Scream 2

Scream 2

Not quite as tight or sharp as the original, but this one still rocks because the stuff with the movie within the movie adapting the events of the previous film and the whole thing with the recorded footage that they’re looking back on, it’s all just so voyeuristic in the most fun way possible. This movie like the first is still very much concerned with its own existence as a slasher film but this time also as sequel and how it must build on and subvert all the things that happened in the previous movies. It’s all very clever and silly. The jokes about race and gender are fun and its just really commendable how they’re able to talk about movies without the movie seeming so smarmy and highly of itself for doing such.
