Excalibur

Excalibur ★★

Faithful to the legends, I assume, but on screen it's incredibly bombastic and lacking in self-awareness. The production design is ambitious but too pleased with itself; there's a neon green motif throughout that dates the aesthetic very poorly, and the apparently significant expense invested in the armor is extensively and comically flaunted—you get that these knights of the roundtable showered, shaved and shat wearing this stuff. None of the cast do well with the overwrought dialogue, either.
