What to Watch This Weekend: October 11, 2019

In Theaters: War
War has two charismatic stars, plenty of explosions, biceps, big action, and enough fun to keep entertained for its two and a half hour duration.  For more information, check out our review!

At Redbox: Midsommar
Ari Aster's slow burning, brightly-lit horror movie is a psychological masterpiece with plenty of tension and a wonderful sense of contrast due to horrific events happening in a beautiful, summer village.  It is not for everyone but if you have the patience for it, Midsommar is a unique and interesting horror film.

Streaming (Amazon): Hereditary
Keeping with the Ari Aster theme, Hereditary is a film that has a wonderfully disturbing build up with an unsatisfying ending.  However, the journey to get to that ending is well worth it and if you are trying to get into the Halloween mood this is a perfect disturbing horror film. 

Streaming (Amazon): Photograph
From the director of The Lunchbox--one of my favorite foreign films in recent memory--comes another unlikely romantic tale.  In it, a struggling street photographer convinces a shy stranger to pose as his fiancee during a family visit, which leads to more than either of the pair expected.
