Scream 4 was a box office disappointment this weekend, and having seen it, I understand why. New decade, same old shit.

I'm not sure why Wes Craven decided to wait this long to do this movie. The time to release this movie was the year after Scream 3 and even then I think audience would've said "enough!".

I never really understood the appeal of the series to begin with but the franchise was long past it's experation date.

The first one, while simple, was pretty entertaining. Everything after that was a money grab.

It's a shame we can't get a decent horror movie these days.

I thought it was okay enough. There was lots of stabbing and lots of jokes about how meta the whole thing is, so it was pretty much exactly what you'd expect. Or at least what I'd expect, as someone who hasn't seen the earlier movies since they first came out. I went in with low expectations and they were met. Mostly I wanted popcorn.

Alison Brie is cute in anything. And she's good at cussing.

I was sad every second that Courteney Cox was on screen and not being stabbed. I feel the same way about Cougar Town.

Shit, I felt the same way about Family Ties and Friends.

I'm pretty in the same boat as Mr. James199 (except for the irrational Courteney Cox hate). After Scream 3, there was no way I was going to expect this movie to be as good as the first one. All I wanted was some fun deaths and clever dialogue, and I got that, so I was happy.

Like with Scream 2, I thought Scream 4 was going along decently until the ending. The reveal was ludicrous and really brought the rest of the film down. The acting was pretty bad, although the girl from Heroes was actually great in her role as was McCauley's brother Rory.

Probably important to note in the fine print for this... "NOTE: All features contained are presented on this SD Blu-ray in *480i"
