Instead of watching the French presidential election, I went to the movies and watched The Northman with my wife yesterday afternoon. I will just say it is … sort of different.
We both enjoyed the movie. I thought it leaned too heavily into the myth of the Dark Ages even though the gist of the film was historically accurate. The idea that the Vikings were White Nationalists is absurd. They sold tons of slaves from what is now Ukraine to the Arabs in exchange for silver coins.
