I Love (Most) Historical Movies

The American Film Company who is working on a project I am particularly excited about, The Conspirator, posted this nifty little list of the best and worst historical portrayals in feature films. I definitely agree with their choices, especially with Colin Ferrell’s portrayal of John Smith in The New World. That movie was quite possibly the worst I have ever seen in my life.

More about The Conspirator: It’s about the trial of Mary Surratt after the Lincoln assignation. Surratt owned the boarding house where the conspirators plotted. Robin Wright plays Surratt and James McAvoy (sigh…drool…sigh) plays her lawyer Frederick Aiken. With Robert Redford directing, I honestly cannot wait to see this film.
