Popcorn Culture - Throwback Tuesday: Gladiator

General. Slave. Gladiator who defied an emperor. Movie that won Russell Crowe an Oscar. In this episode, we revisit 'Gladiator' - one of the finest movies from the year 2000. The film also cemented Russell Crowe, Joaquin Phoenix, and composer Hans Zimmer as Hollywood gold. We discuss Gladiator's pop culture impact, how a slew of copycat films tried to replicate its success, and why the story of Maximus Decimus Meridius still resonates with us to this day.

Produced by: Arvindh Yuvaraj, Lee Chwi Lynn, Sharmilla Ganesan
