Top Ten Best Historical Drama Movies

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
1 Lawrence of Arabia

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.

One of the greatest and most beautiful movies ever. It has to be one of the best movies ever.

2 Gladiator

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.

Commodus it's so tedious, but amazing!

Best Movie of all-time.

3 Gone with the Wind

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.

4 Schindler's List

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.

Easy number one

5 300

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.

6 Braveheart

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.

7 Julius Caesar (1970)

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.

8 The Passion Of The Christ

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.

9 Lincoln

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.

10 Apollo 13
The Contenders
11 BlacKkKlansman
12 Darkest Hour

I love Darkest Hour. I wish they make a sequel.

13 Agora
14 Saving Private Ryan

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.

15 Reds
16 Zulu

Zulu is pretty good.

17 Ben Hur

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.

18 Doctor Zhivago
19 Green Book
20 Finding Neverland
21 Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)
22 Barry Lyndon

Best historical drama ever.

23 Gettysburg
24 Stan and Ollie (2018)
25 Enemy at the Gates
