Though there are many great wizard battles in cinema, only one stands out in my mind as embodying everything that wizarding represents. I'm speaking of the great, bizarre battle between the good and evil wizards (Vincent Price and Boris Karloff, respectively) in Roger Corman's 1963 classic The Raven. It's funny and packed with cheese (as you can see in this clip), but by the end it's actually become a seriously intense magic fight with blobs of energy swirling around and lives on the line.
