Again, I apologise for the delay. Life happens and I don't have as easy access to time and resources needed to do this project. But, hey, look at the bright side! ...umm...
"Ms Prescott and I... have a very complicated past."
You can say that again, Cotton!
"It shouldn't have been Randy. It should've been me."
You know what? Sidney's probably right. All Randy did was sleep with that chick at the video store and lost his virginity. Now he's dead and it's all because Sidney and her mother (who's no Sharon Stone.) Still, I really like this bit and I think they did the right thing by not showing Sidney being told about Randy for the first time. That's pushing on a line that is just too real for the midway mark of a slasher movie.
Although this scene in Scream 2 is somewhat ruined by having seen Scream 3 and picturing Heather Matarazzo as Randy's sister Martha back home in Woodsboro crying into her hypercolour leggings and covering her bloodshot eyes with her yellow-tinted hippy glasses. Oh gawd, we are going to have SO MUCH FUN when we (finally - in three years time!) get to the Martha Meeks scene of Scream 3.
Oh hai Gale! Nice of you to show up here.
This bit here - this dialogue exchange between Gale and Cotton - is one of those little moments I keep mentioning. I love Gale's "What do you think you're doing? ... Don't do anything stupid, Cotton" line, exposing the almost maternal nature she has over her stories and the protective feelings she has for Cotton in particular. And Cotton's "you're not having character doubts now" is a golden bit of dialogue and Liev Shreiber's sly smirk makes it even better.
"We're gonna take you somewhere safe, Sid."
"Oh yeah, where's that?"
"I dunno, but I'll be there with you."
THAT'S BECAUSE YOU'RE THE KILLER, HALLIE!!!
Oh wait, no you're not. You were the killer and then some fuckwit leaked the script. I so wish Hallie had been the killer. It would've been awesome, plus her lame/logically flawed death scene (coming up soon, obviously) wouldn't exist. Or, would at least wouldn't look as lame in retrospect. Anyway. Moving on.
Oh bai Gale.
