Let’s face it, we all love movies based on true stories. Sure, the word “based” and “true” are more often than not used with a lot of artistic licence. While some movies stick absolutely to the true story, some “base” them so loosely on the truth that the only thing they get right about William Wallace is the fact that he was Scottish.
Speaking of far-stretched true story films, here’s a look at three of the most ridiculous “true story” films of all time. OR you can check out the list of the best true story films right here.
Three of the most ridiculous “True Story” films ever
3. Gladiator: All right, fine, so Gladiator’s an awesome film and gets away with most stuff. It’s still failed history though. To start off with, the movie turns Commodus’ 13 year reign into 2 years, then there’s the fact that Commodus was younger than depicted (and a lot fitter), and the idea of him wanting to commit patricide is absurd and has no historical basis whatsoever.

My Favourite Les Miserables Quotes on Life, Love and More
The trait of a truly great movie is to be able to be watched purely for fun, while also presenting meaningful meditations on life. I remember at acting school being told that it’s what a viewer takes away with them that matters, the inspiration they receive long after the actual movie is finished. I’m sure something similar is said at film school.
With Star Wars, we get moments of pure, light-hearted family entertainment (like those moments featuring R2-“d and C3PO) mixed with moments that make the film look like a masters degree in philosophy, moments of insight and inspiration that last forever.
It’s the second part of Star Wars, the philosophy, we’re looking at here, as we present the philosophy of Yoda in quotes.
Yoda Quote 1: A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind.

Why Star Wars is One of the Best Movies for Kids of All Time
First off, the characters. The characters of Star Wars are based on Jungian analytical psychology theories, but heck, you don’t need a degree in psychology to appreciate them. Simply put, every major character in Star Wars really represents something. From the greedy powerful Emperor to Luke, the man who was just a boy living on a farm in Tatooine who followed his dream to become a hero and save the galaxy, to the independent smuggler Han Solo; everyone in Star Wars means something, and they all inspire audiences in their own way.

Continuing our coverage of the best movies for kids, we now come to Labyrinth, Toy Story and The Lion King.
Best Movies For Kids -- Labyrinth
Jim Henson / George Lucas’ Labyrinth is one of the most memorable fantasy movies of all time. It tells of fifteen year old Sarah, who inadvertently wishes for Toby, her half-brother, to be taken away to the Goblin King Jareth, with whom Toby will stay unless Sarah can complete the Labyrinth in 13 hours.
You can likely tell from that introduction that Labyrinth carried the message “be careful what you wish for,” but it also does a lot more than that.
Sarah is a strong female character who is a good role model for kids and particularly girls. Sarah leads young viewers through lessons about growing up and about facing your fears through the power of the mind.

Continuing our list of the best movies for children we now come to The Neverending Story, a movie packed full of valuable life lessons including dealing with bereavement, finding personal courage and facing fears.
Why The Neverending Story is one of the best movies for kids
The Neverending Story is one of the most unique movies of all time. I can remember perfectly the first time I saw The Neverending Story. I can remember crying my eyes out when the horse Artax dies in the swamp of sadness. I remember the numerous ways in which The Neverending Story inspired me.;
The Neverending Story covers a wide range of important issues. The issues range from bullying to mental health issues to bereavement, to love, to courage and personal bravery. The Neverending Story is literally packed full of positive psychology.
Here’s the really sad death of Artax in The Neverending Story.
Clearly, this is an extremely sad scene, yet it is also an extremely important scene and especially for Read more [...]
The Best Movies For Children : The Neverending Story
I thought I was a fan of Disney and Toy Story, but I’ve been put to shame by two high school students from Arizona who have reproduced the first Toy Story movie in its entirety in their own bedrooms.
It took the two teenagers years of hard work to produce this 120 minute long live-action version of Disney-Pixar’s Toy Story. To do it, they had to transform their own bedrooms into replicas of the scenes from Toy Story
Pixar have yet to comment on the film, but it’s already got more than 1.5 MILLION Youtube views and 1,000 Facebook likes.
Pauley, one of the film’s producers, stated, “After seeing ‘Toy Story,’ I started playing with my toys differently,” he said. “I really made them alive.”

Irish Director Lenny Abrahamson Show His Brilliance in What Richard Did
If originality and creativity are to be praised, then Irish director Lenny Abrahamson deserves rapturous applaus for his first three major productions: they all look completely different. Where many directors seem to like to stick to one type of film, Abrahamson is more interested in pushing himself and creating a genuinely unique peace of work each time he directs.
The latest of his works is What Richard Did, a complex drama written by Malcolm Campbell and starring Jack Reynor, Sam Keeley and Roisin Murphy. The story is about Richard, a teenage male played by Jack Reynor. Richard is an over-achiever and a rugby star schoolboy. Everywhere he goes he gets the adoration of the girls, he has parties and present himself as a celebrity. It’s the dream lifestyle, at least until he falls for Roisin Murphy, the girlfriend of his fellow teammate Conor (Sam Keeley).
What Richard Did is an intelligent drama that Read more [...]

Ruben Fleischer’s work was never really regarded for its maturity nor its earnestness. Before Gangster Squad the Washington-born director had mostly worked on cheesy comedies like Zombieland and 30 Minutes or Less. Now, Fleischer has made a move to further his career and launch him into a more serious directorial landscape with this, his first really mature movie, Gangster Squad.
Gangster Squad Review
Gangster Squad is based on a true story about a group of incorruptible cops up against a mobster in Brooklyn in Los Angeles in the 1940s. It stars Sean Penn as Mickey Cohen, the creepy and evil mobster. Sean Penn plays the role with a lot of hamm behind a lot of prosthetics. Truth be told its not a particularly notable performance than Penn puts in.
Sean Penn as Mickey Cohen in Gangster Squad
The film itself matches Penn’s performance: it’s entertaining but shallow. There’s a great deal of violence, though the movie does focus on the good guys rather than the bad.

The musical version of Les Miserables and Victor Hugo’s original novel on which its based have wowed audience and readers for years, telling, very emotionally, the story of the anti-monarchist Paris uprising of 1832. Even non-musical lovers, its impossible not to recognise the brilliance of Les Miserables on stage and the same is true for Tom Hooper’s films, which stars Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman. There’s just something about Les Miserables that demands it to be watched.
How could Les Miserables possibly fail? It stars truly exceptional performers in Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe and company. It’s directed by The King’s Speech’s Tom Cooper, and it’s Lay Mis.

Les Miserables Review–Hugh Jackman headed For OSCAR Win
I’m calling it: this is the best and funniest short film you will watch this month, if not this year. Catnip: Egress to Oblivion is a hilarious mockumentary about the dangers of catnip. Sure, we all love sniffing and licking some nip, but is it worth it, or are the dangers all too real?

Star Trek into Darkness director JJ Abrams has made a dying fan’s wish come true by allowing him to watch Star Trek Into Darkness months before its release.
It was Christmas day when Reddit user iddeyut (Grady Hendrix) made a wish via reddit for his friend Dan, a 41 year old cancer sufferer, to be able to see Star Trek Into Darkness. Knowing that his friend had just weeks to live, he had bough a ticket to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey simply to catch the 10 minute preview to Stark Trek Into Darkness. That day, Dan was sent to hospital, meaning he missed the preview.
Spreading online, the story of Dan and Grady reached Paramount and JJ Abrams, who naturally wanted to do all they could to help Dan. They set up a private viewing for the cancer sufferer and his wife and they watched the film on Sunday.
It speaks much about Paramount and Bad Robot that they opted not to make a big thing about the screening. Rather. Dan’s wife sent the following message Read more [...]
