The most stunningly gorgeous and most unsettling film of 2019 is Ari Aster’s Midsommer. His follow up to Hereditary lives in the same world of grief as Hereditary did,and uses the occult to a chilling and surreal setting that makes to want to visit the festivities that only take place every 90 years. Midsommer won’t be for everyone, but it is everything it sets out to be. The film isn’t so much horror but a film about relationships. The movie is also pretty funny throughout and Stars Will Poulter in a small role. Although I have only seen it the one time so far, Midsommer May be my pick of the year so far.
Easily the most bizarre film of 2019! Steven Knight’s Serenity starring Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway. The movie has some insane and jarring scenes along with one of the most outta left field endings and second half’s you will see this year, I’m sure.
The movie has a pretty solid start and leans on noir tropes and has some great shots and camera work. The acting is top notch, as it should be with multiple academy award winners and nominees.
This is where the praise ends though. Serenity is not good, but entertaining none the less and totally worth you’re price of admission!
This movie is tough tot talk about without spoiling anything too massive.
While Mary Poppins Returns didn’t look like my cup of tea, or rather a spoonful of sugar, the film is a pure delight! The Rob Marshall directed sequel is rather enjoyable and a fantastic revisiting of cinematic icon!
Emily Blunt nails Poppins mannerisms and it feels like she hasn’t missed a beat since the last time she flew off screen. Her co-star, Lin Manuel Miranda who plays a gas lamp cleaner Jack delights as well with his patented song and dance.
If you enjoy classic Disney or are a fan of the original Mary Poppins, you should enjoy this redemption of the classic family film!
Just watched The Revenant it may be the most beautifully shot film I have ever watched. Leonardo kills it but Tom Hardy delivered an Oscar caliber performance and I hope he is recognized. Seriously if you love film you need to see this on the big screen to truly appreciate it. Easy 9/10 I truly enjoyed it.
We need to talk about Kevin is a disturbing look into a mother son relationship gone ary. The film stars Tilda Swintin,John c Riley, and Ezra Millir as Kevin. The story is mixed up straight from the beginning, showing flashbacks mixed into modern day. The mother,Tilda Swinton, seems a bit off and we find out why her and Kevin don’t play nice.
She is a young mother and does not know how to deal with a problem child like Kevin. Kevin screams constantly and makes his mother’s life a living hell. He breaks stuff, throws paint on her wals, and is just difficult to work with. John c Riley is very compliant with Kevin and let’s him do as he will. Everything starts to change when Kevin starts harming the family
The story takes an intense turn and the whole movie is building towards a climax that is quite a game changer for Kevin and his family.
we need to talk about Kevin is great. I recommend it to anyone wanting something different from their films. It is a nice change of pace that will haunt you. 7/10 We need to talk about Kevin is streaming now on Netflix.-Justin
