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

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"

"Katsottu: 13.10.2012 Helvetin tyhmä idea, josta saan vain syyttää omaa tyhmyyttäni. Tämmöinen pornoeepos täytyy ehdottomasti katsoa krapulassa, että siitä saa maksimaalisen nautinnon. Olihan tässä tosin ihan komeaa surrealistista lavastusta, McDowell helvetin kovassa vedossa ja paljon häiriintynyttä katsottavaa. Laatta meinasi silti lentää siinä vaiheessa, kun kurkkuharja alkoi käryttää pizzaansa keittiössä ja taustalla oli jäätävän pitkä mulkunimeskelykohtaus menossa."

" The Untruth: In the history of the western world no screaming oddball has endured like Caligula. Malcolm McDowell is the lunatic Emperor who at one point forces his army to attack the sea. The Truth: The sea attack did happen, but historians have argued that Caligula was being satirical. No one’s that mad. It was a statement about war. Or something."

Movie Journal - April 2012 (30 movies items)

"Date: 2. April - First Time Watch - I've never seen a film like this, which is both a historic drama and a shameless porno. While it is a porn a couple of times, I still think it's a well-made movie with some fantastic acting. The music and the sets are beautiful, but if it hadn't been for some of the unnecessary and pointless porn bits, I would've rated it higher. "
