    Bull shit. Subtitles on the movie is important. Humans aren't exactly binary.
    Blizzard do not destroy Jaina Proudmoore's character. Make her who she once was, not full of rage and vengeance.,If you are curious about me or about my writing aspirations, feel free to pst me.

    I like when lesser known actors are used, makes it feel more authentic. For example, every time you see Tom Hanks in a movie you think, that's Forrest Gump.
    District 9, one of my all time favourite movies had no actors I'd seen before. I'd just like to know who they're all playing.

    Still proves my point. Just replace the movies I mentioned with those you did.

It would be hard to think of danial radcliffe as a character outside of harry potter, since thats who I see when he's in other roles.

    But, really, this does look like its heading towards b-movie presentation. Lets be honest here people, casting aside your rampent warcraft fanboyism for a moment. It is common, and well publicized, that movies made of games are just plain shit. There have probably been 1 or 2 movies made of video games that had any quality to them, all the rest was garbage. So this is very thin ice metzen and these producers are following.

    It depends on the amount of fan service they put in it. The reason movies based off of games tend to suck is because the mass amounts of fan service they put in it dilute the story telling. It'll either have tons of it and suck and not make a lot of money, or it won't have a lot and will be good but piss off the fans.

    Usually there's little to no action when people talk you know.

    Clearly, you don't live in a country where subs are common practice.

    Subs are present for 8-10 seconds, but you use LESS than one second to read them.
    On top of that, you NEVER focus on them; ypu use the perifical vision to read them, thus you still focus on the main event on the screen.

    Bring in Gary Oldman, Michael Fassbender, and Sean Bean and it will give Warcraft major cred.

    A lot of good movies and shows have casts with a ton of people who are pretty new, relative unknowns. It's a possible strength of a movie when the cast isn't competing with a big name actor who eats up the screen, even if said actor isn't going out of the way to do so.

    That's a very poor reason to write off this WoW movie. A much stronger reason would be how there hasn't been a single video game movie that's received critical acclaim better than "at least it wasn't terrible like most movies based off video games." But it also makes you think, "these movies can't suck forever," as video games become increasingly mainstream.

    What worries me most is that the script credits already contain "rewritten by...". Nothing kills a movie's quality so much as script by committee. It sucks all of the daring and unconventional out and replaces it with cutesie or unobjectionable pablum.

    I hope that Felicia Day gets a part, or at least a significant cameo. I hope they can make that happen.

    It's something you get used to, after a while you stop noticing that you're actually reading them.

    While true, my point is that a big name or two would mean people give it more than just the glance of "Oh, computer game film, it's gonna suck". It would have to be truly exceptional to get away without some well known faces. To be that good is a very rare thing.

    I think you forget the point of epic movie trailers. It convinces millions of disinterested people to go see that new 'Crazy looking movie about monsters and castles'. They won't be going to see a movie about a video game, so they're not going to have that opinion.

    Maybe just me, but I've never been sold on a trailer. I'll usually hear about it long before there even is a trailer from the usual 'hype' I'd pick up for stuff that would normally interest me; or from reviews and word of mouth after people established it was good from actually seeing it.

    Most of us around here aren't a typical audience. The majority of populations, especially in America where the largest movie income is usually made, are swayed by things like that. It's the whole reason why advertising exists like it does here.

    I only recognise the woman from Mission Impossible. Hopefully it will still be a great movie, and not just another Dragon Ball movie.
