Wasn't bad, the
Certainly leaps and bounds over the first two movies. I actually found the second movie to be far better than the first, and this one to be leagues ahead of both. I found myself wishing the movie was longer.
I saw the DVD, I should also mention it's NSFW.
Well, it wasn't really SUPPOSE to be funny. It was based off of the Book of Vile Darkness afterall
To those that HAVE watched it, I've nearly identified all the monsters and such,
Overall though, if you look at it as an amateur movie (if there's ever going to be an official DnD movie, it'll come from the guys who gave us the gamers), then it's actually quite good. Though sadly, as comical as this may sound, the guys who gave us dungeons and dragons are the last people who should be behind a DnD movie, especially since they gave the story writing of the first movie to a guy who admittedly (or at least I read somewhere that he wasn't a DnDer) knew barely anything about DnD.
Through rituals dark and terrible, but not as terrible as this movie.

especially since they gave the story writing of the first movie to a guy who admittedly (or at least I read somewhere that he wasn't a DnDer) knew barely anything about DnD.
What I heard about the first DnD movie was that that Courtney Solomon, the writer and director of the first movie walked into TSR office fresh out of film school and said "How much for the movie rights to Dungeons and Dragons?" This was back in the mid to late 90s when TSR and DnD were not doing too good due to both poor management and the CCG craze at the time. So the price was low and Solomon was able to buy the rights.
He wrote the first movie based on One of his old games He played in. The hero of the movie was his PC in that game. Also this was the guys very first movie right out of film school. You saw the results.
...wait, this thing exists?
First saw the YouTube commercial for it... back before summer, late winter or early spring I think? Recently but not too recently. Might have been around longer than that though, I tend to be slow getting news of stuff. Still haven't seen it.
Wiki says the official direct-to-DVD release was August 9 in the UK. No mention of release in other countries.
