Secular Roman epic!

"And maybe there's no peace in this world, for us or for anyone else, I don't know. But I do know that, as long as we live, we must remain true to ourselves."

One of the most quintessential swords-and-sandals epics of all time, Spartacus is a stirring and passionate historical saga chronicling the military career of an indomitable gladiator who commanded a Roman slave revolt. This i... read more

Kubrick's epic classic!

Spartacus was released at a time where epic costume dramas began to take shape and become very popular. I mean, nowadays we see these history costume dramas time and time again but they really don't feel the same or even as realistic as the classic ones do. Obviously, this was in Kubrick's early days of his career and because pretty much all of the films that were released after Spartacus turned o... read more

I always find it rather amusing when people tell me that they find 'Gladiator' totally awesome. Do they know that the Peplum is actually one of the oldest genres in cinema and that 'Gladiator' is merely a reboot? Anyway, this movie was probably the least personal project for Stanley Kubrick as he was hired at the last minute by Kirk Douglas. Indeed, the whole thing was supposed to be directed by A... read more

Description: The rebellious Thracian Spartacus, born and raised a slave, is sold to Gladiator trainer Batiatus. After weeks of being trained to kill for the arena, Spartacus turns on his owners and leads the other slaves in rebellion. As the rebels move from town to town, their numbers swell as escaped slaves join their ranks. Under the leadership of Spartacus, they make their way to southern Italy, where they will cross the sea and return to their homes. Meanwhile, in Rome, the slave revolt has become a deciding factor in the power struggle between two senators: the republican Gracchus and the militarist Crassus, each of whom sees the fortu ...

20 Classic Films Not Nominated For Best Picture (20 movies items)

"Subject of probably the most egregious Oscar oversight of all time (he never won Best Director), Stanley Kubrick was also overlooked in other areas, too — again a fact that reflects more poorly on Hollywood than on the director's many masterpieces. But it feels like he was unluckiest to miss out on a Best Picture nod specifically, with "Spartacus" the film of his that seems on paper like the one most likely to be embraced even by a body as conservative as the Academy. More classical, less expe"
