Over at 10-4goodbuddy, Ben has liveblogged In The Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale. Liveblogging a movie is not a genre that is ever going to catch on. Scrolling down the length to see if you want to bother is daunting. And yet - and yet it is laugh-out-loud funny. You do not have to know Ben or already hate movies by Uwe Boll to appreciate this. Sample comments from what is happening in the movie at the 8.00 minute mark.
A quick IMDB search proves that In The Name of the King is actually written by three people, who between them have a total of one movie writing credit – a horror film from 1989 (!) called The Carpenter, whose plotline is “a carpenter, executed in the electric chair, comes back to finish his dream house, now inhabited by a young married couple.”

The Tagline: “He's Turning Their Dream House Into A Nightmare!”

The dialogue continues to live up to the writers’ remarkable resume.

Statham: “Be safe”
Claire Forlani: “It’s Stonebridge. Of course we’ll be safe”

Dun dun dum! The orchestra moves into the Foreshadowing Movement.

Countdown to family getting attacked – 7 minutes.
Odds of kid dying – two to one.
Odds of wife getting kidnapped – even money.

Erin - his time predictions are uncanny again.
