The Rotoscopers head back to medieval times to discover King Arthur, the Knights of the Round Table and a really bizarre movie, Quest for Camelot.

Highlights

  • Main Discussion: Quest for Camelot (1998)
  • Morgan has faint memories of seeing this with Chelsea, but...remembers nothing of the film.
  • The movie poster turned Morgan off.
  • This is an example of what happens when oblivious executives meddle in a film.
  • The music suffers. What is it trying to be? Serious? Comical? A musical?
  • Gandondorf aka Ruber: "Now all of Hyrule knows you are here."
  • Garett: He has a bird companion who is not evil!
  • The conjoined twin dragons are the worst part of this film. Why the goofy, obnoxious song?
  • Why do animated films feel the need to dumb it down?
  • What we (and our Twitter followers)would have done to make this movie better.
  • Voicemail & emails: Jaclyn, Vishal, Joshua, Dan, Holly, Phoebe, Kristopher, Karifa.
  • Don't forget to buy the Rotoscopers T-shirt!
