2006's first versus is between two popular, historically inaccurate, pre-20th century war films.

ZULU
Brits (mainly Welsh) defend an outpost against "Zulus...farzands of 'em". Led by a top Hollywood star with a dubious accent. ZU-LOOOOOOOOO

BRAVEHEART
Scots fight the evil English for independence. Led by a top Hollywood star with a dubious accent. FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEDOM

Get voting. I really wanna see those fingers.

Either I'm reading both of the options wrong (possible) or they are both awful (probable).

Zulu. I do quite like it but i'd watch nearly anything over Braveheart, apart from maybe the Patriot...


Edited for typos.

Went for Zulu. Other than the well executed (yet historically laughable) battle scenes, Braveheart is a floppy, untidy, unwashed cock.

Zulu bored me. So did Braveheart. And Mel Gibbon [sic] is a bit of a tosspot.

Zulu, no doubt. I love the "Men of Harlech" scene.

I went for Braveheart, purely and simply for the battle scenes which were phenominal.

Braveheart has higher production values, but it's Zulu for me.

I think as an English person I'm not allowed to like Braveheart, am I? It's so anti-english as to defy belief. But that's not the reason I don't like it.

It's highly concentrated sentimentalist claptrap IMO, more so than practically every other film.

Besides, Michael Caine Kicks Arse.

well yes and no. Do you remember that documentary a while ago that said that Rourke's Drift rose to such cultural prominence becuase the British needed some sort of good news story to cover up for a massive defeat they had recently suffered?...so whilst Braveheart is less "factually" accurate, both are products of nationalist myth construction... Personally I like Braveheart more, less morally contentious, and more obviously stupid and enjoyable as a piece of Hollywood history warping crap. I like the way it tries to manipulate your emotions so obviously, like a soapy hand job for your feelings.

While a lot of people say that Braveheart is anti English, and it is to a certain extent, I can't say that it exactly casts a lot of the Scots in the best light either. The Scots nobles selling out to get themselves a bit more land for instance. And as to the brutality of it, both sides weren't exactly bloodless. We hear of York being 'sacked', and I wouldn't imagine for a minute they just mean that the Scots army will pop down the local boozer and have a quick punch up with a few locals.
