Candyman

Odd that a movie that seems to be saying something about the danger (or at least sliminess) of using real people’s real life trauma and tragedy for some kind of clout boost in your own creative work would essentially do just that? They’ve had like 30 years to work on the original’s flaws and instead they went for things-we-know-you-care-about-like-gentrification-and-police-brutality-but-safely-repackaged-without-any-sense-of-subtlety-or-nuance-or-genuine-human-emotion also lol about the character that was like “I did laundry in this flashback as a little boy so now I only do laundry all the time”
