Here we go again with the time period theme which I won’t excel at ever! It’s not that I hate these types of themes, it’s just I suck at them, which I guess means I don’t really like period movies in general. But for this one, I still managed to scrape together three recommendations, though it was a close call. Especially since one of the picks is almost forgotten for me and all I can remember is that I think I enjoyed it years ago.
This being the latest and the best recommendation in this list, and it is definitely the strongest folklore movie I’ve seen. Granted, I haven’t seen many, but I think the closeness to Estonian culture makes The Witch stand out for me. It has that similarity and a vibe that just appeals to my roots.
I don’t think this is Leonardo DiCaprio’s best work but it’s still rather decent. The movie doesn’t really stand out with anything and I can hardly remember it, but I do remember Jeremy Irons’s performance. Then again, no matter how bad the movie, I’ll always remember Irons’s performance because the man’s voice is like honey to my ears.
It’s been years since I last saw this movie and even though I really want to revisit it, I’m still an emotional wreck whenever I see Heath Ledger on screen. I don’t know what it is but man, I think I have to get over it by watching a lot of his movies since I pretty much own most of them. I still need to hunt down A Knight’s Tale though, because it’s such a classic in my eyes.. and Heath, my god, he is wonderful in this movie!
