'Movies Like Beowulf': Vikings on the War Path

Few things would have been more terrifying than the sight of a viking longboat cutting through the mist towards your sleepy sea-side village. Luckily, Scandinavians are now a peaceful, well coiffed bunch, and we can observe the viking culture without fear of decapitation.

'Movies Like The Lord of the Rings': Modern High-Medieval Fantasy

Modern movies in the vein of LOTR: set in imaginary worlds and defined by the epic scale of their storyline and characters. Be warned the path from here to LARPing may be deceptively short and comfortable.

'Movies Like Gladiator': Hollywood in Sword and Sandals

Ancient war and action movies, in the vein of 'Gladiator' and '300': ancient heroes duking it out against mythological monsters, Persians, and wooly mammoths. Check out our 'Great Medieval Action' list for similar themes set at a later date.

'Movies Like Kingdom of Heaven': Action-Packed Medieval Grit

Movies in the vein of 'King Arthur': gritty action set in the Middle Ages (or thereabouts). Gone are the chivalry filled Arthurian adventures of the 70s and 80s; the medieval epic of today is gritty, dark, and littered with hacked off limbs!

'Movies Like Constantine': Fantasy Served Dark

One of the worst collections you could ever watch with a friend on LSD: these post 2000 flicks delve into the darkest recesses of the human psyche, through fantastic imagery and nightmarish storylines.

'Movies like Stardust': Epic Fantasy Flicks

Experience the miracle of imagination on the big-screen with such multi-million dollar fantasy franchises as 'Chronicles of Narnia' and 'Harry Potter'. Will have you sprinting into train-station walls at full pelt!

Angelina Jolie Action

Impossibly sexy, built like an amazonian, and apparently immune to the effects of aging - Angelina Jolie is one of those women who you can't imagine existing anywhere other than the big-screen. But that's exactly what makes her so appealing as an action star. It's not unrealistic when you see her shoot three henchmen dead between the eyes, because you already believe she can do anything!
