Copshop maybe not exactly rewriting the rulebook, but he’s aware enough of his tone to (mostly) hit the mark of what fans would expect – and sometimes that’s more than enough.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (now in theaters)
Like Shang-Chi itself, the film grapples with two halves of its identity: the desire to be a complete stand-alone story with emotional reward, and the need to tie (both thematically and literally) to the past. and the future of the MCU. continuity. Unfortunately, this last necessity does the film a disservice.

Worth (available now on Netflix)
When Value ends, it won’t make you feel better for nothing. That way, it’s more accurate than other movies whose codas all have bad news to spell, despite the feeling of triumph you have left.
Candy It might not quite fit the 1992 classic, but this clever, spooky sequel is sure to please fans and scare a new generation of never saying their name five times in a mirror.

Sweet Girl (Netflix)
It all ends up in a reveal that almost saves the movie or, at the very least, makes you pay attention. In a better movie, that would lead to revisiting to see how it all fits together. Unfortunately when it comes to Nice girl, there is nothing here that you would want to review.

The suicide squad (cinemas)
Mixing up the big screen show of guardians of the galaxy with the bloody violence and dark humor of James Gunn’s horror work, The suicide squad is sure to end 2021 as the most entertaining blockbuster of the year. It’s Gunn dropping the leash to do whatever he wants creatively – and he’s definitely doing weird stuff.

For its many flaws, however, there is something undeniably fascinating about Old, and it all comes down to M Night Shyamalan’s willingness to swing so hard that he might miss it completely every time he walks behind a camera.

Space Jam: A New Legacy (Cinemas)
Space jam fans are probably best served by watching the first movie again and getting that nostalgic success. Space Jam: a new legacy may have more whimsical effects and fleeting moments of joy, but if you’ve spent 25 years waiting for it, it really wasn’t worth the wait.

The Water Man (Netflix)
Water man is not as heartbreaking as It’s us, which is a welcome break for those who know and love the show. Unlike other family dramas in which a parent is dying, there is no other evil that the young protagonist has to contend with.

Despite some frustrations, it is a testament to the strengths of the first film where you would have wanted to make the trip 1978 even without the cliffhanger like when it’s at its best, Street of Fear Part 1: 1994 is pretty darn fun.
