Of Dice and Men

Few dungeon masters can make the game come to life better than John Francis. Dwarves, Mages and Barbarians jump right off of their character sheets whenever he sits down at the gaming table of frisky suburbanite parents, Linda and Brandon. John Francis’ best friends, sailor-mouthed John Alex and thoughtful jock Jason, bring roguish swagger and knightly nobility to the game. And the object of John Francis’ affection, the feisty Tara, provides all the Half Elven Double Princess backstory they could ever need.

But when Jason enlists to go to Iraq and with the relationship with Tara going nowhere, it may be time for John Francis to hang up his twenty sided dice and take a job on the other side of the country. However, John Francis is about to discover that leaving will prove tougher than the Tomb of Horrors.

I FINALLY made the time to watch a few of my screeners. YES. I said a few. The thing is…having a baby…takes a lot of your time. My ‘movie’ watching has come to a slight stand still in my life!! (lol)

But on this Thursday…it was decided to get my butt in gear…instead of sleeping in after Maddox’s morning feeding. I watched. OF DICE AND MEN.

What did I think of it?! I REALLY liked it. I really did. I loved the whole story. It took me back to my Dungeons and Dragons days as a ‘younger’ Mike…now those were the days…and YES. I played Dungeons and Dragons!!

Of Dice and MenNow back to my review. I thought the OF DICE AND MEN cast was dope. While watching it…it kind of reminded me of the movie CLERKS…the way everyone spoke to each other. It had that kind of humor and feel to it. I loved Linda. I thought she was hilarious. Brandon her husband – I actually knew a guy like that. He didn’t care about D&D…but he still played. Oh the good ole days. (lol) The end creature fight…I thought it was creative and funny. It had a little Cosplay to it. Loved the Spango drawings – those were hilarious. I liked the comedy side and reminder of my D&D days…but believe it or not – OF DICE AND MEN tugged on my emotions. I’m not going to lie – I got a little teary eyed. DAMNNNN YOUUUUUUU!! Brandon’s little wife speech on why he plays and Spango’s speech for taking the potion. DAMMMNNNNNN YOOOUUUUUU!!! Overall…OF DICE AND MEN is a nicely packaged flick.

I give OF DICE AND MEN…4 out of 5 popcorns! If you’re into role playing games, Comic-con, Cosplay, D&D, comic book stores and even watched Dungeons and Dragons on Saturday morning’s. You should give this a try!!

Sorry movie fans. I’m getting to this movie review a little late…but…having a 1 1/2 month old little boy…well…he takes a lot of my time. (lol)

Swearnet

In the wake of losing a coveted TV network deal, the actors who play the Trailer Park Boys find themselves out of a job and stage an all-in comeback by launching “Swearnet”, a balls-out, offensively extreme internet channel that is complicated by their post-fame lives, at-odds relationships and trademark hilarious hedonism.

Ok. Lets start of by saying that my wife was NOT a fan of SWEARNET. (lol) I believe it was all the cussing in this movie…and I mean  A LOT! Like A LOT, A LOT, A LOT and A LOT. I can’t remember the last movie I saw that had this much cuss words. The wifey even said, “I really don’t like you having Maddox and the dogs in here watching this with you.” (lol) THE DOGS?! REALLY?!

But never fear…we all stayed watching it. Me…my son…and my dogs!!

And we liked it!! (lol) We thought it was hilarious. These three dudes…hell…the whole cast were funny as hell. I didn’t even know these guys had real stuff online. (lol) SWEARNET not only has serious cuzz words – but the stuff they do. HOLY SHIT. Freaking hilarious. We even get cameos from Tom Green and Carrot Top who are just as funny.

I give SWEARNET…3 1/2 out of 5 popcorns! If you’re into crazy, college, cussing, WTF movies? SWEARNET is for you.

P.S. SwearMan rules!
