I don't think it's really a secret that I'm a massive Dungeons and Dragons nerd.
I love being a player, I love being a GM, I love reading fantasy novels, looking at monster stat-lines, creating new races, building entire worlds.
It is quite a wondrous thing to be a fan of.
But there's one D&D related thing I don't enjoy.
Watching the movies.
For some reason they just cannot get a good movie done.
Even movies based off of D&D don't do very well. The whole Fantasy genre appears to be mired in a pool of mediocrity.
It doesn't help that they're very cheap to make, so a lot of mediocre film companies will just churn them out to make a quick buck. Just buy some costumes and go film in the woods for a few hours, add some monster in post and BAM, one terrible fantasy movie.
Arrowstorm Entertainment, on the other hand, actually care about making movies that at least have decent plots.
So, I present to you Mythica: A Quest For Heroes.
|These guys really need to sack whoever keeps doing these.|
Okay Arrowstorm, we need to have a serious talk. Can you please, please start making DVD covers that actually relate to the movie?
Two of those three people don't appear in the movie. That dragon doesn't appear in the movie. That castle might appear in the movie, but if it does it's only briefly. She doesn't use swords in the movie. Not even one, let alone two. That skirt isn't even a part of her outfit for crying out loud.
Want to know the most insulting part of this cover though?
|Can you spot it?|
The actual screenshot they edited for the front cover actually appears on the back cover.
|Great job editor, great job.|
Luckily, the movie's better than the cover, so let's get straight into it.
