Movies have been an integral part of my D&D life I think as much as pizza n chips are an RPGers food staple. It was like 1977 and I was 10 when my friends older brother introduced us to the basic chainmail rules. That year we all salivated waiting on the one store on Staten Island called Smiling Sunnys Hobby Shop, to get in each new AD&D book n Module. Those were the years of Monty Python, Dr Who, and G-Force (NOT THE GUINEA PIGS!). For years after that, movies, music, and liturature became defined and excentuated by our love of the game. We played eveything, Gamma World, Boot Hill, Blackmoor, Star Frontiers, even Top Secret. Good memories.
I was lucky that my father was well off enough to have one of the first 55" mirror projection TVs and VHS VCR. So many great DnD films, but what do I remember the most...
Of course CONAN, Sword and the Sorcerer, Goonies, Flash Gordon, Beast Master, Lord of the Rings animated, Hobbit, Two towers animated, Return of the King animated, Heavy Metal Movie (Bootleg back then the movie was tied up in legal issues), Fire and Ice, Indiana Jones, Dawn of the Dead, Monster Squad, and Evil Dead.
Later down the road some others that join the pool are Record of the Lodos Wars, Fist of the North Star, Ninja Scroll, Alien, Aliens, Indiana Jones sequals, Dungeons and Dragons Cartoon, and Blackstar.
Now that Geek is Sheek, there are hundreds of great movies and more each day.
Thanks for the reminder !
