FIlm #86: Mazes and Monsters (1982)
Plot - Based on the D&D shaming book, Tom Hanks goes into a psychological trance via his pen and paper RPG addiction. Full of good stuff, like an utterly ridiculous ending that resolves very little.
Form - TV Movie style.
F/X - Some pretty ridiculous dream sequences and fun makeshift demons for LARPing are just phenomenal.
Acting - Tom Hanks is absurd, everyone else doesn't know what to do.
Mise en scene - Some really great New York/cave stuff going on in here.
Quotables - Not really.
Cool stuff - Murder, hobos, and attempted suicide all make this film a crazy ride.
