Ah, I remember it well. 1982. I was twelve years old. Mom heard they wouldbe showing this movie on TV and decided I should watch it so I would getoutof the D&D club I had just joined at school. After it was over, she askedmewhat I thought."A perfect example of the dangers of fantasy."She missed the ...
Man, this movie makes me miss the days when gamers were viewed by thegeneral public with unease and fear. The best gaming happened then. Thesedays, there are no cautionary tales of gaming gone awry. Instead they makefun of gamers on shows like "Jesse" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer". Timehasstripped ...
This movie is a classic. OK not in the "what a masterpiece" sense orthe "what a great undiscovered gem" sense but more along the lines of"Oh my God I am gonna pee my pants laughing at this early 80sfear-mongering flick which happens to feature a young and bewilderedTom Hanks." This is right up there...
Mazes and Monsters was the made-for-TV special at the head of theanti-Dungeons-And-Dragons movement, spearheaded by Patricia Pulling whoblamed the game for her son's suicide the same year. I know peoplewhose parents confiscated and threw out/burned all their gear as aresult of this film, which sugge...
I didn't even know this was originally a made-for-tv movie when I saw it,but I guessed it through the running time. It has the same washed-outcolors, bland characters, and horrible synthesized music that I rememberfrom the 80's, plus a 'social platform' that practically screams"Afterschool special"...
I'm a longtime gamer and a lover of trash movies. I had heard of this filmbefore, but not much about it. So, i took the plunge and rented Mazes andMonsters. I laughed 'til i nearly cried. many have commented upon the badacting and low budget.. yes, it's bad, but i think that in at least thecases of ...
Laughable early attempt to "show the danger" that playing D&D leads one tolose all contact with reality, this film (from the book) was an obviousattempt to cash-in on the popularity of the most durable RPGever.Never rising above the low-level of a "Made-for" that this is, it's thesortof movie which ...
As a role-player myself I'm in the minority because I actually quitelike this movie. Most gamers seem to dislike it as it negativelyportrays the hobby, but I say look past that and watch what can be anentertaining drama. Sure it gets a little long winded once the maincharacter goes a little nuts, bu...
The psychology of this movie is really weird to try and figure out. Itsoften billed as an anti-RPG movie, but its really not that simple. Hereare come apparent contradictions that make me wonder just what (ifanything) they're trying to say about gaming.They laboriously introduce all the characters h...
This movie gives "fiction" a new meaning, a skewed, misinformed andalarmistpainting of a harmless hobby. I've met people who actually were bannedfromplaying D&D by well meaning mothers who saw this movie in reruns onLifetime(of course, Movies of the Week are always reliable stories that help tellus...
A full-on smear campaign about the evils of Dungeons and Dragons, fromthe height of the parental outcry against the game. Funny and sad inthe same context as Reefer Madness, it's akin to a long after-schoolspecial in the blunt, inelegant way it hammers away at its only point.An extremely young Tom H...
I caught this movie at a small screening held by members of mycollege's gaming club. We were forewarned that this would be the"reefer madness" of gaming, and this movie more than delivered.Tom Hanks plays Robbie, a young man re-starting his college careerafter "resting" for a semester. What we, the ...
"Mazes and Monsters" attempts to capitalize on the then-hotrole-playinggame trend with a sensationalistic, cliche-ridden script suggestingthatsuch games inevitably lead players into madness, despair, andsuicide.So, sadly, can dismal TV-movies. But this one has an added bonus:Anextremely pre-Oscar To...
Mazes And Monsters is a film about two controversies... the first verymuch of it's time, the second (not of it's own making) would only beapparent decades later. Let's get the more recent one out of the way:there is a lengthy scene set in the now destroyed World Trade Centre.This is probably enough ...
Hoo boy, this was a real trial to get through. The DVD case has TomHanks' mug plastered on it and that is the only reason that anybodywould buy it. He looks about forty on the box, however, the movie wasmade in 1982, so he still has his Bosom Buddies 'do and of course isabout forty pounds lighter. T...
Many things become clear when watching this film: 1) the acting isterrible. Tom Hanks and Wendy Crewson are so-so, but the parent-childconflict borders soap opera-ish. The other two boys: an overly poutychild prodigy and your stereotypicalI'm-a-babe-but-I'm-really-sensitive-inside blonde dreamboat; ...

this is the best role tom hanks has ever taken and surprisingly, was hissecond. he has spent the rest of his career trying to recapture theseverity and drama of this piece of art - philadelphia et. al come tomind -and he obviously robbed of the sci fi made for tv movie best lighting emmy.robbed! ro...
Mazes and Monsters is a role playing board game. JayJay (ChrisMakepeace) is diminished by his overbearing mother. Kate (WendyCrewson) is his friend. Daniel (David Wallace) suffers under hisdomineering parents. Robbie Wheeling (Tom Hanks) is starting anew atcollege after some problems in his past. Th...
I personally love this movie as I watched it at age 12 & instantly fellinto playing D&D. I owe more than 20 years of fond player memories tothis film.However, my notation is neither cheers not jeers for the film butrather an easter egg of sorts. There is a scene where Robby is walkingdazed forward t...
It's strange to watch Tom Hanks out of his idiom as the All-American hero.We instead get to watch him fall into rolling bounds of insanity at themercy of a `far out' RPG game. In fact if it were not for Hanks fame thisfilm would be relegated to the trash heap of early 80's cinema. But withhim, it'...
the only value in this movie is basically to laugh at how bad it reallyis.with a plot that makes your average middle-school writer look good, andacting which is almost as good, it gets my bottom score. one of tom hanksvery early films where he obviously didn't have the pleasure to be realpicky. th...
Young Tom Hanks on the lame beginning of his magnificient career portrayedthe character seldom seen in reality, but often seen in paranoid newslettersof evangelistic churches - mentally deranged role-playing games fan. Yes,there are real questions concerning this issue, but, pamphletic view givenin ...
This movie is a weird one for sure. I watched on TV one day because I hadnothing better to do. It is pretty interesting to see Tom Hanks in a lowbudget film. The plot is actually very interesting for a cheesy movie. Heisunder a lot of stress and one day while playing a game he breaks down andthinks ...
The other reviewers denounce this movie because of itsnegative portrayal of role playing. There is a number ofscenes that establish these kids as troubled and needingto escape. This was just a modern allegory of what canhappen when something that makes a troubled personhappy is taken too far by that...
When this movie came out I thought it would be a good movie. But afterseeing it I was very upset in the way it portrayed Role Playing Games,giving parents everywhere the unreasonable idea that Role Playing Games orFantasy Games would actually cause their children to go insane. Like oneother reviewe...
