I agree with Cellardoor that as long as a story is coherent and true to the rules of its own universe it's fine. I really don't mind a little bending of the truth for the sake of better storytelling.

Having said that, I do enjoy a story that brings to life a true historical setting in an accurate way. I absolutely adore Steven Saylor's ancient Roman novels for example. At the same time, I can thoroughly enjoy a film like Gladiator because it captures the spirit of the time, eventhough it seriously alters history.
