I Just Watched POMPEII Today


Recommended Posts

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).
