Mel Gibson Week - Braveheart (1995)

Mel Gibson Week - Braveheart (1995)

Hey Nerds!  In this episode we put on facepaint and scream for FREEDOM as they geek out over Mel Gibson and his Oscar-winning movie about the Scottish folk-hero William Wallace.  Yes, this is our Braveheart movie review podcast!

Though the film plays a tad fast-and-loose with actual history, this 1995 movie has some epic battle scenes and stirring speeches that have wormed their way into the cultural fabric of our times.  Who knew men in kilts could be so inspirational?

Mel Gibson directed and starred in this movie, wearing some epic hair extensions while doing so.  He's joined by Sophie Marceau, Angus Macfadyen, Brian Cox, Catherine McCormack, Brendan Gleeson, and Tommy Flanagan in a script from screenwriter Randall Wallace.
