    Spider-Man: Far from Home

    ★★★

    More factory-tested-fun from the MCU with some new refreshing flavors tainted by an unpleasant finish due to the standard-issue excessive action climax. Glad I stayed for the plot-altering post-credit sequences. They were more satisfying than the actual ending.

    Midsommar

    ★★★½

    I always appreciate a film that rises to the challenge of feeling nasty and uncomfortable in gorgeous surroundings.

    ★★★½

    Has stuck with me many hours after seeing it. Like "Get Out," the twists and turns in store when watching the film are absurd but tap directly into the most paranoid part of your brain. I'm unsure if this movie's exposition does it any favors aside from more box-office potential (people prefer corny explanations over no explanations) and I could have done without Winston Duke's comic relief lines during some of the biggest scared shitless moments because he and the rest of the cast do otherwise phenomenal work in this wonderfully directed, freaky film.

    Pixar’s big unwanted hug turned out to be as warm and fuzzy as the others.
