I assume the longbow is good agaisnt most armor, near useless agaisnt plate armor, this test (http://www.currentmiddleages.org/artsci/docs/Champ_Bane_Archery-Testing.pdf) seem to agree, basically, the reason they have it is because not every has properp late armor, at least that's my assumption.

Even if a needle bodkin goes through plate like butter at the right angle, it will bounce in 95% of the cases, because the angle is almost never right in a battle. Remember, plate armor is not a plane perpendicular to the arrow shot.

One factor is that the English had the advantage in terrain. the French column advanced through thick mud and woodland, cost them stamina when they got to the English knights meeting them...flanked by archers on both sides (protected by stakes against cavalry)

Winning against the odds and outnumbered always make it into popular culture :D

The one thing the longbow was very good at was shutting down the enemy archers/xbows because the English just had more of them And more importantly imo was pretty much neutralizing the french cav. You can not charge cav across the battlefield into that many archers. The horses would be cut to pieces and then you reach stakes.

the commander guy was a commander til he got an arrow to the knee, he then became a not-commander commander and screwed up because lighting got him when he stroke a pose for a selfie while his horse tried to eat a stone off of a dead soldier's sword

1) Defending against the French
2) Small professional veteran army(which had to fight or die) vs a Hastily formed up coalition of French Nobles.
3) Defenders had gradual incline advantage with deep mud and stakes.
4) The dreaded longbow
5) French leadership and battle strategy was not existent as they traditionally relied on overwhelming numbers
and brute strength to win battles.

They really need to make an updated movie on this epic struggle.

Irrelevant, everyone hates the English. Even your own neighbours, they probably more than anyone.
