Just putting this one out there. I remember it being in theaters, but have yet to see it (will soon, it's on the Encore schedule), but I wanted to throw it out there since Stallone will soon become king of HDTGM: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6UNQB1Lo1s
From IMDB: "After the untimely death of a jousting knight in the middle of a match, the knight's peasant squire William Thatcher dons the dead knight's armor and with the help of his two friends complete the match and wins the jousting tournament. As the trio leave the tournament and head home, Will convinces the two friends that he can change his stars by entering other jousting tournaments and becoming a real knight. Geoffrey Chaucer an unknown writer who they meet along the road agrees to forge Will's papers of royal genealogy and becomes his Herald. This starts them on a journey filled with deception, peril, love and failure as Will meets a beautiful princess, faces a most daunting and evil jousting opponent and forces Will to comes to grips with his humble beginnings" I heard that this was supposed to be as serious as "Moulin Rouge" - a modern rock opera about knights and jousting! The anachronisms are amazing, and laugh out loud funny, even when they aren't meant to be. Alan Tudyk's character is absolutely insane! And Chaucer's character is naked for much of the movie (classic HDTGM fodder). This is one of my personal favorites but I am well aware that it is madness most of the time! I'd love to hear these 3 talk about it.
