    24 Reactions To "The Green Knight" — One Of The Best Movies Of The Year (If You Ask Me, The Person Writing This Post)

    Witches! Wonder! Dev Patel lookin' fine as hell while yelling at a fox!

    Look: I'm a simple woman. I see a medieval epic with a slight horror twist, a talking fox, a big tree man, and that sweet A24 logo... You can count me the heck in! So you already know I have thought of nothing but The Green Knight since it hit theaters a couple of weeks ago.
