    Re-watching it right now. It's pretty good, honestly. I think it would really benefit with big theater screen. Give that larger than life feel.
    It's classic Ridley Scott, and I think he has become hit or miss recently. Dont know why people dont like it. Maybe they just dont feel for the characters?

      Because they cast a guy who looks 60 to play roughly 25 years of a man’s life who died when he was 51. Instead of playing up his positive aspects and portraying him as a great man they just made him a fricking weirdo. It’s okay for movies like these to be a bit of a power fantasy. The best scene in the movie by far is the first battle scene where he takes the fort.

        I preferred his crushing of the Prussian army, maneuvering them onto the lake then smashing the ice under them. Seeing the infantry and horse charges are wonderful and the point of such movies to me.

              It sucks because the shit he changed is for the worse. His movie would have been better because it would have filmed cooler scenes in a cooler way if it was historically accurate. So now all it's doing is reminding me of all this better material they decided not to use.

                Pfft, why? Marketing is about money, not about reception.
                So you got duped by the marketing, and you think that was unfair because you dont think marketing's job is to dupe as many people as possible.

                There's already more than enough bias in what a historical epic chooses to focus on, because obviously you can't even come close to giving every aspect of the real events fair coverage in a 2-3 hour movie, so just making shit up on top of that is completely superfluous. Nobody's donutsteel fanfiction is gonna be better than what really happened, especially when you already have so much to pick and choose from. It's not like Troy where the only source is an ancient poem about gods and shit, it's an extremely well documented period.

                Which is why getting mad that some Brit shit on him - and because MUH MARKETING wasnt truthful - is silly. It is trivially easy to go find out the truth and find accurate portrayals if that is what you want.
                I want Scott's eye for set and costumes and spectacle, and I found his pissing on Napoleon funny, and the things I wanted well done.
                As I said - was surprisingly average as the acting was not there and the moments meant to be fast often dragged. Usually Scott is either really good or total shit.

                There's historical canon and interpretations that you shouldnt' frick with.
                Gladiator being a badass and Aurelius being a wise old man? that needs to be on film. reinterpreting the events is ok as long as you don't frick with the idea or spirit of the tale.

                Trying to make a movie where Alexander the Great is a wienersucking gay who cries over his boyfriend is just wrong.
                making Napoleon a b***h just looks like pathetic Anglo seething

                It's ok to have a nuanced or even subversive film of a character...but It should be done in good taste or be honest that it's a parody, like the death of stalin.

                >is just wrong.

                If you like fanfiction then alright. I'm alright with changes like side-characters being merged for simplicity and so on, obviously a movie has limitations, but fundamentally changing the subject of the film and then still playing everything else with regards to the real events completely straight just feels incongruous and dishonest to me.

    It's an ahistorical hit piece written by english boomers trying to make fun of a historic rival they disliked.

    Literally nothing in the entire film was accurate, from Napoleon's personality, age, attitude or aptitude for war. or any characters...or any details of the battles. Most scenes were just to paint napoleon in the worst way possible, or to just be pure bullshit that never happened, like the part wherre the pyramids were shot at by a canon.

    The only people defending/liking the film are Americans who don't know history and just enjoy mindless spectacle. and the English who somehow hold onto 200 year grudges as a joke.

    All I can personally say, is that my opinion on the Engurlish has changed.
    On one hand, I hate historically inaccurate shit like netflix's Cleopatra...on the other hand, making a 2 hour hitpiece on your neighboring country's historical icon for no reason other than to make him look like a whimpy gay is...dare I say...very based

    Austerlitz battle was great, but the ones after felt meh. Story kind of sacked after the Russia bit.
    I get that some people expected him to be more of a chad when it came to women, but he was a bit of a cuck, some of the deliveries almost seemed comedic in a sense such as the luring noises to let Josephine know he wanted sex, or the whole "between my legs is a present" or the "They cried less, which made them considerably more attractive". It all played kind of save and on one tone and pace and after a while that kind of burns you out.

    Nothing is conveyed about Napoleon through this movie other than he's an autist. Literally nothing else. No context, no insights, no struggles, nothing.
    Same thing consequently with Josephine. She just exists so that Napoleon's autismo stuff bounces of her in a few scenes and that's that. Nothing else is conveyed about her whatsoever.

    Same with the battles, the political context is entirely missing, characters pop in and out with no context just to, again, be there for Napoleon to bounce his autismo stuff off of.... just a big nothing.
