Editorial Reviews

So what do six gamers do when the game just gets too easy?

They get real, of course.

A chance encounter with a professor and the lads have a historically accurate adventure for their characters.

Soon they're up to their poisoned daggers in battles, travels, molten hot medieval chicks and naughty bishops.

But will the guys have the opportunity to discover that with history it's what you don't know that will get you killed?

2.0 out of 5 stars Not up to the standards of Dead Gentlemen Productions September 15, 2009
Format:DVD
I will rate this against others in its weight class. The Gamers, and especially Dorkness Rising are far superior to this. I expected inexpensive production values. The writing was bad, jokes were driven into the ground far too often. It just wasn't as good as other films in its class. The basic idea is good and the twist ending amusing. Between those two points we get the same jokes over and over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Congrats on Excellence August 19, 2010
Format:DVD
I screened Welcome To Reality this evening on my downstairs neighbor's big-screen DVD player. He wants a copy.

I was expecting a Saturday-afternoon-in-the-garage version of Spamalot--and there ARE Monty Python elements in the scenario--but I was astonished at how well-crafted it turned out. If it was low-budget and silly, you were all obviously PROFESSIONALS doing low-budget and silly, nevertheless. And I never--repeat, NEVER--saw the surprise twist coming at
the end. That's right--twenty years reviewing plays and you pulled the rug on me.

Your SFX-wiz Feutz does precision-timed graphics and you've got a sharpshooter foley man as well. The audio is rough, but you probably know that already. The editing was superlative--I followed the transitions between dimensions with ease. And if your ensemble was, indeed, improvising, they showed remarkable attention to one another's cues.

So some of the gags worked better than others, and some I may have missed on only one viewing, but for a home movie, it's got enough of the Right Stuff that I'd like to see what you-all could do with better microphones and higher-quality weapons.

Congrats and props (as the kids say) to your whole company. This is an impressive accomplishment, and you can quote me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well... I liked it.... August 16, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ran across this one night while browsing Amazon, and on a whim ordered it. There wasn't a whole lot of information in the description and no reviews - so I really didn't know what to expect. Just got through watching it and thought I would post a review for anyone else that might be curious. First off, this is a `movie' - one apparently made by a very independent film company. The disc shipped to me was a DVD-R and not a mass-produced DVD like you would regularly get. The DVD-R worked fine. The `quality' of the movie itself - reminds me a lot of the student projects I saw back when I was teaching high school. I think that the look is a bit of a combination of that is what they were going for and because they are an independent film company. The cast looks to be college age students. The acting is very exaggerated high school theatrics - which is what I think that they were trying to do. The movie at times has some pretty impressive `special effects' - they too are a bit over exaggerated and made to look a bit amateurish.

The movie itself is about a group of `students' who are playing a role-playing game and it switches from them imagining themselves in the game and them in a classroom. At times some of the stuff they come up with is hilarious - especially if you have ever played one of these games yourself. Some of the humor can be a little `crude', but usually to a degree that most young kids watching will probably not understand.

All-in-all, I liked it. The only reason I'm giving it four stars is that the audio is a bit off in places. I look forward to this group's next production.
