Dog and The Head Hunter

Two movies unrelated to Dog the Bounty Hunter.

Dog (2022)

A soldier (played by Channing Tatum) benched due to his PTSD and documented TBI eagerly tries to get back in the fight, but is first tasked to take a military dog, just as broken as he is, to his handler's funeral. Shenanigans ensue, but are they interesting? Mildly. Alas, that's not enough for me to recommend this.

The Head Hunter

This fantasy horror movie soley focuses on a warrior hermit and titular Head Hunter (Cristopher Rygh) who is summoned via horn call and given jobs through scrolls attached to arrows to go slay beasts in the kingdom. His level of isolation makes me wonder if this was a COVID film?

Anyway, he's pretty good at it based on his trophy collection BUT, and this is a HUGE BUT... almost all combat is off screen. You hear it, but don't see it as he literally leaves and comes back bloodied. It's kind of annoying. Just like that silly window in his cabin. An interesting experiment for sure, but not one I'd actively recommend unless you're looking for something "different".
