    [Movie] Dungeon & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves

    This just popped up;



    A D&D movie is going to be terrible, right? From the trailer it actually looks like good, dumb fun. Sort of gives off a fantasy Guardians of the Galaxy vibes.

    And it has an owlbear.

    I like that it doesn't take itself too seriously, I'll give it that. Hard to imagine a studio pulling off a "serious, grim-dark" DnD film. I commend them for finding the fun in the concept itself and going with it.

    I’m really glad they didn’t try to make it overly serious which would have just led to it being compared to all the other recent fantasy drama fare (GoT, LotR, etc).

    I don't have high hopes for it but I won't put it down until I see it. It's pretty funny that this trailer came out a few days after I found this channel on Youtube going over the lore of the Forgotten Realms.

    Is that Szass Tam I see at 0:45?

    I remember the one made in the early 2000’s. It sucked. Hopefully this one is better

    I’ll hold out hope that we didn’t see all the cool stuff in the trailer. Black dragon spitting acid? Already gave me a good feeling.

    Just want to point out that LoTR isn't recent. A whole generation has been born, grown up, and graduated high school since LoTR.

    I meant the upcoming show, LotR:RoP

    Always up for a fun film, D&D focused shows generally tend to be that with humour.

    This looks very promising, from the trailer at least. I geeked more than once at the black dragon spitting acid, the druid shapeshifting and being specifically called an owlbear, the gelatinous cube, the displacer beast ...

    It's definitely got the fan service for people who love D&D, lets hope the story and acting does it justice. The casting is pretty stellar as well. Hopefully, Michelle Rodriguez doesn't "dour" it into oblivion.

    I love DnD stuff especially when the comical side of it....almost remind me of Deerstalker Pictures and their DnD skits on youtube but with a serious tone.

    The Woke casting is terrible!

    Of all the choices they had...they choose a BLACK dragon?

    I'm not a racist but the role for the Dragon based on ability...not scale colour.
    Isms bore me. I think they are only brought by people who seek to marginalize the potential of each ism to provide something meaningful. Name it, Capitalism, Socialism, even Communism-- all contain something of merit towards structuring a society. The biggest flaw in human history has been the need to take the worst of a system along with the best. It doesn't have to be all of one and none of another.

    Well, what do you know. A fantasy movie that actually looks like fun, with an appealing lead, and what appears to be an actual decent budget with wisely used special effects. Everything the WoW movie WASN'T. Blizzard, eat your heart out.

    Plus, this looks like it actually has Bards!

    Says every closeted racist ever before saying something racist. The most hilarious thing is, you're racist against the dragon.

    Chris Pine is very charming. What charisma.

    Justice is not a good actor though. Yeesh.

    The sad thing is the armor looks better than the amazon production does, it looks fun though. Chris Pine as a Bard is an interesting choice.

    Well, yeah, he's a Bard. Charisma is not just a dump stat anymore

    I like him. He plays a particular type that many people enjoy. I can get that it wouldn't be everyone's preference, though.

    Looks promising… I’m sure it will at least be better than the older one lol.

    Its presently surprising for sure. I don't expect greatness, but it looks far better than any of the D&D movies before it... which isn't a high bar for sure.

    But I would probably watch this movie for sure. My one wish that is i hope they don't rely heavy on member berries, I already see a Mimic and a Gelatinous cube, lots of 'hey its the thing, you know the thing right' which I don't tend to mind, The warcraft movie was full of that and I liked it lol. But that would annoy a lot of people

    "People fear, not death, but having life taken from them. Many waste the life given to them, occupying themselves with things that do not matter. When the end comes, they say they did not have time enough to spend with loved ones, to fulfill dreams, to go on adventures they only talked about... But why should you fear death if you are happy with the life you have led, if you can look back on everything and say, 'Yes, I am content. It is enough.'" - Wynne ( Dragon Age: Origins.)

    The batteries in your sarcasm detector need replacing.
