Index of Movies

This page serves as an index for the films I’ve reviewed, at least until I figure out a less clumsy way for people to know which films they can find on my blog. If you want to read the posts for a film listed on this page, use the search feature.

Most of these films and shows have more than a single post devoted to them. The links here are to the first post.

  1. I am sooo excited to find this page! I too am always interested in the historical accuracy of movies. I insist that there should be a flashing green light of to the side to indicate, “Yes, this is accurate!” LOL

    Thank you!

  2. I found your blog through Kathryn Warner’s Edward II page on Facebook and read your post about Braveheart’s overtones. I came here to see what else you’ve written about. I hope you don’t mind me making a suggestion. If it’s unwanted, please ignore me!

    To curate your posts a little better, you can use WordPress’s “Category” feature. Make a category for each movie, then assign every post to the relevant movie. Once you’ve done that, you can hyperlink the movie titles on this page so that they link to the relevant category, bringing up all the posts you’ve written about that movie.

    I hope this explanation doesn’t make things even more confusing. Please let me know if you have any questions 🙂

    • I started thinking about using Categories over the weekend, but I haven’t had time to sit down and figure out how it works (despite being a blogger, I’m not very tech-savvy). If I can find the time this week (or if my tech-slave/husband has time) I’ll see if I can get it done. Thanks for the advice!

  3. I am surprised you have not given a review on the Tudors or The White Queen.

  4. My friends and family give me a hard time because I complain about historical inaccuracies in movies. They say, “it’s a movie, get over it”. I say if they’re not going to make it accurate, why use real people and places? I’m glad I found your site and can’t wait to read more of your reviews. Carry on the fight for truth in film!

  5. Apparently, today is “Hug your medievalist day”. So here’s a cyber-hug for you, and thank you for this very interesting and informative blog. 🙂

    • Thank you. It is indeed Hug a Medievalist Day. It’s not yet a Federal holiday, but I’m sure it will be eventually, due to overwhelming popular demand

  6. Not sure if this is something you would review or not, but I love the documentary series “Monarchy”, and would like an expert’s view on how accurate it is. Being a documentary, I would assume it was much more accurate than any movie, but I have seen a few documentaries that use assumptions and theories instead of facts. My favorite sections are the ones leading up to and including the Tudors.

    • I have thought about doing a documentary, because some of them are very problematic. But there are so many that I’m not sure that the audience will be likely to have seen any specific one.

  7. I found your blog through Frock Flicks. I’m very glad I did, as you’ve been a source of great entertainment and information. I wondered if you’d encountered a 1993 film called “Anchoress”, directed by Chris Newby. I stumbled over it in college. It’s supposed to be based on accounts of a 14th century English anchorite named Christine Carpenter. I wasn’t a fan of the pacing, but it’s an interesting, small film. I admit complete ignorance as to its period accuracy.

  8. Have you reviewed Outlander the TV show?

  9. I know you’ve said you don’t want to review documentaries, but I just finished “Code breaker” on Netflix, about Alan Turning. He was a genius who is credited with coming up with the very idea of computers, binary code, biological mathematics, and was a key member of the team that cracked the enigma machine in World War II. He should be as known to everyone as Einstein and Newton, but because he was homosexual, he was treated like total crap by Britain and never given the respect he deserved. I would love to hear your thoughts on this, and to know how accurate the documentary was. If it was accurate, then it truly breaks my heart that such a great man was treated in such a shameful way.

    • Have you read my columns on the Imitation Game? If not, you should.

      • Just read your column on “Imitation Game”, which I have never seen and knew little about. From everything you said, I’d say “Code Breaker” on Netflix has it pretty spot-on. I like Benedict Cumberbach, mostly as Sherlock Holmes, but I don’t think I’ll be seeing Imitation Game. I’d rather see Alan Turning’s story told accurately. As for his pardon, I guess it means something to some people, but 60 years after his death is pretty meaningless to me. Hope it atleast makes his living relatives happy.

      • Yeah, his pardon is more about symbolism and an admission that the government was wrong.

    My maiden name is Cummins which we are ancestors of John Comyn….I have trouble with John Comyn having rightful heir to the throne and Robert Bruce not ….although I love seeing anything on the subject…I feel like the Comyn’s got robbed because of John the Red being slain at the altar of Greyfriers church…Why wasn’t anything done to him for murdering someone in the church…I know they were all ruthless but don’t like seeing Robert the Bruce being a hero of Scotland when he played both sides…. just my thinking….
