Just came across this BBC series on youtube... it's pretty old so I'm sure a lot of you have seen it already, but for those that haven't it might suit your taste, so I thought I'd share... :mrgreen:
It's not great, but it's watchable  :D The nice thing is it's posted by BBC on Youtube so there is no need to pirate it and there are many more episodes!
(click to show/hide)

I'm in need of new shows/movies to pirate...
Please recommend/share some movies and shows!
Doesn't have to be strictly Medieval themes... but try to keep suggestions to swords/armor type stuff   :D
I'll be updating the list with people's suggestions, for my own use.
Some of these I've definitely seen, but most I have yet to... great suggestions thus far.

Flesh and Blood
Il Mestiere delle Armi (The Profession of Arms)
Centurion

Edit: and try to find the extended version of Kingdom of Heaven. It's adding +50% awesomeness to the movie!


The Eagle - Starts really strong, then getting weaker and weaker. Still worth a watch

The Last Legion - Collin Firth (Mr. D'arcy) as hard guy, I think he was even Arthur in this adaption. Seriously? Fighting orientalic women, bad costumes and a rather lame story. Don't expect it to be anything more than "not really boring". But I liked Kevin McKidd as Teuton.

Alexander - nicely done, quite homoerotic, but it has its lenghtes. On the other hand the two battles are truly amazing, especially Gaugamela, causing me goosebumps every time I watch it. 

13th warrior - bullshit story, but damn! This movie is a single slaughtering fest, and thus really entertaining. Take care you pirate an uncut version!

Robin Hood: prince of thieves - Oh well, a rather mediocre Robin Hood flick. Alan Rickman saved that movie.

Robin Hood (2010) - Optically it's an awesome movie, the armours are as amazing as they were in Kingdom of Heaven, but still this movie is quite a good bit worse. Especially when Kate Blanchett as lady Marion rides into battle (!!!) in full armour (!!!) with a sallet with visor (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!). After she killed a French infantryman during a battle in a village by gently pulling a sword over his aketon, apparently somehow cutting his stomach.

The Last Legion - This movie is bad, don't honour it by listing it twice!  :P

First Kyeldurht - Oh! My! God! This movie is SO GAY, it LITERALLY sucks. After watching it you will feel the urge to take a long, long shower to wash that impression of that movie off you, but you won't succeed. Pussies will start to disgust you, and soon enough you will be craving for a nice, thick cock. Don't watch it. Seriously, don't. If you are curious about what I am telling you, watch a trailer, it should be enough. It still counts as "gay experience", so whenever you will do some kind of test in a magazine or something like that, and it asks you "Did you have any homosexual experiences?", you can't check "no" any more.

Agora - well made, entertaining and informative movie, which makes you hate religion even more. A good one, has my recommendation.

Arthur - Since it's missing but also fitting to the other movies you listed here, I am adding it now and I have to say: it's very similar to the Last Legion. It's bad. Owen Wilson isn't the prototype of a hard guy either, whereas Till Schweiger as son of the Saxon king is downright laughable. But Stellan Skarsgard is doing a proper job and is a truly fearsome Saxon king. The only entertaining character in this 100%-Hollywood-bullshit-movie.

Kyeldurhts of the Teutonic Order (Krzyżacy) 1960

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0054004/

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPPMcTczdlY example

Action in medieval Poland and 'Great Lithuania' from early 15th century. One of oldest and best polish historical movies. What can i say? Good battle scenes , armies looking bigger than they really are (camera trick).

On top of those already mentioned few good TV shows: Borgias, Tudors and Vikings(duh, who hasn't watched this already). There's also a new series that started recently called White Queen, I've heard it's quite good. It's set up in roughly the same period as Tudors.

Some movies that haven't been mentioned are Alatriste, Black Death(it's not that bad) and Reclaiming the Blade which is more of a documentary but still very well worth watching.

I loved Spartacus... You are talking about the first one right? blood and sand.
Was such a good story of betrayal and revenge, and I thought most of the cast nailed it on the acting.

That movie should be 10/10 Kingdom of heaven best medieval warfare movie!!  :wink:
Also this ^  :mrgreen:

To each his own though.  :wink:

Wat.

IMO, eventhough it's a pretty simple movie it's one of my favourite movies. I probably watched it over 10 times and scenes on Youtube ~50 times. It never gets boring and I can watch it any day :D

Spartacus  :lol:

I dont know about that series, I really really enjoyed it but...It´s just so extreme, you know...

You constantly see cocks and tits and naked oily men with sixpacks, then there are those gays making out all the time...all the while they keep on showing all that slaughter xD It´s way too much so it becomes ridiculous.

Seriously, I waited the whole series for some of the slaves starting a giant gangbang on a pile of massacred romans.


This show is extremely gay, straight and very manly at the same time.

I would reccomend watching it with a few buddys and some drink or weed, you´ll have the time of your life.Very funny and the slaughter is enjoyable.

But dont forget to turn you eyes away and yell "fuck this shit" everytime you see a cock or gay interaction or you might wake up in the yeldurht craving for some sweaty slave dick.
Maybe it woud be better for me to find out where you life and kill you when you are satch a Soziopath. You have enough now.
