What is your favourite film/TV adaptation of the King Arthur legend? Can't Post

There have been many attempts to bring the legendary King to life, some of which have been brilliant, and some of which have been...well cringe-worthy to say the least. Which one is your favourite?

My personal favourite is Excalibur, mostly because of the performance given by Nicol Williamson in the role of Merlin, who gives us a very different wizard: no white-bearded angelic figure, rather that of a mysterious and occasionally humorous riddler who always seems to be playing a deeper game. He is perfectly matched by Helen Mirren's Morgana, and their real-life dislike for one another turns into a gripping on-screen rivalry.

I have listed some of the more well-known films/series made on the subject, but as always there is an "other" option if you prefer one not listed.
