THE NORTHMAN 2022 Robert Eggers

2h 17m | Action | Adventure | Drama | Fantasy | History
Writers: Sjón, Robert Eggers
Cast: Alexander Skarsgård, Nicole Kidman, Ethan Hawke, Anya Taylor-Joy, Willem Dafoe


Pretty solid Hamlet inspired Viking mythology revenge flick. I guess for me personally Ragnar (Travis Fimmel), Floki, Bjorn Ironside, Lagertha, Rolo and them just raised the bar for all Viking related productions.
Good performances by; Kidman, Taylor-Joy and Skarsgård. Ethan Hawke was fine but risking overexposure, it's like I'm seeing him in everything lately.




PEAKY BLINDERS Final Season (6) 2022

Crime | Drama
Creator: Steven Knight

Enjoyed this so much more than expected. Probably because it actually goes full Sci-Fi as supposed to the worn out superhero stuff. Great performance by Owen Wilson!

1h 35m | Action | Comedy | Drama | Romance

A Yojimbo plot Western where all characters are either vague, weird or eccentric. Directed by academy award winning director John G. Avildsen. Amusing straight-to-dvd looking film that doesn't take itself so serious. Really liked the shooting locations. (The film is also known as Desert Heat and Coyote Moon)
