VIDEO: MOVIES: REVIEW: Dungeons & Dragons 3: The Book Of Vile Darkness (2012) (TV)

3/5 stars, 6/10 from both of us.
Native ratings: 3.0/5 stars Netflix, 4.0/10 IMDB.

One of my criticisms was going to be that this seemed like it was a Made-for-TV movie… But then I found out that it was, so… Yeah. That.

This was actually pretty good, given how bad the first Dungeons & Dragons actual-A-movie was. Apparently these movies are getting slightly better. But still made-for-TV drek in the eyes of most people.

The zombie girl in the forest was awesome. And Eleanor Gecks is beautiful, though her character’s tattoos looked like someone just drew it on her face with Sharpies.

This could have been worse. Probably not recommended for people who aren’t already into fantasy and D&D-type stuff, though.

VIDEO: MOVIES: REVIEW: The Giant Mechanical Man (2012)

Clint: 2.8/5 stars, 5.9/10.
Carolyn: 4/5 stars, 7.6/10.
Native ratings: 3.3/5 stars (Netflix), 6.1/10 (IMDB).

It was a chick flick. There wasn’t really any comedy.  A few awkward situations, a few *actors* that are usually funny (Jenna Fischer, Malin Akerman, Bob Odenkirk, Topher Grace, Lucy Punch), but the plot wasn’t funny.

It was mostly depressing, with a love story to defeat the depression of the pointlessness of life.

The “mechanical man” gimmick didn’t really do much for me, pretty much felt like a MacGuffin.

By the end of the movie, I felt very happy for the main characters, but sad that I’d tricked myself into watching something so lacking in laughs.

This is well done. And it’s not bad. It’s just not my cup of tea.

P.S. Lucy Punch PLEASE dye your hair back to red like in Bad Teacher, kthxbye.
