Dungeons & Dragons (2000) (part 4 of 10)
In a scene that was actually retained in the movie, though I kind of wish it wasn’t, we’re outside the tavern, and Damodar is paying off some hoodlum who presumably led them here. He directs his men to enter with what, tragically, is the film’s most memorable piece of dialogue:
Damodar: Do not let them escape or you will suffer a fate far worse than that which hath been inflicted on me.
Hath? We’re using “hath” now? Can you just randomly mix present and Shakespearean English like that? Who does Damodar think he is, the Mighty Thor? In any case, I’m not sure Bruce Payne was deliberately trying to come across as a Saturday morning cartoon villain, but all that’s missing is some fake reverb.
