Chasing the dragon
I’m well aware that a deliciously derisive review of the monumental suckfest that is Dragon’s Lair on Blu-ray should have been forthcoming by now, and I really hope to get it done before the weekend, but the fact is that I’ve been feeling a little down in the dumps since Friday with a rather bad cold. The thing laid me low to the extent that I actually called in sick on Monday and Tuesday (not that I minded not having to go into that sweltering office and sit in front of a flickery monitor), and I’m still feeling a bit zapped of energy and motivation. I’ll give the thing one more try before putting pen to paper, but I have to honestly say that this is going to be one of those rare 1/10 reviews. It’s a failure as a game and an even bigger failure if you try to class it as a movie, so I’m not sure there’s anything nice I can say about it at all. Sometimes genuinely scathing reviews can be fun to write, but in this case, I suspect that it’s going to be little more than a chore.
