Black Widow: The Family Web

Black Widow

Scarlett’s Natasha is a complicated character trying to make up for all the bad things in her past. Florence as little sister Yelena builds off that as well. She has a great mixture of regret and vulnerability hidden under a tough shell.

Fear Street Part One: 1994

I don’t know much about the source material, but I applaud this production for having the heroines be LGBTQ+ and for the budding romance between Kate and Josh who are an unlikely couple in a Hollywood movie. Simon’s pop talk near the end to Josh reinforcing that he is worthy of Kate and not to take her advances as just the heat of the moment, is a good lesson for those who struggle with low self-esteem and added a bit of soul to the film. It also showed a hidden depth that we had not seen in Simon.
