Hail once more, legendary warriors! Once more we embark on our quest “In Search of Dungeons and Dragons,” wherein we search for movies that can be said to truly embody the spirit of the role-playing game we love so well, verily, forsooth, ipsofacto, e pluribus unum. Today, we marvel at the cinematic creation that is 1983’s “Krull.” We’ve got cyclopses (cyclopsi?), magic horses, a brave hero, a comic relief magician, and a magic weapon that looks like it would turn the user’s hand into cole slaw. What could be better? Huzzah and gadzooks, join us!
Once again, bold travelers, you join us on our quest “In Search of Dungeons and Dragons.” This week, it should be pretty easy. I mean, we’re talking about the 2000 film NAMED AFTER THE GAME! It’s got elves! Wizards! Beholders! Some guys who are probably supposed to be Orcs! And it’s got Jeremy Irons, so you know it’s going to be good; just look at his work in . . . Eragon. Oh dear. Oh, this is going to hurt, isn’t it? Give a listen and find out. I mean, this should be a sure thing, right? It’s a movie that claims to be based on the game! It’s got to work. Right? . . . . . right?
