not a lot of good ones out there honestly best I can think of is Troy the stories are fascinating but there's not a lot of detail not enough to make good movies out of them just reading about the stories on the internet would probably be better

Honestly, the original iliad and troy is very different. It's surprisingly not very accurate.

yeah thats why i said its the best i can think of not necessarily a very interesting or good movie but better than crap like clash of titans best to read the actual stories on the internet or percy jackson books ( not movies ) if you're on the younger side, can be both entertaining and informative

If you're looking for books, Stephen Fry has a great trilogy on Greek mythology: The first book, "Mythos", talks about the gods, and the creation of humanity etc. The second book, "Heroes", is about the great heroes and other important humans in Greek mythology(Heracles, Perseus, Theseus etc.) The third and final book, "Troy", is all about the Trojan War, as well as the lead-up and aftermath. Would highly recommend the entire trilogy, Stephen Fry is an incredible writer

Troy was great but it was a story by a writer. Imagine if we all died and some civ came back and found a starwars book and translated it. Most people don't get they had plays and famous writers back then just like we do now but everything they find they take as fact. I would say they were the best writers in history. Movies being made about their stories today, only writer that beats that is the dude that wrote the bible.

Taking a wild guess , all religions and Gods were created by man. Look at Scientology we are witnessing a new main stream religion being built in our lifetime.

Ehhh yeah? The bible itself says that it's an interpretation of jesus' words (New Testament). It's primarily written by his disciples. And all humans are flawed thus the bible is also flawed. It admits it itself. The Quran is written only by Allah for comparison (Or i guess the prophet under allah's control)

No the bible does not admit its flawed. In 2 Timothy 3:16, Paul states, “All Scripture is God-breathed".

It doesn't state that "The bible is no good" but it's underlined that it's only meant to be interpreted, or that's atleast my and many others interpretation. I know the "god-breathed" debate quite well, because no one really knows what it exactly is supposed to mean.

Well the bible is definitely supposed to be taken as real events.

According to who? The bible is littered with metaphors and what is and what isn't real is hard to say.

The old testament is describing wars and events that happened, bloodlines and kings. Events = supposed to be real. Ofc there are metaphors but that doesn't take away that events are supposed to have happened.

We know that scientifically some of the events in the bible did happen but they are exaggerated. Like Noahs arc, never happened obviously but there was a large flood in Israel around that time. That's my point.
2021-09-28 12:53
Jesus might be the most real God. I think he could have been the first magician, his disciples were helping him pull it off. All jokes aside, all Gods were created by man for control and money, look at the Vatican. They might be worth 1 trillion.All Gods love the money! Even though they could just print their own.
2021-09-28 12:32
no movies being made cause stories from that time are rare and special of course illiad is well written but it wouldnt be a literary masterpiece if written today

All Greek mythology is the coolest stuff.Why do our created Gods suck so much, theirs had huge stories behind them. I got a carpenter. WTF? I want ZEUS! only thing Jesus did was walk on water, turn water in to wine, get drunk with his friends and bang the town whore. Zues could toss lightning bolts. Thinking Jesus and his crew were con artists.

i mean zeus did fuck everyone's wives not sure you would have liked that person in your life, no matter how cool it sounds in fantasy greeks wrote their gods to be powerful, but not morally correct current day gods are sort of moral/spiritual leaders rather than wild forces of nature

Nobody has ever met a God :) They say jesus was the son of God, gets killed. Guess his dad hated him. Did he die for our sins if he was doing the town whore? I've never done a hooker yet.

Life of Brian, albeit a satire/comedy pretty accurately shows how gods and religions esp christianity might have come into being in those days

Heard they might make a Gladiator 2. Watched the gladiator like 5 times. Just to wonder what it was like living back in those times and seeing Rome. They were so advanced. We lost maybe 1000 or more years of tech after they vanished. The next dark ages I don't think we will ever recover from, just have Japan and Iceland as the last two stronholds until the horde figures out how to use the nukes ,fly the planes and stuff. God did say the meek shall inherit the earth. Not a good thing.

Idk if you know this but gladiator is kind of infamous for not being historically accurate

Not his personal battles but say it's pretty accurate of how people lived back then. We know the Romans tech because much of it is still standing. We know they were very skilled at war because of all the territories they conquered.

Meh, it's kind of all over the place. The story about Maximus being chosen first is not true. The gladiator battles are actually really unsportsmanlike and a lot smaller then they really where. The ending of the story is not accurate. Also, the way they fight in the film is also not accurate.

What blows my mind is that we never built another stadium in our time until over 1000 years later. I keep saying, ohh it's only 1000 years but imagine our tech if we don't lose it in 1000 more years. That's a lot of time. We can't even imagine it.
