My hopes and dreams are attached to this:


Don't get me wrong I love star wars and will see it in the first few weeks but I recently realized it was the games that made me love (continue to) star wars so much so my level of interest is.

But here comes Warcraft. A universe that rivals any in its awesome lore. I didn't play WoW that seriously (and only a few on and off years) but I still think its tops. I don't want this movie to be good, I NEED it to be good. I had a few college buddies get so pumped up for halo making a movie and I need to shove it in their faces that warcraft is better in every way. I need the world to understand how awesome warcraft is so I feel justified in liking every part of it.

I just.....UGH!... need more epic-ness in the world!


ps. I also found this more interesting than any of star wars news

Chopping?

Warcraft looks like it could go either way. Very hard to say from such a tiny teaser.

Re: chopping at the bit for star wars? I'm not.
I do think some of the larger world, multiple title, RPGs have the most potential for a film, since most have plenty of stories, or even an all original story to work with. However, since history is not on the side of a game-based film being good, I would hope you are ready to cope with a poor film.

Familiar with the expression. I've just never seen the "chopping" form.

Ah ha! Someone who needs to buy my copy of World of Warcraft: The Boardgame!

wow ~"DO NOT WANT!" instead, get that: "Wayne's World! of GWAR!-craft! Party-hearty "ON" Garth!"

Wasn't there a series of these a few years ago? Mostly about some blonde elf with really big... ears.

Video games. There has never been a good movie based on a video game.

I heard about this movie.

The first hour of the movie is spent naming the main character. Finally he gets the name "Big Johnson McShady"

Then he spawns in the middle of the city and meets two new "noobs" that become his friends. Their names are "MagnetoRoxx" and "|_337|<1|_|_4"

Finally they get a lot of free gear from "SuperSayianGoku", and go off to kill rabbits for a few hours...

Champing is the thing (not chomping), bit you got here much faster than I did.

Star wars or Warcraft, both pretty meh

The overall 'movie' aspects were great, with their very 'subtle' implementation for the GAME being depicted within this. When 'moi' worked in the Seattle shipyards, then I'd been upon many types of the vessels shown in there, and some years later to include an actual "BB" tour at Bremerton, with my Dad and eldest nephew as well.
cool
