12.15am – I’ll type up the review in the morning, bit tired at the moment. However, I can say that it is a very good film and I advise you all to watch it.
5.44pm – Sorry if none of this makes sense or means nothing to you but I’m pretty down at the moment, sorry.
I love the love story.
Funny gladiator school owner, glad he won an Oscar. “What? Wait a minute. Crassus here? Varinia, my red toga with the acorns. And some chairs in the atrium. Second-best wine. No, the best, but small goblets.”
Love the gorgeous female costumes.
Laughed that the women chose the cutest gladiators to fight.
The accents are weird, some are American, others are English, its just confusing.
Very tanned men. VERY tanned.
Tony Curtis is looooovely in this movie.
This movie has the original upside-down kiss.
If you want a movie that has very little costumes and a whole lot of man-thigh/legs… this is your movie.
The crowd/battle scenes are amazing because you know its not CGI and that there are actually that many extras on the field.
The dead baby totally broke me but then my spirits lifted when I saw one of the surviving babies and how adorable he was when he mum was cheeky and squirted goat milk in his face.
The dead bodies are horrible, it really puts the whole battle into perspective.
The ending is heartbreaking, hopeful, joyful and annoying. Made me cry like a baby, it was beautiful and so sad.
Sorry, crap review but it is a very good film and I think you should all rent it.
