    Braveheart is all over the shop. I love a period piece but it ruins the immersion for me when there's so much wrong with the historical accuracy.
     
  1. Not entirely fictional. It's partly based on a true story about the Niland brothers that served in the US Army during WW2.

  2. I know, his sword was nowhere near big enough. I’ve been to Stirling castle and I’ve seen William Wallace’s actual sword and it was friggin massive.

    Easily the most impressive part of his story and it was glossed over!

    Bloody Hollywood!

    He hates the English I've heard so he makes them look like bastards. Look at how he made them complete assholes in The Patriot too.

    Speaking of historically inaccurate movies, I really liked The Greatest Showman, I actually really, really liked it.

  7. I just watched the Netflix movie 'The boy who harvested the Wind' and I enjoyed it. Nothing spectacular but due to it's truthful origins it makes the movie that little bit special. A feel good ending never goes astray.
     
  8. Captain Marvel was pretty damn good.

    Felt very gen 1 Marvel movie too.

    I'm off to see it tonight. :) It is actually released here at the same time for once.
     
  10. Two end credit scenes. The second one isn't important but kind of amusing.

    That is actually really good to know because the cleaners at the cinema are as annoying as anything and tell people to get out when the credits roll.

    I'm seeing it in 4D, do you guys have that back there yet?

    Ditched work early yesterday to go watch it. I went in expecting it to be decent and I was pleasantly surprised that it was better than that.

    The scene where she realises the true extent of her powers was just plain fun.
