The Eagle Huntress – Review

Animal carcasses, purple nail polish, harsh, remote mountains, and a giggly 13-year-old girl. To view these facets of the 2016 documentary The Eagle Huntress in isolation, is to assume that they wouldn’t mesh ‘properly’ together.

Well, it essentially fails at providing audiences with a similarly satisfying proverbial blow to the gut.

How many sequels does a rom-com need before it can be retired for good? For what it’s worth though, Bridget Jones’s Baby is not completely terrible.
