Default Movie - Gladiator

This movie slaps!




In 2009, a few tennis players were asked about their favorite movie... and literally 5 of like 10 people selected Gladiator.

After seing this movie, I understand. Gotta be some brutally motivating stuff for an athlete.

Troy is underrated. Not nearly as good as Gladiator, but at the least it is of the same ilk.

Forrest Gump is the GOAT movie... funnily enough, he's almost nothing like the actual Forrest Gump in the novel.

If you need a motivational movie, watch Whiplash.

Dude... I must be getting old or youíre really young or maybe itís both... Gladiator absolutely shits on the movies mentioned in this thread including the ones I mentioned except for Gump.

I donít know how you havenít seen it unless itís an age thing. Pretty sure people loving it at the time had nothing to do with being an athlete.

Well, of course it has to do with being an athlete.

Ask 12 top tennis players in the world in 2009 about their favorite movie, ask ANY group ANYWHERE even one with the same mindset or even religion, and you would probably never get 5 out of 12 picking the same movie...

not even Godfather would have that high a ratio of mention.

Yeah I was young af when it came out. Wasnt even allowed to watch such movies yet. Or you're getting old, whatever way you wanna look at it ;)

Damn, what an experience.

I watched it as a kid and liked it but i think it already felt kinda artificial/over-top to me, so Im pretty sure thats what would happen if I watch it again lol.
