Film Reviews - Historical

Photobucket

Shannon's definition of Historical Films: Straight-up historical is a film genre which focuses on historical events, famous persons and/or are centred in a specific historical period (but not a real person or event). Biopics and war films are in by default under the umbrella of historical films. There is also a sub-genre of historical fantasy, which is historical-set fictional film with fantasy elements.

If you love Historical Film check out Episode 21 of the Movie Moxie Podcast where I take on Historical Films as a Genre, including favourites, new takes and debatable issues in the genre.
