"Do you want to watch Immortals on pay-per-view tonight?"
So, naturally, my mood swung instantly to Mazes & Minotaurs. It was on my mind only a couple of weeks ago, so traces of that mood were lingering. All it took was about 15 minutes of the movie to bring M&M right back to the front and center.
Not that it's a bad thing, I mean it is a really awesome game. And Minotaur #10 did just come out. Not only is it a fantastic game, it makes use of all the range of dice, meaning all my recently-found collection can be called into action.
Oh, the movie, you ask? It wasn't bad for what it was. The lighting was rather dark and sort of murky looking. I'm not very much of a Mickey Rourke fan, either. I can take him in small doses, like the smarmey lawyer in Man On Fire. Principle antagonist gives him too much screen time for me. The movie most definitely inspired me to want to explore over-the-top Hellenic adventure gaming, though. It did that in spades.
I'm curious, though, which is sort of the point of this post. Do any of you have a certain movie(s) that is(are) sure to fire up a certain gaming interest/mood?
