    Uuuhhhh this is actually really fucking awesome? Basically a stoner comedy set in space with underlying depression and existential pondering added to the mix... and it all works incredibly well. It's imaginative, zany, sometimes sad and most of all really goddamn funny. Quite a debut for John Carpenter, and frankly this is one of my favorites of his. Maybe the best ending shot in all of cinema.

    Leaps and bounds better than Scream 3. Pretty impressive that they could still make a worthwhile, clever and interesting fourth installment out of this franchise, but they did! Bringing back the Scream trademark of everyone being an obnoxious film nerd was the right call. Quite a note for Craven's filmography to end on as well.

    Really glad this turned out as great as it did! A much better note to leave things off on than season 8 ever was, and my god did Michael C. Hall slip right back into the role without missing a beat. Felt really nice to spend some more quality time with Dexter Morgan for a few months.

    ★★★★

    Despite suffering from a serious case of not starring Hugo Weaving, I really enjoyed my time watching a Matrix sequel... something that has never happened before! Loved the meta, self referential legacy sequel commentary that works on so many levels, and on top of that this is a genuinely clever and well done continuation of the series.
