  • 08:57 PM - Leatherhead quoted hutchback in post Critical Role Campaign 2
    Not PG at all. The language can get so expletive laden at times that it borders on incoherent. It's my only real beef with Critical Role. One would think that such creative people wouldn't rely on such banal language. I won't watch it with my kids around. That's fine, the taboo nature of such language will make preteen and teenaged kids want to watch it without you too. It's also worth noting that CR's homebrew content was also deemed important enough to be added into D&D Beyond, while CR is being used as a marketing platform for that service. It's just a bit of cross promotion. D&D Beyond is part of Twitch, after all.

  • 05:21 PM - Ralif Redhammer quoted hutchback in post New D&D Movie: July 23rd 2021
    It hasn't been for lack of trying...Eragon, Spiderwick Chronicles, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and The Golden Compass (though arguably its failure was due to the external pressures) were all attempts at starting a franchise. Even the Chronicles of Narnia, which at the least got off the ground, floundered halfway through the series. Then again, The Scorpion King series has how many entries in it now? I'm just struck on Hollywood's inability to capitalize on what LOTR accomplished. Someone mentioned how there were little to no good superhero films before 2000. That got me thinking how The Fellowship and Spider-Man were both released within a year of each other, achieved similar praise from viewers, and made similar money. Since then we've seen this steady stream of superhero films, many of which were good. Yet it's been a trickle of forgettable fantasy films in that same time. IMO there are no shortcuts in telling a good fantasy tale. You must develop the characters, the world, AND the...

    Seriously, name 10 GOOD live-action high-fantasy films. 1-3. Lord of the Rings Trilogy 4. Willow 5. Hallmark's Merlin (Part 1) 6. Hallmark's Merlin (Part 2) 7. Excalibur (1981) 8. Stardust 9. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl 10.Dragonslayer (haven't personally seen this, but some of the reviews I have read speak well of it)

    Not sure why anyone would have any expectation of this being any good. This genre is something Hollywood seems unable or unwilling to execute well. Seriously, name 10 GOOD live-action high-fantasy films. I think LOTR was just so well made that we consider it proof that it can be done, but perhaps it is the exception that proves the rule. Why should Hollywood do it? I think Disney could do it. Europe has a lot of locations and castles. I think some of the previous Dungeons & Dragon movies were a bit over the top. I remember one with implausibly high medieval towers. I think the writers need to resist the temptation of making magic an "everyday appliance" in their world. Non-magic using characters should out number the magic using ones. http://img03.deviantart.net/a18e/i/2013/017/5/4/forgotten_realms__characters_by_conceptopolis-d5rs6xc.jpg Could they do a movie with these characters? http://wiki.aerie.ru/images/7/76/Waterdeep_pic.jpg Here is a castle from the Forgotten realms. https://tse2.mm.b...

    This genre is something Hollywood seems unable or unwilling to execute well. Seriously, name 10 GOOD live-action high-fantasy films. Point of clarification: can we use particularly good ones more than once, or do we need 10 unique ones? That said, I'm setting my expectations at "competent toy commercial." *pfffft* Optimist!

If you had asked for somebody to name ten good superhero films in 2000, there would have been an insufficient number of candidates to even populate the field, and one could state that Donner's Superman was "the exception that proved the rule." Just because it hasn't been done often before doesn't mean that it can't be done. That said, I'm setting my expectations at "competent toy commercial."

  • 07:45 AM - happyhermit quoted hutchback in post Over Half Of New D&D Players Got Into Game From Watching Online Play
    I’m sure there are many streams by players featuring different systems, but are any other publishers actively promoting or broadcasting live-play of their products? D&D seems to have really led the way on this. There have been a couple RPG publishers on "Tabletop", but that isn't really a LP and this is years after they had the host on AI. I imagine it's much harder for less known systems to get people to do LPs, especially "taste makers" :hmm: but I haven't seen much in way of concerted effort or acknowledgement of it's importance until recently.

    Are there any examples of other publishers trying to capitalize on this trend? D&D's most profitable year ever was 2016, and 2017 may surpass it. “Over half of the new people who started playing Fifth Edition [the game’s most recent update, launched in 2014] got into D&D through watching people play online,” It seems foolish to ignore marketing data like this. Yeah, other games have streaming shows: Pathfinder, Star Wars in particular.
