    Hamish Linklater's back must hurt for carrying this whole show on his shoulders.

    Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

    ★★★★

    Probably my favorite Indy film: a holy battle between Shiva and Kali mediated through such a cartoonish sense of adventure that the plot basically ends 30 minutes before the end of the film, leaving time for a final battle / chase scene where nothing substantial really happens, but it's the best part of the film. After multiple viewings of all Indiana Jones pictures I can fairly say that what Spielberg gave to the franchise, aka pristine and universal visual energy, far exceeds in quality what Lucas did, aka writing the characters and worldbuilding.

    The Northman

    ★★

    The Northman is two movies at once. A devilish auteur adventure into Norse mythology and a GoT-like fantasy blockbuster slowed down with reverb. Eggers tried his best to make a thing that absolutely shouldn't work, work. He succeeds when he doesn't take himself or his characters too seriously. Best scene: the first ritual. Worst scene: the battle in the climax
