Knights of Badassdom rating: red light

Knights of Badassdom red light

Supernatural slasher haunts a live-action role-playing game. The cast is clearly having fun, but none of it rubs off on us; Peter Dinklage and Steve Zahn are completely squandered.
I’m “biast” (pro): love Dinklage and Zahn

I’m “biast” (con): the trailer made it look stupid

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

  • Dr. Rocketscience

    It’s the return of MAJ’s Short Takes! Or was it Short Cuts. Either way, yay!

  • Well, to be fair, Dinklage has a cool scene at the end. He is mostly wasted though. Then again, I laughed out loud at nearly his every line.

  • These are even shorter. The quick takes were ending up as long as short reviews.
