When the Seeker movie came out on Hbo last month I was planning on seeing it anyway.  Then I saw the behind the scenes stuff on a Seeker Series.  I was talking above in reference to TV series.  The movie was as far as I can tell totally opposite.  Young kid.  TV older guy maybe mid-20s.  I think its 2 distinct universes as plot is a bit different and may have been tweaked for the series.  But so far the TV series is the best for pnp fans.  The magic alone is something to awe at.  It may be hard to find but you can yahoo it on their tv guide or something.  Legend of the Seeker.  

As far as movies you named all good ones though I vaguely recall Rob-roy....  I like fantasy movies but none have come too cose to pnp for me.  I suppose movie wise I'd have to say Hobbit, maybe lord of the rings.  

TV series theres a few like Xena, Hercules and Seeker (teh best).  Oddly the same guy did all three.
