Historical film sub-topic?

Postby barkybree » Wed Apr 07, 2010 10:42 pm

How about a sub-topic to discuss historical or historic-themed movies? I know there are fans of Braveheart and other period-piece films out there, seeing as how most fantasy films are set in a undoubtedly human historic world, seems like a good fit.

Thanks for thinking of this, Barky! I am definitely in!

I'm an unrepentant anglophile, so a lot of my favorites are set there - beginning with the Plantagenet kings through the Tudors - especially ones having to do with the crown vs church. I've been calling "Braveheart" and "Rob Roy", THE GREAT SCOT DOUBLE FEATURE because I like to watch them back to back. As for other movies, anything with subtitles is fine, just please don't dub it - I'm begging here.

I hope others will see this and something can get started :).

Sounds fine to me guys. I'm game for trying anything to start with and we can always fiddle with it later if it doesn't turn out how we like :)

I will add it to my long list of things to do on my day off tomorrow :D

A good WWII movie called Silent Night about Christmas Eve in Germany.
