It didn't hurt that it was Marlon Wayans, either.

Yeah, but he comes back to life at the end. Of course, most people don't realize this, since it's so poorly directed. But I've watched the ending on DVDVDVD with commentary, and the director guy says that Marlon Wayans comes back to life. He also says that the movie did well enough overseas that the studio is considering making sequels. It'll be so cool if that happens.

Someone thought this movie was better then LotR?
::shudder::

The funniest thing was when someone complained I didn't like the movie because it didnít follow the rules, I then gave reasons why the editing, direction, cinematography, art direction, script, acting, blocking, lighting, and pacing were bad. That movie HURT. Was just painful, and being a DnD player made it 100 x worse. Futurama has many great DnD references, like the rust monster and the beholder.

I've seen the beholder, but what episode has a rust monster in it?  Actually I never read the descriptions too closely so I'm not sure what a rust monster looks like.  I probably saw it but mistook it for just another alien.

They even had D&D creator Gary Gygax in an episode.

I used to play D&D when i was younger, now i play the warhammer fantasy rpg. If you play tabletop rpgs i recommend it warmly. The rules are a lot better and there is a lot of good exstra material.

They've made a D&D movie now? Why wasn't I informed? Oh, well judging from the commentaries, I haven't missed much.

To beat LOTR they had to do some sort of uberhuman effort. Besides how, one of the fascinations about D&D was that you were in control, you made the decisions, tricky to translate that to the silver screen.

If this helps any, D&D got a fresh rating of 11% (8 positive reviews out of 70 total) at Rotten Tomatoes

I have heard of it but I don't like the actors and it's low budget means that it will be full of cheap and crappy special effect so I gave it a miss.

Well, I haven't really seen Clue in movie form. That can be more liberal anyway, so long as they figure out who killed Mr. Body

It had Tim Curry in it, so it can't be TOO bad.

The CGI was pretty good. The film sucked like nothing had ever sucked before.

Actually "Back to the Future" for Nintendo sucks as a game.

Yeah, most movie games suck too. Sure, occassionally you'll get a GoldenEye but most of them are Friday the 13ths.
