The Northman

The Northman ★★★★

I honestly haven’t seen a movie I enjoyed so much in this genre since probably Gladiator. The writing has a lot of the same tropes and cheese inherent to the genre, but this movie built a world as deep or deeper than the one in Gladiator - or any of the greats for that matter. Egger’s ability to drop you straight into a new world, and have every single piece of it be completely believable will never cease to amaze me. Also, the final fight scene may be my new favorite 1 v 1 sword fight. Super fun movie!!
