‘Candyman’ Sours, ‘Spider-Man’ Takes Over the Web, and ‘Kursk’ Sinks

"Hello, Peter."

by Collin Willis

This week began with the long-anticipated release of the first Spider-Man: No Way Home teaser. Promising plenty of action, villains, and the Raimi universe along the way. Nick and I discuss our reactions to the trailer and spend a little time reflecting on Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man films and why they are still so beloved. This week also saw the release of Nia DaCosta’s Candyman. Nick and I break down what works, what doesn’t, and why we both walked away feeling a little underwhelmed. To wrap up this week’s new releases, Nick kindly takes us on a journey through He’s All That. 

For this week’s episode of the MovieBabble Club, an MB Club first! Thomas Vinterberg becomes the first director we’ve visited twice for an MBClub pick. This week I chose to visit with the director’s only English speaking film, Kursk. This based on a true-life event film leaves Nick and I both wondering what the point was supposed to be.

All this and more on this week’s episode of The MovieBabble Podcast. Listen below:
