Hey kids. I need a list of historical movies based on true occurrences for a paper.

No mythology and no Passion of the Christ, or Passion of the Christ 2 please.

i'd say there are no movies based on real events that are completely true. all of them are "almost true."
#21
you do realize TS that there is no movie that is completely 100% accurate to a real event. if you want a movie thats historical the best you're gonna have to work with are documentaries.

Yeah, but I mean, I want something depicting historical events rather than focusing more on entertainment and having fact come as a second.

I'm talking movies in the vein of Downfall.

we were soldiers..

and the majority of war films, or so is my understanding..
"You're a twat!"- That dude in morrisons

"You Ugly git!" - That girl in the restaurant

"You Were a Mistake!" - Mum

just a few of my fans..

Just to correct someone earlier, I was chatting to my history teacher about 'Valkryie' and he said it was pretty far off the mark. Sorry TS it's really tough. I haven't seen in but 'The Motorcycle Diaries' was probably fairly accurate as it was based on a primary source.
