and just because that’s what he does now look i’m gonna say i was absolutely excited for this film i watched the first trailer and i was hooked straight away absolutely hooked straight away i was like cool this looks like something right up my alleyway a guy with a hook killing people bam i haven’t watched the original just to say it i haven’t watched the original so i went in completely blind didn’t know what to expect or anything like that i heard good things about this as well i thought wow this could be a good horror movie i’ve just seen the nighthouse and i absolutely love that i think it’s the best horror movie i’ve seen you know a long time last year’s horror movies were kind of absolutely shite not gonna lie but i was like cool this one seems like it’s going to be right up my alley and it’s actually going to be one of those horror movies that’s going to get me absolutely excited and feel absolutely amazing after watching it i’m going to tell you right now i’m actually really disappointed really disappointed in candy man i didn’t enjoy it i didn’t enjoy it this movie just didn’t work for me at all and i think the biggest thing that didn’t work for me is i walked out of the theater after watching candyman and normally when i walk out of watching a movie i like to feel something so if i like walk out of a marvel film i’m expecting to feel energized like oh that was awesome saucy can’t wait to watch it again when i walk out of horror movies i think i walk out with my heart beating and i’m like oh my god that was insane right i mean my anxiety is through the roof like i’m shaking the thrill and that when i walked out of candyman i didn’t feel anything i just sort of walked down i was like well i guess that was all right like i just didn’t feel anything and i never felt anything throughout this movie and the big problem why i never felt anything is because i never got attached to the characters enough to care about anything i like the actors and actresses that are in this i absolutely do i love them and while i thought their performances were good i think the material just didn’t translate well and didn’t grab me and make me care for it like our lead character anthony i didn’t care for him i honestly did not care for him at all there was just nothing there that attached me to him to make me feel like oh sorry for him or like any emotion towards him i just kind of like sat there through and just kind of like hmm okay so that’s happened that happened cool he’s girlfriend i didn’t really care for her either they never really made me attached to her or anything like that either so when she goes on her little things like that i’m just kind of like okay i guess we’ll just we’re just we’re just going through it right now really so i just couldn’t connect with anyone so therefore i didn’t feel anything now when we get to the kills the first kill is brutal and i really enjoyed that first kill i thought oh my god here we go yes this is what i came to see this type of action kills this and that and then i don’t know what happened it’s as if they were like oh that was too violent that was just too uh yeah that’s that’s that’s too [ __ ] up let’s um let’s not do that again and then they kind of like you don’t really see the kills they sort of like you’re watching it and you see blood come down and stuff like that and then there’s like certain kills you actually don’t see the body or anything like that so i’m kind of like well that’s a big crap isn’t it like i wanna it’s a horror movie i wanna see the reaction of people when they see the body i wanna be like oh [ __ ] that’s [ __ ] up that’s [ __ ] up that that that is a true horror [ __ ] up but i never got that and then the kills on there i wanted to see the kills that’s why i come and watch these movies people get killed i couldn’t after the first kill i never really got saw i mean the second kill you see but it’s like so far away you you’re just like oh that would be way cooler to see up close but no i just didn’t get it i also thought there was pacing issues in this it felt a lot longer than it was and it was kind of like i was sitting there i was kind of like ah getting a bit on here can we uh move it up come on bit faster and it’s really really slow i thought the mystery element of it was wasn’t entertaining i just it didn’t make me really like invested in finding out the candyman or anything like that it just didn’t work the twist and that and i was just kind of like well i guess but i i don’t know i don’t get it i don’t really get it i never the twist didn’t really like grab me and go oh my god i could not believe that i cannot see that coming oh my god i was kind of like eh i guess that makes sense so it just never really grasped me like that i must say though i thought the music the score was great i thought that was great i visually it’s beautiful i love some of the shots especially if the city doing it from the uh the upside down view and i thought that was absolutely fantastic it looked really good with the whole clouds and everything like that i thought that was really good but they just they missed the mark for me i never felt thrilled or on the edge of my seats i never felt anything and that’s a big problem when i go into these horror movies is i don’t feel anything and when you walk out of the theater feeling almost empty on the inside after watching i was kind of like well what am why like what was the i don’t know it just it’s not one i’m probably gonna re-watch again because i just never felt anything i don’t know why i don’t know why it just it didn’t work for me at all it’s just one of those ones so for me unfortunately candyman’s just kind of like meh i mean i’m glad other people love it it clearly other people are loving it and that’s good that’s awesome i’m really happy for them for me though just didn’t work unfortunately so let me know in the comments below what are your thoughts on candyman do you love it do you hate it smash it down in the comments below smash that like button for me click subscribe and i’ll see you on the next video peace out
