    Official reviews coming out now...all generally really good...definitely going to go see this weekend!

    Completely and utterly ridiculous, and the ending is a few minutes too long, but very very enjoyable.

    I am kinda disappointed that the awesome way they incorporated the VI into the title in the trailers didnt carry over to the full film, which kept things more traditional.

    Saying that I enjoyed myself for a fairly large chunk of the film, there was a point it lost me near the end and yeah it has to do with the reveal which is spoilers so I kinda checked out for the last bit of the film, which is a shame, but of the two films I watched today it was the more enjoyable one overall.

    I guess it's my own fault for banking on the trailer's selling this as a 'different kind of ghostface' as something that was genuine.

    I enjoyed this way more than I thought I would. Far better than the previous outing and as someone said already, completely ridiculous though. They'll probably go again and that's fine by me

    From what I read, 7 is happening and they are starting to film later this year.

    It’s on track to be the biggest opening of the franchise in the US with 40+ million.

    I was a bit disappointed...some good parts and lots of kills nodding to other horror movies....I don't think it's the best since the original by any means.

    But the killers are pretty much always new characters...kind of obvious Dermot Mulroney was involved...but he managed to fake/stage his own daughters death (but she wasn't dead...and that wasn't her body).

    Plus how long can people really live after being stabbed, I get it, it's a film but Mason Goodings character was stabbed by two people about 7 times, seriously. I thought they might have the guts to kill off Gail but naw she wants to be back for 7 I guess.

    Honestly I was hoping in this one that the reveal was going to be that there wasn't a set of killers with specific motives but more one manipulator controlling multiple followers. Essentially splitting the 'voice' from the person in the room. I genuinely thought they were going this route for most of the film right up until the Gale weathers attack. That they'd pull the rug by genuinely having Gale or someone shoot the attacker at the end of the scene and reveal its just some random person never seen and then the phone rings and it's the voice still taunting them and then a large group of killers arrive and kill her off. Would have completely given the subway scene a whole new dynamic and taken the ending in a much more fun route.

    Because if anything the newer Scream films have firmly established is that in the scream universe the Stab movies have a huge fandom bigger then Star Wars that has no shortage obsessive psychopaths to be manipulated into being killers. Now they need to cash in on that setup and just go nuts with the notion that anyone could be the killer now.

    I saw it last week. Thought it was enjoyable but I think enjoyed Scream 5 a bit more. I was surprised by the amount of younger people at the movie.

    Who gives a f*ck about movies

    I thought it was good craic with some good set pieces. The worst part being the final act

  • Moderators, Business & Finance Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 23,902 Mod ✭✭✭✭Loughc

    Completely agree, I loved it right up to the final act. I won’t spoil it but I’m really bored of the trope where as soon as the killers are revealed they become completely and utterly manic.

    Scream 6 – 7.5/10

    More of the same but in a different setting… the city. 

    The lessons that the abominable ‘Jason Takes Manhattan’ taught us have been learnt. All they had to do was utilise the new surroundings in interesting ways and they nailed it. The ladder and subway sequences being the clear highlights. 

    Again, the filmmakers seem to be overly preoccupied with concealing the identity of the killers to the detriment of the plot. The various family tree shenanigans are now incredibly convoluted and anyone who is new to the franchise is going to be left baffled trying to keep up with it all. 

    I have found the formula to figuring out who the killer(s) is/are… Just imagine which one of the actors would be best suited to hamming it up in the final act. Sadly, this is one of the worst final acts of the franchise. The hammy acting just doesn’t work. Matthew Lillard perfected it in the first film and no one since has come close. Probably why they have sown the seed to bring him back. 

    If you’re willing to overlook an array of inconsequential stab wounds, obvious red herrings and an absurd ‘legacy’ character reveal (who the f*** is Kirby?) you’ll probably have a lot of fun with this. It didn’t at all feel like a 2 hour film.

    I thought I’d enjoy this more than I did. It was ok, and was entertaining. But the wheels really came off in the end. I heard good things about it, so presumed there was going to be something original in to. But it was the exact same formula as the other Scream movies. I don’t know where it goes from here. Gail Weathers and Sidney to join up as a Ghostface? One of the previous bad guys to reappear miraculously as the villain? I don’t know. I’m sure I would watch another one, but I wouldn’t be going in with much expectation.

    I don’t mind a bit of crazy stuff in movies – after all that is part of the draw of a movie; to escape realism. But one thing that I couldn’t get away from in Scream 6 is that Ghostface “killed” one of the friends, supposedly stabbed her whilst her friends were around and then escaped. But yet this stabbed girl was actually one of the killers at the end. What the hell happened between when she was stabbed and when she was revealed. When Ghostface left the apartment, did nobody check to see if she was ok, check her wound, call an ambulance (or priest). Bring her to hospital? Have a funeral for her – after all, she had just died. It seems that we are supposed to suck up that she was stabbed, everyone left the building, she got up and walked away, and nobody thought about her after that. Anyway, that was a little too much for me to digest.

    It's revealed that Detective Bailey (Quinn's father) killed a female student and they stage her body to pretend that Quinn was killed by Ghostface. Quinn goes into hiding after the attack. Bailey identifies her body and - as a grieving father and cop - "gets away" with it as he puts it. It doesn't hold up to any scrutiny to be fair.

    It also doesn't make any sense that no-one bothered to do research on Richie's family - not even Gale, who wrote a book on what happened in 5cream and should have recognized Richie's father and his siblings.

    Not to mention too many characters surviving stabbings that would have been fatal in previous Scream movies.

    Ok I retract my moaning. I must have just zoned out completely.
