I saw it earlier this week, anyone else? : )

Enjoyed it, but apparently it was cut 40 minutes so it could probably have been a lot better

it was actually the first 3D movie that i didn't regret seeing in 3D

it actually added to the experience rather than being a half assed gimmick

i guess you mean like physical discomfort tho

regarding the movie itself:

all in all it felt more like harry potter than lotr if you get what i mean

don't go there expecting an EPIC SAGA or whatever, it's more of an ez watch fable

its very good for its style and genre however and i enjoyed it

outdoor scenes and magic was very well made

i'd say cinema visit was very worth but yeah i was surprised by how well the 3D was done and i went with ex-wow player irl nerd friends which definitely helped

just seen it, same opinion as above. as a wow fan the movie was amazing. we went with a group of 8, 3 wow players 2 that haven't played wow and 3 girlfriends who don't know even know what wow is .everyone liked it appart from 1 twillight fangirl. very good movie and you all should really go watch it if you ever want a sequel.

I have seen it.

It was an "okay-ish" movie I guess.

I liked the orcs, the 3D studio did a good job at modeling them.

I didn't like the humans because their armors, clothes and surroundings look artificial and fake. Srsly, humans armors & clothes are too clean & shiny, because of that humans actors look like cosplayers :(

Ppl are saying that the biggest part of the movie's budget was for the 3D studio (Gentle Giant), that's why the humans look cheap.

Imo instead of a live-action movie, warcraft should have been a full animation movie.
Lich king and BC intros vids are awesome, I could watch a 2h movie like this :wub:

i personally loved the movie, however the problem is that it can't really be appreciated by non-wow players, hence why i'm afraid of its average success.

the movie itself has a nice plot, lovely effects, but yeah, if you haven't played wow, you leave the cinema and even if you go home with no regrets, you won't really feel passionate about what you just saw.

the movie doesn't explain anything about draeneis and takes many things for granted, as if the audience already knows 30% of the background plot / storyline. it should have spent around 5-10 mins explaining what is azeroth and what are the races (an external movie spectator won't really follow what's going in with dwarves, elves, the kirin tor etc..they just appear on screen at some point)

however as a wow player what i loved was: the murloc, the roof in the king llane's room with old eastern kingdoms zones (Stromgarde, anyone remember the lvl 40 castle full of elites in arathi highlands that everyone used to attack in TBC to farm mageweave cloth?), the reason why deadwind pass becomes grey and obscure rather than a blossoming area, Medivh's butler being the 2nd karazhan boss in the game (Moroes), the creation of the golem (we've fought those kind of mobs for decades), the WANTED: Kobolds in lion's pride inn, the gryphon effects..and a lot more.

what i disliked was the marketing (i honestly thought Lothar was going to be a retard trying to be funny through the whole movie looking at the trailers, where as in reality the comic aspect is kept to a bare minimum which doesn't seem to hurt the plotline at all) + the fighting scenes looked horrid on MMO champion where as in the movie they were pretty sick; something i also frowned upon was a bit of the director's choices in regard to scene swapping. Duncan jones basically tried to swap from different events through the whole movie, to follow each storyline and each character, by some damn annoying fade in - fade outs. it didn't feel natural. whenever he didn't use the fade in/out effect, the scenes seemed to have a better connection and everything flowed very well.


they could make this big if they make some movies centered upon some main villains (arthas, illidan), but that will take time and support. critics are very bad on the movie, showing how MOST of non-wow players probably won't like it at all.

i think the best idea would be making a TV series out of the Warcraft world. it would probably be one of the best things ever, as they could include players' spells and mix the lore with WORLD OF warcraft. imagine having a 5men team as main characters of the tv show, where they actually use WoW spells (a rogue using stealth, cloak of shadows etc...CGI is very capable of this all). they could follow the storyline of these 5 heroes whilst also sticking to the lore, like for example helping Tirion kill Arthas and so on. the reason why i'm pretty convinced that'd be amazing is that the whole audience started laughing when Khadgar polymorphs the guard in the stockades, saying it only lasts for a minute and works on weak minded people (similar to how it doesn't work on bosses in the game).

but yeah, totally worth every cent i spent. make sure you watch it in 3d!

yeah i can relate to that

i also felt like it just throws you into the universe without explaining anything, just assuming you already know

the other thing that bothered me a bit is how fast events go

it felt rushed at points, they talk about shit that happened days ago while on screen it was only a few minutes and there was nothing to signal 'time passing' to say. i kind of lost the 'scale' of time there

i like event spam over shit being stretched out but the scale itself has to be consist or at least communicated properly

i guess this is what really happened:

apparently it was cut 40 minutes

it does feel like they just had to last-minute "cut shit out" so to say

Nasty, brutish, and about 6'1".

Look at me. I can start and stop wars, at will. I can save or destroy the world. I can do anything I fucking want. Just now, I pissed near my toilet bowl because I fucking can.

Loved every single minute to be honest.
Could be better of course, but what couldn't be, still, was awesome.
I could have watched it for 2 or 3 more hours without a problem.

Nothing is made for everyone.
