Midsommar [Blu-ray review]

Midsommar Blu

Midsommar still holds up for me. That’s a good thing, as this has been a year of me second-guessing new releases. Well, not as bad as the rest of the Film Reviewing Sphere of Interest. But, it’s enough that I’ve been recognizing something about my viewing habits. I’m getting old.

When word hit that the Director’s Cut was exclusively arriving on iTunes, most film fans got annoyed. I just thought, weird. But, I’m glad that it’s getting a release at least. Having only heard of the excised material through news drops, I can’t say that anything about that cut material makes for a different movie. There was a time when news of any cut material would make me salivate. Now, it just sounds like auteur wank.


Having previously discussed the film during the summer, I find no reason to tread there again. However, I am enjoying the film through a much calmer filter in the home theater arena. Dialogue isn’t missed due to the spectacular DTS-HD 5.1 master audio mix. But, what is up with this Italian style 2.00:1 framing? Was it always framed like this? I’m not complaining, but it’s irking me how visual cues slip past me anymore.

The Blu-ray comes with a Bear in a Cage promo and mini-documentary as the special features.


Midsommar hits Blu-ray on October 11th
