  1. Scott always has the knack for unique imagery and Gladiator doesn’t disappoint. I think the image that always lingers in my mind is the scene where he enters into his “heaven” to reunite with his wife a son. Bringing the hero’s quest for justice and vengeance to a satisfying ending with his family being whole again. That always gets me a bit misty-eyed, to be honest. One of my all-time favs, great movie,

  2. I’d really like to watch this again, it’s been so long. I saw it for the first time in my 10th grade English class and it was much better the second time getting to see it on a TV that wasn’t across a classroom.

    • I’m due a rewatch too. I really want to show it to my kids so hopefully soon. It’s funny, if I’m not mistaken this movie was the first DVD I ever bought.

  3. I am surprsied to hear many bloggers in recent years not liking this blockbuster. I absolutely love everything about it. Your shots are the ones that stay with me. Nice job, Keith. His floating on his back as he approaches death’s door is fantastic.

    • Some of the more recent reactions to it have been kinda weird. A LOT of people (including me) really loved it when it first came out. I still do and really don’t get this dismissal from some.

  4. Wow… I’m probably in that crowd of people that didn’t like this film. I don’t hate it but I just don’t think it is a great film. It had its moments but I found myself bored by it.
