Unfortunately I don't know why more movies can't be historically accurate.
I see the world Lucius Hunt, just not the way you see it.

It depends on the writer/director.  They don't like to bring everything from the story.  For example, PUBLIC ENEMIES - the book is accurate and it gives your more information on John Dillinger in that era. The book also covers Bonny And Clyde's story and they won't bring eveything except the main points of the story that are good to bring on the screen.  Their whole point is to enterain.

I'm talking about when they add in stuff that wasn't there.

It falls in the same category when I explained it.  For example, if you watch KINGDOM OF HEAVEN they use FIRE balls destroying the palace. In the making they said that at that era and in the specific war they never used fire. Only arrows, swords, knives.

Not every movie is a documentary.  :P
See the villain's larger eyes insinuating a just-off-normal perspective on how they see the world? I see signs Lucius Hunt; just not as you see dead people. I am so very happy we saw..each other, and no I will not tell you what color love is. Stop asking.

I know that, but I'm talking about more major stuff, like in Defiance, the whole big fight at the end never happened, and the movie would have been fine without it.  Stuff like the fireballs in Kingdom of Heaven didn't bother me.

I see your point. They will always make it hollywoodish - no matter what.

Yep. As long as they make it good I don't mind.

I've seen it for the 2nd time and I liked it a bit more.The action sequences are still great,of course,but now I also liked the way the story is told,so particular and different from other gangster-movies.Well done.

Thankfully, I didn't study history by watching ficticious movies, and no one else should either.

History becomes important sometimes in my opinion. - Don't think hard cause I am dreaming.  ;D
