Do you remember when Braveheart came out, and everyone was going on about how great it was? Were they simpler times do you reckon, or were we just blinded by the gore?
I ask the question because now I really can’t watch that film at all without thinking how shite it is. I can still enjoy it on some level, but I don’t think I’ve sat through the entire film in quite a while. Even when it was the telly a short while ago and there was nothing else on at all, I still spent most of my time station hopping.
Wallace senior: Let’s fight the English!
Fellow Scots: Umh, ahâ€¦ you know, we’re farmersâ€¦ all the noblemen were killed at the meeting!
fourth_rose: Then who’s Robert the Bruce, pray?
cutecoati: And since when are the Wallaces farmers? Lower gentry, okay, but farmers?
Wallace senior: We don’t have to beat them, just fight them.
cutecoati: Now that’s what I call a strategist!
fourth_rose: And look, they got their swords hidden under the roofs of their cottages!
cutecoati: Thank God it never rains in Scotland
cutecoati:: Wait, let me at least get the timelines straight (no, that was not intended as a pun). William Wallace was born in the 1270s and died in 1305. Edward II was born in 1284 and married Isabelle in 1308 when he was already king and Wallace was dead!
 – mainly the “all Sasanach are bastard’s” level, but that’s only good for 5 minutes before it gets old. Cause everyone knows that you English peoples are evil and love nothing more than gore and blood and torture. What do you mean that’s only true in Mel Gibon films? (back)
