movie talk: braveheart vs. gladiator

i had a chat with AM recently about epic movies and the classics: 'braveheart' and 'gladiator' popped-up. both are good movies with strong stories and strong performances. AM is a strong braveheart fan. i loved both, but if i had to choose the better movie: i think i would pick gladiator. it wasn't as emotionally deep as braveheart, but being a bit shorter in length, i thought the film was more focused (plus it had a happier death ending). so instead of screaming ' freedom! ' in agony to braveheart, i shall agree with gladiator and say that: 'we will meet again. but not yet... not yet.'

which would you choose?

I loved both movies as well, but I have to agree with you on the beautiful death part. I found myself watching the last scene over and over again because it was so peaceful. Hard to believe that a movie filled with so much action and violence throughout could be so profound at the end.

As a sidenote, I went out and downloaded the Gladiator theme song just so I could relive it all in my head as I drive around town.
