    Candyman: Day of the Dead

    ½

    0/10 film.

    Undoubtedly the very worst of the franchise, Candyman: Day of the Dead is a laughably atrocious, horrifically cheap trilogy-capper where not even another solid as always turn from the great Tony Todd is worth it, as it wastes his considerable talents on a stinking dung heap of a slasher film that has zero understanding of what made the original so special.

    Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh

    ★★★

    Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh obviously doesn't compare to its predecessor, but director Bill Condon's sequel is a reasonably decent follow-up that offers yet another wonderful performance from Tony Todd, a strong visual style, and a surprisingly mostly well-executed expansion on the backstory behind its titular character.

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    ★½

    With its intense and exciting action sequences, excellent performances (with the exception of a laughable turn from Jesse Eisenberg), and dazzling visual spectacle being let down by an overstuffed and incoherent script that's filled to the brim with poorly written characters and needlessly convoluted plotting, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice tries to be another Batman reboot, a Man of Steel sequel, and a Justice League set-up all at once with results that are nothing short of depressing to watch.…

    Arrival

    ★★★★★

    Yet another terrific entry in director Denis Villeneuve's filmography, Arrival is one of the most intelligent, visually stunning, and thought-provoking science fiction films in recent memory, led by a career-best performance from Amy Adams and a pensive, poignant screenplay by Eric Heisserer.
