Indeed, with the incoming round of shitty arthurian legend movies, I always return to this.

The only Sword In The Stone I've seen has been the animated on by Disney.
Monty Python so permanently altered the perception of Arthurian legend that anything afterwards will forever be tainted by their influence.
this movie got me into Wagner too
Yeah there is really no other film like this.
When I first saw it, the only thing that I remembered was Arthur's dad dressed in full armor putting it to Arthur's mom. I sort of imagined there was a manhole cover down there, something you'd pry off with a small crowbar or screwdriver. The mechanics of the whole thing baffled me.
Years later, I watched the movie again and was struck by how it attempted to present things in a quasi-realistic fashion, something quite novel for a fantasy film of that period. It made an otherwise boring genre film fun and occasionally thought provoking.
This, Highlander, Dragonslayer, Legend and the original cut of Blade Runner fall under my all time favorite beautiful messes of movies.
Excalibur is gorgeous to look at but there are some weird tonal issues and casting choices. Not bad, just weird.
Dune is the King of hot messes
Yeah, I actually thought about Dune 5 seconds after posting.
What was it about 1980-1985 that was a golden era for this sort of thing?
Purple Cat, Patrick Stewart the common factor.
i love the heck out of this movie
