Candyman. Say his name five times in front of a mirror and he’ll show up, bees buzzing, hook-hand raised, whispery voice ready to give you some ASMR vibes right before you die. Based (loosely) on a short story by Clive Barker, the 1995 horror film Candyman is an all-time-classic – an operatic, gory, highly unnerving exploration of urban legends and race. The film spawned a few not-so-great sequels, and this year will see the release of a new Candyman directed by Nia DaCosta and co-written by Jordan Peele.

Society is constantly evolving, and thus, so is our entertainment.

I was a little bit late to the Smiths party, without knowledge of what alternative music was until a handful of years later when a small AM radio station outside of Vancouver began broadcasting at the end of the 80s. By then the band had broken up and their legacy was in its infancy.    I don't know how I would have reacted to the breakup of The Smiths but I don't think I would have gone as far as to take over a radio station by gunpoint and demand they play nothing but Smiths tracks.

And if superheroe movies are now the mainstream (as it seems Disney would have it), it's nice to have one that is is makign fun of the subgenre.

It was created by Belgian visual effects artist Christopher Ume, who used AI-enhanced software to superimpose Cruise’s face over that of Tom Cruise impersonator, Miles Fisher. For more amazing Cruise TikTok… Read More...
