Here it is, folks... Our time of waiting and slogging through the
hardtack and beans mediocrity of the Lord of the Rings movies is finally
at an end... Once again we can enjoy a fantasy movie WORTHY of the name
Dungeons and Dragons:

* * * * *

The Sci Fi channel will be premiering Dungeons & Dragons II: Wrath of
the Dragon God, Saturday October 8. From scifi.com: "Five heroes
undertake a quest to prevent the rise of a dragon god and an evil
sorcerer -- who intend to subjugate the world under their reign of fire
and shadow."
Mark Dymond (the James Bond film Die Another Day), Bruce Payne
(reprising his role as Damodar from the original Dungeons & Dragons) and
Clemency Burton-Hill (the upcoming miniseries Supernova) star in this
fantasy epic.


more...


Based on the phenomenally successful role-playing game, Dungeons &
Dragons 2 takes you deeper into the dark and fantastical world of this
fantasy epic. When the evil sorcerer Damodar braves a perilous whirlwind
vortex to steal the elemental black orb he declares a sinister plan of
vengeance against the kingdom of Ismir. Berek, a decorated warrior, and
Melora, an amateur sorceress join four heroes representing Intelligence,
Wisdom, Honor and Strength to battle against Damodar's growing army of
gruesome creatures, flying harpies and an ice dragon to reach a vault
room holding the orb. Together, they build their own army to retrieve
the orb using elemental forces to defeat Damodar before he summons the
sleeping black dragon whose omnipotent evil powers could lay waste to
the entire kingdom.


WORLD PREMIERE: Saturday, Oct. 8, at 9/8C on Sci Fi
LATE NIGHT ENCORE: @ 1:30am/2:30C

And 4 more. 2 + 4 == 5. 5?

This is like admitting I paid to see the first one, but wasn't Damodar
a plain vanilla fighter?

I was thinking that, too. I bet one of the four dies, and Berek
has to fill that slot...

Clearly, either Berek or Melora have overstated their 'hero' status.

This is admitting I followed the promotional materials pre-movie too
closely, but the writers of the first D&D movie apparently had some sort
of secret backstory for Damodar they'd have used for the second part of
their trilogy (the third part involved the secret backstory of that imp
Profion was using to spy on the protagonists -- apparently it was
serving as the advanced scout of an Infernal invasion, which would have
been Dungeons & Dragons III's plot).

IIRC, they kept saying his blue lips and armor tied into it. Possibly he
was a half-dragon (black) or something, in which case him summoning an
evil black dragon god makes sense.

No no, in character sheet math 2 (BAB) + 4 (Strength bonus) = 8

He's the BLUE LIP GUY? OMG! That was one of the really stupid things
about the first movie. Maybe he'll have bright orange ears or

I doubt he was vanilla *anything*, judging from the makeup and outfit.

Because the movie series is D&D in name only. They are actually
playing Ultima (probably Ultima Online by the quality) and don't know
it.

A d20 modern movie? I can't wait, I'm holding my breath.

Intelligence? Check.
Wisdom? Check.
Strength? Check.
Honor? HONOR???

I don't see no 'honor' stat here!

Why doesn't the fourth hero represent, I dunno, Dexterity or
something?

For that matter, why not six heroes, one for each stat, ala D20
Modern?

I actually liked the D&D movie. I thought it was one of the best B-grade
movies I'd seen in a while.

No, one of the heroes is large sized, so he gets a -1 penalty. Therefore 5
is correct.

I was unimpressed and have no desire to see it again. However, my wife
and daughter liked it, and we now own a copy.

the worst thing to me was Jeremy Irons' ghastly performance as the
villian. Shawn Wayans was humorous, tho. I just wish he'd have spoken
more ghettoish, which would have been a laugh. Bummer he died midway
thru the film.
