    Midsommar

    ★★★★★

    People that bloviate about director’s cuts are obnoxious but I watched the director’s cut of Midsommar for the second time today and think some words are in order

    The director’s cut gets an additional 24 minutes to breathe with a meditative holding of shots that leads to a noticeably slower pace and what I perceived as a more naturalistic unfolding of the story

    The extra runtime also allows for some additional details/context in scenes and just one additional full scene…

    Dr. Giggles

    In honor of Mother’s Day I decided to watch my Mom’s favorite movie, Dr. Giggles.

    15 minutes in my sister calls and says our Mom’s favorite movie is not Dr. Giggles, it’s While You Were Sleeping.

    Well, I already started Dr. Giggles and I don’t even have access to While You Were Sleeping anyways and she says, “Well you can access it through my Amazon account” and I said “Oh that’s great, thanks a lot sis!” but I’m not really gonna watch While You Were Sleeping, is she fucking crazy? 

    No, I’m watching Dr. Giggles - in honor of Mom

    The Last Duel

    ★★★★★

    Yes yes yes, a masterpiece from Ridley Scott who is not shooting blanks even at his advanced age

  • Thunder Road

    Thunder Road

    ★★★

    The film seems oblivious when underlining a serious issue: that a dumb cop with a gun is usually only considered a problem when they’re a danger to other cops

    I’m just generally confused by Thunder Road but I thought Jim Cummings’ performance was interesting and hopefully there is some potential there in the future
