D&D Honor Among Thieves, the Movie

I just got back form seeing the new D&D movie.  While I don't anticipate a bunch of Oscars for it I thought it was a lot of fun.  There were a lot of great details for a D&D player to recognize.  I enjoyed it and want to see it again to catch more of those little nuggeets.

I'm going to wait for it to come out on DVD (yep, I'm old school lol). Michelle Rodriguez, Justin Smith AND dragons? Can you get any cooler than that??? Looking forward to it!

Did go see it, it was...not awful. A perfectly mediocre fantasy adventure flick with just enough veneer on it to make it sit under the D&D banner. At least they actually put it in one of the published settings this time, yet also avoided doing a massive LOTR-style lore dump at the start of it; the veneer was thin enough that the name drops and monster appearances were sufficient. The characters and plot were nothing special and the pacing was all over the place, but at least it kept moving. Rating...I have come out of longer movies far less entertained, so it's acceptably average as is.

I did catch the easter egg with the kids from the 80s cartoon in the arena cell, that was a snort.

Will say I read something after the fact that makes it a lot funnier though. The plot is paper-thin, the characters are cardboard cutouts, the dialogue is witty quip after witty quip, there wasn't a plot twist I couldn't call, and a lot of the humor was very sort of meta. So...is this movie what's going on in the imaginations of whoever is at their game table? 'cause that explains a lot.

Watch this one with die rolls in mind, it gets way more amusing.

Just watched this...

...and I've gotta say it was an absolute hoot! 

I agree that it was far from a perfect movie and was, in fact, very predictable at times but still a very fun romp! 8/10 facelicks!

8/10

I think the 8/10 is a pretty good rating. 

I enjoyed it quite a bit.  No, it wasn't a truly great film and the various comments above are fairly accurate, but it stuck the landing for a D&D film and I quite enjoyed it as such.  It was a fun D&D film that made me laugh because they didn't take it too seriously. A good time.

Not horrible; not great.  It was entertaining.  Glad I waited to stream for free.

A fun time......

It was a fun watch. I'd even say it would be a great tool to introduce newbies to D&D. I could see the TTRPG in the way the storey rolled out. I may even try to get my wife to watch it, but I'm not going to hold my breath.
