Are you not entertained? If so, feel free to leave us a 5* review - but we digress. Join your favourite Transatlantic podcasting duo - Ian & Liam - to review our second Best Picture winner to date in Ridley Scott's 2000 Roman war epic, Gladiator.  We're joined once again by our permaguests, Ellie & Georgia to discuss the movie that single-handedly revived the 'sword & sandles genre.  It's a 12th episode full of strength & honour as we discuss:

  • Just how problematic was the writing process for this film?
  • Which actor refused to learn his new dialogue
  • Who on the cast begged Russell Crowe to rough him up before big scenes
  • Which piece of the score seemingly showed up in another box office smash just years later
  • Who on the cast the producers counted on as an expert to preserve historical authenticity
  • Who was the first choice for Maximus?
  • If "Gladiator is the Best Film Ever?
