Welcome to Librarium Online!
I know what most are thinking, "Wow the first D & D movie really sucked!"
Well, guess what?
It was entertaining to watch in the sort of way that train wrecks and automobile accidents are interesting to watch.
You dare not look away lest you miss something you probably shouldn't have wanted to see in the first place.
But here comes D & D II. Like it or not the Sci-Fi channel went and made another one and it will air this weekend.
Here's the link: http://www.scifi.com/dnd/
So prepare your barf bags and your smelling salts (in case you pass out from the reek of it!)
I for one will keep my fingers crossed that this one goes a long way towards redeeming the first.
For that matter, if it does, I will personally rename it: Dungeons & Dragons II: The Apology!
just my 2 cents.
You have angered me this day, Joker (but I don't blame you). I can't even describe the Dungeons and Dragons movie because any word I use to do so would be far too polite. It is easily one of the worst movies I have ever seen, possibly THE worst, and I like movies.
I will NOT watch this second movie because it WILL suck. There is NO way it can make amends for the awful spectacle that was the first. I want to cry right now. It is low-budget (being made by a television station), will feature ****e acting, and will, invariably, be held up against The Lord of the Rings.
Personally, I have no interest in Dungeons and Dragons anymore. I played 2nd Edition AD&D and, though I bought the 3rd Edition books, I never played a game of it. Thus, I have been out of the loop for quite a while, and I have no intention of returning. That doesn't stop me from hating this idea with a fiery passion.
I have to stop typing now because my mouth has filled with bile and I don't want to vomit on my keyboard.
i must say its got a cracking cast....
who are these people???
it would be nice if it was a 'proper' fantasy film based in the D & D universe rather than something for kids ( as the first film, and the cartoon series were) i'm not really into my roleplaying games, and you have to admit the vast majority of the population have a certain pre-conceived view of the pen and paper type RPG's but given the mass apeal of computer RPGs like Baldurs Gate, Ultima and Morrowind there must be an audience for that type of film?
then again i'd watch it if it had a little white unicorn and red-nosed orcs

i've said it before and i'll say it again
seriously what possessed them to do that? is the director the one and only fan of the first film?
I still hate Twiglets!
I saw D&D 2, and in the words of homer simpson(close enough to anyway) "That was the suckiest suck that ever sucked. Now I've seen movies that sucked before, but that just plain sucked". And that pretty much summed my viewing experience up for you right there.
Seriously, I didn't think that it could be any worse than the first one ( things such as the dwarf being as tall as everyone else) but this one was worse. (Who discovers there is a sleeping black dragon in a mountain, and to prove it, lifts up it's eyelid? Surely the worst thing you could do would be risk waking it up!)
Bah, in short, the movies of the same name bring dishonour to the D&D name. If a movie could commit seppuku, I'm sure they would. I sure as hell would be the guy with the katana behind them :tongue:
I'd love to see "War of the Spider Queen" as a movie...
That would be really innovative, though still possible without many problems.

Well, after having seen the second movie now, I can honestly say....:x !
Seriously, I can't believe I like the first one better.
Haha.. you guys are cool. ^_^
Anyways, I saw this one on SciFi on Saturday night ..
And while it was no terrific film, I didn't think it was horrible.
But, that's just because I didn't pay attention to the acting. I paid more attention to two things:
1) How hot that tall warrior girl was.
2) The overall setting, because it got me in a mood to start up another D&D Campaign.
So, while it wasn't a great movie, it was a fun watch for myself and a couple of buddies, and at least it's going to get something productive out of me. Maybe. :rolleyes:
I saw the first one - which might possibly be the worst film ever made
As it was a crappy torrentially rainy night (I cant escape the rains...) I watched that one too by complete chance. I was pretty drunk when I saw it but to be honest, I kinda liked it. Yeah yeah yeah it was pretty lame (which can be said of the fantasy mish mash that is D & D - Dragonlance excluded) but I thought it was fun.
