    Hm I thought this would be closer but it's still early. Two epic war films, this will be interesting.

    Even though Braveheart is historically inaccurate, I still gotta pull for it.

    They were both great but I voted for SPR. It's too bad they messed up the battle at Sterling Bridge so much in Braveheart. The way it really happened was really impressive. Too be honest, I would be happy with either one winning this round.

    Scots also did not wear kilts at the time.
    Being a scot, my mom thaught me the "proper" answer as to the question, "what do you wear under the kilt?"
    Answer, " Your mothers' lipstick"

    I'm in.

    Honestly, I went back and forth for 3 days. I finally went with the film that I find myself watching on a more regular basis. Saving Private Ryan.
