The movie Gladiator directed by Ridley Scott could be the biggest disaster of a film on ancient Rome. This film’s only positive trait was how Ridley Scoot and the writers showed an accurate view of how the people and violence were at that time which was the 2nd century AD.

The historical inaccuracies included gladiatorial, military, and political inaccuracies.

In 1984, Spielberg followed up "Raiders" with Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, which was a commercial success but did not receive the critical acclaim of its predecessor. As a producer, Spielberg took on many projects in the 1980s, such as The Goonies, and was the brains behind the little monsters in Gremlins (1984). He also produced the cartoon An American Tail, a quaint little animated classic. His biggest effort as producer in 1985, however, was the blockbuster Back to the Future , which made Michael J. Fox an instant superstar. As director, Spielberg took on the book The Color Purple, with Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah Winfrey, with great success.
Apart from Shadow of a Doubt (1943), Psycho (1960) is the only picture where the central figure is a villain. Hitchcock delineates the memorable villain Uncle Charlie (Joseph Cotton) in such a way that he demands public sympathy as he is never shown in the act of killing the widows. Uncle Charlie, a killer with an ideal feels that his mission is to destroy. Even though the widows might have deserved such a punishment but he was not to undertake it.

Such vivid descriptions reveals Vonnegut’s purpose of trying to convince the reader that they must reevaluate what they truly want for the future and well-being of

She took a calculated risk when she killed man, but it was not a accident.
The movie was not necessarily bad; however I was quite displeased with the lack in detail which the book had strived in. The disappointment began with the casting Homayoun Ershadi as ‘Baba’ or Agha Sahib. In the novel Baba seems untouchable – unreachable – because he towers over ordinary men. Needless to say, he also towers
Macbeth easily tempted into murder to fulfill his ambitions to the throne, and once he commits his first crime and is crowned king of Scotland, he had to kill other people to keep his secret safe and to secure his throne and the moment of awful guilt when Banquo’s ghost appears and also his lady’s death seems to give away the misery.
