Robert Eggers Ranked
The Nigh-Masterpieces

Yeah, a rewatch made this even more awesome and epic than before. Now that I've seen and watching through the lens of a Viking tale with all of its rituals and mythology, everything becomes clearer and aids in the scale of the story. The film's still epic. It's still brutal and it's still what a Viking revenge story should.

Robert Eggers enveloped once again, the pacing was fixed (though it still had some issues in the second act) and moved a whole lot faster, the score's awesome and both Alexander Skarsgard (Amleth) and Nicole Kidman's (Queen Gudrun) performances are even better. The score's phenomenal, too!

Go watch this!
