    He has lacked “The gentlemen of the square table and his crazy followers” of Monty Python: does not he believe?
    A greeting

    I have quoted it in the introduction and have told why it was not including it. It is the best, undoubtedly :)

    I will have seen like 20 times (and I do not exaggerate …) that of Robin Hood of Kevin Costner. I have no remedy. I love the Middle Age, and the movies, it is strange that it has not seen most of the pelis that you mention. I sign up it ;)

    I also love the Middle Age for influence of my readings of Captain Trueno :)

    Of the list, there are essential someone, like Robin of 1938 with Errol Flynn, The Hawk and the arrow, the two of Robert Taylor and the violent one The Vikings, that it is tremendous.

    Nevertheless, if I had to remain with only one of the list, it would be wonderful Lady Halcón.

    I have just seen the list and, in general, I am enough in agreement. Of course: of objetivismos, not at all! If THE KINGDOM OF THE SKIES (that I have not seen) is bad: since to take it! I believe that I also would remove ROBIN HOOD, PRINCE OF THE THIEVES, who with the exception of the presence, always unpayable, of Sean Connery, and of the most beautiful image of the acantalidados of Dover, does not contribute anything, to me to seem.

    You have to include, without absence, ROBIN AND MARIAN. If you have seen it, you will understand why I say it.

    And certainly, since it appears THE GENTLEMEN OF KING ARTURO, there has to appear also, without absence, CAMELOT of Joshua Logan, who is a musical, yes, but also of adventures. And that is, in my opinion, one of more beautiful movies that have never been rolled. And if you like really really the legends artúricas, also you will understand why I say it.

    And I go to think in a few more.

    Well Carlos, I agree in everything with you.
    I suppose that habrás I dress the last one of King Arturo, the real history or lake like that, in the actor protagonist Clive Owen, and that not the habrás included in the list for relating it with the epoch of the Romans. I love. This actor in this role in with a pélicula also made, they would fix Captain Trueno.
    A greeting,
