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

“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 Anthony Mann but he was fired by Douglas who then hired Stanley Kubrick but they didn’t get along either and Douglas swore he would never work again with Kubrick. This movie was also the first and last time Kubrick made what you call a 'standard' big budget studio feature without full control (as a matter of fact, After 'Spartacus', Kubrick always kept full control over all the aspects of his fil” read more

Movie Reviews (part 13) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: The best of the best of British actors playing the Roman elite. Massive use of extras that make the film look impressive. "I am Spartacus" - one of the memorable movie quotes and scenes of all time. It was restored in 1991 to it's uncut glory. It has a good story and a deep meaning. The Downs: It is not for the fans of the Starz' TV-series where T&A and extreme gore was one of the necessary additions. Some of the romance scenes are a bit on the long side and it could probably have nee"
