With all the hullabaloo over Avengers: Endgame in the cinemas (you did catch it on IMAX right...right?) and the last season of Game of Thrones on television, I thought I just drop a note on this low- (or mid?) budget fantasy horror film called The Head Hunter.
Having seen bigger budget fantasy films like The Lord of the Rings and so-so ones like The Seventh Son, The Head Hunter is a refreshing take on the fantasy genre focusing on just one dude, played by Christopher Rygh. Having lost his daughter to some devilish looking bad guys (and I don't mean this guy, I mean really horrible orc-faced wraith-like zombified meanies), the Head Hunter has to follow his king/lord/whoever's-upstairs' orders to take down one meanie at a time.
UPDATE 3 May 2019: So the Washington Post also has an article ridiculing the battle tactics the living made at Winterfell. No surprises there.
Saw episode 3 from Season 8 of HBO's Game of Thrones and had many concerns with the battle tactics employed by Jon and his band of merry brethren in the defense of Winterfell. Well, if you haven't seen it, best get going before clicking the next link.
The following link is an article from Vox.com where they interview several military experts on what went right (not many), what went wrong (too many) and what went silly (downright slap-in-the-forehead moments) in how the living defended their castle. Seriously, I'm tempted to do a comparison with the Battle of Helm's Deep from The Two Towers. Anyway, the article interviewed Ryan Grauer, an associate professor of international affairs at the University of Pittsburgh, and Mick Cook, an Australian combat veteran who fought in Afghanistan.
