I'm a huge fan of General Hiram Ulysses Grant and I thought his portrayal in Lincoln was spot on. They even had Ely Parker ( his closest friend and secretary ) played by a Native American actor. Spielbergs attention to detail was amazing.

The imitation Game is not actual very historical, there were not just five dudes triyng to decript enigma, there were over 10.000 men who worcked, intercepting mesages from around the world.

12 Years a Slave was an absolutely necessary film indeed. Heinously real. No other film makes your heart wrench like this does.

Thank God “12 Years a Slave” was made. It was one of the most eye opening films ever into the true horrors of slavery.

"300" & "Braveheart" belong on this list.  Spartan warriors really did wear speedo-leather briefs and Scottish peasants all had really good dental plans.

Very good list! I especially agree on Lincoln and 12 Years a Slave. Nice watch!

Lincoln actually didn’t care to end slavery. The actual 13th amendment he pushed for wanted to permanently establish slavery. Also, if you add the actual text of the so called emancipation proclamation, he “freed “ slaves only on the states opposed to the union. The mid Atlantic slave states were not opposed by the proclamation. Again, read the actual text.

it is a crime against humanity that Spielberg's Lincoln did not win the Academy Awards for Best Picture as well as Best Director

Serpico is the most historically accurate police film I've ever seen. They even made the rooms of the main character, look exactly like it was in real life (according to the real life Serpico)

Although I now see what you in fact wrote, so perhaps my mini essay below is a bit misplaced after all...

While the combat scenes are extremely good (altough still nowhere near what it looks like in real life, that would be so gruesome it would be impossible to show on screen) the story is ficticious. It draws some inspiration from real events (like the Sullivan Brothers who all went down with the USS Juneau), but there never was a Private Ryan who was to be located in Normandy and brought out of harms way like in the movie, so while it is very well made it still is not historically accurate, hence it does not belong on a list such as this one.

Don't really think any American war movie can be historically accurate.
Loosely, sure. But not nearly 100%.
They are ALWAYS the good guys, which is nothing short of horse shit.
Then again, most countries are guilty of taking patriotism a little too far.

I've found funny the fact you mentioned City of God and not Waterloo since I think, from the history point of view, it's more important (well, we are talking about a movie that showcases the last stroke of one person that dictated most of the changes we had all over Europe). I guess you had to choose between Waterloo and Gettysburg and you obviously choose the one that comes from Murica (since Waterloo was directed by a Russian/Ucranian).

The most accurate movie like line for line as historians captured was Valkyrie from Tom Cruse. I'm a historian and can confirm the absolute accurateness from the script to the uniforms was 100% .same its not on u list. Maybe its because it was not a movie that portray Germany as the demon's for once. A nother on was the story of Jesus on the cross from Mel Gibson.

Lincoln movie was a fantasy; the idea that Lincoln freed the slaves for altruistic reason is just not true. Altruism in general was not his strong point.

Little do people know that when churchill was prime minister, an estimated number of 2.1 to 3 million people in British India lost their lives in bengal famine of 1943 . Without feeding it's own population, India HAD to sent major amount of it's food overseas as military rations for british soldiers. So yeah, wisely choose your heroes .
