Knights of Badassdom 2014

R CC

KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM follows three best friends (Peter Dinklage, Steve Zahn and Ryan Kwanten) and dedicated LARPers (Live Action Role Players) as they take to the woods to reenact a dungeons and dragons-like scenario fresh out of the mythical Middle Ages. Trouble arises after they unwittingly conjure up some serious evil in the form of a blood-lusting Succubus, from the pits of hell.

Knights of badassdom - Me and 132 of my friends where able to get Tugg.com to bring the movie to Phoenix, Arizona February 4th at the AMC desertridge. About 30 of us showed up in costume (garb) to watch this before it was released. I will give a spoiler free review:

Basic Plot: LARPer's (Live Action Role Playing) conjure up a demon from Hell played by Margarita Levieva during a weekend get together for the LARP group. Eric (Steve Zahn) and Hung (Peter Dinklage) are trying to cheer up their friend, room-mate and former D&D player Joe (Ryan Kwanten) who has just broken up with his girlfriend Beth.

The movie pokes fun at anyone who has ever done D&D, LARP, SCA, etc but coming from a person who does this for fun I can tell you it was a great fun movie.

There is Mild (think Evil Dead) gore in a few scenes, Drug use (Pot and Mushrooms), brief implied nudity (sideboob), mild violence and language. If you liked roll models and the evil dead, have ever LARPed or had a friend who did and wanted you to join them for a weekend of "fun" this movie was made for you.

This is one of those movies that is "so bad it's good" and that made it awesome! Also digging the soundtrack.

Update: Watched a second time -
So I was thinking about this and wondering if my review was skewed because of a couple things. First, I was a little drunk. Not falling down drunk, but I would not be able to drive a car. Second, I watched this with a group of friends. These two combined made me wonder if the booze and my friends laughing made me laugh more. Well, in an effort to be thorough, I watched it again last night. Just me, winding down after work, stone sober. And you know what, still funny!

I fully admit that there are numerous random plots points that were not explained that might have made the movie flow better. But that could have also led to the movie being too long and slowing down too much. But here is what made the movie awesome, to me:
1. Danni Pudi - Since I really like the show Community, this was a instant win.
2. Summer Glau - what can I say, she has such a sexy "nerd girl" look and when she smirks = awesome.
3. Peter Dinklage - I liked the Station Agent, but really I think GOT has made him that much more awesome. He puts the Imp in Pimp and is still awesome and funny in this movie! And without being too "spoilery", his final battle scene was just epic!
4. The music - Really the soundtrack overall is ok, but what sold the movie was the "final battle scene" and how the song plays into it. Just trust me, it makes no sense at all, but it is awesome nonetheless!
5. The other actors all did well, but the 3 I called out really made the movie. The Stackhouse guy from True Blood and Steve Zahn were funny/cool as well, but the first 3 sold it for me.

This movie is awesome! If you are a gamer or know a gamer and can enjoy a movie that is not going to pose deep philosophical issues then this is a great movie for you.

It is in-line with movies like "Unicorn City," "the Last Lovecraft," and "Dorkness Rising." If you saw and liked these films then again this film is for you.

If you despise gamers, geeks, and anything not on NPR then you will *hate* this movie.

Read on, but beware as spoilers follow.

First, your expectations have to be in the correct range.

This is not game of thrones level film direction and script quality. This is an all-star cast in a movie about geeks doing geeky gamer things. You can tell from the clear ad libs that many of these stars have been in gaming venues previously and liked it.

The jokes are bad, bad, bad, but they are *supposed to be*.

Nothing is sacred in this movie, and, while the jokes are discrete, many of the politically correct things in these current United States are poked at pretty shamelessly.

Second, don't fall in love with any particular character -- most of them are killed off by the middle of the film. Just say'in.

Well done!

Huz-zah!!!!

Awesome, diverse, and talented cast of men and women. It is good to see some great nerdy movies. Peter, Ryan, and Steve must have been friends before this movie because their buddy relationshiP emulates throughout. I have been waiting for this movie to come out for over a year, and it did not disappoint.

Based on the trailers, I thought this was right up my alley - a cheesy film about LARPers (Live Action Role Playing) having a weekend romp in the woods and things turn a bit weird, in a cheesy sort of way.

And yes, that's the film's premise, for sure. Everything's cheesy, including quite a bit of the acting. The plot, the dialogue, you name it - it's like a bunch of gamers got drunk and said, "Let's make a LARP horror movie! with demons! and 'this one time at LARP camp' jokes! and ... and... Summer Glau and Steve Zahn and Peter Dinklage!"

A lot of swearing, so if naughty words are not for you, then neither is this film. Some violence - some a bit more graphic than others. If you can get through your weekly showing of Game of Thrones, this is probably easy in comparison.

It's cheesy, there's definitely a bunch of LARP/MMORPG jokes, and there's a heavy hand with the horror. While I wish that various things about the film had been better, I think it falls into the "so bad, it's good" review box. Don't take it too seriously, and you'll enjoy it.
