No, Braveheart wouldn't count either. True story/Biopic will be one of the next categories. Anything pre-1900 suffices here.


I'm pretty sure there were no moving pictures pre1900.

And for the record, fug what the Scots do and don't like. What have they ever contributed besides hitting a ball with a crooked stick. Haggas eating, skirt wearing log tossers.

Noty saying it's the best or anything, but 'Gangs of New York' could get a mention here. It's got a lot of physical detail to the Civil War era, visuals and all, and the story was more less based on real people.

Great call, one of the most underrated movies IMO.

He meant the movie had to be set pre 1900 not that it was filmed in 1890 lol. He is also being a bit too specific but oh well. Didnt want anything based on a true story.



Gee, ya think? Moving pictures were barely around pre1900. I will defer though to FLPats if he remembers differently.

*note - I do not actually think FLPats is more than 110 years old as Willard has not shown his picture on TV.

Other than that I can't think of anything else that fit's the criteria.



That part where the Lion jumps out...having seen the movie before and watching it with a bunch of girls in college...I waited and waited, smiling the whole time. Right as the lion jumps out and crushes, I scared the shiz out of the girl next to me as it happened.

Good times.


I nominate Last of the Mohicans. Daniel Day Lewis was a bad mofo.
