Don't miss our monthly fantasy/sci-fi series, Robots vs. Unicorns!

Excalibur is a visually stunning epic which retells the story of Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, shot entirely on location in Ireland. The magical sword of Excalibur is in the hands of Uther Pendragon (Gabriel Byrne), and years later is in the possession of his bastard son Arthur (Nigel Terry). With the help of the sorcerer Merlin (Nicol Williamson), Arthur has to go to Camelot and bring together the Knights of the Round Table to bring the country together. Although it is already no easy task, there are several hurdles for Arthur to overcome before he can successfully unify the country with the Knights.

Excalibur is a brilliant flick laden with '80s escapist charm, which effortlessly allows the audience to get wrapped into the classic tale. With supporting performances by the likes of Helen Mirren, Patrick Stewart, Liam Neeson and more, this movie is begging for a big screen re-watch, because in and of itself it is larger than life. This is a perfect viewing for anyone who revels in the fantasy genre and its unprecedented ability to take us to different worlds.
