Ahistorical films?[edit]

This article currently contains a list of 'ahistorical films'. I'm not sure this belongs here, as I don't think we have sources specifically describing them as 'ahistorical'. However, if it is worth keeping it's only in the cut-down form I reduced it to, rather than the longer list that was previously here. Films which are based on specific historical events, such as U-571, Braveheart and Pearl Harbour, are by definition not 'ahistorical', even if they are historically inaccurate. 'Ahistorical', as the article explains, refers to things which lack any sense of historical context at all. Given that most of the article is about ahistoricalism in academia, the list of films seems like a tangent and perhaps should be removed altogether. Robofish (talk) 17:43, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

I agree. Being bold and removing it - been no objections in the intervening years, apparently. 107.179.255.210 (talk) 07:35, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
