SCAdian MOVIES: THE ANCIENT WORLD


If you found yourself here, CLICK HERE to go to the updated version of this page

Many people assume that the SCA period does not go farther back than the fall of Rome. However, the influence of Rome, Greece, and the rest of the ancient world on medieval society and culture is undeniable. Also, a lot of these movies have battle scenes and sword fights.

HOW TO USE THE MARKINGS:

! = a definite must-see for anyone with SCA related interests.

+ = good to see if you've already seen or if you can't find the must-sees.

% = either a weak movie with a SCA-related theme, or a good movie of limited SCA-related interest.

- = only for the most desparate completist.

I have reviewed some of these films on Amazon.com and Allwatchers.com. You can go to the reviews by clicking on the "AMZ" for Amazon and the "ALW" for Allwatchers.
