The first time I watched Excalibur I thought his portrayal of Merlin was over the top cheesy but later I kinda loved it.

Personally, I never much liked him as an actor as it felt that he always overacted and hurt the source. A lot of this stems from him doing The Scotish Play that I saw in class a while back, but it does serve true for most stuff I saw him in. Coincidentially, I just watched Return to Oz for the first time in 20 years a few weeks ago and thought he was quite good in that.

What is the Scottish Play?
Ars superior est vita hominum.
"We pop out and come into the world and music is there. We didn't invent it - it's all organised in the atmosphere by divinity or whatever. It's a miracle." - John Williams-
I think music is a stream of some kind. It could be blood. It could be water. It could be ether. Whatever it is it seems to be a living, organic force that’s in motion, that serves humanity and is part of humanity and part of what describes us as humans. We sing, play, dance, all the things that we do. And there is a vibrant and great literature we have been given. ... As musicians, we join the stream. We swim in the stream with all the other millions of music makers. It’s a life force, a strong one, surrounding us and we are part of it. -John Williams-
