    I've worked with Bob - truly, one of the last of the old school.

    I agree with Ring of Steel; great mix of western and eastern swrodfighting with tributes ot Frazetta or Boris paintings, and Hollywood swashbucklers.
    YouTube- Ring Of Steel(1994)

    The Swordsman is pretty hokey but has some nice action
    YouTube- THE SWORDSMAN - Trailer (1993)

    The sequel, Gladiator Cop, has a greater mix of martial arts styles, but is even more hokey that the previous film. They reuse some footage, forget that a suypporting character died, and can't even do math. James Hong, as the reincarnation of someone killed by Alexander the Great, says he's been waiting for "1,700 years." I guess that means he wasn't waiting for about 600 more years.

    And of course the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies have loads of great fencing and musket action in them, about with the same balance of screen time as any Kung Fu flick.

    The Duellists is currently on Netflix watch instantly.

    Braveheart was not realistic in it's history but in it's depiction of combat. And even that I qualified with "by Hollywood standards."

    Princess Bride is movie swashbuckling, not realistic swordplay. HOWEVER, they do name drop some real Renaissance fencing masters in their fight.

    Highlander is awesome, just because it's Highlander.

    Were I ever to require a walk out song (something sadly lacking in Judo tournaments, imo), that would be it. You'd have to edit it, of course, so that you hit the guitar solo/bridge as you entered the cage.

    Arn – The Knight Templar, looked good to my admittedly untrained eye.
