Title: The Dungeonmaster
Post by: gash26 on May 15, 2000, 05:57:49 AM
well, what can I say about this piece of... I remember seeing this as a double feature with the Beastmaster when I was 12and I thought it was great, I saw it again afew weeks ago and I could not stop laughing. I think the metal band in this movie is W.A.S.P. but I'm not quite sure.

Since it'll undoubtedly be a while (i.e., years) before I get around to doing this myself -- and curse you, Andrew, for doing it before me! -- I'd like to mention one of my all-time bad movie bits.  The Satan guy does or says something vaguely evil, and the hero notes (in a bad Clint Eastwood sort of way) that "You're the lowest of the low!", following which Satan angrily reacts with one of those "Why, You! I'll...!" reactions.  You'd really think the Prince of Darkness would have a thicker skin after all these years.

P.S.  I think the band's Black Flag.  An old schoolmate got excited when we made her watch the film, because her cousin was the lead singer.

Finally! Someone else actually saw this gem. I first watched it as a kid, and was blown away by the utter cheesiness of this fiasco. The highlight was seeing WASP in one of the "vignettes" complete with the requisite rocker dudes and aqua net babes...what can I say, I found this movie again at a store for $5.00 last week, and could not resist. I had to add it to my already heinously cheesy collection...hey. have you seen a movie called Interface? It's right up (down?) there with this flick. for a real gastronomical treat, do a double feature!

I just want you all to know that I saw this movie when I was a kid. CanŽt forget it, cause I thought it was great! But if I see it today, IŽll maybe dislike it. Who knows...

My review of 'Ragewar' ('The Dungeonmaster') pretty much follows everyone else's: Yes it's a piece of crap, but viewing it at the age of 13 (I'm pretty sure it came out in England before the U.S.A., as did 'Swordkill' ('Ghost Warrior') and 'The Alchemist') I thought it was an undiscovered classic, up there with the Hollywood greats: inescapable proof that teenagers are twats.

KEVIN - The film was called 'Ragewar' in the UK 'coz that was the film's original title, and it was actually released in the UK before being re-named and slightly re-cut for the US market. The US version is missing the pre-credit dream sequence that the EIV version contains, and I think a couple of Mestema's lines have also been left out when he first appears near the start of the film. However, the US 'Dungeonmaster' also has a longer version of Mestema's 'cat torturing' speech. I can only think that this speech was largely cut out of the UK version 'coz they think British kids are more likely to go out and torture our feline friends, having been encouraged by Mestema to do so...

What just happened? To get that movie out of my memory I'm gonna Get drunk, AND smoke pot, AND snort crack, AND watch girl-on-girl porn. If that doesn't work I'll take some pills and hit my head with a bat.

When I saw the listing in TV Guide (remember when TV Guide used to list what was on TV for the whole night?) I thought I was in for a treat--it was made in the mid-1980s and was about a computer programmer and sword-and-sorcery fantasy and an evil wizard played by Richard Moll.

Somehow it managed to be terrible in spite of all this.

When a B-movie can’t even be enjoyable with all that going for it, what hope is there?

I have nothing to add just that this looks like some Buck Rogers fun.  Hopefully a DVD of it is in the future.  I want to see it!

I bought Dungeon Master at a yard sale for $1 or $2.
I like science fiction movies . . .
But I've got to say this movie was pretty bad . . . I've seen worse but I can't remember what! lol
Although the 'hero' of the movie looked great in the blue costume!  :bouncegiggle: :wink:

I was hoping it would at least be as much fun as Trolls....

Tempted to pick up a used VHS but maybe a DVD will come out sometime.  Trolls 2 has gotten a lot of wom...possibly thanks to the rifftrax that was done for it.  So...maybe there's a little hope there....

I've seen some people on this site refer to the band in the band scene as (L.A. punk/HC icons) Black Flag, but it is actually (the more straight heavy metal/shock rock) W.A.S.P., led by the acerbic Blackie Lawless-the song they're doing is 'Tormentor', which I believe is off their second album 'The Last Comand'-don't mean to sound like a know-it-all, I just love this movie and both of the aforementioned bands equally! :smile:

It's kinda weird how it's a mashup of seven directors.

Yep, couldn't finish it. OMG his freaking computer hacker glasses, the tight ass running shorts, his hot GF jealous over his female computer AI, WASP!!!

It's in that twilight region between so bad it's good and so bad it's bad.

This one definitely gets 3 drops of slime from me!  I recently picked it up on laserdisc because it deserves to be seen on a 12" hunk of plastic that needs to be flipped over halfway through.  Yes, it is awful but it's also a heck of a lot of fun.  And, you know, W.A.S.P.!

Yes it was W.A.S.P. and the movie is not half bad.  I really love seeing the Boom mike in the to middle and top right had of the screen.  That was priceless.  This is a movie worth watching if you have some down time and do not mind bad acting, poor continuity and quality.

Later,

John

THIS runs this film every other week, or so it seems.  It's on right now.

Some of the FX are okay.  The models, masks, and puppets have enough detail to be convincing.  The laser blasts need work; they should have used practical lighting in addition to animation.

I saw this early this morning on AMC and I wish I'd read this review before I saw it.
