Hollywood makes quite a lot of films from the historical Catholic point-of-view. As many Americans romanticise their Spanish / French / Irish or Scottish heritage, it inevitably leads to an identification with the "English are heretics" viewpoint.
As the vatican failed to destroy England, throughout 300-odd years of turning our neighbors against us, I don't think Hollywood will succeed.
That's not to say that the English weren't vicious buggers, just that everyone else was too: and you don't get many films made about the Scotii's pogrom against the native Hebridean Picts. Or the Irish Internal wars (Brian Boru flooded a valley to kill everyone in it). That wouldn't be palatable to the masses, now, would it.
No-one's mentioned "The Patriot", have they?
Mel Gibson takes another swipe at the British.
I'm surprised that the Romans in "The Passion" didn't have plummy English drawls.
