    ★★½

    Tried watching these films years ago and, despite hearing they get better with the fifth, the first three were so painful to sit through that I stopped, but with F9 (which looks delightfully insane) coming out soon, I decided to give this franchise another go.

    Anyway, this is definitely much better than the first three + Hobbs & Shaw and does show potential improvement for the franchise in the future, but it’s still not quite there yet. While it is refreshing to…

As disturbing and horrifying the film can be, Midsommar is unironically by far the best comedy of the year, and a huge reason for that is because…
