Quote by vintage x metal
I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

This would be all fine and well if those movies ever claimed to be historically accurate. Otherwise we might just as well say that the lord of the rings movies are inaccurate from a physics point of view...

The Patriot
Revolutionary War figure Francis "The Swamp Fox" Marion was the basis for Mel Gibson's character, but he wasn't the forward-thinking family man they show in the flick. He was a slave owner who didn't get married (to his cousin) until after the war was over. Historians also say that he actively persecuted and murdered native Cherokees. Plus, the climatic Battle of Guilford Court House where he vanquishes his British nemesis? In reality, the Americans lost that one.





Mel Gibson is a ****

I love how they put 2001: A Space Odyssey in there... I mean seriously now.

But we don't know the year.
Maybe it's supposed to happen in a lot of million years from now?

Nuclear Holocaust ---> Humans are extinct ---> Millions of years pass ---> You get Hobbits and mages on LSD.

Yea lol, Mel Gibson has that one, Braveheart, and Apocalypto up there. Maybe he just does suck.
#12
them putting 2001 a space odyssey on there is like putting I Am Legend on it because it doesn't depict the zombie holocaust well enough... of course 2001 is inaccurate, its based on a book written quite a while ago
#13
yeah, a lot of 'em weren't really suprising
but still some good movies on that list

I'm surprised they didn't put Passion of the Christ up there as well.

True. Like Star Wars looks all futuristic, but it's actually set long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away.

Alternate world = own timeline, and perhaps own physical properties

I believe it's the third age

And I doubt the laws of physics will change into LOTR ones, even though that would be awesome.

Yeah there was no empire in 10,000 B.C. everyone was just a bunch of nomads. Also, did anyone else find it odd that the rainforest was located right next to the snowy wasteland and the desert right next to the rain forest?

"But according to the history books, Isabella was three years old at the time of Falkirk, and Edward III was born seven years after Wallace died."

So Wallace was a time traveling pedo.....so what?

how about the way your entire country generalizes a culture by the actions of a few, citing any Americans idea of a middle eastern person.

Why is 2001: A Space Odyssey in there? I mean, they wouldn't put Fahrenheit 451 in there, or a 1984 movie, or perhaps Animal Farm, God forbid? Do they really think they were based on the present?

These movies are meant to entertain, not to inform. Regardless of the historical accuracy, Gladiator and Braveheart were still awesome movies.

They both sucked ass.

Ok they didn't. In fact, I saw Gladiator more than five times. Russel Crowe was awesome.

everyone knows that

300 was based off of a graphic novel, it wasn't trying to teach a history lesson.

that's the problem with this list, it acts like these movies tried to re-tell history when in reality they are just meant to entertain.

well, quite. i think U571 is probably a prime example, because the inaccuracy of it is actually incredibly offensive, given the lack of credit it gives to people who are still living.

They put 2001 in without A ClockWork Orange.

Both were set in the future when the books/films were made.
