I think the soundtrack, amazing performance by Florence Pugh and the absolutely lovely/bonkers ending elevate it for me. I'd like to see the director's cut, I saw an interview with Aster and he says it restores a long lake sequence he cut for time but missed in terms of character.Castlevania, OTOH, hasn't been too bad
I watched Midsommer yesterday. It was really well done - but, not entirely engaging as it was just sort of the Wicker Man 2.0. Actually, I take that back, it was almost the exact plot of the not very well known sequel to the original Wicker Man, the Wicker Tree. I thought it was a really well done film, but I can't help but compare it to Gus Van Sant's shot for shot remake of Hitchcock's Psycho - what was the point?
Has anyone seen the 3 hour director's cut? What does it add to the film?
I watched the first episode of Dracula and due to what I had heard I went in with low expectations and had more fun than I expected. It is an overly broad mess but delivers some entertaining gore shocks near the end that won me over, for that episode at least.
I agree that Halloween should have been left alone. Although I enjoyed the most recent sequel with the return of Curtis I find the others (the atypical III aside) risible. The original is such a carefully calibrated formalist masterpiece with a perfectly ambiguous ending.
