From what I remember, Tim Burton did some initial work on The Black Culdron, but the animation department at Disney didn't like the direction the project was going and there was a mutual parting of ways.
And speaking of awful medieval movies; who can forget the worst of them all: Black Knight! http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0265087/?fr=c2l0ZT1kZnxteD0yMHxzZz0xfGxtPTIwMHx0dD1vbnxwbj0wfHE9YmxhY2sga25pZ2h0fGh0bWw9MXxubT1vbg__;fc=1;ft=20;fm=1
Can you believe that somebody actually gave this one the green light! Now that I think about it, the historical liberties taken in Braveheart don't seem so bad after all.
Is this Castle real? It looked real.

Seven Samurai(1954) a great film that everybody should see.
Clearly you didn't go through everyone's list because if you look at the third message in this thread you'll see that I mention it. My usual comments to the films you list so the Great Unwashed know what they are in for....
Sinbad: You gotta commit to some specific verions.
I thought this movie was based on a legend. But you do have people gliding threw the air like leaves. So maybe it's legend/fantasy.Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon(2000): Tragedy makes fantasy respectable (this, Hero, Lord of the Rings). Wonderfully acted (even the english language version, since the stars do their own voices), exciting action. Needs a little bit of editing, but a great story.

Timeline: The book that convinced me not to ever bother with Michael Crichton again.
I did enjoy the movie Timeline a lot better than the book (but Paul Walker is miscast as anything but a high-school dropout surfer-dude).
