    But I'm a Cheerleader

    ★★★½

    This movie is full of people who are normally given bit parts and supporting roles, but a lot of them are given a bit more of a chance to stand out. On the opposite side, there were people I expected to have bigger parts who barely spoke (Julie Deply being a prime example).  A good sense of humour considering the subject matter.

  • Teen Wolf

    Teen Wolf

    ★★★½

    A pretty standard teen comedy despite the addition of a werewolf. Most of the classic 80s archetypes appear in one form or another, but they’re classic archetypes for a reason so it still works. Stiles is the obvious standout. He’s a bit annoying, but I like his energy.

  • Midsommar

    Midsommar

    ★★★★

    Short version: 
    It doesn’t suffer from the flaws that Hereditary did (i.e., the ending) but it didn’t grab me quite as hard. I still feel people who enjoy Hereditary with enjoy this and people who didn’t won’t. 

    Long version: This is probably my favourite film in a long time in terms of visuals. It’s full of colour and there is just a gorgeous look to the whole thing. The cast is fantastic and the characters are believable and well developed.…

    ★★★½

    I enjoyed it, but I literally can’t think of anything to say. Nobody particularly stood out. Nothing particularly irked me. I can’t even say it’s totally generic because I’ve seen generic films and this wasn’t one of them. What the hell is going on?
