Over the past 20 years, the direction of the Hollywood movie landscape has changed drastically, with different views on if it has changed for the better or the worse. There have been many different changes but one thing for certain is that the budget for most movies seems to just keep getting higher and higher, more specifically the budget for big blockbusters. But why is this? Is it due to inflation? Is the economy just not as good as it used to be? While those are definitely a factor they are not the main culprit so let's take an in-depth look into the inner workings of what makes up the budget of a movie.
Avengers: Endgame is the biggest movie ever made, and, understandably, it might have the most easter eggs in a single movie. However, arguably the best easter egg from the film may have just been found four months after the film's release.
So the latest Ari Aster movie Midsommar has hit the theatres and has been getting raving reviews from all the biggest movie-orientated websites. IMDB gives it a 7.7/10, Rotten Tomatoes gives it a 81% and Metacritic gives it 73%. With scores like these, you would think that it's a really good movie, but for some reason, when I left the cinema, I couldn't help but think that this is one of the worst movies I have ever watched.
Let me just start off by saying that the Spider-Man PS4 exclusive game made by Insomniac in 2018 is one of my favourite games of all time and probably game of the year for me personally. I found its storytelling and gameplay mechanics to be perfectly balanced (as all things should be) and the game was just flat out fun.
Let me just start off saying that I liked Us as a whole and I thought it was enjoyable however, when I left the cinema, I left slightly disappointed. After watching Get Out, and watching the trailer for Us, I can certainly say my expectations for this movie were very high and maybe that plays a factor in me being disappointed with this film, but some things didn't quite make sense.
