    I would love to see this start with the cast getting together to play the game, and then we jump into the game and the rest of it is us seeing what they are playing as a fantasy movie.

    There's already a perfect D&D movie out there (that, for reasons I can't fathom, refuses to come out despite having been done for quite some time now). That's the kind of thing a good D&D movie would need to do; D&D is all about playing the game, not reveling in the "awesome" (and I'm using that word quite wrongly) game worlds at their disposal.

    Even the 80's D&D cartoon figured that out.

    Unfortunately, they're more likely to try and go with a "straight" fantasy film. Again. Which will likely fail. Again. But, c'est la vie.

    Ironically, your little trick confirmed my point.

    That is usually true for those with a mental illness.
