Ridley Scott’s epic Gladiator (2000) starring Russell Crowe and Joaquin Phoenix is an era defining film, but as history goes it is totally off the rails. Is it historical fiction? Speculative history? Alternate History? Total bullocks? Does it even matter? As a popcorn epic, Gladiator is only concerned with one question: “Are you not entertained?!”
Yes, it is that time again for another edition of… A.D. History Watches! Sit back and enjoy as Paul and Patrick breakdown a film that can truly be described as a “Rome’s Greatest Hits” movie, that throws history to the fields of Elysium.
