    Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves


    In the sea of indistinguishable superhero movies and mind-numbing blockbusters that get released every year, D&D is a breath of fresh air. It's brightly lit, colorful, and full of imaginative action sequences and hilarious jokes that actually contain wit.

It's unfortunate, then, that the last two episodes veer into more pedestrian and predictable territory, climaxing in…
