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.
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!
The Nice Guys by Shane Black, staring Ruan Goslingg and Russel Crowe is hilarious. It’s the best of all buddy cop movies. The nice guys has action, comedy, and drama all blended well. The retro feel was a nice touch and with all of Shane Black’s film the script is the strongest part of the film. Definitely check this one out ! 4/5
