The Northman: 2/10

The less said about it the better. Just watch Vikings instead, it is a million times better.

Re: Rate the last movie you saw

You must be a minority there, I really enjoyed it and also 7.7/10 on IMDB and 89% rotten tomatoes.

So most others did too.

Re: Rate the last movie you saw

I honestly wanted to turn it off after 10 minutes and I kept going in 10 minute chunks hoping it would get better. The problem is that you can't help but compare to it Vikings and it fails in every respect. It lacks the scale, the story and everything else that Vikings does. The guy is supposed to be a king and the bulk of the film is spent on a farm. All the fight scenes felt overly choreographed and sluggish. Again, if that is all we ever had we wouldn't know better but I have seen it done better 1000 times in Vikings. People can argue that I shouldn't be comparing the two but it is only natural when you choose to make a film about Vikings and there has been a tv series around for the last 10 years. If I was making a film I would be aware of the comparison and be telling everyone we need to do it as good as Vikings and better.

Re: Rate the last movie you saw

Is Vilings accurate though or is it glammed up for TV? I've never seen it.

The Northman feels more visceral and looks gritty like you'd expect the era to be. They would likely be big brawls with big hits but because they were bigger its likely to seem slower. From the reviews I glanced over most were impressed by the look and feel of the film and how it draws you in.

Re: Rate the last movie you saw

I believe it is historically accurate with regards to characters, locations and events. The problem a lot of people have is the time line. They condense hundreds of years of history into years and a couple of decades. That is why they ended Vikings and brought in Vikings Valhalla. It allowed them to do a significant time jump and move onto something new.

Re: Rate the last movie you saw

I have never heard of it so I have just looked it up and I had this as well growing up (in the 90s) but it wasn't called Song of the South, it was called Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah. They must have changed the name at some point.

Itís the one that never gets shown on TV any more, and isnít available on Disney+, because it depicts slavery in the southern US as basically fine, because the slaves were mostly happy, and employs dialogue that turns its black characters into parodies.

It was also never released on VHS in the USA so Iím curious how truthful our resident retro American got his copy from.

It would be interesting to see it from a historic perspective.

Memory with Liam Neeson, Guy Pearce and Monica Bellucci. Decent enough movie worth a watch 7:10
