Did you enjoy Kingdom of Heaven?

How historically accurate it was?

What is Jerusalem worth?

I kind of enjoyed it, but no it wasn't very historically accurate, especially in how it made all the characters modern day atheist cynics, which doesn't fit that time at all.
>>
>Did you enjoy Kingdom of Heaven?
the DIrector's Cut is in my top 10 all time

>How historically accurate it was?
not very, although probably more than the average Hollywood movie

I liked it.

Not very.

Yeah, this triggered me as well.

Directors cut is much better than the standard film and probably one of my favourite films. I dont think it's very accurate though, but i dont know much about that period.
>>
>>74709
Not accurate but still a very good film.
>>
Not very. I can give them credit that they're wearing the right armor for the most part, but fuck when is Hollywood going to realize you can't cut through that stuff? Unless somebody judo flips a Knight or heavily armored Saracen onto the ground and stabs them in the face, those fights would go on for a while.
>>
I think I'd have enjoyed it more if it had less romance and used that time for more neutral political intrigue, maybe even more screen time for the Saracens.

All the best characters didn't get enough screen time. I think a movie about Liam Neeson and Bloom with their motley band from the beginning of the movie would have been neat. Or maybe a buddy-cop sort of thing with Bloom and Siddiq playing dual protags trying in vain to use their personal friendship to stop an inevitable war.

No, it wasn't historically accurate, but damn it looks so good.
>>
>>75045
I think they gave the Saracens armor that was a century or two too advanced for the era, but it did look amazing.

Yes.

It was modern. Every christian is a fanatic dumb, muslims did nothing wrong, and every intelligent character is an "hidden atheist".

If i search for "fantasy" crusades I prefer re-read the "gerusalemme liberata" by Tasso.

great aesthetics - 300 tier historical accuracy

if you want a breakdown of just how bad it is there is a series on it in the RealCrusadesHistory channel on YouTube (pretty good /his/ channel desu)

The ending is trash and completely ruins everything good built up before it

I like any movie that has Jeremy Irons in.

Most of the movie is centered around the the Battle of Hattin, and follows Balian of Ibelin.

I can't speak for historical accuracy, but I didn't notice anything glaring besides the characters and ideology revised to meet modern expectations.

Most of the movie is a 3-hour long version of the battle of Helm's Deep

>>75460
>Every christian is a fanatic dumb
no they're not. There's like 2 bad Christians in the entire movie
>>
>>76219
what movie have you watched?
In my, even baldwin were atheist.
>>
>>77124
the only bad Christians are Guy and Reynald

I don't know what you mean by "atheist"
>>
>>74709
I enjoyed that it had a fucking budget and people working in the costume department that gave a fuck. Even background extra knights who where so far back they where fuzzy blurs had accurate armour. Everyone but Legolas was tops in the acting department and the movie would have been a lot better if it was just about Neeson's group fucking shit up.
>>
>>77150
GOD WILLS IT.
C'mon m8. It was biased as fuck towards Muslims and Atheists. Besides from that I enjoy watching the movie.
>>
>>74709
It was fairly accurate, aside from completely changing the character of Balian to make him a young man raised as a peasant, when the real Balian was more like the character of his father in the movie.
>>
Since we're talking about historical movies, same questions for 300?
>>
>>78266
I enjoyed 300 as the stupid action spectacle it is

but it's pretty much 100% wrong on everything

God was literally a character in the movie, Anon.

pretty funny. Greentext is highbrow humor.

This.

Theatrical release was garbage. Directors cut was excellent. Overture, Intermission, Entr'acte.

One of my professors wrote a scathing review of it an historical journal. Don't remember exactly where but his name is Paul Crawford if you want to look around

Excluding the characters and their affiliations?
