    Oh enough about the Dragonlance movie. When are we gonna get a Forgotten Realms movie? Can you think of a character more deserving of a movie than Drizzt Do’urden?

  2. james says

    hey evo, you dont need a pvr or dvr or whatever they are all you need is a vcr and a blank tape (p.s stay away from beta)

  3. says

    Brian, if the Dragonlance movie is successful, then I bet you’ll get your Drizzt movie. :)

    I say that if they can get Kiefer Sutherland to do Raistlin, they can get Samuel L. Jackson to do Drizzt.
