    Midsommar

    Well, I didn’t love the longer version of this as much as I’d hoped to. I was super sleepy & made the very poor choice to start it post-7:30 on a Sunday night. My eyes were tiny slits at that point, so I won’t complain that it didn’t look as good in 4K as I’d hoped it would...my eyes were mostly closed. 

    Obviously I’m gonna have to watch it again, but I kind of had trouble spotting the additional 30 minutes of footage...which is weird? At least I didn’t drop $70 on this version of the film! Oh wait, I’m being told I did?

    The Mummy

    ★★½

    It didn’t start off too bad & the first 40 minutes are fairly good & then everything gets so loud & so cgi’d to death that I just stopped giving a shit what happened. Mainly I just didn’t want this much action & this many fights in a Mummy movie. The plane crash & the underwater scene were cool, but all the other action beats were relentlessly average. A rare misstep for Cruise that nevertheless isn’t without its moments. Universal must hate money to have thought this should be the inaugural vehicle for the launch of their Dark Universe.

    ★★★★

    If your film doesn’t have multiple trident fights, sharks shooting lasers & an octopus playing drums-GET OUT! The most fun I’ve had since...well, I let you know when I remember having this much fun. An absolute visual feast & unquestionably one of the best superhero movies I’ve ever seen. I truly pity those that don’t see this on the biggest screen possible. 

    Mer-MAN!

    Only the Lonely

    ★★★

    Nothing special overall, but the John Candy magic is in full effect. How can he have been gone since 1994? How has the world kept turning?
