[August 3rd] Knighst of Badassdome

I've learned a hard lesson, never ever to trust cinematic trailers. Don't you think they are a siren song, which lures cash out of your pocket, but then turn into a swan song for the movie, once you watch it... on the big screen... especially if it's in 3D.

Yet, I can't ignore Summer Glau, Peter Dinklage and Ryan Kwanten. That's having some bits and pieces from Dollhouse, Game of Thrones and True Blood in one movie. The premise for "Knights of Badassdom" is ridiculous for a B-movie, enough to be a fun and mindless flick:

Do you think it will manage to entertain? And don't you think that there is a rather interesting trend in movies to focus on LARP? Not that every movie has a focus on LARPers, but the movie industry is definitely sinking their teeth into this section of geek culture.
