    Midsommar

    ★★★★½

    I was totally prepared to be bored during this because of knowing major plot points as it’d been so hyped up and praised. however... to use a phrase.... a wild ride from start to finish. It almost felt like it was really happening, you couldn’t predict what would happen next, or why. I think what interested me most was the parallel of peacefulness against the horror. at times this surprisingly felt really calming. should i be worried? about myself? already…

  • The King

    The King

    ★★★

    I did enjoy it, it was epic and rich and at times (perhaps unintentionally) hilarious, however it did lack the fundamental ‘point’ of the story, and I couldn’t quite find the empathy with the characters particularly King Hal. It dragged on for sure. But there were a lot of really well directed and produced and shot scenes. And I never thought I’d see Joel Edgerton and Robert Pattinson in those roles but here we are and they were gloriously entertaining.

  • The Lion King

    The Lion King

    ★★★★

    I loved it. 


    The animation was absolutely stunning and in some parts the story and everything was even more beautiful than the original. I don’t like comparing remakes to ‘the original’ so much but it’s very hard not to when they’re so much alike, that when anything is changed it’s quite noticeable. Timon and Puumba were even greater, and I got chills whenever James Earl Jones spoke again as Mufasa. This should 210% get every award for special effects. Probably…
