Nameja gredzens (2018)
Not for me.
People who give this over 8 are probably Latvians. I don't want to call this one terrible, but it's certainly not good. First of all, the acting is not there, cringe inducing at times. Then you have colliding accents. Guys, Latvian and British accents never go together. It's either a lack of budget or just terrible accent coaches involved in production. Second, the storyline goes nowhere - it's just another of those historic movies with three main aspects - nature shots, battles and a filler love story. The cinematography is beautiful, but it does not help when you sit through something that's as entertaining as watching paint dry. Pagan King is totally fine for Latvia's 100 year commemoration, not a bit enough to step into a bigger market like it was advertised.
This will go down in history. This will be shown in schools. Truly shocking and extremely realistic. And that's coming from an ex-Soviet citizen. I was amazed how detailed everything was, even the representation of the evil Soviet regime. Totally on point. And that was just the first episode, can't wait for more.
A Dog's Way Home (2019)
A very generic dog movie. Watered down version of 'A Dog's Purpose'. A little weird that this story was even acquired by Sony, as it is so incredibly simple and corny. Not gonna say it wasted my time, but I expected something a little bit better. And the dog's voice is so annoying, makes you hesitate if you should continue watching.
