It’s been so long since I last watched it, the first time in English though (still trying to improve my awful listening skills).
I love it. I love it so much.
Russel Crowe is a talented actor, and the way they portrayed Rome kinda makes me nostalgic and makes me want to go back there again. The Colosseum, the streets, the Roman Forum; everytime I go there I feel like I’m breathing history.
I can watch a thousand movies but I’ll always be fond of this one.
Maybe because in the past I used to watch it with my brother; we sat there in awe the whole time, only to sit up together at one point of the movie to recite: “My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, Commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius.”
Nostalgic movie is nostalgic.
