2019.08.09 17:38 NinjaMilez If you like historic stuff... a.k.a NinjaMilez' Big List of Historic Film & T.V.
I wrote this a few days ago in response to a thread asking for shows similar to Vikings. Got a bit out of hand and I ended up spending a couple hours putting this thing together. I mean, did it all while at work so got fuckin' paid for it.Growing up I always loved historic movies. Could be anything. Medieval, Ancient Rome, Ancient Greece, vikings etc, with my favourite being Medieval. I would consume anything with f e r v e n t f e r v o u r.
Don't go calling us a karma whore as this post is only every going to get 20 upvotes, and that's being generous... so rather than just posting as is and being lazy, I'll make some additions and changes.
Vikings transports us to the brutal and mysterious world of Ragnar Lothbrok, a Viking warrior and farmer who yearns to explore - and raid - the distant shores across the ocean.I've not actually seen every season. I think I started watching it as season 2 was finishing, watched and enjoyed season 3 but never got around to season 4. It's now on season 6 and I don't think I'll go back to it again. Might re-watch seasons 1 to 3 at some point as I do remember enjoying those. I'm always wary of any series that goes past 3 seasons. With an exception to book-to-screen adaptations of FINISHED series (cough gameofthrones cough). Will stop ranting here as this isn't the sub for this sort of thing.
The Pillars of the Earth is about the building of a cathedral in the fictional town of Kingsbridge, England. It is set in the middle of the 12th century, primarily during the Anarchy, between the time of the sinking of the White Ship and the murder of Thomas Becket. The series traces the development of Gothic architecture out of the preceding Romanesque architecture, and the fortunes of the Kingsbridge priory and village against the backdrop of historical events of the time.Of the two this is the best. It isn't fantasy but is absolutely historic. Real world events of the time brilliantly intertwined with the characters and locations in the story. The characters are fictional obviously but feel like they could have existed. I've described it before as Game of Thrones (the early seasons), on a much smaller scale and without any magic/dragons/fantasy. One of my favourites - easily top 3. Very political but also has action. Of all recommendations, this is my favourite (along with Kingdom of Heaven in the Movies section).
World Without End is set 150 years after The Pillars of the Earth and chronicles the experiences of the English town of Kingsbridge during the start of the Hundred Years' War and the outbreak of the Black Death.If you like The Pillars of the Earth then World Without End is more of the same. When I said it's not as good it doesn't mean it's bad. I just prefer The Pillars of the Earth. I think I've only watched it once so I do need to go through it again as my opinion has probably changed.
After 5 years of fighting in the crusades, Robin returns to England and leads a band of outlaws to outwit the Sheriff of Nottingham.This is definitely one of the most lighthearted recommendations in this list (the other being the one below this). Same kind of feel as Dr Who. Lots of likeable and colourful characters. It was on the BBC and broadcast around 7:00 PM which is pre-watershed so as you can imagine there's basically no gratuitous violence. I don't remember Vikings being gratuitous either but there is definitely more in that series over Robin Hood. It's a good series and only lasted three seasons but doesn't outstay its welcome. The story that was meant to be told was told and they didn't try and milk it dry. Apparently it was planned to go on after season 3 but some of the actors didn't want to come back. The ending is satisfying though. This was one of the first ever shows that I looked forward to watching every week. Dunno what you're going to do with that information but there it is I guess...
These are the brand new adventures of Merlin, the legendary sorcerer as a young man, when he was just a servant to young Prince Arthur on the royal court of Camelot, who has soon become his best friend, and turned Arthur into a great king and a legend.Only watch this if you watch Robin Hood and enjoyed it because this is the same sort of thing but isn't quite as good in my opinion. Ran for five seasons which I think was too many. A few filler episodes here and there and some episodes after season 3 follow the same sort of thing and can feel a bit repetitive which is why I say only to watch it if you liked Robin Hood because it has the same feel as that show. Neither Robin Hood, nor Merlin are incredible pieces of television, if you like watching this kind of stuff then you might enjoy these.
Inspired by the historical figure of Spartacus, a Thracian gladiator who from 73 to 71 BC led a major slave uprising against the Roman Republic.Way more action oriented. VERY graphic. Blood, gore, sex and nudity of both sexes (sometimes all at once). Game of Thrones was not the first series to go all out with this stuff. Went even further in the first season than Game of Thrones did in eight! It's a fun watch, but not particularly deep. There's a prequel series, then another three series set after Blood and Sand. DO NOT WATCH THE PREQUEL FIRST! It will spoil the end of the first series in its introductory 'flash-forward' scene. The correct viewing order is by release date:
When King Uther dies and Britain faces chaos, Merlin presents an unknown named Arthur as the new king by birthright, as the late king's son, against the ambitious desires of his half-sister, Morgan.If you like this kind of thing then watch it but it's not anything to shout home about. I wish it could've been better. Has a really great cast: Eva Green, James Purefoy (great actor) and Joseph Finnes. Another Arthurian Legend series like Merlin except it's more mature. It's like if Merlin was broadcast at 10:00PM then it would be like Camelot. Only lasted one season but the ending was setup like it was meant to continue. I tried to watch this again about a year ago but couldn't get back into it.
Follows Leonardo Da Vinci during his early days in Florence, as a young artist, inventor and dreamer, trying to change the future.It's alright. First season is probably the best, the second is fun too, but the last series is a letdown. Again, if you like this sort of thing check out the first couple of episodes and make your mind up. The cast is really good but it's let down by the story in the last season though.
Set during the Crusades of the 12th century. A French village blacksmith goes to the aid of the Kingdom of Jerusalem in its defence against the Ayyubid Muslim Sultan, Saladin, who is fighting to claim the city from the Christians; this leads to the Battle of Hattin. The film is a heavily fictionalised portrayal of the life of Balian of Ibelin (ca. 1143–93).This is my favourite historical movie of all time. Gladiator is considered the superior movie by Ridley Scott but I prefer this. I know Gladiator is a great piece of cinema but it does bore me in parts. This film however I like all the way through and have seen it far more often. Critics on RottenTomatoes seem to just fucking hate Orlando Bloom. Fuck them, he's fine in this film. There's a three-hour directors cut. Has everything I love. Sieges, sword fights, dudes being honourable, dudes being dishonourable, people getting their dues. Has a slew of great and notable actors: Orlando Bloom, Liam Neeson, Jeremy Irons, Eva Green, David Thewlis, Edward Norton. I fucking love this film! My favourite of all time perhaps, and that's going up against The Lord of the Rings! Another bit of personal trivia for you: this movie was actually on UMD for the PSP which was how I watched it for the first time.
In 12th century England, Robin and his band of marauders confront corruption in a local village and lead an uprising against the crown that will forever alter the balance of world power.Another Ridley Scott film starring Russel Crowe. I enjoy it at lot but isn't considered to be very good. Has more humour in it than Gladiator and Kingdom of Heaven. I don't really have anything else to say about this. Rise and rise again, until lambs become lions... - Love all that shit.
King Leonidas of Sparta and a force of 300 men fight the Persians at Thermopylae in 480 B.C.Another obvious choice - Here's another bit of trivia for you. Does anyone remember those parody movies from the mid-2000s like Epic Movie? One of them was Meet the Spartans which was a pisstake of 300. I saw Meet the Spartans before I saw 300. I know right.
A demystified take on the tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.Love it or hate it kind of film. I'm not a fan, though.
An adaptation of Homer's great epic, the film follows the assault on Troy by the united Greek forces and chronicles the fates of the men involved.Guilty pleasure of mine. It's quite good. Also naked Diane Kruger...
An affair between the second in line to Britain's throne and the princess of the feuding Irish spells doom for the young lovers.Sort of Romeo and Juliet if it was set in the Dark Ages. Stars James Franco and Rufus Sewell. It's actually pretty good!
Set during the time of the first outbreak of bubonic plague in England, a young monk is given the task of learning the truth about reports of people being brought back to life in a small village.I've only seen it once and can't remember if it's any good. Stars Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Carice van Houten (Melissandre in Game of Thrones).
Forced for some time to be a fighting slave, a pagan warrior escapes his captors with a boy and joins a group of Crusaders on their quest to the Holy Land.Very different from the others. Quite slow and has very little dialogue. I need to watch it again.
In thirteenth century England, a Knights Templar and few of the Barons men, fight to defend Rochester Castle against the tyrannical King John.Bit of a trend with these recommendations: it's another 'I like it but it's not very good'. I do really like it, mainly because of James Purefoy. Another guilty pleasure.
A mini-series of adaptations of Shakespeare's history plays: Richard II, Henry IV Parts 1 and 2, and Henry V.
As Alfred the Great defends his kingdom from Norse invaders, Uhtred - born a Saxon but raised by Vikings - seeks to claim his ancestral birthright.
A look at the final days of the Knights Templar during the 14th century.
A down-to-earth account of the lives of both illustrious and ordinary Romans set in the last days of the Roman Republic.There are probably some that I've missed. I was mainly pulling these from my 'To Watch and To Buy' spreadsheet. You can find that here if you want to check it out. You'll notice that all of these films are relatively recent. I've not included any older historic films as I've not really seen any. Please suggest anything you think I might like, old and new.
