    t’s hardly a masterpiece, but then, it shows no signs it ever wanted to be, and sometimes that’s a relief.

    Knights of Badassdom actually delivers everything the 2011 Danny McBride-James Franco comedy "Your Highness" purported to be but fell short on. The film is "This Is the End" festooned with Middle Ages accouterments.

    I had no expectations for this, movies as such tend to go either way. But this one? Plenty of potential - fantastic cast of nerd icons, a silly and unique setup with a rich friend who is a LARP angel, unlimited fodder for humor... and then it gets jostled around in a box so stifling that when it's tipped over, it's a generic horror "comedy" that doesn't deliver on either front. Stripped of anything but banal storytelling and strange inconsistencies with tone and plot, it rapidly became the worst of Buffy, Xena and Hercules - without the budget. Which is saying quite a bit, unfortunately, that the special effects were on par with 1993 WB fantasy. If you're going to do a fantasy flick on little to no budget, either embrace the cheese(instead of pretending to be high level horror) or ditch it entirely and focus on the STORY. I really wanted to like this movie, but it feels like its sole purpose was to belittle nerds as cliche losers-in-the-parents'-basement crowd instead of empowering them, as the trailer promised.

    "Knights of Badassdom" es una comedia absurda con un mal argumento y un guion decepcionante.Esta pelicula no tuvo mucho potencial y tampoco tuvo mucho suspenso, me sorprende que con un buen elenco la pelicula sea absurda. Full Review »

    So much potential here, ruined. All star cast of true, nerdy actors really trying to pay homage to nerdy pastimes. Some promising things at the beginning. Then it turns into a horror comedy, and it all goes downhill. The tonal inconsistencies utterly ruins every single joke, and makes what could have been fun, campy dialog and plot insufferable. Too goofy to be creepy, too creepy to be funny, and somewhere along the lines, the homage turned into every other hackneyed portrayal of games out there. The end ultimately feels like a big F you to geeks, implying they are losers who are t0o detached from the real world to do anything worthwhile with their lives, with a barely passable self-insert fanfic holding it all together. But the real crime that I have to hate a movie with all these genuinely awesome people. And not liking Summer Glau or Peter Dinklage just makes me feel dirty. Just re watch the sweet trailer, and the movie you conjure in your head will be so much better then this. Full Review »
