Sunday 8th February

Dungeons and Dragons

Director: Courtney Solomon
Year: 2000
Stars: Justin Whalin, Marlon Wayans, Jeremy Irons, Thora Birch

I possibly wasn't paying this quite as much attention as I should have been, being that I was ironing (yes, I know, I almost never iron things, but there you go) over half the film. However, I did pay enough attention to understand the plot, and my initial assumption wasn't far from wrong.

The film is basically your typical fantasy adventure, and is as exactly as cheesy as you would expect a fantasy film to be before Lord of the Rings came along. Not to say that the film is bad exactly - for a Sunday afternoon, it was relatively enjoyable. But the acting was amazing - amazingly bad in most cases. And I still can't work out quite what Jeremy Irons was doing being in this - he's not that bad an actor, is he?

Rating: 2.5 out of 5

About Me

My photo
I live in Bristol with my husband Dan (who I married in July 2007), my son Joe (born 2012) and daughter Jess (born 2015). I work at UWE (the University of the West of England) in Bristol as a Research and Open Access Librarian. I'm orginally from Exeter, so moving back to Bristol is a bit like coming home - especially as I studied for my undergraduate degree here (also at UWE). I love travelling and movies, although I get to do a lot less of both since the birth of our children. Although we have still managed to fit in holidays to the Isles of Scilly, Chamonix and a summer in California since Joe was born.
