i havent watched loads of celtic movies..braveheart is my favorite along with rob roy.. the The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain was good too
ive watched the first knight right after i finished King Arthur in the movies & i found it confusing... but i preferred King Arthur to the other one..the battle scene was great..& the costumes are much professional than First Knights where u think richard gere is wearing some black versace leather trousers...
i'm still looking into ordering some movies like "mists of avalion" though some didnt recommend orderin it..

A friend of mine always talked about The Commitments but I haven't seen it yet. Sounds good, just haven't had the opportunity to see it yet.

Talleyrand,

I've seen it a number of times and I'm probably due to watch it again soon. It is a great movie. Andrew Strong who plays "Deco", has an amazing voice (Joe Cocker-ish). If you do watch it, you will be amazed when listening to "Deco" sing that he was only 16 when he did the movie. He also doesn't look it.

Gregory's Girl. Not celtic per se, maybe, but one of the sweetest and funniest things I've ever seen, and I doubt it would be itself or as good if it had been made elsewhere. Not a standard teen fluff-angst film -- it's scottish all right. smile.gif

Aaediwen brought over a movie from his collection entitled "Songcatcher" that he noted as a great movie! We didn't get a chance to watch it but we did watch "Dune" which was an awesome flick! Songcatcher stars Aidan Quinn and Janet McTeer and was released in 2000. From what I hear, it has an excellent soundtrack complete with Scottish and Irish ballads! It's my next new movie to view!

Here's a link about the movie: http://imdb.com/title/tt0210299/

Some of my faves:
Rob Roy
Waking Ned Divine
Braveheart
Gangs of New York

A few good suggestions already, I would add

In the name of the Father
The Boxer
Evelyn
Michael Collins

All of which show some of Ireland's hard times in adjusting post-Celtic rule.

My personal favs riped right from Celtic lore
LOTR: Fellowship of the rings
LOTR: The Two Towers
LOTR: Return of the King


The Matchmaker
The Quiet Man
I don't know if it counts as it was current day Irish brothers in Boston, but Boondock Saints was areally cool movie
Waking Ned Devine
Darby O'Gill and the Little People
Kidnapped
Mrs. Brown
Tunes of Glory
Timeline

You can also find a listing of films that contain kilts in them at www.kiltmen.com

Darby O'Gill and the Little People ...an older movie but a good one I also love Rob Roy. Braveheart rocks...can always watch that one.

I guess I need to watch Waking Ned Devine

What is "Waking Ned Devine"? Was Billy Elliot an Irish movie? Of course, even though I sound typical now, Braveheart is the ultimate movie and I still cry. I also concur with liking "The Quiet Man", we watched it in high school.

Hey all, I know this thread hasn't been touched in a while, but I have to recommend "The Field" with Richard Harris and Sean Bean. It's an excellent example of tradition and how it can turn into an obsession. Don't expect a happy movie, but it's one you can sink your teeth into.

I have been reading through this topic and I am quiet amazed by the praise I've seen for Braveheart. As a Fantasy movie it is well done but for historical accuracy it is a piece of garbage. The only accurate part in the movie is the method by which he was killed.

I agree too, it is a well made movie but a lot of speculation about the personal life of this great scottish hero. I have read a lot about this man and the one book that left me a bit shaken is that he was involved somehow with the Knights Templar,
I'll have to look up my numerous books to find the title of it.

And this man suffered a gruesome death in the hands of his executioner.LOA

If you wish to read another version of Wallace (though somewhat romanticized) and have not already done so read "Blind Harry"s Wallace. William Hamilton of Gilbertfields translation.
