Best films set in the middle ages

Add a list or tag with showdown:middleages

Saxons, Vikings, Romans and Celts, oh my! Bring out the long ships, because this Showdown is a reckoning of the best films made about the middle ages. Whether early, high or late, make an ironclad list of ten films that do the best job of bringing light to the dark ages: the bloody raids and village sackings, looting and pillaging, outlanders and aliens, dragon-trainers and dragon-slayers, flying daggers and ladyhawkes, barbarians and pathfinders, pagan poetics, Scandi scandals, armies of darkness, and the fury of the Northmen. What a time to be alive!
