Cooper and Mulligan are doing some of their best work here, Cooper especially is proving himself to be a very talented director. It’s really just the material that feels played out. There’s truly great stand out moment that will be used in all the Oscar clips but overall left feeling a bit empty. Very cool to see this at the Egyptian Theatre though.

This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
*sigh* look you can call me one of those toxic fans this movie wanted to make fun of all you want, but forgive me for watching a movie where the main character has hallucinations of her misogynist, rapist, serial killer father giving her support and encouragement to “fight back”, and thinking that movie doesn’t quite get Scream.
Scream 4 brought the franchise back in a much more interesting, clever, funny, and scary way. This was just rough. I could probably say a lot more but I just feel drained.
No Wes, no Williamson, no charm.
