(AFAIK, there were no Templars after 1307, right?)

We could fill another entire forum trying to answer that question. ;)

I've got the movie and it's on my watch list for tonight. I'll post thoughts about it in a few days.

Just saw this last night. I haven't seen Black Death, so I can't compare it to that, but I also saw Your Highness, and that was a flop compared to this. I enjoyed this movie quite a bit. I read a number of "down" reviews, and didn't expect much. As Sir William said, it was a bit of a change from the "usual", and to me, it was in a good way. It was interesting enough that I put down the laptop and did NOTHING but watch the movie, which is VERY out of the ordinary for me, as I tend to watch TV/websurf at the same time, or TV/games, or internet/games...

I figured Your Highness to be a spoof on medieval movies, what with that idiot playing the lead.  As I'm a Natalie Portman fan, I thought about catching it on cable when it hits OnDemand.

If you liked Season of the Witch, then I think you'll really like Black Death so go see it, lets talk.

It's definitely a spoof, and somewhat reminded me of "Scary Movie", in that I think I'm missing some of the jokes/puns by missing some of the material they're making fun of. It wasn't a terrible movie, but not something I'm likely to watch again. It's still worth a watch if you have the time and nothing else to do, and you might get all of the jokes, which I'm sure has a lot to do with the enjoyment factor.

After a quick google for Natalie Portman, she's the "second best" eye candy to the movie, to my eyes, anyway.

I'll see if I can get some time to watch Black Death later this week.

Weaponry, of course. :D

I thought the princess (I think she was?) that was involved in the wedding at the beginning was more visually appealing, but that's personal preference of course.

Count me in for the armoured movie invasion!  ;D ;D ;D

BTW, my MercTailor plate never gives me any trouble when standing, siting, or even running. I've worn it to school, around town, and at the rennfair, and had no discomfort at all!

Damn. I missed movie night. :( Luckily I saw the flick anyways!! Two thumbs up!! ;D

Yea, you're talking about Zooey Deschanel, I'm a fan of hers also.  Love that milky white skin, crystal blue eyes and flowing locks...she's a classic beauty.  Her sister Emily (Fox's Bones tv show) has more prominent features but they're both beautiful.  Zooey's new show, the New Girl is pretty funny...sorta like a reverse Three's Company.  She's got three male roommates and is a bit of a bohemian in demeanor.
