The Next Best Picture Podcast – “Gladiator”

For this month’s first throwback podcast review, I am joined by Josh Parham and guests Jay Ledbetter & Aaron Samuel to discuss Ridley Scott’s Best Picture Oscar-winning 2000 film “Gladiator” starring Russell Crowe, Joaquin Phoenix, Connie Nielsen, Oliver Reed, Derek Jacobi, Djimon Hounsou & Richard Harris. As we prepare for the release of Ridley Scott’s latest collaboration with Phoenix in “Napoleon,” we decided to resist Ancient Rome to see how the violent, rousing, historical epic has held up 23 years since its release. What did we think of the story, the performances, and Scott’s direction? Tune in as we discuss these elements, including its Academy Awards performance, and more in our SPOILER-FILLED review. Thank you, and enjoy!
