The Spartans weren't thrusting because they were using the Kopis sword in these scenes and not the Xiphos sword. How much of a sword expert is this guy??? As an alternative to the xiphos some Spartans selected the dreaded Kopis as their secondary weapon. This was a vicious hacking weapon in the form of a thick, curved iron sword. Warriors would use this weapon more as an axe then a sword, inflicting nasty wounds compared to the cleaner holes made by the spear and xiphos. This weapon was seen as the quintessential "bad guys" weapon in ancient Greece. Athenian art frequently depicted Spartan warriors with this weapon for that reason.

Never a good idea to throw a sword? Such lack of experience and imagination... I can think of many situations where you should throw your sword. For example, let's say a crazy rich dude tells you: "Listen, if you throw this sword over there, I'll give you 5 million dollars". If your sword is on fire, it would probably also be a good idea to throw it, maybe. Or if you're hurt and can't move and that's your last chance to protect somebody you love, I don't know. I think you people should come over here and watch this "specialists watching stuff" with me telling on their mistakes, because I'm a specialist on being a specialist.

A katana doesn’t go [shing], but a shashka certainly does. I just opened up mine with a satisfying [shing]. Perhaps they overdub the sound, as the metal spine of the shashka sliding against the metal scabbard does have a satisfying and menacing sound. Okay, I seriously doubt you could stab a katana in a wall and jump on it without breaking the sword, the wall, or both. I mean, yeah it’s possible to step lightly on something while jumping, but she uses it to spring up.

At 2:00. This is one of the few times it actually makes sense that they specifically hit each other in the armor rather than in the flesh. Here it make sense specifically because they are gladiators. Spectacle was part of how gladiators were trained and expected to fight. It wasn't just enough that you win, you had to be entertaining when you did it. So, as I understand it, gladiators did alot of show boat and just for show moves and tactics. In fact, as I understand, if you won to quick you yourself might be executed for ruining the game.

Viggo Mortenson was trained by Bob Anderson, a guy who has literally trained most of Hollywood from Errol Flynn to the Star Wars movies. He said that Viggo was one of the most proficient swordsmen he had even had the pleasure of training. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0026428/ Reads like a bible of movie sword fights :-)

I think one of the biggest facts you're neglecting is that the Uruk-Hai armor is pretty flimsy, basically just common metal, whereas Aragorn's sword is special fantasy metal, and isn't really burdened by basic sword fighting techniques as a result. I wouldn't rate a literal fantasy movie with magical and special metals based on our techniques. :P

B.T.W. when using katana swords you parry you have to parry with the flat side or the back of the sword or the hard edge will break. SIDENOTE: I’m wrong and also a sword might make the sound when the scabbard is made of metal.

You can Parry with the edge historically was done, the myth that it was never done comes from the other myth that the material they use was bad. Part one of a three-part article to debunk that. https://gunbai-militaryhistory.blogspot.com/2018/02/iron-and-steel-technology-in-japanese.html?m=1

Issue with swords in films are they are dangerous. Even dulled they can still cut when swung with speed, tips are still sharp generally, and if the blade snaps it'll become like a razor. All this means sword fights generally have large telegraphed swinging cuts and exchanges happen out of striking range so if some one misses a block they don't get cracked in the temple by a fast moving then piece of metal.

Berates films for unrealistic sword fighting then picks sword fight where they had 88 against 1 (and being defeated) with lots of wirework as the most realistic. The fight with Aragorn vs the army of Uruk-Hai is much more realistic than the Kill Bill scene. He's delaying the Uruk-Hai so Frodo can escape. He's swinging wildly and inaccurately in order to engage as many of them at the same time and block them from going past him - his move is purely a delaying tactic. Notice how they cut that scene long before they get to the final fight between Aragorn and the head Uruk-Hai? And the double sword beheading scene was all about Maximus deliberately being theatrical due to his disgust at the audience's love of gore and death. I really wish people would stop worshipping at the altar of Quentin Tarantino. Yeah Kill Bill has some good fight scenes but it does feature the "death touch move" as well. Somehow I doubt the validity of this man's "expertise"...... And where the f*** is Shogun Assassin, Troy, The Duelists, etc? A very cherrypicked list.
