Raphael's Grave, The Pantheon


Palmyra Before Isis


Vatican Obelisk Erection, 1586


Gladiator (2000)

I get that most historical movies are about as accurate as this one is, but why use real names? Imagine if they made a movie about Jimmy Carter killing Gerald Ford, and then developing a violent blood feud with some made-up baseball player.

Anyway, this movie is weird emotions porn and very boring.
