Major Motion Pictures

This page is for the big ancient world films. You know the ones I mean - those films that you automatically think of when you hear 'ancient Rome' or 'ancient Greece'. The classics. And the not-so-classics. Lots of Roman history, lots of Greek mythology, but more rarely vice versa, for reasons known only to filmmakers. All (well, a representative sample anyway) dissected, nit-picked and reviewed here. If you can't see the one you're looking for, feel free to suggest it in the comments! I can't promise instant reviews, as I have a finite DVD collection, limited time and no money, but I'll do my best.
