Monster Camp

Release your inner Aragon.

This Seattle-shot doc follows a batch of men and women — well, mainly men — who take their love of all things Lord of the Rings and Dungeons and Dragons to the next level.

Participating in Live Action Role-Playing, they replace Viggo laying waste to Orcs with a Microsoft tech guy chasing a Safeway clerk through the underbrush, bellowing “Magic 15! Magic 15!”

Pulling back billowing curtains to reveal everyday people who revel in the descent into fantasy, it captures a nice mix of the mundane and absurd.

Plus, it’s more entertaining than anything the butt-numbing LOTR movies gave us.
