"I'd use it to kill you."

This has already been posted all over the place. But I have to link to John August's board game movie discussions.




ps. The original dicussion is interesting, but I find August's comments on this latest post with the movie below most interesting:

A few years back, I did an April Fool’s post about signing on the feature version of Goodnight, Moon. This year, I got pitched it. And died a little inside.

As I wrote about in Why must we have board-game movies?, it’s not that Hollywood is out of ideas. It’s that the industry is terrified of failure, and clings to the safety of recognizable titles. In difficult times, it’s comfort food.
