Not fussed with Mel Gibson but I still liked Braveheart despite the nonsensical theory he fathered EII (even more incomprehensible re: our what happened to Ed thread than if Longshanks himself had LOL) I'm amused at the comparison to wardrobe in it....anyone seen the godawful Ian MacKellen Nazi version of Richard III? (tho props to the manner of Hastings's demise in that LOL)
I'm kinda eyerolling over the objections to The Patriot (which despite Mel again I enjoyed, RIP Heath Ledger)....politically correct madness at its finest methinks. They got peeps complaining there were no portrayals of slavery in it....are we in the right US war for that to be a picking pt? Methinks even the Brits hadn't outlawed it yet. I get rather fed up with pc stuff like that What part of "period piece" ain't they gettin? MGs character was said to be "loosely based" upon the exploits of Francis Marion AKA the Swamp Fox, not to actually BE him, so ya got license methinks. And who knows what sort of atrocities went down that we dunno about yrs later? Good grief, during the War of 1812 the Americans burnt York (Toronto) to the foundations, promptly followed by relatiation from the British on the entire US side of the Niagara River. My backyard was toast LOL War ain't pretty.
Anyhoo....have they missed anything you peeps think is even more historically wrong? (we shall note TTOS as a given)
