"Michael Collins" is one I remember and like.

watched a movie last night called "Boondock Saints". It had A LOT of cursing in it, but if you could get past that, it wasn't bad. However, there were times that all the cursing made me feel like I was losing brain cells! 


My roommates and I watched that a couple of weeks ago and I loved it. It's such an interesting movie.

State of Grace - Irish mob movie set in New York City with Sean Penn, Ed Harris and Gary Oldman. I've lost track of how many times I've seen this one but it is one of my favourite.

In the Name of the Father - Just saw it a few nights ago when my youngest wasn't feeling well. I was up with him until 3:00 a.m. and this movie just happened to be on.

My favorite Celtic-themed movies (I'm just putting these down in the order I thought of them biggrin.gif ) :

1. "The Nephew"
2. "The Magdalene Sisters"
3. "Braveheart"
4. "The Quiet Man"
5. "Rob Roy"

BTW, "The Magdalene Sisters" is the only time I've ever been to an arthouse. My mom and I wanted to see it, and the local arts center had a screening.

I like all these too, especially Braveheart, and Rob Roy, excellent!

I forgot about it the other day but I really liked Evelyn starring Pierce Brosnan. It was a sweet movie that told a great story.

Thank you all for the suggestions as I haven't seen all these movies mentioned here. My faves are "Waking Ned Devine" (though its not Celtic themed, but does show the lovely Emerald Isle!), Braveheart, and Songcatcher. Songcatcher is actually about Scottish ballads found in the Southern Appalachians. It's a really good pick if you're headed out to the video store tonight!

I've heard bad things about Druids myself. About a year ago (around the time I got told about this site) I saw the DVD on sale for like $3 or something outrageous. It just didn't look promising, the cover art or the price! So, let's say that luckily I skipped it. wink.gif

And now that you mentioned it, making a Celtic/Druid movie would be loads of fun! Possibly another endeavor for me to undertake as I have a DV camcorder.

I think Y'all might have been living under a rock somewhere (or should that be rocks?)

What about Local Hero ? If you haven't seen it then it is your loss.

And what about Zulu probably one of the all time best movies ever made that was based on an historical fact and which featured a rousing rendition of Men of Harlech sung over the noise of thousands of Zulu spears beating against shields.

Sheesh, One hundred and thirty-nine British soldiers against 4000 Zulu warriors. And out of that small number of men defending Roarke's Drift, 11 Victoria Crosses were awarded. Y'all need to trash the Titanic and pick a man's movie with so much Britishness that it never needs to be overtly stated.

This film has been commented many times here already, but I must say again "Braveheart" was the most moving one I'd ever watched. I shed a bucket of tears and was loudly wailing (I watched the video alone!) This film had me start reading about the Scottish history.

I heard a rumor that Mel wanted to make another film with a Welsh thread (Owain Glyndwr, I believe) but had to give up because of a strong opposition he encountered. I wish he had made it anyway. It would have drawn worldwide attention to Wales as "Brave" did to Scotland.

Aye! I love Titanic and Braveheart! My favorite scenes on Titanic include the part when they are dancing to Gaelic Storm and when the Celtci music is playing while they are being chased. biggrin.gif I also like the secret of Roan Inish, about the selkies.

Some of my favorites:

Far and Away - Good stroy, I just get irritated that Tom Cruise's fake Irish accent comes and goes. If you've got to fake it, at least try to keep it through out, Tom! Sheesh!

The Secret of Roan Inish, and The Seventh Stream - I've lumped these two together becasue they are both about Selkies, which I adore! Both are excellent. I highly recommend them!

Riverdance, and Lord of the Dance - Still wonderful after all this time!

Braveheart - Wonderful movie!

A movie to avoid like the plague - Druids - I was SO disappointed in this movie. I t stars Christopher Lambert from the Highlander movies, so I thought it would HAVE to be good... Boy did I get fooled! ABSOLUTLEY HORRID acting in this movie. I've had several people tell me that the plot of the movie was good if you can get past the acting. Well, I couldn't... maybe you can...

Aye! I love selkies! I like The Secret of Roan Inish and Seventh Stream!

Add my kudos to the following:
Braveheart
Zulu (Oh yeah, a real MANS movie! Hoo Yah!!!)
Into the West

my son recommends Boondock Saints. Haven't seen it yet though.

How about "The Englishman that went up a hill but came down a Mountain" - is that the right title?
