I have to admit it scares me when someone states a historical fact and then says “I saw it in the movie …” And I’m not talking about a documentary. Makes me wonder what else they believe hook, line & sinker.
Don’t get me wrong. I love some of these supposedly historical movies ~ I mean really, Mel Gibson as William Wallace was not tough to watch but I really wish there was a disclaimer at the beginning which read “This movie is not factual ~ listen to your history teacher”
What made me think of all of this is Yahoo’s list of the Top 10 Historically Inaccurate Movies. Click here to check it out. It gave me a chuckle.
