Candyman

Candyman ★★★★★

I remember when I saw the original I couldn’t help but think of how special of a film it was, especially for its time. despite that, there were still flaws as products of that same time. however! this remake managed to resolve nearly every issue I had with the original. I expected it to be impressive simply because of how I respect and adore nearly every person involved in the making of it but didn’t expect it to be as great as it actually is. it exceed my expectations and I’m happy it did since most remakes (as of lately) did not resonate with me. the ending was the best possible ending I could’ve imagined for it and I’m glad this exists. Nia DaCosta and John Guleserian compliment each other so well, I hope they work together again soon.
