List of Movies Concerning the History and Literature of the Colonial and Revolutionary Period (1600-1800AD)

This list attempt to compile the best movies that might supplement a study of 17th and 18th centuries. This is not a comprehensive list, but hopefully gives a well-rounded sampling.

To assist you in finding what you may be interested in (there will be some overlap), here is a table of contents:
The New World Colonial Period - 1
Literature of the 1600s - 11
Imperial Age (Europe 1600-1700) - 20
The arts - 44
Scientific Revolution - 54
Europe of 1700s - 59
Literature of the 1700s - 74
Pirates - 80
Americas Pre-Revolutionary War - 87
The US Revolutionary War - 101
The French Revolution - 117
US post-Revolution - 127
Far East -132
*Note that I have very, very little of non-European/American history in this list. See my previous list (Middle Ages through Elizabethan era) or the next list (The 19th Century) for a more extensive section with that focus.

My criteria for a movie/show to be included were that:
1) It had to fall within the historical time-frame given,
2) It had to receive at least a star rating of 6.0 from IMDb,
3) It had to be at least be theoretically possible to FIND the movie somewhere, such as on Netflix or Amazon.

As I am not an expert on history nor have I actually watched most of the movies listed here, I make no promises about the relevance or appropriateness of any movie listed.
*Parental Discretion Advised*

I would welcome any comments or suggestions.
