My Ranking of ALL 5 SCREAM Movies (Spoiler Alert)!

 I was going to post this a week ago, but I decided to wait until Scream 5 was in theaters for 2 full weekends. I saw a ranking blog online, and didn't agree with the list, so I decided to do one of my own. 


5. Scream 3 - by far the worst movie in the series. I figured out who the killer was about halfway through and the story line itself was pretty weak.



4. Scream 5 - unfortunately, the newest addition to the series is also one of the worst. Again, I found out pretty early on who Ghostface was, so kinda ruined it after that. I also don't like that they killed one of the original characters.



3. Scream 4 - This one caught me by surprise. I thought it was surprisingly good for a reboot AND it went back to the root of the Scream movies. I mean, it followed 11 years after Scream 3 but was just as good as the first 2.


2. Scream - the movie that kicked off the series almost 26 years ago. I still love the fact that you never see the ending coming in the series - they keep you guessing until the very end. I love Matthew Lillard and Jamie Kennedy in this movie, and Neve Campbell is a total bad ass


1. Scream 2 - This is still my favorite movie in the series; the only thing I didn't like was that they killed off Randy. The reveal in the original movie was definitely memorable, but I like that they changed it up a little bit this time around. I still love Randy in this movie. I wish this movie hadn't been followed so closely by 3.

Movie Review: Scream (2022)

 



What can I say? I personally think that in 10 years they could've made a much better movie - especially for the big 25th anniversary. I would've stopped at Scream 4 (and Wes Craven). I figured out who the newest Ghostface was pretty early on, and it was kinda ruined after that. My generation grew up with this franchise, and I would rank this with Scream 3 (which had the same issue as far as Ghostface goes). I also thought Ghostface's reasoning was pretty weak this time around. One positive is that I do like the Sam character, and it has the usual humor that the franchise is known for. The new twist at the beginning is a nice touch too. Do I recommend it? Not really. Do I think fans of the franchise should watch it? Yes. Do I think it is a good movie by itself? Yes. My rating: 3 out of 5 stars

My 5 Fave Movie Musicals From The Past Decade (2022)

 ***I can only go by the ones I have seen***


Honorable Mention: Jem and the Holograms (2015) 

The movie isn't known to be a blockbuster, but I love the songs 

 5. The Greatest Showman (2017) 

 

Great story and great movie with a great cast 

 4. Annie (2014)

 

The original movie is a classic, but this movie was pretty good too 

 3. Aladdin (2019) 

 

Speaking of original movies being classics... I personally love this movie, and I love that they made it their own. I am glad they added a song for Naomi Scott, and she knocked it out of the park 

 2. Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)

 

This is honestly one of the best movies I've ever seen...enough said 

 1. Pitch Perfect (2012)

 

What can I say? It spawned 2 sequels and became a phenomenon. I like parts of each of the three movies, but feel the original is the best as a whole
