Top Ten Best Historical Drama Movies2storm This subcategory of movies features some off the most popular movies we have ever seen. Some of these are my favorite movies ever. These capture a lot of different emotions that other movies just can not. In most of these are acting and music is on point. There also has to have some accuracy. So without further ado let's look at the top ten best historical dramas ever.
The Top Ten
Gladiator in my opinion is easily the best. For one it is easily the most accurate of this list. Sure their are a few inaccuracies, but overall none are too important. It is very realistic and easily one of the best movies I have ever seen. It has a perfect combination of action, adventure, love, revenge, and tragedy. It has one of the best scenes in movie history with the famous "Are you not Entertained" scene. The ending may be sad, but in my opinion that just makes this movie better. Their is great acting top to bottom. Their is no way you can watch this movie and not love it. - 2storm
Commodus it's so tedious, but amazing!
Best Movie of all-time. - 2storm
300 is amazing. Sure it isn't the most accurate portrayal, it is still an amazing movie. Like Gladiator it has all the qualities you like in a movie. Plus it has easily has the best action sequences on this list. It has some of the best speeches ever. Plus the ending is pretty sad (like almost all of these movies), but it is also satisfying at the same time. - 2storm
Braveheart is just amazing. It is inaccurate, but it makes for it in a heartbreaking tragedy. It has some of the most sad moments and the most epic speeches. It is fueled behind a lifelong rage in Wallace that just makes this movie emotionally impactful. Plus the score may be the best. - 2storm
Get this to #1 nou! or Saving Private Ryan...
I'm gonna be real with you guys I forgot this one. Lawrence of Arabia is easily one of the best movies ever and it is really accurate. - 2storm
Whether you are a Christian or not you have to agree this is one of the best movies ever. Everyone agrees that Jesus did live and he died on the cross. This movie is what that is about. This is probably the saddest movie out there. It is brutal and it shows the true extent of what they did to Jesus. Me being a Christian, I see a few inaccuracies, but nothing too major. - 2storm
A great film that shows a touching story about a Nazi that transforms from being a greedy concentration camp director to Jew saver. It features a sad ghetto liquidation scene that is almost unwatchable. - 2storm
Easy number one - iliekpiez
Easily the most accurate on this list. This movie has been praised by D-Day veterans as being the most accurate depiction of the Normandy Landing ever. Like the rest, it has a very heartbreaking ending. One of the best war films ever. - 2storm
Not a historical drama. - 2storm
A great movie. Just very inaccurate and a horrible ending. Very good acting though. - 2storm
A interesting film about the months leading up to Lincoln's death. It is inaccurate and honestly it kinda gets boring in parts of it. It is still a good movie, but their are just some questionably decisions made on the directing side. Their is still great acting and music. - 2storm
The man, the myth, the legend Julius Caesar. The one movie we all saw in High School. Since we don't know a lot about Caesar's death we can't say whether this movie is accurate or not. I will tell you what though this movie is a masterpiece. Great acting and a great storyline. Plus it has Charlton Heston. - 2storm
A great outside a view of the crucifixion of. Not as much of a tragedy as the rest, but it is still an amazing film. It is accurate and correlates with the Bible. It features the best actor ever, in my opinion, in Charlton Heston. - 2storm
How could I forget Gone With The Wind. Easily one of the best movies of all-time. I honestly don't know if it's that accurate, but it is a movie really about a day that is now gone. Plus it has great acting and music. - 2storm
Pretty good movie - 2storm
Eugene O'Neill was real as was the Russian Revolution.
I love Darkest Hour. I wish they make a sequel. - 2storm
