Great acting, and a fine movie. The unfortunate truth is that the slow story is one that is better to read in a new paper article than watch on the big screen.
All style very little substance. Midsommar is a good looking high budget art house film. The director is clearly gifted but the movie starts to slip away with a muddled script, that seem lingers on long shots of symbolism in the background that are pieces of a puzzle we are suppose to picking out to conjure a more fleshed out story, but none of these symbols come to any big pay off or are just confusing with nothing given to the audience on why we are seeing them. The surface level of this movie is fine but it is the layers behind the movie that fall apart making it feel overcrowded with messages. I suppose it may be a movie meant to be watched twice with greater understanding on the second viewing but the first time impression left you with such little satisfaction the thought of watching Midsommar again brings me the same sad face on the cover.
Final words, the movie takes you on a ride with chances for great opportunity, yet unfortunately lets you get off disappointed.
Don't let your eyes trick your brain into thinking this remake will bring anything new to the story of Lion King. With a longer run time than the original you would think more additions to characters and structure would be made, instead it feels rushed as we follow all the beats it had to hit, making you tired and ready to leave by the end. Movie remakes like the Lion King hold back progression of cinema when the focus becomes less about new, original stories and more about nostalgia grabs for the sake of profit. When it comes to the singing the music is great but how it is paired with whats on screen is visually boring with most musical numbers not having much exciting movement to capture the tone of the songs the way was done in the past.
Overall you probably watched this movie as a baby and even if you remember it fondly it is still a movie for babies to enjoy.
Down hill after this
Last good Lindsay Lohan movie
