The Northman is a hard pass for me. I don't watch anything that gives me anxiety or makes me squint the whole time. LOLReplyDelete
It does seem very dark, the director said it will show us how witches really looked like, not your Hocus Pocus thing...Delete
Yeah. Dark films (shadowy) are hard to watch for lots of people. lolReplyDelete
I don't know why they like to shoot them like that these days, it is irritating.Delete
Another dark epic film! I like the storyline and the acting looks amazing. I always like Nicole Kidman and Anya Taylor looks perfect for her part-bewitchingly beautiful.
Glad you liked it.Delete
Too bad it's so dark. I'd watch to see what Irish scenery they included in the film if I could actually see it LOLReplyDelete
Those were some very dark times indeed, not that ours are much lighter....Delete
