  • Movie Review: Scream

    May 1, 2023 by

    Well, I thought I’d give it a try since it was on Paramount+ and I shouldn’t have. This too was just like its predecessor and very much Scooby-Doo style. There are a lot of things I could go on about but I’ve already wasted too much time on this film. Here’s hoping Scream is done… Read more
