It might be boring for other than *banders but then again look at DOOM the movie

Oh, you were clear enough. I was just deliberately taking you the wrong way.

Just like Seany C said although Pacino or any other actor would not have to wear an @ costume just something suitably medieval
Of course the interesting bit would be shooting every scene from directly overhead...

Don't know if there's a feature length ASCII, but if you click the Funnies section here on oook, you can watch two trailers

I think pixar should make us a good movie in that style.
