Dungeons & Dragons (2000) (part 8 of 10)
So the elves are dismayed by so many people seeking out the Rod, because controlling dragons is almost as bad as killing them. The Rod is unnatural, man-made, and should not be disturbed. (The gun is still good, though, right?) I’m actually slightly confused about this, since the Rod and the Scepter are magic items and magic is supposed to be all force-of-nature lovey-dovey, but we’ve still got a ways to go so let’s put that aside. In any case, this is all we see of Tom Baker, so wave goodbye to yet another actor who did his best to make the experience of watching this movie bearable.
On a treetop veranda, Marina goes to talk to a brooding, slightly-less scratched up Ridley. He’s got a pained look on his face that implies we’re about to get a dramatic confrontation, so brace yourselves.
