INTOLERANCE (1916)

Maybe the first big blockbuster, somehow still leaving viewers flabbergasted a century later. Also one long missive about “cancel culture,,” basically.

RYAN’S DAUGHTER (1970)

Lots of beautiful Irish locations can’t save a movie that is incredibly long for the amount of story it has and includes a series of truly awful performances.

GLADIATOR (2000)

A big old sword and sandals epic that revived the genre and became a personal favorite of mine.
