This list should have been longer.

You all know that I'm a sucker for Historical Movies. I love movies that have to do with any and all parts of history. That doesn't mean that I don't pick them apart because the amateur historian in me is highly annoyed by fixable or avoidable inaccuracies. It's because of this that I found it highly amusing to turn on my computer yesterday and see Yahoo's: The 10 Most Historically Inaccurate Movies.

I enjoyed some of the movies on this list a lot. The Patriot, Braveheart, 300, The last Samurai, and Elizabeth: The Golden Age were movies I highly enjoyed watching. Gladiator sucked, I regretted paying to see it in the theater.

I thought the Gladiator was pretty good, so good in fact I went and bought the DVD of it.

Of course though, Russell Crow is just plan hot in the movie!

'Course, we have been calling foul on these movies for a long time.

The Last Samurai??? You mean with Tom "dork" Cruise? The one where "all white men suck" and "all Japanese women who work in the rice paddies all day are gorgeous"? And the "aren't those guys fighting for a losing cause against a greater force so noble"? UCK!!! Gag me. There's a couple hours of my life I won't get back again.

I much prefer Gladiator thank you very much. Joaquin Phoenix was wonderfully smarmy and evil it was fun to watch him.
