TRANSCRIPT – TOMMY EDISON ONLY
We waited 11 years for “Scream 4”. I hope *you* like it.
You know, I’ve no idea what happened in the last 20 minutes of this movie. There was a couple of times where the audience clapped, and I thought it was over, and then more things kept happening. I’m completely lost. Thanks, “Scream 4”.
This movie’s great. There are segments 4, 5 minutes long, where there is no one saying a word. It’s just sound effects, screaming, music. There are giant holes in this plot. How do you have all that time, and nobody says a word?
They’ve got everybody back – Neve Campbell stars, Wes Craven directs, David Arquette, written by Kevin Williamson… They did a nice job of making fun of themselves in this movie. It was kind of fun that way. A lot of references to old horror movies, which was great.
I thought the writing and dialogue was okay. It was a little bit thin. There wasn’t much character development. For me, it was difficult to follow everybody. But the sounds were incredible, it was nice and loud. Oh my god.
The girls in this movie, all they seem to do is complain and scream. That’s it. I hope they’re nice to look at.
Overall, I don’t really know what Scream 4 was about. The audience seemed to really enjoy it. But for me, I was completely lost. It was all visual. It was all sound effects and scary music, and a lot of screaming.
Alright, so something is happening here, somebody else’s perspective, back to this. Now, let’s try it without the picture. Not so much fun, right? You’re a little confused now, aren’t ya? Two hours of that! Two hours of that. One of the most difficult movies for me to follow.
It could have been foreign, and it might have been easier to follow.
So for “Scream 4”, I’m going to say, sighted people, I really think you’ll enjoy this movie. Blind people stay home.
I’m going to give this 2 out of 4 eyes open.

I’m Tommy Edison, the Blind Film Critic. Thanks for watching! Show-offs.
