Mock the Movie: Who Needs Dialog? Edition

As Dark Dungeon comes out, it seems only fair to remind everyone that Jack Chick is not the only person who can pen a terrible, terrible movie about the game. In fact, Chick at least wasn’t trying to be entertaining. The makers of the 2000 Dungeons & Dragons had no such excuse.

This one is available on YouTube.

“This sounds awful!” I hear you cry. Yes. Yes, it does. “This must be mocked mercilessly”, you say. Well, then you’re in the right company. The instructions for playing along:

  1. Start following @MockTM on Twitter.
  2. Start watching the movie on the appropriate Wednesday at 9 p.m. Eastern time.
  3. Once you’ve got the movie going, tweet your snarky comments to @MockTM.  Directing our tweets to @MockTM will keep our followers from being overwhelmed with our snark!
  4. Set up a search for @MockTM on Twitter for the duration so you can follow along with everyone else sharing your pain.

If you have suggestions for other movies that can and should be mocked, send them to @MockTM. Preference will be given to movies that are free or stream on the major media delivery services. Watch the feed, and we’ll set up the calendar for more terrible, mockable movies.

If you’ve missed a mocking, you can catch transcripts and even subtitle files for later watching on the Mock the Movie archive.

    I don’t know what you’re complaining about. I found watching Jeremy Irons chew the scenery as Profion highly entertaining. The rest of the movie admittedly less so.

    I still love the line, “Just like you thieves, always taking things that don’t belong to you.” Any movie with a line like that has my heart. Forever. Even if it has Marlon Wayans.

    Crimson Clupeidae at 3- There are four D&D movies. This one, “Scourge of Worlds”, “Wrath of the Dragon God” and “Book of Vile Darkness”. All direct to video of the SciFi Channel (or however they spell it now) naturally and I don’t think they are connected in any real way. It’s not like I watched them for consistency or anything.

    OMG, we actually watched that atrocity in the theaters. It wasn’t good, but not quite bad enough to be entertainingly bad.
    I think we spent the latter half of the film whispering to one another that “we could just leave now…” but somehow stayed, hoping it would somehow move to either side of that line it was straddling.

    The last entry in the archive was “Hell Comes to Frogtown” in July.
    Please hurry up with a new one, pleasepleaseplease!
    i sometimes wonder if it would be possile to mine bad films for segments of action, and then paste them together with some new footage of competent actors doing a competent script with a competent director. That way the film crew can concentrate on the stuff that makes a film good.
    Use computer algorithms to change the faces of the actors in the borrowed segments.
