The Age of Antiquity

IT’S FUNNY HOW sometimes movies which have something in common arrive in bunches, as I’ve written about before [see post on Captain Phillips].  And so the time has come for big spectacles based in the Mediterranean region 2000+ years ago: PompeiiNoahSon of God and the 300 sequel are all being released within a few weeks of one-another.  Coincidence?  I think not.  I’ve got no issue with this, it’s just an observation.  Now let’s get ready for lots of over-the-top gory bloodshed!

  1. Interesting observation. It is never just a coincidence that the ‘same-topic’ films arrive together. I remember I was surprised to be presented with ‘Shakespeare in Love’, ‘Elizabeth’ and ‘Les Miserables’, plus a bunch of others the names I cannot even recall now in 1998.
