Toxic Masculinity Film Festival: #2 — “Gladiator” (2000)

Ben DaviesRebel Host | Rebel Reel Reviews


Gladiator comes in at #2 in my masculine movie countdown.

It’s the perfect epic that demonstrates the difference between earning and being entitled as seen in the lead characters.

Maximus is a great leader loved and admired by the men who willingly follow him while Commodus is the eternal “soy boy.”

Great men are remembered for eternity because of the accomplishments they earned.

Space Moose, perhaps that second horse was the Senator appointed by Caligula. (Yes, Caligula did appoint a horse to the Senate). You know…. a government representative to make his resignation official. Just a thought. The horse would be a hell of a lot brighter than most government bureaucrats I know.

There is one part of the movie that does not make any sense to me. After Max escapes from being executed he goes straight to his home. He is riding on a horse, but he takes a second horse with him. Nobody is riding that second horse. Can somebody here please tell me why Max needs a second horse?

Jihadi Justin is Canada’s “Soy Boy” demanding power he is not entitled to, nor fit for.
