    Cooper Raiff really needs to understand the limitations of his likability. For starters, you're either on board with this millennial energy or you're not. I, most decidedly, am not. He trots around this film exposing an ego that his career and talents certainly have yet to earn.

    While its heart is in the right place (and that goes a long way), I don't know where in the hell its brain is. Yes, SCREAM films have always relied on a certain amount of nonsensical and illogical actions, but this movie takes that to an entirely different (and frustrating) level. That said, the new cast and legacy cast make this one hell of a fun ride, while maybe not quite as 'modern' as it wants to be. The kills…
