Knights of Badassdom

Ah, Knights of Badassdom.  I remember hearing about this movie a couple of years ago and thinking that it sounded like a great premise.  A bunch of friends are LARPing (Live Action Role Playing) and accidentally summon an actual demon.  Demon then starts to murder them all and they must defeat it together and send it back to hell.  I was really excited for it, especially after hearing that the cast included the amazing Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), the hilarious Steve Zahn (Saving Silverman) and Jimmi Simpson (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), and the sexy and awesome Summer Glau (Firefly), among others.  I was definitely pumped for this movie a few years ago.

Neeeeerds!

Neeeeerds!

But then time passed, movies came and went, and this sort of…fell by the wayside.  I wasn’t sure how it happened.  After all, Peter Dinklage has never been hotter thanks to his success on Game of Thrones.  The rest of the cast didn’t have a ton of star power, but they had the nerd cred to get butts in seats.  I thought perhaps the premise was a little too out there for most audiences, but it still should have made a small splash.

Partly, I blame the movie Your Highness.  If you don’t remember Your Highness, then that’s understandable.  It was a sub-par movie about medieval warriors who get stoned and try to save a princess.  It starred James Franco, Danny McBride, and Natalie Portman, and while it had a few funny moments, the best thing that it gave us was this:

Yes, that is Natalie Portman's ass.  And that ain't nothin.

Yes, that is Natalie Portman’s ass. And that ain’t nothin.

But it wasn’t enough to elevate that movie above something mediocre, and that’s if I’m being generous.  So there was that critical and commercial failure, which almost definitely fed into the producers losing faith in Knights of Badassdom.  There’s a somewhat similar feel and theme, with weed and monsters and irreverant humor, so perhaps they simply thought that audiences wouldn’t be interested and got scared.  They then apparently took it from the director, Joe Lynch, in order to re-edit it, delaying it significantly.  Hence, why it was missed by myself and also why Mr. Lynch has disowned the resulting film.  Of course, being released on only 13 screens didn’t help, either.

And that really is unfortunate, because the film that shipped out (or at least wound up on Netflix, I’m really not sure if it’s the same version) is actually still really entertaining.  The gags are solid and it’s very aware of what it is, a comedy about LARPing and a murderous demon.  The characters are all funny, even if the main character is kind of “meh.”  The rest all have good chemistry and play their roles with natural 20 charisma.  I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to do that.

Moving on!

Moving on!

The movie is rated R, and for good reason.  People get ripped apart in this film, and it is not afraid to show you it happening.  I appreciate some well placed gore, and this movie had fun with it.  If knives through the throat and hearts getting eaten aren’t your thing, then consider yourself warned.  But again, this movie is first and foremost a comedy, so it’s not like it’s all that frightening or anything.

Then there’s the demon, which starts off as a lady succubus and eventually turns into something a little more impressive.  I liked the transformation, especially because they used an actual, massive, physical puppet.  It would have been very easy for them to CGI the creature, even though it’s a low-budget affair, and I’m glad that they didn’t.  It made for a very exciting finale, having this thing stomping around while our heroes try desperately to vanquish it, and there was some great comedy in there as well.  The ultimate moments of the battle were pretty damn silly, and I wonder if that was one of the re-edited sections, but it was still clever enough to be enjoyable.

Yay!  It doesn't suck!

Yay! It doesn’t suck!

So while it’s not the greatest movie ever made, nor is it even the funniest movie to feature LARPing (that honor goes to Role Models), Knights of Badassdom is still a damn good time.  It may be funnier with friends and a couple drinks in you, but even without you still will have a good time watching this film.  I mean, the Dink is in it, for fuck’s sake!  How could you go wrong?

  1. I am always surprised when I contact a business and get a scratchy voicemail message, a pc voice telling me that the wireless caller I am attempting to attain is out of their contacting region, or a fax tone screaming in my ear. When this occurs, my first impression of that business, correct or wrong, is that they are unprofessional, a fly by night procedure, not established, and I am frankly not comfy doing company with them.

    Use a get virtual sms number System. These methods were designed to assist small companies remain linked and audio more professional. You can choose between a nearby or toll totally free number, and enjoy features like unlimited extensions, call forwarding, on hold songs, title directory, and much more. Phone calls can be forwarded to any quantity so you can be attained on your home, office, or mobile. I use a service called Grasshopper and I have it established up so I get an e-mail whenever I have a new concept.

    To link multiple computers together and to the Web, you can use a wi-fi router. The router connects to the Internet, and then a network cable from every of the computer systems connects to the routers. This enables the computers to all share the exact same Web link, and access other servers that you might select to make accessible.

    Which delivers up updating the app; sadly with Side-loading it’s a onetime set up, you can’t update this way. But hopefully by then Amazon will have it built-in into their catalog. the only comment I have on that is they have apps currently in the catalog asking to be updated that are not even accessible however. Amazon needs to stage up their app library sport pretty badly. I can’t even buy a non-totally free version of Indignant Birds.

    Google Profile: Now this services is really awesome. It gives you the capability to include a website profile page. Why is it so fantastic? Nicely, it’s an additional way you can be discovered in the search engines. You choose what is listed AND who can see it. I include on company information in my profile.

    Why is this so cool? Firstly, a VoIP phone service could conserve you money each month by using the place of your land line. Next, it could truly make your virtual phone method that a lot more flexible if it can send a call to any SIP-primarily based VoIP telephone service supplier. That’s why it’s so cool.
