"The Queen of England" in reality is not just Queen of England, as referred to by Scarlet and the Minions, and it's a regularly promoted misnomer in Hollywood that England is the only part of the UK that has a monarchy (with many people believing that "England" and "UK/Britain" are interchangeable terms). Queen Elizabeth II is Queen of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, which also encompasses Scotland and Wales. Wales formally united with England in 1536, Scotland's and England's crowns formally united in 1603 with a parliamentary union occurring in 1707. Ireland joined the Union in 1801, with the Irish Free State being established in 1921 and leaving only the Northern States maintaining membership of the UK since. See more »
You'd be hard-pressed to find a historical account that acknowledges the influence (much less the existence of) the Minions throughout time. No matter how many textbooks are produced and released each year, almost ZERO of them note the presence of this incredibly powerful minority group.
Well, where history has silenced the Minions, let this surprisingly accurate documentary speak volumes. I found no embellishments of history throughout this 91-minute feature. It would have been easy to swing the pendulum of power to overemphasize the history of the Minions as it relates to major world events, but the filmmakers didn't go for the easy shots. They simply told the truth, and what we are left with are the clear facts of what really happened to the dinosaurs, the cavemen, and--what I'm sure will be most controversially-- the true lineage of royalty in England. Very bold.
If this doesn't win the Oscar for Documentary Feature, we will truly know which side of history the Academy stands on.
