I like seeing medieval setting for films, even though they aren't usually all that accurate (they certainly aren't common). I just saw The Reckoning and The Messenger - two different films set in medieval times. The Reckoning is about a troupe of players and The Messenger is about Jeanne d'Arc. They were both pretty whacky, but reasonably enjoyable.
There was a comment on The Messenger saying it was creepy, and I thought ?? but it is creepy - it's like the Pan's Labyrinth/kitchen sink version of her story with Dustin Hoffman and a lot of squealing. It featured a lot of nice horseflesh, which kept me interested. And nice costumes. The Reckoning is a fairly thin plot, the kind of thing that feels more like television than a film, but I enjoyed it well enough. They both had Vincent Cassel, whose nose I particularly admire.
