The legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table receives its most impressive screen treatment in Excalibur, from visionary director John Boorman (Deliverance, Hope and Glory).

Let's hope they remaster the video and the audio instead of using the HD master from the HD-DVD (which was notably inferior, especially by today's standards); this film deserves it. Then again, since they botched even high profile titles like Gladiator and The Last of the Mohicans the chances of... Read More
