    Sundown

    ★★★★

    Tim Roth is probably one of the most underrated actors out there. You don't really hear from him in tabloids or whatever, he's lowkey, and then BAM...he nails another great performance. "Sundown" was written perfectly for Roth in my opinion.

    That opening shot tells it all. Roth staring at fish, gasping for air...or water..whatever, the look on his face. Here we go, this IS an existential drama.
    Yes, and it was...fantastic. Ofcourse you had to throw in another one of…

    ★★

    Well, what can I say....they tried, and they failed.

    When starting a movie project, one must always decide what to go for. A realistic drama? Goofy action not to be taken seriously? Survival thriller?
    "Lou" gave us a mixed bag of all of the above while keeping a straight face. This was to be taken dead serious.

    It's just so simple, assemble a crew, get a briefcase, tentions run high, can't trust this one, can't trust that one, bang, bang, car chase, boom!

    You gotta love it, I did, and I still do after all this time.
    Brilliant cast, I mean, you got Reno, De Niro, Jonathan Pryce, Natascha McElhone, Sean Bean and Stellan Skarsgard...what more do you want?

    It's straight to the point here. No fancy special effects or color corrections, just good choreography and stuntwork.
    I've said it back then, and I'll say it again, "Ronin" has the best car chases, period.

    The Northman

    ★★★★½

    A Vikingage tale of revenge seasoned like only Eggers could.
    Not a blatant copy of the story of old and not quite the same as Saxo Grammaticus's interpretation. "The Northman" weaves bits and pieces of history and legend together, with a royal portion of poetic edda, to make it's own fascinating, brutal yet beautiful interpretation.
    I was pleasantly surprised by Ethan Hawke, less so by Kidman's performance, but the towering Skarsgard and delightful Anya were, not to my surprise, terrific.…
