Candyman (2021)

I feel like I have been waiting so long for this sequel to come out. Although, let me just say, Candyman (2021) is definitely worth the wait.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021)

If I’m being completely honest, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings was one of the Marvel films that I was least excited to see. I had accepted the fact that I was going to have to watch it, so that I don’t miss out on anything that connects the film to the larger picture, but that was about it. After viewing the film on … Continue reading Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021)

28. All About Eve (1950)

A seemingly timid but secretly ruthless ingénue insinuates herself into the lives of an aging Broadway star and her circle of theater friends. You know, I don’t think there will ever be a time where All About Eve will be irrelevant. In powerhouse performances from both Bette Davis (Margo) and Anne Baxter (Eve), All About Eve follows young Eve as she inserts herself into the life of … Continue reading 28. All About Eve (1950)
