In an effort to see all of the cheesy and bad movies out there I of course had to see Dungeons and Dragons the Movie. Well, I wasn’t disappointed on the cheese and bad factor.
The dialogue was so weak and forced it made William Shatner groan. [was an Oscar winner, wasn’t he? One would have thought that he wouldn’t be seen in anything so bad. I guess that him and [url=http://us.imdb.com/Name?Palance,+Jack]Jack Palance](http://us.imdb.com/Name?Irons,%20JeremyJeremy Irons[/url) are following the same career path since good ol’ Jack was in Hawk the Slayer which was yet another cheesy movie. However, Hawk the Slayer rocked and was unintentionally funny whereas Dungeons and Dragons the Movie was more of a groaner.
When the main characters were running around doing stuff I could only think, what are they, like third level? Magic Users can’t cast that spell. OMG! This is bad, it seems that they tried to conform the rules of the game into one cheesy movie. It looks like WoTC tried to make it into an extended commercial… not that it surprises me since I read the Annotated Dragonlance Chronicles.
When Snails died I laughed. It was so not sad. You would think someone who had the chosen profession of being a burglar wouldn’t be nearly so stupid or clumsy. I swear that he bumped and fell into almost everything and touched all the magical alarm things.
Oh well. Time to find another cheesy movie…hopefully a funny one next time.
