Movie Review Flashback: ‘The Eagle Huntress’ and Why You Should Watch It

A few years ago my family and I went to see this amazing documentary about a teenage girl who wants to become the first eagle huntress in Mongolia in our local indie theater. I thought it would be fantastic to look back at this movie review which was one of the first  I had ever written on this blog and I hope you enjoy!

The Reason Why I Loved this Beautiful Documentary

This documentary, narrated by Daisy Ridley, follows the wonderful story of a teenage girl named Aisholpan who becomes the first eagle huntress in Mongolia.

We are introduced to her at a boarding school located in a small town miles away from her home. It’s the last day of school for that week and she is taken home by her father on their cute moped. Her family is nomads that live in a simple circular hut in the midst of a vast barren plain edged with beautiful rocky mountains. Her family consists of a younger sister, younger brother, her mother, and her father.

A Six-Year Poster Evolution: Bucky Barnes

Bucky Barnes is one of those characters that I didn’t know very well at first (because I hadn’t seen Captain America: The First Avenger) but it wasn’t long before I was totally invested in this character. From intimidating villain to redeemed hero Bucky Barnes has had one of the most complex storylines in the MCU. Now, with another obstacle to face (his tragic demise) another cog has been placed in his storyline, making him all the more intriguing.

So, on that note, here’s a look at his astounding character posters. Enjoy!

Captain America: The Winter Soldier


Bucky’s inclusion in The Winter Soldier was easily one of the reasons why the film was my favorite Marvel film for years. I loved how, through the first half of the movie, we never got to see his face, leaving him as this mysterious assassin who was incredibly skilled and actually posed a legitimate threat against the heroes. And then, when his mask was removed, and The Winter Soldier turned out to actually be Steve’s best friend, Bucky Barnes, my jaw dropped.

It was an amazing twist that left me beaming with happiness. And then, to have him turn good at the end was all the more rewarding.

This poster represents all the cool aspects of Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier. I love the snarl, for it highlights him in a more villainous light. And the face paint makes him even more intimidating, almost savage. Plus the big gun in hand, it iterates the clear fact that he is not a man to be reckoned with. Such a cool poster.
