Young Royals Season 2: A Non-Spoiler Review

Reading Time: 4 minutes The long-awaited second season of the successful and acclaimed series Young Royals arrived on Netflix recently. This show certainly seems to have connected both with its target audience (it is a teen show) and also with those who are far removed from that.

Deadwind Season 3: Non-Spoiler Review

Reading Time: 4 minutes It’s been a long wait for season 3 of Deadwind to appear on Netflix (a year since it aired in Finland). As a fan of the first two seasons, I was very keen to see what this, the final season, would bring.

Troll Hunter ~ Non-Spoiler Review

Reading Time: 3 minutes I do love a horror film, have I mentioned that before? I also appreciate horror films that have a sense of humour. This mockumentary fits the bill perfectly. Putting up with some adverts on ITVHUB was a small price to pay for the opportunity to watch Troll Hunter which I had never had the chance to see before even though it’s been around for over a decade.

Snabba Cash Season 2 ~ Spoiler Review

Reading Time: 5 minutes One of the highlights of my Nordic viewing last year was season 1 of Snabba Cash. Impressive cast, gritty story, well-written, exciting, tragic and captivating. Something that felt “real” in the same vein as Top Boy but doing its own thing with a similar scenario.

The Lørenskog Disappearance: A Spoiler Review

Reading Time: 4 minutes Now, this show is about an event and its investigation and effects which is VERY recent with those affected still alive so, bearing that in mind, I also pondered how much consent was sought before this was made.

Diorama: A Non-Spoiler Review

Reading Time: 3 minutes “Wow!” this film has a fantastic cast! This was my first thought upon seeing that Diorama had arrived without fanfare on Netflix. I love David Dencik and Claes Bang as actors, and many of the rest of the cast, so what could possibly go wrong? Unfortunately, quite a lot.

Entrapped ~ A Non-Spoiler Review

Reading Time: 5 minutes As a fan of Baltasar Kormákur’s work (I love his “eye”) and having enjoyed season 1 of Trapped a great deal (less so season 2 but it was still a decent enough watch) I was all geared up to watch season 3 as soon as I saw that it was in production. Well, it’s been quite a wait all in all, including the almost year since it aired in Iceland, but here it is, with a slightly different title (see notes above) but the same main cast and much of the same production team. Was I a teeny bit excited to watch? Bet your life I was. So, what did I make of Entrapped once I had watched it and had time to let it percolate.

Loving Adults: Spoiler Review

Reading Time: 5 minutes I am a fan of Dar Salim. Loving Adults makes for a round dozen films and TV shows that I have watched him in, everything from A War and Darkland, Borgen, Game of Thrones, Warrior and lots in between. I also really like the actor Lars Ranthe, having watched him in lots of productions, including the Oscar-winning Another Round. I was, therefore, really looking forward to seeing this new, Danish feature film on Netflix (I have been following its progress for ages!) I’ve learned over the years to temper my expectations for films and series, so I did just that before settling down to watch. What did I make of this new movie?

Rig 45: A Non-Spoiler Review

Reading Time: 4 minutes Well know, the big attraction (or attractions) of Rig 45 for me was the cast, especially the Scandinavians but also wee Gary Lewis. Since it is an older series, in the scheme of things, but now free on Walter Presents with lots of actors I like I thought to myself “What could possibly go wrong?”

Blasted: A Non-Spoiler Review

Reading Time: 3 minutes “When a former childhood friend crashes Sebastian’s bachelor party and makes it all about himself, only an alien invasion can make them put aside their bad blood and reunite as the kick-ass laser-tag duo they once were.” IMDb
