You must have misread my post or the article. Is English your first language ?Babe, your link pretty much agrees with me. Is there something else ?You have to be a moron if you consider a movie to be history. You can see aspects of history in a film but back in real life history is far too disjointed to be packaged into a 2 hour film.
Im sure that there are films which are historically accurate but I am struggling to think of one at the moment.
But if you want a left of centre movie about US involvement in other countries I suggest Missing with Jack Lemmon. Its a great movie that shows the contrast between decent Americans and their less than decent government.
But is it history ?
"You have to be a moron if you consider a movie to be history."
Speaking of morons, lots of same take their 'knowledge' of history from films, Comedy Central, CNN.....
They are called Democrat voters.
"The allure of history moviesFact-based or fictional, realistic or fantastic, history movies shape the way people think about the past. In a study of how 15 families discussed historical understanding of the Vietnam War era, kids and parents both spontaneously drew on memories of movies. “Forrest Gump,” in particular, was referenced by both generations."
History movies may have Oscar potential, but their educational potential is more complicated. Should teachers use Hollywood to teach?theconversation.com
In your face, boooooooooyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!
'Wrong' appears to by your métier.
