Scream 2022 was not a memorable addition to the franchise, nor was it a necessary one. I think the final movie was made in an attempt to redeem itself from the lackluster reception of Scream 4 in 2011 but Scream 4 was already a solid ending. Needless to say, I’m a big fan of the original trilogy but this one just wasn’t up to par.

Sure, there were also some attempts at drama but they didn’t seem to make as much impact because it was really unclear who the real villain of the piece was. And because nothing really surprising actually happens, it seemed a bit derivative copycat of previous sci fi works. The Silent Sea really had a lot of potential. Too bad it wasn’t able to deliver fully on it.

All in all, Spider-man: No Way Home had a great script, excellent fight scenes, and a neat set up for the MCU and the Spiderverse. It will make you feel sentimental about the web slinger’s on screen journey and leave you hopeful for the infinite possibilities that the franchise holds. Also, it hints at many set ups for Disney Plus+ streaming series.
