I Just Watched POMPEII Today

I'm planning to watch "Pompeii" soon as it appears on Pay-per-view. Like what I see so far. Far as accuracy goes, if the movie was made as what the uncovered frescoes show, the film would be rated NC-17 (or XXX).

 

Mount Vesuvius is one of the world's most dangerous volcanoes and the 1944 eruption was only a hiccup.

 

The portrayal of lava bombs is quite accurate.

Trivia: Some scenes in a 1944 newsreel of Vesuvius are used as stock footage i.e. "War of The Worlds" (1953).

I posted a thread about "Pompeii" in "Films and Filmmakers."

 

It included this funny review by Richard Crouse and Mark Breslin:

The volcano is apparently the best actor in the film...
