    ★★★★

    Look what they (Scream 3 producers) did to my boy (the first two thirds of Scream 3)!

    Do love Dev Patel. 

    So pretty evenly matched on both sides. 

    Overall, we’ve got an A24 movie that actually appears to have more on its mind than a e s t h e t i c s, but you’ve really got to do some digging to figure out what exactly is on…
