8.1: How about including a list of well-costumed, atmospheric
movies that people could rent to see what a particular
period might be like? If a picture is worth a thousand words,
a moving picture is worth ten thousand!

Done. Following is a list of movies, separated into the following
time periods: Early Medieval (500 to @1050 AD), Middle Ages (1050 to
@1450 AD), and Renaissance (1450 to 1600 AD). An exclamation point
(!) indicates that the movie contains a wedding scene.
