The Northman – Movie Review

The Northman written by Robert Eggers and Sjón follows the story of Amleth, a Norse prince who is Hel-bent on avenging his father’s death and his mother’s kidnapping.

The Green Knight – Movie Review

The Green Knight written and directed by David Lowery is a film that ultimately let me down.
