The 2018 Christmas season is winding down and soon the lights and decorations will be rigged down. Meanwhile I have had my fill of sugary sentimental movies and am ready for a change of pace. Let’s get Medieval.
For all you cable cutting rebels searching for something to stream this weekend, here is the pick of the week available on Netflix and Prime Video.
Solomon Kane 2009 action adventure fantasy
James Purefoy plays the main character, Solomon Kane, who is much darker and more conflicted than your average movie hero. The pace of the movie is unhurried and gives Kane time to grow instead of becoming lost in wave after wave of action sequences. The excellent production creates a believable Medieval world that is gritty, violent, and plagued by evil occult powers. The imagination of Robert E. Howard is created right before our eyes; it is frightening and believable.
