"Braveheart"

Let's not forget that they did the battle of Stirling Bridge without the bridge.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

Iran

Apparently, its not a popular movie in Iran.
Iranians really need to understand that most Americans can't even find Iran on a map ... let alone Persia (clue for most Yanks -- it's not there anymore). Isn't Farsi a brand name for binoculars? Spartans are a bit vague, but most women I've known are intimately familiar with Trojans! :D

Sad but true.... a lot of Americans can't find Canada on a map.

Irish aren't celts theyre Gaelic
:roll:
the celts came from Europe Lee
not ireland
we don't need tar and feathers
but maybe a little knowledge might help
besides which
that wasn't a criticism of the peoples themselves but the way that they are depicted in hollywood

and need I remind you thats this the third time now youve accused me of being dishonest and the third time you've been wrong
:lol:
