"The Assemblage of the Crystal Sphere: A D&D Story: 1 out of 10: This is a film about five people playing a five-year D&D campaign. The film seems shot in real time. That is, it consists of people rolling dice and well talking; for an hour and a half. Yup (Sounds of fingers tapping)

Okay let me deconstruct this a little. The filmmakers claim this is a mockumentary, unfortunately the mock part is so subtle as to be, well non-existent. So instead, you have five people you do not know, playing an D&D game, you arent a member of. It is worse than those celebrity poker shows. Much worse.

I am really starting to think there is not any flotsam that you can capture with a digital video camera nowadays that you cannot call an indie film. A store security tape might have made a better movie than this nonsense.

Dull as Dirt

"Just finished watching this film and it was BORING really, really boring. I am a gamer (regularly), can and love to laugh at table and game-nerd (self) effacing humor. I enjoy this genre of gaming movies and do admit several out of the handful are stinkers but this one takes the cake as being near the bottom only the Fellowship of the Dice is worse. The "mockumentary" angle was way too subtle leaving any attempt at humor flat and the vast majority of the movie is just individual interviews with uninteresting characters and very bad actors (even for camcorder/indie/amateur fare). The gaming scenes are just as bland as the whole with some star trek trivia inserted. Basically avoid this load of... well BLAH! Stick with The Gamers Dvd! Director's Cut or Gamerz (Ws Col Sub Dol), they are MUCH better!"

"Right off the bat, yes, I'm an avid gamer. I can very easily laugh at myself and my hobby, so that's not why I'm about to pan this movie.

To be fair, I give these guys credit for persistance. They nagged friends of mine who work in two separate local game stores to carry this DVD. As a result, and because my friends value my opinion, I got a chance to sit down and watch this movie for free...and I still want a refund.

This movie is like being trapped at while a D&D player insists on telling you about his character or a game he played in. We all found it dull and uninspiring, and, in the interest of total honesty, we could not get all the way through it.

There are better movies about gaming, serious and non. I recommend you seek them out and save your money for them."
