'Braveheart': 25 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About Mel Gibson's Epic

24 May 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In retrospect, the popularity of "Braveheart" seems like a foregone conclusion.

The movie, which opened 20 years ago this week (on May 24, 1995), won five Oscars, two of them for star Mel Gibson (in his roles as producer and director). The Best Picture winner thrilled audiences as well as critics with its exciting battle scenes, stirring speeches, and sweeping historical narrative of 13th-century Scottish independence fighter William Wallace. At its center is a charismatic performance by the "Lethal Weapon" star, then at the height of his popularity as a box office draw and action hero. It grossed $210 million worldwide. Two decades later, it's still the most famous movie ever made about Scotland.

Still, even though the movie has been a staple for 20 years, there may be plenty you don't know about it, from its generous liberties with history to the R-rated pranks the director pulled on his leading lady.

27 April 2015 9:10 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Variety had a chance to talk to actor, Brian Tee, who played Noburo Mori in The Wolverine.

Brian confirmed that he will be playing The Shredder in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 film.

Tee, a descendant of both Korean and Japanese lines was born in Okinawa, Japan and moved to the Us when he was only 2 years of age. In 1997 he starred in the series, The Pretender and Buffy the Vampire Slayer and has had a fairly steady work flow ever since including, Remember Pearl Harbor, We Were Soldiers, Austin Powers: Goldmember and The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.

He seems like the right person for the job to me, how about y’all?

10 Things Everyone Gets Wrong About The Vietnam War

31 March 2015 12:57 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The Vietnam War is one of the most-controversial military conflicts in American history and has inspired countless books, televisions series and, most-famously, cinema as a result.

Films such as Forrest Gump, Apocalypse Now, Full Metal Jacket, The Deer Hunter and We Were Soldiers – as well as the Rambo movies – have portrayed the warfare experienced during the Vietnam War, the fierce resistance and anti-war protests back on Us soil, as well as the traumatic effects many soldiers suffered from the sickening conflict.

Yet, just like all popular culture, these films have been inspired by the general myths and perceptions that exist about the Vietnam War – created by the media and via other ways in which the war has been portrayed.

But it is dangerous to just take the stereotypes that have been linked to the Vietnam War as gospel – because in many cases they simply do not bear up to close scrutiny. »
