      You ain’t wrong.

      Edit: Exception being if it has a subtitle, of course. I.E. 2001: A Space Odyssey.

    Nice, I enjoy historical movies (or what you call them). Naval movies/shows being one of my favourites, Master and Commander, The Terror, North Waters etc. Hope this turns out great! :D
