This movie is sort of a double IPA, some will discover it disgusting and a few will take pleasure in it as a result of they’re used to the style. It’s actually distinctive in that all the movie takes place within the daylight, however the story and sequences are too odd for me.

Midsommar would possibly genuinely be my huge disappointment for 2019. I am not saying it is unhealthy. However coming into this on the again of not solely the loopy good Hereditary from final yr, but additionally the gushing reward from the net horror neighborhood, I assume my expectations have been just a little excessive. It does not make me really feel good to say it, however truthfully I am glad I did not see this within the cinema. Firstly as a result of I believe I’d’ve been just a little mad if I had forked out $25 to see this, based mostly on the expertise I ended up occurring, but additionally secondly, as a result of I do not a lot really feel like going blind within the theatre from the sheer white publicity that takes up 97% of Midsommar’s runtime.
