I loved the first one when I was a kid. I expected a little preachy sjw messaging in this one, just hoped it wouldn’t be too much. It was the entirety of the movie. Hyper masculinity is the bad guy. The bully gets a spelled into being a better person by suddenly parroting every woke talking point. “He even referred to himself as ‘CIS’ today, OMG!” Uhg
I was disappointed to have to wait until the 28th to watch but it was worth the wait. I didn't expect much based on the trailer but was pleasantly surprised. I want to personally thank the creators of this movie. As a pagan and a woman I felt relieved that there was finally some accurate representation of the moral/ethical approach that most witches choose to practice. Things I loved the most: The accurate representation of menstruation and the positive communal support surrounding it, The transformation of a male bully into a close ally and friend, Trans and bisexual representation of main characters, The self policing of their own behavior and sacrificing their personal power so that they didn't hurt themselves or anyone else, Female allyship off the charts, Fantastic mother-daughter relationship, The girls looked and acted like real teen girls, Excellent soundtrack. Only con: too short.
An amazing let down. It was barely in any way a sequel to the craft, except for the small tie in to Nancy which felt rushed and just added for lip service to the fans. The universe and the magic all seemed to operate too differently for them to really be tied to each other. The story line also felt rushed and half baked, there was some real heart in moments but it just didn't go anywhere. It lacked a lot of the realism nothing teenage life and witchcraft that the original offered as well. It very much mocked the practice of witchcraft making it seem like leveling up in a video game to get new sets of gifts that seemed like exaggerated versions of the Charmed powers. My advice skip this one unless you get to see it for free, it's a waste of your money otherwise.
Okay, listen. I'm all about some girl power, but what the heck. This wasn't even trying to be a craft sequel. Most people know that the attraction to witchcraft and/or spirituality for many people these days is the personal empowerment aspect. For that reason, I can see the tie in, but that's ALL THIS MOVIE WAS. Woman vs man. Woman overcomes man LITERALLY. There wasn't even much of a villain build which was disappointing, it was almost like he was inherently bad just because he was a man and they just called him a warlock at the end to make it sound like it fit. It was just trashy.
I love how much study was put into this film. This drew upon our legacy as women and LBGTQ. It touched upon us being shamed for blood flow during biblical days, being burned during the Puritan era, being slut shamed during the current era, and how homosexuals (Timothy) were killed to restore patriarchal power. It pointed out how we as women are getting our power back from patriarchal control. "Our Mother" was deleted from history...but not no more!!! Love. Love. Love this film. I watched it on the "lifelike" TV and Android phone. Much better when it's not lifelike if that makes any sense.
Pretty good movie not as good as the original but a lot of fun. I liked the fact I didn’t feel like I was watching a carbon copy of the original and it felt like it did it’s own thing. I wish the movie was maybe 30 minutes longer though.
