Why are they still trying to make a Dungeons and Dragons movie. If they would just make one based off of the novel they already have existing and name it after them maybe throw Forgotten Realms and d & D into the title screen somewhere that would be okay. But quit trying to make a Dungeons and Dragons movie.

Indeed!  However, I suspect that the reason they keep trying is that the execs who want to cash in on the brand recognition of D&D have no idea what a "D&D story" would be about.

Hell, I'd settle for a live action remake of the 80's kids cartoon of the same name.

That could be interesting ...

I agree they do not know what a "D&D story" would be when they could easily look at LOTR for a general idea.

When the best action sequence of Die Another Day is the sword fight in the club midway through the film, then something is wrong. Toby Stephens did a solid job playing the British villain. The rest of it except for the image of Halle Berry was pretty bad. Her Character could have been played by someone more athletic in the role and not just trying to cash in on her Academy Award win. ...

Although I will say the SC2.0 LSpy mod Fire Into Ice was a directly inspired by it. My friends and I had a good time playing it at Origins, even if a buddy capped the Mastermind with threat and it got activated to crit so he was killed with one shot. As Pat may remember: "Ya want Texas oil pipe fittin's with that?!" (Sorry, my friend's cover was a Texan oil billionaire despite him being Russian. Although it was damn funny for us to sudden move to the "mop up the mooks" stage so quickly.)

Let's hope it is substantially better than any that have come before it .....

I think Connery has acted quite a bit actually.

The thing is most of Connery's natural traits like his gait, mannerisms, gestures, etc is what created the initial and most enduring version of Bond. He defined him visually. The way he portrayed him was realistic for what an intelligent spy would do given the circumstances with the gadgets being of opportunistic use most of the time.

I think Lazenby and Brosnan were a good portrayals of Bond. Lazenby accidentally thumbed his nose at the role afterwards and was cut out of the franchise while Brosnan was hampered by some scripts and directors bordering on the cartoonishness of Moore's run as Bond. Craig has done a great job of bringing it back to the source material in his performance. The ultimate version of Bond in my humble opinion is actually a blend of Connery and Craig.

Best of luck on getting everything done, Pat. We're a loyal and patient lot. I have no issue with the time since I trust the quality.

I like most of this without reservation.

For my upcoming home game in FC, I can the reduced load quality, base damage increase on Light and Heavy crossbows, and the Resolve/Concentrate checks when adjacent (which I consider similar to using a rifle point blank in SC2.0).

I like the feats too.
