    Beyond Skyline

    Beyond Skyline crash lands a gargantuan alien spacecraft in the rural landscape of Laos, acting as a substantially improved continuation over its predecessor that benefits from Uwais' action-heavy inclusion, but O'Donnell's chaotic showcase for sci-fi extravagance resulted in the ignored characters rapidly blending in with less-than-stellar visual effects.

    ★★★★

    Midsommar brightly dances through fields of tulips to create an unsettling depiction of emasculation. "That was a waste of time" muttered the viewers behind me. "What on earth is going on?" laughed the friends in front of me. "That was hilarious!" chuckled the imprudent heterosexual lads as I was walking out. Rather infuriatingly, as with most cases of contemporary filmmaking, I yearned to instantly throw a rebuttal at their faces. "What did you expect?".

    Sure, A24 were excessively marketing this…
