Viking-The Darkest Day will appeal to fans of medieval fiction and dark historical stories. The film is well made, has good production values and possesses a musical score that enhances what is a solid adventure period film.

About Bat 7853 Articles
I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: GTA Online & Mortal Kombat 11


  1. Braveheart, although about as factual as a fair story it pulls few punches and is a stand out of any film where the main weapons are swords

  2. Full Metal Jacket – A modern period battle film but a classic. Shows the horrors of war and it’s effect on the soldiers. Funny, shocking and real.

  3. Gods and Generals – Shows the horrors and pointlessness of war right next to the fervour and patriotism that drives men to fight. Cool battle scenes but also shows the huge cost and scale of industrialised war on civilians. Also shows heroes on both sides.

  4. Brave heart – I’ve a photo of me wearing Mel Gibsons William Wallace outfit, cos we’re like really close friends.
    Actually, Braveheart’s movie stuff was at the museum & we got to try the outfits on.
    But, Mellie wants to be really close friends, but I don’t go for men in skirts ….usually!
    The scene when he shouts ‘freedom’ gives me goosegogs!
    Great film!

  5. My fave is definitely ‘Glory’ set during the American Civil War. It’s a brilliant film…great performances by Denzel Washington and Matthew Broderick – so moving…especially the end (which I wont give away)…just truely memorable, definitely a must see!!

  6. Excalibur. I saw it when i was young and it still holds up today. Visaully the battle scenes look amazing and the music adds to the tension.

  7. Gallipoli – poignant as WW1 anniversary approaches and for me illustrates how so many young men were desperate to fight for the noblest of intentions but quickly changed their minds when confronted with the horror and waste of life. AND it too has Mel Gibson

  8. Just occured to me NAPOLEON with Rod Stieger as the vertically-challenged Emperor. Great acting (does anyone remember acting???), vast armies resplendent in bright uniforms, the pomp and ceremony, the rules of war and the detatched aloofness of the British upper class. Superb!!!!
