Tywin's bastard Posted June 18, 2011 Share Posted June 18, 2011 Spartacus battles are fucking amazing:Images are better than words:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XjPhKSlvYeY&playnext=1&list=PL3C4E12D39FD428B1http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JAtrwhoROM&feature=relatedEven Titus Pullo fight in Rome, made by HBO, was better than the stuff in GoThttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcECeLjwNlkSpartacus was the Hollywood action kind of combat in a show that was purposefully exaggerating blood a lot. Not even in the same ballpark as GoT or Rome when it comes to tone.The Titus Pullo fight is one I like but I can't really say that I think it's that much better than what I saw in GoT. He throws someone on a spear with way too little leverage to actually move a big man like that, he cuts limbs far easier than it should be, and so on. Now I can stop being critical when I actually watch the shows but when I try to be critical I see quite a lot of inaccuracies in all stage fighting as I have many years of competitive experience in martial arts. It's all about suspending my disbelief in order to be able to be entertained for me and that's what I try to focus on since finding errors is just annoying. GoT certainly has it's share of problems as well but not enough to make it harder for me to get into it than other shows. Mileage always varies of course.
