    ★★★★

    I finished watching Hereditary last night at midnight, but just until now I’ve gathered all my thoughts about it. That’s the first plus for the film; how it lingers and unsettles even after it’s over.

    I have to say, it took a long time for me to gather the courage to watch this, because after watching the trailer and reading some reviews, the expactions about how terrifying it is supposed to be were overwhelming.

    And the film delivers on those…

    It’s time for Miles Morales to shine indeed!

    Loved everything about this! The Spider-gang, the visuals, the music, the story. It’s all there, wonderfully packed.

    This is a feast to the eyes, and a wonderful gift to fans of Spidey and superheroes altogether.

    Ever since I saw the first stills and teasers for it months ago, I knew this film was going to be something special, and I have been looking forward to it like crazy. Now it’s here, it’s truly amazing, and can’t wait to watch it again.

    ★★★★½

    A visual spectacle of overwhelming scale.

    Some of the things I love from Villeneuve’s work are present here: moments of masterfully handled tension and a slow, contemplative pace with enough room to appreciate the cinematography and get immersed in the dense, complicated world.

    Thanks to that “Part One” shown at the start, the rather inconclusive ending didn’t feel too bad, but as a stand-alone story it lacks depth.

    Still, it’s a total achievement of epic sci-fi world-building and stunning imagery and wonderfully depicted concepts.

    “children always tell the truth” yeah fuck that

    but seriously, this was a deeply uncomfortable, frustrating, and infuriating watch - which speaks of how well made it is

    a few times I was going to pull my hair out while watching the innocent man acting strangely indecisive about his own innocence- to the point that even I started suspecting him! this all speaks to the incredible performance by Mikkelsen as well as the others

    a very difficult story, very realistic- and therefore depressingly - depicted

    ★★★½

    This is the first film I’ve watched in the cinema since the lockdown ~5 months ago. Decided to go to a 11:30am screening hoping that few people would attend. In the end there were like 7 others in there. All the time I was wearing a mask.

    I’m glad I went. I had fun with the spectacle of the movie combined with the excitement of just being in the cinema again.

    But this is a mess of a film.

    It’s…

    After Hereditary I was so looking forward to Aster’s sophomore. I guess lots of us were.

    And of course the premise- a horror in the broad daylight of sunny summer- is very interesting on its own.

    But the end result is not as solid as I would have wanted.

    Overall, the film is visually striking, both in terms of its great cinematography as well as the crude and shocking imagery throughout.

    Most of the first half is really great, building…
