Guys, what are your favourite 'historical' movies ? Movies that were set way back in time. They don't have to be 'real', just 'historical'.. smile.gif

Braveheart & The Last Samurai spring to mind. Also, 300 was very enjoyable. I haven't seen Troy yet, is that any good ?

Well...Star Wars is set way back in time if you look at the starting credits..."a long time ago in a galaxy far away" biggrin.gif

Other than that, 300, Troy (yes, it's very good! Watch it!) and even Clash of the Titans and Wrath of the Titans are among my favs. Immortals is also great.

+1 to Ben Hur, watch it as well!

Yeah, right! And what I just realized...your name is Ben!! So you have to see Ben Hur!

It is usually shown on TV around Christmas in Germany...bet it's the same in England.

Rob Roy is good too I think I recall.

I just saw Centurion tonight, not great. Alexander, Immortals, and Arthur are not either, but ok to watch once.

Das Boot- one of my very favorite films.

The U-boat they used to film this movie is at a museum near me. Talk about living in tight quarters!

Some other good epics that haven't been mentioned.

Tombstone
Gangs of New York
Master and Commander
Platoon

I have never seen Ben Hur... sounds like I should though.

What a classic... a lot of people who love war movies didn't like Apocalypse Now because it was a bit more cerebral than just an action movie.. but it's brilliant ! smile.gif
