WANDAVISION (2021): Episodes 3 & 4 – The Things I Liked…

Following my disappointment with episodes one and two of Marvel’s WandaVision, I decided to wait for the release of episode four before diving back in to see how much more engaging it gets.

Even though episode three was not great, for me, until the last few minutes, I’m glad to report that the fourth episode is much better and more reflective of what I’d hoped for with one and two.

The cast is fantastic; from Teyonah Parris, to Paul Bettany, Katheryn Hahn, Kat Dennings and of course, Elizabeth Olsen; who emits pain through her eyes so very well.

Am I still mad that the first two episodes and most of the third felt like a waste of my time? Only a little; especially since, unlike myself, many readers of the comic books like them.

My hope now is that with the episodes yet to come, things can only get better.

CANDYMAN (2020): New Trailer From Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Tony Todd, Teyonah Parris…

Candyman (1992) was a horror hit about  a murderous soul with a hook for a hand. A dark soul that can be summoned simply by a person saying his name in the mirror five times.

Starring  Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Tony Todd, Teyonah Parris, plus co-written by Jordan Peele and directed by Nia DaCosta, we have a new Candyman story for 2020. This time the dark murderous soul returns to the now-gentrified Chicago neighbourhood where it all began…

I remember watching the original Candyman movie but I’d forgotten about the bees. I don’t believe the original movie gave me nightmares. However, I may have blocked out such memories.

This trailer looks good, DaCosta is a promising new director and Jordan Peele is involved as producer. I therefore can’t wait to see how this turns out.

Colman Domingo, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Rebecca Spence, Cassie Kramer, Brian King, Miriam Moss, Avery Moss, Nadia Simms and Hannah Love Jones also star.

Candyman Release Dates: August 27th, 2021 (US & UK)…
