This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

The Northman
« on: May 24, 2022, 04:09:19 PM »
Greetings!

I recently saw the film, "The Northman".

I think that the film was outstanding! Excellent acting, cinematography, soundtrack, direction, and production. Definitely a historical masterpiece! The film was very refreshing in being a well-grounded, historical, mystical film based on real history, real culture, and real mythology, and not a bunch of fucking woke, superhero bullshit.

The film was riveting from beginning to end. A fantastic film, and well worth seeing again and again.

Semper Fidelis,

And at last, each will own the privilege of looking inside himself  to discover what truly resides there. Comfort is an illusion. A false security bred from familiar things and familiar ways. It narrows the mind. Weakens the body. And robs the soul of spirit and determination. Comfort is neither welcome nor tolerated here."

I found it too weird. I mean, if it really is based on Viking culture then Viking culture is kinda dumb.
