had all of its plot tied up in the third movie and there was no need for them to make another installment. As I said, this is just Wes Craven and the original stars being in desperate need of a hit movie because they are in the twilight (no pun intended, Miguel) of their careers.

I want to add that for some reason I was looking for a tiny hint of acting talent coming from the Roberts girl. I didn't see anything, but I was probably focusing too much on her because I liked the aunt back in the days. Maybe next time.

I can remember watching the first Scream, being so excited about the ending. I enjoyed it. I can't even remember anything of the second one, and the third ones' story was weird.
Number four with all its self awareness turned into a comedy. Not pleased, Sidney.

Yeah, she is just riding the coat-tails of her last name. Who can blame her though? I normally like to wait until a young actor has proven him/herself one way or the other. But I don't see her going anywhere. Plus I get the vibe of "cheating" to get this role, since it was certainly not her "talent" that was convincing. Maybe they thought she would attract a younger crowd??  

Didn't really happen though. Fail.

I don't get this whole thing with girls like Roberts, who are in their mid to late teens, appearing on-screen in their underwear. It's really not all that sexy, considering they still have premature looking body types. It comes across as the filmmakers wanting pedophiles to come see the movie. Yeah, I know it's a cliche of the girls-coming-of-age movie to show their "maturing bodies", but come on, it's not about art, it's just a quick peep show.

Ugh. No. Premature body types make me feel like a pedophile watching that. I have two daughters.
But maybe that's just me, going for the curvy ladies. But Robert's face is average. Has nothing on aunt Julie's when she was young. The blond one in the movie is a little more interesting. But she is already on the peek of her fame.
Right now I wouldn't be able to tell you one single name of an underaged actress, that I think has the potential to become a household name. Whatever is out there, is seriously lacking talent.
However, with a little more practise hopefully some will brake out.

Edit: Just thought of Dakota Fanning.

Well, there's Dakota, her sister Elle, and then AnnaSophia Robb. But outside of them, I don't think many underage actresses have that bright a future.

Scream: 7/10 - It's a pretty enjoyable slasher with intelligent characters and fresh dialogue.
Scream 2: 6/10 - I have to admit that it's a good sequel but there were so many flaws that kept me from enjoying the film a lot more, like the fact that the killer knows where the characters will be. For example, when the killer attacked the two cops, that was complete BS. I also hate the fact that the killer kept popping out of nowhere, as if a ghost itself (must be why they call him Ghostface).
Scream 3: 6/10 - While not a good film, it was an enjoyable one. Seriously, there were some stupid things in here, especially the killer reveal. However, putting Courteney Cox and Parker Posey together was genius. Their scenes provide some of the series' biggest laughs.
Scream 4: 8/10 - Easily the best film in the franchise. I loved how they lampooned on remakes, reboots, and the recent wave of torture porn films. I also loved the fact that the film acknowledges its own pointlessness and how tedious the Scream series have become through the Stab series in the film. Come on. The opening scene was pretty genius. Only Kevin Williamson could have made that up. I also have to say the third act was pretty ingenious with a climax that is really fan-freakin'-tastic. Scream 4 proves to show that all sequels can't be bad and that there is still some life in this franchise.

I have a better thought, knowing how bad of a shape Hollywood is in due to the influx of remakes, reboots, and torture porn, how about instead of being a self-parody about all those scourages of modern day cinema, maybe they should NOT MAKE A 4TH INSTALLMENT TO A MOVIE THAT PEOPLE FORGOT ABOUT A DECADE AGO! No, this movie was s***, and they would be insane to waste money making a 5th movie, but hey, that's never stopped Hollywood before.

You don't honestly think this is a $hit movie, do you?

At least I don't think it's total sh(beep). I thought it was merely average from what I know about it. I don't agree with you that it's a very good movie, but I agree that it doesn't deserve any nominations. On the other hand, it was mostly my fault this forum was here. I drew attention to it back in February, thinking it would crash because it's a sequel to a movie from a decade ago, until the reviews turned out to be middling. Little as we need this sequel, it's simply not bad enough to be one of our prime targets.

Uh, YEAH! If I wanted a bad movie that self-parodies how Hollywood is obsessed with remakes and reboots these days while not giving us anything better on it's own merits, I would wait for Seltzerberg to do "Remake Movie".

All the Scary Movies are the same, so I don't like Scary Movies much...

I just saw it.

Does anyone here watches COMMUNITY?There's an episode where a character wants to make the ultimate meta movie,so he's constantly saying "we're inside a movie within a movie and we're making a movie" and stuff,and it helped me realize that being meta isn't that hard after all.The opening scene was a major headache.To quote SOUTH PARK(sorry GTA)about INCEPTION "Just because an idea is very complex doesn't mean it's cool".By the end of the opening scene,I thought I was watching a spoof of SCREAM because they focus more on being cleverly funny than scary,and that remains that way the rest of the movie.This is a horror movie.I'm glad it tries to be clever,but being scary and/or suspenseful it's the most important.All this movie has is the same cheap jump-scares that any bad horror movie you can mention(that wasn't mentioned in this movie).Also,I may be wrong,but here there are even more characters discussing horror movies,except they're more like statements from intelectual people.Kevin Williamson was talking through the characters,and all he really said was "I'm smarter than you,audience member".

The 2nd and 3rd movie tried to tie the events and the new killer to the backstory of the original movie.Here,they just talk about what we saw in the present of the 1st movie.No mentions of SIDNEY's mom or anything.Is that good or bad?That's up to you.

The performances are...meh.They're all equal(except for Neve who's so uninspired),so I wouldn't like that you just nominate Emma,only because she was in another movie.By the way,she's not really the lead here but she's very close,so if she does get nominated it should be up for Worst Actress and not Supp. Actress.

I give this 4/10.

Apparently, Scream 3 was released in February of 2000. It got mixed reviews, which is probably why it wasn't considered for the RAZZIES.
It got around 35%.That's negative.

*spoiler*
She is the killer. First of she stabs Sidney "to dead" without checking her pulse (which is plain dumb writing) and then you see 3 minutes of her cutting herself, stabbing herself and walking in to walls (so that she looks like the soul survivor) this looks extremely silly and is worth a Razzie-mention.
*end of spoiler*
What does that have to do with her acting?If she didn't check her pulse is because...well,she forgot.She's a psycho killer,and they always make mistakes.

I won't be voting for her just because she was in another movie...

I found her acting in this movie far bellow average.... and in that scene she was just all over the top... I'll be voting for her.... If she's on the ballot... and you can do nothing to stop that...

I disagree... You said it yourself "She's not really lead here"... The movie is clearly told from Neve Campbell's p.o.v. and she doesn't even nearly has as much screentime as Neve... So.. She is is deffinetly not a lead actress...

That's no excuse... If she's is planning the PERFECT CRIME (as she said), she should have made sure that her victim is actually DEAD... You can't defend that... It's just an enormous gaping plot hole in the movie... and Wes Craven or Kevin Williamson should have noticed it when it was written...

Right,but she's the lead in the other movie.So it would make more sense if she's nominated for one lead and one semi-lead performance.

Freddie Highmore is the lead in The Art of Getting By.... The story is clearly told from his P.O.V. .... She's (as far sa I know) just the romantic interest... She's playing the same character that she played in It's Kind of a Funny Story...As far as I could see from the promotion of TAOGB.... I however have to get back with you on that after I've seen the movie...

I am a huge fan of the first two and despite its visible flaws 3 is a guilty pleasure for me. However, even critics these days are liking 4 more than 3 and it just barely missed out on a fresh rating on RT.

The Scream series has always been funny. It's not just horror. It's a comedy/horror series that points out the conventions of other horror films. And I disagree, the opening scene was genius!

Well, I think it's a great thing. The sequels never really quite reached up the potential of the first. The whole mom plot got out of control since the third film.
