Weigh In: Braveheart

braveheart-melWith Scottish freedom once again on everybody’s minds, Nate thought this would be a good time to force Ryan to watch a movie that he has somehow gone most of his life not seeing: Braveheart.  Long-time listeners of the podcast know how Ryan feels about historical epics, so let us know your thoughts.  When did you first see Braveheart?  How do you feel about it?  Has Mel Gibson’s recent fall from grace colored your opinion?  Do you think it’s good, but it’s no Passion of the Christ?  How do you suggest Ryan approaches this movie, knowing full well he historically has an anti-epic bias?  If they take your land, can they also take your freedom?
