Come, villainy. Death awaits you.

Dungeons and Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God

Chosen by Owen Todd who had this to say about it: 'This film is so bad it has to be seen to be believed. The first film was pretty bad, but at least it didn't try to take itself seriously! The main reason for reccomending this film is to increase Dave's knowledge of his target market...honest!'

On days like these I wonder if I will make it through a month of a new film a day, let alone a year. Like a crappy, overly serious, way too long episode of Xena this film just kinda exists to give Dungeons and Dragons nerds a couple of in jokes to 'laugh' at (well exhibit acknowledgement of anyway, nothing here is actually funny) so they can claim it is better than the first one.
When Bruce Payne is the 'biggest' name you have, you may be in trouble.
And so ends my mini Dungeons and Dragons theme for the blog, thank god.
If I never see a really crappy rendering of a dragon fire-balling villagers, over and over and over, again it would be too soon.

I really need to see a good film tonight.


  1. That's just mean! Are you regretting saying you'd watch whatever you were given yet?

  2. I regret nothing. But it is quite exhausting.

  3. I saw that film on TV the other day actually.. was quite shoddy, although i liked the little aspects of the littler things you see/do in game

    Could i make a few suggestions? 500 days of summer, Donnie Brasco, Stand By Me, Secret Window, Groundhog day, Lost in Translation

    I presume you've seen most of them, if not all, but i thought better to be save than sorry.. again

  4. yeah seen all of those except secret window (wasn't massively keen on the novella it's based on)

  5. Jeez, thats the second load i recommended..
    Ah thats fair enough about Secret Window..

    You have seen quite a few films, try one more recommendation list for now..

    Scorched, The Bucket List, Big Nothing, From Hell, Finder's Fee, Vantage Point

  6. He has to watch Bucket List, that's one of the films I'm thinking of lending him next month.

    Absolutely hated Vantage Point.

    David - We have new DVDs, obviously a load from the AFI list, but also Ghost in the Shell, Them! and The Crying Game. Seen them?

  7. the giant ant them? lauren just lent me the french horror film them today but not seen the ant one.
    seen the others except bucket list, finder's fee and scorched.

  8. Yep, giant ant THEM!“A horror horde of crawl-and-crush giants clawing out of the earth from mile-deep catacombs!”
