...see what I did there? I'm so brilliant; sometimes I can't even deal with it.
"Scream 4" is opening April 15, 2011, and I, for one, could not be more excited. A quick warning: I would be excited if sock puppets acted out "Scream 4" on a Youtube video (which I'm sure exists, but refuse to look it up), but the fact that it is going to be a legit movie in theaters just makes me bleed glitter. I've been waiting 10 years for this shit, and I'd wait 10 more years for the next one...
Some people who I consider close (even best) friends have never seen these movies... and for that, I am ashamed and appalled. At them, of course, but also at myself. What kind of "friend" lets some of the people he cares most about go through life without seeing these amazing movies? Answer: A bad one.
Yes, they're "horror" movies, but more like Baby's First Horror Movie. While they may be a tad gore-y, they were made in the late 90's/early 2000's, so it's NOTHING compared to that sick "Saw" shit that's out today. While it may be "jump-y," it's nothing that a viewing of "Sex and the City" won't cure after. These movies are fun. And smart.
When I would tell people about "Mean Girls," I'd say "It does for High School comedies what 'Scream' did to horror films." And people would get it. "Ohhhh, it's smart AND fun!" Yes, you are correct.
But these bitches up in here that have gone 10+ years without watching 'Scream' would not get such references. Nor do they get references when I refer to "Jennifer's Body" as "'Scream' meets 'Mean Girls'" or when I refer to "Pretty Little Liars" as "'Scream' meets 'Gossip Girl.'"
Ladies, you know who you are. October is quickly approaching. Do yourself (and me) a favor - suck it up and watch all 3. You'll be glad you did. And I'll be glad you did when April 15 rolls around and I have someone to see the 4th one with (after I see it with you, Big Sexy...)
And the 4th installment is sure to be a crowd pleaser... with so many familiar faces, it's almost as if it's "He's Just Not Slicing Into You." But don't think you have to sit through the first three movies just to see faces you're used to from TV in the newest version. Oh, no, gurllll... there's plenty of familiar faces in the first 3 to keep your motor going. In fact, it's almost like all of my favorite shows got together and had a Halloween party. And now...since I'm obvi. on the list and you're with me, you're invited! Aren't I just the nicest??
Arguably the best character in the first movie.... make that the whole series..., Rose McGowan does a great job as Tatum, Sidney's bitchy best friend. Like Gale, she tells it as it is, but in a more high school bitch way as opposed to television reporter way. And let's face it: when it comes to high school bitches vs. professional ones, I'm always going to choose the high school one.
She was also on "Charmed." Her name started with a P, like everyone else on that show. I didn't really watch it... I just wanted a reason to include this fierce bitch in the post.
Film Class Guy #1
Normally, an unnamed character in a horror movie would mean this guy gets gutted faster than he can run. But in this case, it just meant Joshua Jackson was too busy stealing Joey from Dawson to film a real part for this movie and producers just wanted to flash his face in trailers so tween'ers could moan "Ohhhhh Pacey." But, hey - it works for me. Ohhhh Pacey.
