Candyman ★★★

I liked the part where they explain what the movie is about.

I feel really conflicted. There's a smugness to this movie and a complacency in just its existence that contradicts all of the things it is trying to say. It reads like someone just explaining what the first movie is about, like a review. So if you thought the first was too subtle then this might work for you.

First movie was about the horror of gentrification, this is gentrified horror.

But I had fun watching it, just not thinking about it.
