In this episode, Nate rights a nearly 20-year wrong and gets Ryan to watch Braveheart for the first time. Nate’s been a fan since childhood, and given Ryan’s well known aversion to epic period movies, this has the makings of a battle worthy of…well, an epic war movie. With Scottish freedom on our minds, it’s only right that we honor the recent vote in Scotland with one of the most revered movies about Scottish freedom.
Braveheart is a very loose retelling of the fight of William Wallace to fight for the freedom of Scotland and to avenge the death of his wife. The kilts, blood, meaningful gazes, and political backstabbing is in full force, as Gibson brings the violent war epic together with romance in a film the whole family will enjoy!
As always, tell us what you think about what we think about Braveheart. Are you one of those who have loved it as much as you’ve always loved it? Has your love waned over the years? Has it been nearly 20 years since you’ve seen it? Does Mel Gibson’s charm still make you swoon?
