Sometimes we believe so much that we never check if everything they showed us even happened in real life. But we should.

Nexter.org brings you a part 2 of the list of amazingly inaccurate .

Pearl Harbour

Oh, we don’t even know where to start, because there are so many inaccuracies. From small errors, like smoking Marlboro Lights, which didn’t exist at that time, to bigger ones like saying that only Danny and Rafe were holding off the Japanese attack when in reality there were about 90 American men.

A Beautiful Mind

In general, the movie did a good job of telling us the biography of John Forbes Nash Jr., although these are some slip-ups. For example, Nash didn’t give a speech on the awarding of the Nobel Prize, also he has never experienced visual hallucinations.

First of all, the movie didn’t mention that there were 7,000 Greeks supporting the Spartan army. Also, Persians didn’t have rhinos and charging elephants and King Xerxes is not really a giant covered in piercings and gold chains.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

This movie states that this is a real story, when in fact it is completely fictional. Tobe Hooper, the director of the movie, said that this was made on purpose, responding to the fact that everyone is being “lied to the government about things that were going on all over the world”. Although, Leatherface was inspired by a real maniac Ed Gein, who really made trophies out of human skin and bones.

Pocahontas

Firstly, her real name is Amonute and Pocahontas is just a nickname. Secondly, in 1607 she was about 10 years old, so what romance relationships with John Smith are we talking about? Also, “Good Indian” trope, which the movie propagates is a lie told by Pocahontas to save Smith’s life.

Elizabeth: The Golden Age

Source: Roger Ebert

The romantic line is the movie is great, but it is very unlikely that it happened in real life, because Elizabeth always prioritized the state needs over her personal relationships. Moreover, Raleigh who is shown as a hero sailing into the Spanish fleet, in reality was told to stay on shore and command land defenses.

Braveheart

Source: The Dissolve

Well, to begin with, the sequence of events and the whole timeline of the movie doesn’t make any sense historically. Additionally, kilts and blue face paint didn’t exist at that time and the Battle of Stirling Bridge in reality happened on a bridge. Moreover, nobody called Wallace “Braveheart”. That was really a title of Robert the Bruce, a hero of Scotland, but in the movie, they decided to portray his as a traitor.

Artemisia

Artemisia and Tassi have never been in romantic relationships. In fact, Tassi was accused of raping Artemisia and she testified that it is true, while in the movie she denies this. Also, the movie states that Tassi influenced Artemisia’s art, more specifically – landscapes, when in reality she doesn’t have any works focused on landscapes, or the nude male body.

That is all we have for you today. Spread the word, guys! Don’t let your friends believe all these lies.
