Re: Fantasy movie
Very typical, the queen of england is brilliant, the english pirates good and sympathetic men, but the spanish king is idiot, crazy, bad, etc. I don´t understand why the spanish are the bad guys in all movies of this period. When England is an empire in nineteen century, they are the good guys.
The reasons of the spanish armada are political and economical: to finish the english piracy and eliminate the english support to the dutch rebels, and in lesser way the execution of Mary I of Scotland (catholic). Other reasons like the religion have few influence. But in the movie Phillip II is a religious fanatic.
In summary ahistorical.

I wish that the game is much more faithful to the history that not this commercial film. shake

The problem is that people see a film as this and thinks that is certain history. A good historical film would have to avoid to present good and bad sides like, and to show that each side was right its objectives and right.

Re: Henri 4
I think this movie could be interesting, the germans in general make good history movies, Lutero for example.
