Three Out Of Four Ain't Bad

Welcome back Sola-man. And he is back with a bang in a piece entitled Ridley Scott's Rewrite.
Being a fan of Blade Runner, Gladiator and Blackhawk Down, I was looking forward to Ridley Scott's new film, Kingdom of Heaven. Then I found this article from the Telegraph. It sounds like we are going to be assaulted again with another Hollywood revision of history.
Read the rest to find out why Sola reaches this conclusion:
So, "historically accurate" has nothing to do with reporting history factually; it's about rewriting history to make it "fair". I've got news for you, Ridley. History isn't fair. It is what it is what it is.
