    ★★★★

    What a picture. Might be a little too high on this given that my expectations were very low, but my initial inclination is that not only is this easily the best Scream sequel but one of the best horror sequels ever. I was prepared to find whatever meta angle this ended up taking annoying/undercooked given that everything has become meta now, but the twist is instead unexpected and surprisingly incisive (or at least as incisive as a movie like this…

    The announcement of Wandavision as the MCU's first official TV show was an interesting prospect for multiple reasons, first and foremost being that TV would presumably allow Marvel to finally branch out and try something different, removed from the pressures having to produce a four-quadrant theatrical blockbuster. Though their placement within the MCU is now shaky at best, the Netflix Marvel shows at least achieved this; they may have been riddled with bloat but they…
