Who will be the dominator of worlds? Destiny belongs to those who dare in Dungeons & Dragons, a thunderous fantasy adventure inspired by the popular role-play game.

Nice!


Ok, the first one was a mess and I've never watched the sequel, but it seemed better. i'll probably add this one in my collection if the price is good in Canada, since I'm a fan of Epic/Medieval/Fantasy movies even if they are not so great!! :)


Thanks a lot for the news Ron.

D&D 2 wasn't great, but it was fun in its own way.

I actually got to see it on the big screen, and it was quite enjoyable. I'll be getting the set as well.


That said, the "commentary track with actual D&D players" (also present on the on the D&D 2 DVD) is best left alone.


Man, an hour wasted on this sig! Thanks, Toshiba! :P
