Opening Scene of Gladiator

While there are many historical inaccuracies of this scene I can’t help but enjoy the portrayal of a historical battle set in a cinematic reenactment.

MONGOL

I’m not sure why this film didn’t get more publicity or why they haven’t made any other films following this one of the rest of Genghis’s exploits, because this movie was beautifully shot and keeps the warrior in us satisfied with solid action.  If you haven’t seen this film I recommend it.  It not only entertains but gives the viewer a good feel of the Mongolian steppe during the time of the Great Khan.

The Hobbit- The Desolation of Smaug

 While it seemed many were slightly disappointed by the first of the three Hobbits, I was glad to see this amazing fantastical world on the big screen once again.  It was as if I was returning to an old friend.  Nothing overly new and exciting from the work of Lord of the Rings, but who doesn’t want more of those fun times? So yes my Dungeon and Dragons spirit is ready for more of the same.

Pavel Ryzhenko

Pavel Ryzhenko is a Russian artist (born in 1970) and professor at the Russian Fine Arts Academy. He specializes in historical & religious paintings. While his  paintings may not be historically accurate, but rather give an idea of what happened and convey feelings, I find them gripping.
