Weekend Watchlist – 3/3/23 – I’m a big Dan Carlin fan and his new episode “Twilight of the Aesir” has me in an ancient history Viking mood.

My top 3 picks for this weekend are: 

  1. The Northman
    • The Northman has been on my mind for several days since watching Vinland Saga last week. It’s a visceral, high-octane thrill ride through ancient mythology. Read my full review here.
  2. Braveheart
    • Braveheart is one of my favorite Mel Gibson movies and is probably his most iconic. Who among us hasn’t ever wanted to stand in front of an open field and scream “They may take our lives but they will never take our FREEEEEDOOOOOOOM” and then charge towards certain death? Nobody? Just me?
  3. Gladiator
    • Ridley Scott directs Russell Crowe and Joaquin Phoenix to form one of the most amazing sword and sandal movies of all time. The scale and detail in this movie redefined the gladiator genre in a way that hadn’t been done since the original Spartacus.

Dylan created Movies Not Films as a fun project to stay occupied during the start of the global COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Movies and TV shows had always been a big part of his life, but he never thought to share his thoughts online. Dylan started with a simple movie diary on a spreadsheet and eventually transformed it into with a robust catalog of reviews, suggestions, and ranking lists. Currently living with his now-fiancé and two dogs, Dylan has a full time career but still makes time to watch all the latest movies and most of the new TV shows. Movies Not Films boasts a modest subscriber count and releases several new posts per week.
