The key to a good Dungeons and Dragons adaptation is the subtle, understated acting of Jeremy Irons.

Okay, I've got it. The company that owns the rights to the D&D movie gets bought out by a bigger movie studio. That studio immediately rushes a third D&D movie into development, but doesn't really bother to screen-test it that much. After the ticket sales, merchandising, home video, streaming, and all the other money they can get, they don't feel like the movie made enough money. So they release the  exact same movie with maybe like one or two inconsequentially changed scenes. They release it as "D&D 3.5" and watch fanboys spend all their money on the exact same content all over again. That's another round of ticket sales, merchandise, home video, streaming, etc. And if anyone points out it's pretty much the exact same thing with a few minor farking changes, or how the studio is  double-dipping to separate suckers from their money, the fanboys go into a frothing rage about how those changes were totally necessary.

A few years later, the studio realizes it's time to milk their cash cow again. So they make a fourth movie. People start to complain the plot seems eerily similar to "World of Warcraft," and it doesn't feel the same. A large amount of people go off and watch this new movie "Pathfinder" instead. Some decide they're sort of done with that entire style of film, and they go off and watch "Savage Worlds" or "GURPS" instead.

But nah. Something like that would never happen.

It was among the first cartoons I shared with my now 5 year-old twin daughters "History" and "Mystery."

I wish that had been the first sentence -- then I wouldn't have bothered to read any more.

How am I supposed to take seriously a man who names his children "History" and "Mystery"?

meanmutton: Fantasy movies and TV shows have had a good run -- LOTR, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones -- but I don't think that a D&D branded movie will work at all. You could do a Dragonlance or Forgotten Realms branded movie, maybe, but not anything that's strictly D&D.

I'd watch a big-screen adaptation of "The Order of the Stick", but if they portray Belkar accurately, it would probably earn an "R" rating ( which is box-office poison these days, at least in the US )
