    Signs

    ★★★★½

    One of the most impressive and seminal sci-fi films so far of the 21st century, built with compassion, character depth, and thrilling suspense, a lurid soundtrack by James Newton Howard, and a powerful exploration of faith and life holding a greater purpose than ourselves.

    ★★★

    A passable, yet another unnecessary sequel to Wes Craven's 1996 horror classic that is certainly an improvement from the previous two that were bland and uninspired, though Scream 2022) is far from the game changer that it could have been. While certainly meta as you would expect, the film does an overall clever job of parodying online movie culture that has sadly been overtaken by lazy discourse and annoying fan service. Writers James Vanderbilt (Zodiac) and Guy Busick certainly bring…
