4Gradalis - A quest for the best King Arthur Movie
List creator: hamano
Created on: September 19, 2003 - 7:25 PM PDT
Description: Yes, Gradalis, I was the one who posted that question, not so long ago. Your reply sent me into a reverie of the echoes of coconut hooves, galloping down memory lane. Additional suggestions welcome!

Knightriders (1981)
  No flesh-eating zombies here. A strangely contemplative film about American BIKERS who playact the Arthurian legend. Gore makeup king Tom Savini doesn't have much to do here, so he plays Morgan (not in drag)! A young Ed Harris is SO very noble...
Perceval (1979)
Not Rated
  My favorite. Rocking soundtrack! Crawling with Boticellic French beauties! It's like a medieval beer (or mead, I guess) commercial. La Pucelle de la Tente and La Pucelle qui rit are especially HOT! The Grail looks like a lamp from IKEA.
Parsifal (Disc 1 of 2) (1982)
Not Rated
Parsifal (Disc 2 of 2) (1982)
Not Rated
  A 2 DVD operatic bladder buster! At one point our heroes camp out in Wagner's nostrils (part of the set is a humongous replica of the composer's death mask). Directed by Hans-Jurgen Syberberg who also did the 450min. Our Hitler: A Film from Germany
Sailor Moon S: Heart Collection I (1994)
  The Sailor Senshi battle over possession of the Holy Grail itself against the evil forces who want to resurrect Pharaoh 90! The best Sailor Moon season on six DVDs.
Monty Python and the Holy Grail (Collector's Edition) (1974)
  Another French take on the Arthurian legend, you should rent this masterpiece immediately if you don't already own it! Fetchez la vache!
Monty Python and the Holy Grail (Bonus Disc) (1974)
  Finally a bonus disc that's worth renting! Includes a quest undertaken by the now rather elderly pythons Terry Jones and Michael Palin to revisit some of the locations (which nearly kills them). A Camelot musical number is faithfully redone using LEGOs!
Excalibur (1981)
  John Boorman's visionary extravaganza cursed us forever with CarminaBurana abuse (b-movies, commercials). Orff's music was set to the poetry of the Goliards, vagabond medieval students who'd want nothing to do with a round table unless it was in a tavern.
Sword of Lancelot (1963)
  Same source material as Excalibur, Sir Thomas Malory's Le Morte D'Arthur. That's all I know. They better not have abused Tomaso Albinoni's Adagio again!
Camelot (1967)
  Hey, when he was younger, Dumbledore could sing! But unfortunately MacARTHUR Park is not included in the extras.
The Mists of Avalon (2001)
Not Rated
  A feminine perspective on the whole Arthurian legend. Based on Marion Zimmer Bradley's novel.
Merlin (1998)
Not Rated
  Star studded TV miniseries. Very pretty. John Gielgud in one of his last roles. And Helena Bonham Carter is always so excellently amusing.
First Knight (1995)
  Is ultimate Bond Sean Connery also the ultimate King Arthur, or the ultimate Robin Hood, or all of the above? Would Julia Ormond really leave him for Richard Gere? Nah!
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)
  James Bond meets the Grail again, but this time he's Indy Jones' dad. Much better than Temple of Doom but that's not saying much. Thanks to hneline1 for suggesting this title!
The Sword in the Stone (45th Anniversary) (Special Edition) (1963)
  All legends have to start somewhere. I saw this playing on Channel 54 once at 2 AM, punctuated with commercials for Girls Gone Wild and Hot Girls are Waiting for your Call!...
Merlin: The Return
Not Rated
  Tia Carrere, the total babe from Wayne's World, plays scientist Joan Maxwell who resurrects Merlin, Arthur and pals to fight Mordred 1500 years after the days of the Round Table.
Arthur's Quest (1999)
  Another "time slip" tale, which explains that Merlin kept Arthur safe from Morgana between ages 5 and 15 by sending him to 20th Century USA to become a typical teen a la 90210.
Quest For Camelot (1998)
  A young King Arthur, a two headed dragon, the voice of comic legend Don Rickles, oh, crap.... why even bother?
Arthur: Arthur's Perfect Christmas (2000)
Not Rated
  Arthur and the Knights plan for a perfect Xmas celebration at Camelot. Along the way they learn about Kwanzaa and Hanukkah. Arthur learns that he can't just impose HIS idea of Xmas on his subjects, and that proper spirits will help get any party rolling.
Ah! My Goddess!: The Movie (2001)
  My favorite appearance of the Holy Grail itself. When Belldandy, Urd and Skuld sing their healing aria to restore the Universe's OS, there it appears, in all its winged glory! Who needs those old farts Arthur, Lancelot, et al when you can have GODDESSES!
