      I think one that surly top all of those post must be "Pearl Harbor".

        Drat, I was going to go with Pearl Harbor! I guess I can settle for nominating "300".

        I just love it when a bunch of half naked guys with helmet and shield slaughter multitudes of better armored Asians. The way they break formation for individual hand to hand combat is also hilarious. The choreographer should have been so proud. The use of rhinos as well gave it just the right inaccurate touch.

            Braveheart.

            1.-The French woman that had a relationship with William was 3 or 4 when he was fighting the English.
            2.-Kilts weren't used back then.
            3.-The Brtish knights were portraited in uniform that matched each other, when they should have been dressed in different uniform, and they didn't have coat of arms.
            4.-Archers...don't think they dressed in the same uniforms/armor.
            5.-Same thing with the footsoldiers.

              Don't forget the "mutant" that executed Xerxes' generals that had failed him, or the "Immortals" which looked like something that crawled out of hell, or the giant thing that gave Leonidas his scar (the one on his eye).
              And don't forget the Spartans in the movie wore leather speedos.

                      "They died with their boots on" was supposed to cronicle George Custer's life but boy what a lot of literary license they took in telling it.

                      From his arrival at west-point, to his "accidental" promotion to Brigader General, to the engagemnet with Stuart at Gettysburg, then all of the bad distortions of the indian wars... oh man... they butchered his career to make an interesting movie.

                          I agree with the Braveheart posters. The battle of Stirling Bridge doesn't even have a bridge...

                          I like the crazy Irish guy in that movie though he ROCKS

                            I fully agree! It was the most important aspect of the battle. Not to mention a whole host of other things.

                            The Patriot is also horrible with regards to this.

                            In the words of Captain Blackadder they are about "as convincing as Dr Crippens defence lawyer." And, "the greatest work of fiction since vows of fidelity were included in the French marriage service."

                              Must be honest.. I never would have thought it would have been possible to make a film about Pearl Harbor where at the end of it I would be rooting for the Japanese to win

                                There is a story about this...Gibson was asked by a Scotsman why there wasn't a bridge in the film of the battle, " It got in the way" Gibson replied, " Aye, that's what the English found out as well " answered the Scotsman
