Tiny Spoilers For Each Film

MIDSOMMAR - I rented this because I saw Florence Pugh in Fighting With My Family and fell in love. Did NOT fall in love with this film. The opening was really cool. She showed her chops in what could have been an extremely awful boring introduction. Then it switched to Sweden and it went down hill from there.

The only good part was the sex scene. I've never involuntarily laughed so hard in years.

If you haven't seen this. FF to the sex scene, everything before and after SUCKS.

Plot Spoilers below for Greta.

GRETA - I got a two for one special from Redbox. This was actually a better horror flick then Midsommar. But, it still came up short. The one thing that truly annoys me is sane folks not doing the most obvious thing during a crisis.

Moretz's character has Greta stalking her. She does everything she should, and to no avail. Finally Greta goes nuts in the restaurant Moretz waitresses at, and is arrested. Fine. All this is perfectly acceptable in the real world. THEN Moretz goes missing. In a normal world, go to the cops. They didn't in the movie. They went to a private Detective.

It turns out, going to the police was cut from the movie, and is in the deleted scenes special feature. It was a moronic scene. Instead of saying "my daughter has a stalker who was arrested, and she sent us each photos making us think she was away". It was a scene about Moretz's sanity. Completely unrealistic and deserved to be cut. But, a reasonable scene should have been there.

Both were a waste of time.

I was stunned by the part that everyone else was (dont want to give it away) , found it creepy as opposed to scary though.

You should watch more porn and less horror.

The Disaster Artist was a fun watch. Franco really gets into Wiseau. Seth Rogen as Sandy counters Tommy's weirdness quite well. It's also fun to notice how Franco manages to make you feel a bit sorry for Tommy during the premiere, in spite of his obvious... oddness.

On a side note: cameo for the Google-guy. That was funny.

Krampus: Origins

I finally got to see this prequel. Despite one big flaw at the beginning where they have World War I still happening in December of 1918, while the real war actually ended in November 1918, it's overall not bad for an independent prequel on a low budget. The drama, dialogue, costumes, scenery, and visuals are overall well done with what they had. There is also plenty of decent laughable humor in there as well. There is a lot of backstory, and Krampus does not appear until the final 20 minutes, but this is an origins film, where that can be expected at times. Krampus himself is overall creepy and cool looking with his fx looking cool for lower budget. It is not as upscale as the 2015 movie or "A Christmas Horror Story" with William Shatner, but as mentioned above, it is an independent prequel on a lower budget, so you can't set your expectations quite that high. I can recommend this to those who can appreciate a lower budget independent film that is well done for what they had, but not to those hoping to see anything big budget.

Knives out.

This movie...quite wordy...but very fun.

Feels like a 70's murder mystery. Sounds like one - the musical score was fucking excellent, really evoked what it wanted to.

Some likeable characters. Some detestable ones.
It kind of acts slightly counter to a lot of mystery movies, and because of this it totally works and doesn't feel samey or old-timey.

I usually hate Michael Shannon but kind of liked him in this.
Pretty much everyone did a good job with their characters.
Except maybe a kid who's character was a bit superfluous, Don Johnson just...playing himself yet again...that and I'm never going to REALLY love a performance by Toni Collete after seeing what she could do in USTara...but yeah, look it was all well played. No complaints.

I'd give this one an 8/10.
It's a fun film with great dialogue and music, and the majority of the cast plays quite well off each other.

THE RELIC (1997). This could be sub-titled "ALIEN in The Museum". While this isn't great, it's certainly not as bad as many of the reviews I've read on it. If nothing else, Stan Winston's effects work is badass. I think because my copy was so dark, I didn't like it as much as I thought I would.
Have been to the Chicago Field Museum a couple of times when I lived above the city (1976-79) and thought it really good, especially the T-Rex skeleton that greets You as You walk in and we only get glimpses of it in the film. **1/2
