Caligula is one hell of a porn film, above any other label. Of course orgies were a common thing in ancient Rome, and in a lot more civilizations by then, and so there's absolutely no reason to produce any other, far from the truth, prudish depiction of the Roman living like Hollywood got people used to. And yes, the added sex scenes are a bit too excessive, too extravagant and too perverse, and t... read more

One of the greatest reviews ever written in capital letters. You really are a great reviewer of such a shitty film. That is all.

"March, 2nd. - I'm far from being a prude. I do understand the historical importance and the value of this film but it just didn't do it for me. It looks very cheap and exaggerated in many aspects. Theatrical but border lining being a low budget porn movie that tries hard to have a plot or theme."

EW's 25 Most Controversial Movies (25 movies items)

"THE PLOT This lavishly decadent film depicts the orgy-filled life and death of ancient Rome's most notorious — and clearly psychotic — emperor (Malcolm McDowell). THE CONTROVERSY Described as a ''moral holocaust'' by Variety, the film was first given a very limited theatrical release for fear of prosecution on obscenity grounds."

Movie Reviews (part 6) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: It is extremly perverse and probably historic correct as well in its detailed descriptions of incest, beheadings, orgies and homosexuality. Malcolm McDowell is perfectly insane as the emperor. Teresa Ann Savoy is gorgeous. Insane sets and great intense sex. The Downs: Peter O'Toole is obvious drunk in the movie. The editing is all over the floor. "

"For sheer camp RBI, this Tinto Brass-Bob Guccione freak is the World Series played, won, and paraded. - Michael Atkinson, Village Voice But in its thoroughly remarkable badness it's actually kind of fascinating...the perfect movie for at do-it-yourself Mystery Science Theatre 3000 afternoon. - Sarah Boslaugh, Playback:stl Such established names as John Gielgud and Peter O'Toole will have to be seen to be believed. - Variety Staff, Variety Caligula is sickening, utterly worthless, shameful "

Two Thumbs Up For Siskel & Ebert! (10 movies items)

" Roger Ebert: The human being is a most curious animal. Often ready to indulge himself in his base Inclinations, but frequently reluctant to trust his better Instincts." Surely people know, going in, that "Caligula" is worthless. Surely they know there are other movies in town that are infinitely better. Yet here they are at "Caligula." It is very sad. People learn fast. "This movie," said the lady in front of me at the drinking fountain, "is the worst piece of shit I have ever seen." Roger E"

An average movie

“Like most of the viewers, it is its infamous reputation that made me watched this flick. Basically, I just wanted to check it out if it was as bad and/or as shocking as everybody was thinking. Eventually, it might sound weird, but I don’t think it was that bad at all. Indeed, since this movie dealt with Caligula, the most decadent Roman emperor, I thought this movie eventually fit the man quite well. Indeed, the main character was just despicable, mad, tyrannical, and indeed, you had a few hardcore sex scenes here and there but it didn’t really bother me. As a matter of fact, it might sound odd but I think those scenes made the movie even more surreal. I’m not saying that those inserts were a good idea but I don’t think they really ruined the movie. Basically, it was pretty much li” read more

"13.10 Blu-ray Patsastelua ja pornoilua koko elokuva, mutta annettu kuva ajasta ja päähenkilöstä on kuitenkin mielenkiintoinen kaikessa likaisuudessaan, ja tämä näyttää oikeastaan ihan hienolta. McDowell on myös mainio, joten sanoisinkin että kyseessä on enemmänkin liian tylsä, kuin erityisen paska elokuva."

My movie year 2012 (703 movies items)

"Blu-ray (miitti) Re-watchi ei muuta miellekuvia Caligulasta. Historiallisesti kiinnostavaa pukukauhudraamaa, jota voi kehua juuri extreme-elvismäisestä lähestymistavasta, mutta jonka kuplan Guccionen Bob Caligulan hääkohtaustakin tuimemmin puhkaisee. Kaksi ja puoli tuntia, josta aiheeseen kuulumatonta tai tarinaan liittymätöntä pornoa on aika sairas määrä? Kiitos mutta ei kiitos. Shokeerauskin menee jo vähän liian pitkälle - oli Caligula miten sairas heppu hyvänsä, tuskin tämä"
