    So since I like the games (both Warcraft and WoW) I'll like this movie, sweet.

    I just want this to be a success so I can see a movie down the road focused on Arthas and the Frozen Throne. Puhleeeeeeeze! A *well done* movie about Arthas' story would be a huge hit in my opinion.

      Who would you cast as Arthas and Jaina?

    I like that people say Mist of Pandaria was tonally not very dark when one of the first bits of dialog you get from a Pandaren was to not bring the Alliance/Horde war to Pandaria, referring to it as a race war if I remember correctly. The trailer was even colored really dark until the last few seconds.

    Makes sense that the movie was released in France. Since that is Vivendi's HQ location.

    Got to love how far off critics are when they review movies the don't know shit about

    TheWrap's guy rated Dragonball Evolution 4/5 stars. Now c'mon.


    I feel like the people who rushed ahead of the embargo... were not the best kind of people to criticize anything to begin with.

    I saw it yesterday in Switzerland. I really liked it. The visuals are stunning and the story is great, even thoug it differs from the books (more at the end, but not bad in my opinion). I think the differences are neccesary because the movie has to have at least some end to it. Best reminder of the comparison to the game was that a scene was in Ironforge and after the movie I din't seem to remember the great forge but then realised that I was just so used to it from the game that it fit so perfectly I just accepted the look as I remembered from the game.


    A few friends of mine came along who haven't played any of the games and they liked it also and were not confused about the story which I feared somewhat.

    Also, the Pandarens first appeared in Warcraft III: The Frozen Thrione, by mentioned, and Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, by way of a secret in the game that, when achieved, gave you, like, three or four Pandaren units. Both of those games came out 2 years before WoW.

      I think you have it backwards. I don't remember Pandaren in Rain of Chaos besides Illidan's weapons having a panda face on them.

      " by way of a secret in the game"

      But yeah, I MAY have it backwards, it might have been in Frozen Throne. It has been so long, but I remember the level it was in. I might just have it wrong which game that mission was in...

      Sorry, just nitpicking.

      It's all good. I am probably the most pedantic nitpicker I know, so I understand.

    Underdark isn't even in warcraft. You are thinking of D&D (specifically thinking of Forgotten Realms)... It is okay, though, Ryan, I understand. You (hopefully) have been playing a lot of D&D recently with Heroes & Halfwits.

    Here's my early wow experience:
    Get me 10 boar livers ... Never seen so many boars without a liver, HOW DO THEY SURVIVE. I spend hours killing boars
    Bet the movie can't beat this.

    i dont care about reviews for this movie, people either dont get the movie because they didnt play the game or the compare it to fucking WoW which has nothing to do with the movie at all. So the only review i will care about is my own

    Professional critics have their place, and are very important, but there are films that just aren't for critics. Take something like The Scribbler, fans like it, critics hate it, but it's not really made for critics to like, as it's a bad film, but a very interesting adaption of a graphic novel for fans of said novel, and/or graphic novels in general. I feel like this movie may be made by certain critics (Moviebob comes to mind) telling the masses that it's good or bad from a respected Nerd prospective.


    What I disagree with is that people keep asking will this be the first video game movie that's good. I don't like that, because I don't feel like it is a video game movie. Yes, it's a story from the Warcraft world, which is a game, but it's pretty basic fantasy stuff. It's Lord of the Rings with less races. That to me doesn't feel like a video game movie, but a movie that just so happens to be based in a video game story. It's like if you made a story about gangs shooting people, hiring hitmen, and double crossing eachother, and called it GTA. It wouldn't really be a video game movie, it'd just be The Departed but based in video game location.

    Movies aren't made for professional critics. They're made for the fans.

    If the reviewers have no real knowledge of the source material, they probably won't like it if it's close to said source. So maybe ignore what they say if people that saw it like it.

      That's a bad thought though. A movie should draw more in people, rather than be just for its fans. If you spend say ~160 million (which is what the budget is said to be), and you pull in only Warcraft (or even say, gamers in general) fans, you won't make your profit.

      yes they will make profit lol the Warcraft franchise is massive they make like $15 per ticket across the world that means to make $500 million they need 33 million people to see it and that easily covers the fans of the games

      I just meant that the critics can't be trusted as a good measurement of the movies quality.

    Still going to go see it, no matter the opinions of critics.
