Who gave the green light to make this thing?
There are movies so bad that they draw you in because you just have to see where the trainwreck happens. Then there are movies so bad there isn’t even a train wreck. It’s just bad.
The Green Knight is the latter. Every scene seemed worse than the one before it. Random things happen. For no apparent reason. In no particular order.
I’m not sure what the tone of the movie was supposed to be or the point of it.
Not only was the story incoherent for one based on an epic poem, it included a high on mushrooms psychedelic scene and a fake “this could be your future” sequence that we don’t know is fake until we’re suddenly pulled back.
But that’s just my opinion.
