    Lethal Weapon 2 1989

    ★★★½ Watched 26 Apr, 2015 2

    - Marge Simpson

    There isn't much more to be said about this worthy sequel to the film that showed us that suicide is funny (to quote Homer again).

    Candyman 1992

    ★★★★ Watched 05 Apr, 2013 5

    "Week 1 of the Adapted April Challenge"

    Film 3 of the Top 50 Horror Project

    I was very excited that my first assignment was to be Candyman , a movie that I wanted to see for a long time. I had heard very much about it, but mostly that it was an important horror movie everyone interested in horror should see. So I knew nothing specific about it and just figured it would be an usual horror flick about an…
