    Ironically, the Romans were the only ones using crossbows in that movie. :D

    As for Mongols vs Japanese, from what I recall, the Japanese were getting their asses kicked by the Mongol vanguard until the typhoon that sank the rest of the Mongol army resulted in the vanguard becoming cut off and surrounded. IIRC, Japanese swords were of such poor quality that they frequently broke against Mongol steel.

    Japanese swords at that time were mostly made of pig iron, therefore it requires greater bending and folding of the molten metal to give it more strength, even than that wasn't enough against higher quality swords. That's why it takes swordsmen more practice on precision strike in order to prevent it from being broken.

    If you like Love Story and have Amazon Prime. Please watch The Fox Seduction at Amazon Prime. Also has a lot of foxy ladies. Plot started as very silly in the beginning but turns out to have a very deep meaning towards the end.

    Yellow Emperor, so around 2500 BCE.

    As usual, the actors look too clean/shaven.

    Hey so I'm not sure if this is appropriate for this thread but their has been a recent Chinese Korean War movie <我的战争>, and it's suddenly got huge backlash. Now I'm not to much into politics, but what seems to be all the noise? I actually wanted to see this film from the early trailers, now the moods kind of died off.

    From what I understand, the controversy came form an advertisement for the movie that generated huge backlash. The movie director and producers have disavowed the ad.

    Just watched McDull Rise of the Rice Cooker and I gotta say besides from being appropriate for the kiddies, the "twist" is both a down to earth reminder and a nice break for adults from all the focus on conflict in so much entertainment targeting either kids or adults these days.
