I may grow old, but I won’t grow up

By Patrick Van Roy On January 16th, 2020

When Dungeons & Dragons was created I was in the military and there were many long weekends when the unit was on lockdown spent with Beer, Pizza and a big bag of multi-sided dice.

There have been many attempts to make a movie capture the magic of that game, all have been failures.

Until Now….. I give you the Witcher. A very dark rendition of a D&D Adventure with Henry Cavill as a Lawful Neutral Monster Hunter.  What makes the show work are the imperfections of the main characters as they play the character class they were written into.

    Oh Valley of Plenty’

  3. The Stormer reports the death of JRR Tolkien’s son, Christopher, who managed the legacy of his father:

    As the old Yiddish saying goes: “Every tragedy is an opportunity to make money.”

    It’s time for Disney to swoop in and take hold of the Tolkien stories, turn it into a “cinematic universe,” and hire a gaggle of Jews to start pumping out a movie a year about elf women having sex with orc men in order to break down racial barriers.

    The Tolkien universe is literally the reverse Star Wars.

    Star Wars failed when Disney turned it into a Jewish social justice festival, but obviously, the opposite thing would happen if the same action was taken with the REVERSE of Star Wars.

    How are things with Star Wars?

    “Star Wars” is shrinking at the box office. “The Rise of Skywalker” is nearing $1 billion worldwide, but it’s way behind the previous installments.

    “The Force Awakens” finished its theatrical run with $2 billion worldwide. That was an enormous hit.

    But the next chapter, “The Last Jedi,” ended up with $1.3 billion, a significant fall off.

    “Skywalker” shows “Star Wars” fatigue. It’s not quite at $1 billion, and it’s getting ready to say goodbye. Disney will keep it in movie theaters for a while but the big push is over.

    The franchise has been eviscerated…..now for LOTR

    Amazon Studios has officially announced its core cast for the upcoming Lord of the Rings prequel television series. The show, helmed by J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay, will focus on the Middle-earth adventures that occur leading up to J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring. After an extensive casting search, it was shared last week that Amazon had found their lead in Game of Thrones’ Robert Aramayo. Today, it was revealed that he will be joined by Owain Arthur, Nazanin Boniadi, Tom Budge, Morfydd Clark, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Ema Horvath, Markella Kavenagh, Joseph Mawle, Tyroe Muhafidin, Sophia Nomvete, Megan Richards, Dylan Smith, Charlie Vickers, and Daniel Weyman.

  4. look forward to the LOTR series.

  5. Alan have you watched Witcher?

  6. Alan have you watched Witcher?

    No – or at least, not yet. Most recent watch was the Deadwood movie, which was a continuation of the series Deadwood. I wasn’t aware that there was even a movie and the series terminated way too soon.

  7. Movie just came out a couple of months ago. It was a nice wrap up, but a long wait.

  8. Never been remotely interested in any of the film and tv series mentioned in this post and thread. All absolute infantile mindless rubbish…. but that’s just my considered opinion 🙂
