    This week the gang reviews Ari Aster's controversial new thriller "Midsommar " and tries to decide if it lives up to the legacy of "Hereditary". Plus, I could be wrong, but I think the term "pube pie" was mentioned at least once so you all have that to look forward to.

    I think part of the reason Pele wanted Dani to go was because she was at the midsummer of her life as they see it AND her birthday was on the first day of MidSommar.

    Guy isn't into his girlfriend anymore, because she is mentally unstable. (As evidenced by her perscription bottle) acts disconnected because he would rather she just boke up with him, so he does not have to actively add to her distress = Bad Guy

    I really don’t understand all the hate this movie is getting. Not only is it one of the most beautifully shot films I’ve seen but it’s also does a great job of depicting the anxiety and grief. I also that Florence’s acting was almost just as good as Toni’s. I still can’t believe Toni Collette didn’t get nominated for an Oscar. That was the moment I realized the Oscars is more worried about pushing an agenda then actually awarding the best actors working today.

    nudity is just tits and ass
    graphic nudity is full frontal dongs, bush, or simulated sex

    33:00 Yeah, he should have been dead already, but also lungs work by the expansion of the diaphragm which pulls the ribcage outward and sucks air into the lungs, so this guy, having his lungs outside of his body, should definitely not be breathing, as the mechanism for breathing was completely dismantled.

    3:07 this isn't a horror because it only has one jump scare? I am supposed to listen to 53 minutes of this drivel? LMAO!

    I feel like you shouldn't compare this to hereditary because the films are too different. The only things they have in common is it's about grief and Ari Aster directed them

    This is an inane review or discussion...they completely miss the point of it and react to the minor stuff...pretentious at best...

    A guy had blood on his dick after fucking someone who is suggested to be "just barely legal". That's probably what the graphic nudity was from.

    The movie made 31 million so far on a 9 million budget so it did okay.

    By the way, some great use of budget if it was 9 million.

    I disagree with a lot of their opinions about the movie, I loved it. Good reviews though.

    i think another critical theme of midsommar beyond 'anxiety' or mid-level emotional malaise is trauma, and the vulnerable isolation it can produce. moreover, it was a sharp (though reasonably ambiguous) criticism of modernity: keeping elderly alive as long as possible, the lack of symbolic cohesion in secular cultures, empty alienation spun as liberated individualism, etc.

    i enjoyed this movie quite a bit. i think the ending was conflicted though. the most obvious reading of dani's deep-frying her unlikable BF is as revenge fulfillment. but i think there was also the whole 'burning away attachments' component. the problem is the revenge is unsatisfying because BF was only so much of a dick (also drugged into infidelity). but because their relationship's tumult is so emphasized, the (more profound) 'burning off impurities' takes a back seat.

    kudos to aster for creating a movie where the 'baddies' are philosophically compelling despite their grotesque brutality. maybe the biggest error of Midsommar was allowing its hype to build as a 'thrilling follow-up to the horror flick of the decade'. seemed to me more a surrealistic and nuanced reflection on culture, loss, and relational decay freckled with jaunting imagery. but i'll take this brand of 'horror' any day over the spineless money-grabs that typically haunt the box office.
