Please tell me you watched the director's cut, it is vastly superior to the original cinematic cut.
Yeah, it took my 2 days but I watched the director’s cut.

Interesting movie. One of those films where the main storyline (Orlando Bloom’s journey) is vastly overshadowed by the world in which it takes place. I was captivated anytime Baldwin IV and/or Saladin are on screen, or whenever they were being discussed but I didn’t really feel much investment into Bloom’s fairly formulaic journey.

No one beats Ridley Scott’s sets and cinematography in a historical setting, though, IMO

When I was young, Rivera. Many more since then.
Thank you for the recommendation, brother. I recently watched Kingdom of Heaven, so it has been all Saladin this and Baldwin IV that for me these last 2 weeks.
Recently listened to a podcast on the Crusades. In an interview with Helena Schrader, she claims that the real life story of Balian of Ibelin is far more interesting (and quite different) than his portrayal in the movie. She has a 3-book series on the dude (semi-fictional).

EDIT: just added he book (The Crusades Through Arab Eyes) to my Kindle list

You should look into the real life story of Balian d'Ibelin. Different from you see in the movie but quite interesting. Apparently his sons stood up to Frederick II and won.

I've seen the name Ricci mentioned quite a bit so decided to check him out.

That guy would be riding the bench here...

Merda's team was already well functioning before Pavard. Inzaghi is doing miracles with the roster he has. Pioli needs to step up otherwise we will have another miserable season considering the general level of Serie A teams.

Shinter is not much better than Milan. Their striker is better and we are short for one CM. Thats it. But their strenght over Milan is Inzaghi. Better coach than Pioli

AC Milan are unbeaten in each of their last 17 away matches against Bologna in Serie A (W12, D5).

The last home win for the Emilians against the Rossoneri was back on 10th March 2002 (2-0 under Francesco Guidolin).
