I have conflicted feelings on Scream 2. While I really like the way they played with the villains’ motivations being responses to the common reasons people gave for violent behavior around the time the movie was released, the villains themselves didn’t quite come together for me, and they felt more like ways to make the jokes and have plot twists than actual characters. It’s a shame because overall I enjoyed the sequel, but as some characters joke it doesn’t quite measure up to the fantastic original.
