  • Number 10 Gangs of New York To defeat my enemy, I extinguish his life and consume him as I consume these flames.

  • This Martin Scorsese epic was based on Herbert Asbury's The Gangs of New York on Informal History of the Underworld, which was published in 1927.

  • 1 of the major departures from reality is the depiction of Bill.

  • The butcher bill is based on the historic William Poole, but pool was murdered a decade before the draft riots began and reportedly never killed anyone.

  • Now you tasted my mutton.

  • How do you like it, huh?

  • In fact, the level of violence in general was often criticized as being a pure Hollywood fabrication.

  • The massive gang fight depicted at the beginning of the film is also entirely fictional, but gang battles did occur on occasion.

  • There were also no Navy ships to quell the riots, and the amount of Chinese Americans in New York was greatly exaggerated.

  • Number nine Cool Runnings This feel good comedy concerns the debut of the Jamaican bobsledding team at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics.

  • Suffice it to say it has been very Disney fied.

  • The biggest fabrication is the bobsled competition itself.

  • Oh, it's it's good.

  • For one thing, the Jamaican athletes were not treated as outsiders, and the American team even helped them out by lending them a sled.

  • Secondly, the team had absolutely no shot at winning a medal, despite what the movie would have you believe now.

  • E going to be able to hold the crash was also not the result of a mechanical failure but shoddy and inexperienced driving and that feel good crossing of the finish line to raucous applause.

  • Yeah, it was more of a defeated limp, with sporadic and tepid encouragement, a disappointment for them.

  • I'm sure that they're not able to complete the event, but maybe they should just be thankful that they're able to walk away.

  • Number eight.

  • The Imitation game In this film, Benedict Cumberbatch portrays Alan Turing, a genius who revolutionized the concept of theoretical computer science and helped decrypt German messages during World War Two.

  • Even before the movie was released, it received controversy for downplaying Turing's homosexuality and casting bombshell Keira Knightley as the so called plain Joan Clarke.

  • I am a candidate for what position didn't say precise, and while cheering did have eccentricities, he wasn't nearly a socially awkward is portrayed in the film.

  • Turing, supposed suicide is also extensively debated to this day, with some experts even claiming that his death was purely accidental.

  • And that's not even touching on all the enigma inaccuracies.

  • Like portraying Turing is a one man forced when he was actually part of a massive collaboration.

  • That's it exactly.

  • Number seven Rudy.

  • Despite being an exceptional and inspiring sports movie, Rudy is greatly exaggerated.

  • The story concerns Daniel Rudy Rudiger, a man who desperately wanted to play for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish despite being just 56 and £165 a massive deviation concerns coach Dan Devine and the famous Jersey protest scene.

  • Divine was greatly vilified for the movie, but by all accounts he was actually very encouraging.

  • That whole laying down the jerseys thing also never happened, and Divine told the Houston Chronicle that it and his role in it were unforgivable.

  • Maruti coach.

  • The crowd also never chanted Rudy's name before he was placed in the game.

  • That said he did actually record a sack and was carried off the field.

  • So that's pretty cool.

  • Number six.

  • A Beautiful Mind This Russell Crowe led film was adapted from a Pulitzer nominated biography of famed mathematician John Nash Jr Nash suffered greatly from mental illness and was eventually treated for paranoid schizophrenia.

  • And while the movie stayed true to the spirit of Nash's story, it ignored a few key details.

  • I need a map.

  • In 1953 Nash fathered an illegitimate child with Eleanor Steer and went on to ignore both Eleanor and their son.

  • When they finally met in person, an ill Nash thought his son would play Quote an essential and significant role in his personal, long awaited gay liberation.

  • You're exceptionally.

  • I bet you're very popular with girls.

  • He also didn't have a good relationship with Alicia Lard, and he was not asked to give a Nobel Prize acceptance speech owing to his mental instability.

  • My quest has taken me through the physical metaphysical, the delusional on back number five Argo.

  • There's no denying that Argo is an exceptionally made movie.

  • It's seven.

  • Oscar nominations can attest to that, but it's nowhere near historically accurate.

  • The film was accused of whitewashing and the casting of Tony Mendez and Coral Eaec.

  • It was also fiercely criticized for exaggerating the CIA's role in the caper, with ex President Jimmy Carter even admitting that quote 90% of the contributions to the ideas and the consummation of the plan was Canadian.

  • Britain and New Zealand were also cheesed with their depictions as they never turned away the American refugees.

  • Brits turned them away.

  • Kiwis turned them away.

  • Canadians stuck them in.

  • In fact, they helped them.

  • And finally, the tense climactic moment where it seems like the group will be caught.

  • Yeah, none of that happened either.

  • Studio six productions.

  • They got away without any problems.

  • They're clear.

  • Yeah.

  • Number four, Pearl Harbor.

  • Where to even start with Pearl Harbor.

  • This is a Michael Bay film through and through, relying on action and bombast and throwing all semblance of historical accuracy of the window.

  • What way targets good job Raiders, but let's get specific.

  • The Japanese never intentionally targeted the hospital.

  • The depiction of the Doolittle raid is near total fabrication.

  • President Roosevelt wasn't notified of the attack by a man dramatically running into the room.

  • How bad?

  • It's still not over.

  • Sir Chester Nimitz and George Marshall actually advocated a retaliatory strike on Japan.

  • And then we veer into the absolute ridiculous.

  • Roosevelt obviously never stood from his wheelchair in a dramatic show of Will, and the movie stole Admiral Yamamoto's iconic sleeping giant line from Tora Tora Tora.

  • By all accounts, he never actually said that.

  • No Number 3 300 spot.

  • The Battle of Thermopylae makes for a great story, but 300 is pure comic book, Which makes sense, considering it was adapted from a comic book.

  • Spartans were not walking around shirtless and showing off their impeccable washboard abs.

  • They were most certainly armored.

  • There also weren't 300 Spartan men at the battle.

  • It was more like 6000 Greek soldiers, comprising numerous city states.

  • The movie was also criticized for its idealize depiction of Sparta and for whittling down a complex situation into a good guys versus bad guys.

  • Morality tale.

  • Effie lt's was also a normal Molly in not a grotesque, Spartan, outcast father.

  • You won't run.

  • That said, the movie clearly isn't taking itself very seriously.

  • So we suppose we confer.

  • Give it Spartans ready your breakfast and eat hearty for tonight.

  • Way Number two.

  • The greatest showman.

  • It may have been made before the acquisition, but this Fox film already felt Disney fied.

  • The greatest showman concerns legendary huckster P.

  • T.

  • Barnum and his infamous American museum.

  • This is definitely a feel good story in which Barnum is portrayed is a flawed but well meaning businessman, and his attraction sing empowering songs about nobility and being different.

  • In reality, Barnum was more exploitative than tolerant, using the so called freaks as pure showbiz for his own fame and profit.

  • You know people are gonna like it if you put us on stage.

  • I'm counting on it.

  • He also exploited egregious racial stereotypes, like promoting the frail Joyce Hef as George Washington's 161 year old mammy.

  • When she passed away, Barnum charged, 1500 New Yorkers, 50 cents each toe watch her public autopsy.

  • Barnum certainly deserves a movie.

  • But the greatest showman ain't it?

  • May be you are fraud.

  • Maybe it was just about making a buck, but you gave us a real family before we unveil our number one pick.

  • Here are some honorable mentions.

  • Catch me if you can.

  • Frank conned people because he wanted Thio not to save his family.

  • Getting it all back a lthough jewelry, all the furs, everything, that everything they took from us.

  • I'm gonna get it back.

  • Remember the Titans?

  • The Titans absolutely dominated, and none of the schools they faced were all white.

  • What you did with those boys with the right man for the job.

  • Coach your Hall of Fame in my book.

  • Thank you 5.

  • 71 Story received heaps of criticism for being a load of fictional bologna thing.

  • Theo Sound of music.

  • That iconic trek through the Swiss Alps never happened.

  • They got a train.

  • Good morning, Vietnam.

  • Very little of the film is based in reality and Cronauer was never kicked out of Vietnam.

  • Cronauer I'm sorry as hell about this thing.

  • Goddammit!

  • I like you, son.

  • E like what you do most of all.

  • I like what you've done for men.

  • Number one Braveheart Mel Gibson's classic war film is certainly epic, but it has very little basis in historic reality.

  • The portrayals of numerous characters including Wallace, Isabella, Robert the Bruce and Prince Edward are all fabricated for story purposes.

  • For example, Isabella was just three years old during the Battle of Falkirk.

  • I have come to beg for the life of William Wallace.

  • You're quite take another three numerous battles and military campaigns, air portrayed inaccurately.

  • The occupation of Scotland wasn't occurring throughout Williams life.

  • It only happened one year before his rebellion for one chance, just one chance to come back here until our enemies that they may take our lives.

  • But they'll never take.

  • Oh, Freedom theme movie is filled with anachronisms like the use of belted.

  • Platt's Longshanks never invoked use prima noctis as that didn't actually exist.

  • First night, when any common girl inhabiting their lands is married, our nobles shall have sexual rights to her other night of her way.

  • All told, Braveheart is far more Hollywood fiction than history.

  • At least Mel Gibson admits as much in the DVD commentary.

  • Do you agree with our picks?
