New ‘Scream’ movie provides plenty of jump-scares

“Do you like scary movies?” It is considered one of the top five iconic quotes in a scary movie, according to screenrant.com. The latest installment of the cult classic “Scream” hit theaters whether or not we were ready for it. Aside from the original cast making a comeback including Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox and David Arquette, some extra special characters from previous movies also make appearances — it’s like they rose from the dead. This film takes place 25 years after the original Woodsboro killings by a serial killer in a Ghostface mask, where every 10 years or so a…

‘Ozark’ Season 4 will blow your mind

For fans of the Netflix series “Ozark,” the nearly two-year wait between seasons 3 and 4 was excruciating.  Season 3 ended with cartel attorney and antagonist Helen Pierce, played by Janet Peerce, surprisingly shot in the head and killed by Navarro Cartel boss Omar Navarro, splattering blood and brain matter on the faces of the Byrdes.  The ending left fans foaming at the mouths as we waited for a Season 4 that seemed to never come.

And I get…

‘Resident Evil’ film is a waste of time

 At one hour and 47 minutes, “Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City,” is a freaking dumpster fire. The movie tries to be its own separate thing from the original games with Easter eggs to the games sprinkled here and there, like the healing spray from the first “Resident Evil” game, and the different keys with the spade, clover, heart, and diamond. But the characters and plot are all over the place, and the characters feel like cardboard cutouts of wannabe bad asses.  The main character, Leon Kennedy ( played by Avan Jogia ), is made to be a total loser…
