I am afraid that I actually liked the first one. I thought it was pretty good. I also happen to love the prequels while almost every SW fan I've chatted with hate them. You have to remember that most people view D&D as some weird psycho thingie more than just a hobby so they have to show people its not as bad as they think. The second is better than the first of course but there is not as much humor, a little tad much seriousness. Jeremy Irons was actually very good as Profion, check him out in other roles in other films, he's good. The script need serious work in my opinion. Both Narda and Elwood wait outside while Rid and Snailz go inside the castle. Narda almost always makes some comment about how they (elwood and her; everybody but Ridley) are supposed to do something or enter. Terrible! Cut the lines and scenes! We don't need to see that! There were better scenes they could have kept.
