Just got back from watching the new Dungeons and Dragons movie. I enjoyed it very much. It definitely captured the spirit of the game with lots of silly hijinks. I thought Chris Pine did a good job as a bard and leader of the band of adventurers. I was caught off guard by a couple of the emotional moments. I didn’t expect that watching a fun romp like this. Overall, I stick by my recommendation and, no, I don’t think you need to have played the game to enjoy the movie. Have a good weekend.
