Season of the Witch

I just watched the movie Season of the Witch with Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman. I liked it a lot, though it certainly wasn't perfect. In any case, if you are a fan of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplaying, you should watch this movie. It's pretty much a perfect fit.

Dark woods, knights, knaves, and evil magic are all present. A witch is escorted in a cage/wagon to her trial at a monastery. She uses magic to foil her guardians (or maybe she's an innocent being framed).

Some of the special effects weren't great, but I liked the combat scenes, and the banter between the various characters.

It got raked over the coals in initial reviews (some of which made me wonder if the reviewers had even seen the film, but it did it's job, it's an okay flick and doesn't have a typical Hollywood ending.
