    I don't know if it will be as bad as those. But yeah, there has yet to be a good movie based on a video game. There are some ok ones out there like Resident Evil. However, is that really what this movie should aim for? just ok?

    First thing is that they have to have a great script for the movie. Who is writing it?

    Same as any movie. People will qq. People will whine. As for me, I can't wait but as I said. I'm not going to hold my breath for lack of complaints.

    And lets see, i think Atlas Entertainment, Blizzard Entertainment, Legendary Pictures, and Universal Pictures as the production for this film have about 6.023 x 10 ^23 the budget of those horrible movies you mentioned. C'mon, its gotta be good.
    I've seen moon & personally I wasn't that impressed.

    What i find funny is that, we literally know Nothing about the movie, yet the wow community and so called Fans, are the ones going around speaking about "major failure incoming errmagerddd"

    i feel sorry sometimes for the community, make an effort to support it, if you actually Care about it, if you don't care, move along. I for one am very excited for it, even a trailer, i just can't wait for a trailer hopefully at the end of next year.

    It's going to be terrible.

    1. It's been in development hell, which is generally not a good sign.
    2. It's live action, which means that it's not going to look or feel like Warcraft, no matter how well they imitate it.
    3. The plot focus as revealed thus far doesn't seem very interesting or compelling.
    4. Video game adaptions never work. Based on what we've seen, at best it may become popular for superficial reasons like special effects, but I doubt even that.

    I stand to be corrected, but everything I've seen and learned so far leads me to believe that it's only being done because enough people want a Warcraft movie, not because there is a need for one or that it's a good idea on its own.

    It has the best chance of being the first great Video game movie. A Large budget and a decent set of producers. All 90s films based on comics or games suffer from the same problem which is they thought they had to have a layer of cheese and silliness. Marvel Disney figured out you don't have to do along with WB (maybe too far the other way) and that's why they've been successful. If any video game movie has a chance to be a really entertaining and fun move its WoW. This isn't going to be the next great film, but it could easily be as great as Conan in the 80s etc.

    When would there ever be a need? Nobody needs to make any film ever. Pretty sure the latest Fast & Furious film, maybe Riddick, was made because fans asked for it so much. So people wanting it is far more important than some imaginary need.

    Sometimes updated...

    It's going to be good to really good. Here is my reasoning:

    -Hollywood is DYING for non-rehashed movies that have potential to make really good profit.
    -WoW has a good following, and a potential for additional movies.
    -Blizzard WILL spend the necessary budget to move it beyond all the low budget video game movies everyone has listed. They will get all necessary funding just from the reputation of the game and their company.

    There's nothing "meh" about Jackson's Kong. I think it's a great movie. I wish he was doing the WoW movie because the Batman movie the guy doing Warcraft did was the worst one ever.

    and thats what will make it enjoyable. If I go in thinking "this is going to be a loose representation of a story I already know" then likely I will walk out pleased. If I go in thinking "this is going to be canon down to eye color" Im going to walk out chanting "the book was better"
    Vote with your wallet if you don't like something. Otherwise just keep your mouth shut.

    its a 100milion movie. unless they spend 90mils on shiny cars and booze i bet alot of money will go in fancy shmancy computorized scenes where you wont even notice it is done digital

    I don't think Blizzard would ever allow their creation to be bastardized to the point of Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter. We have no reason to believe this movie will suck and every reason to believe it will be as awesome as everything we've come to expect from Blizz, a company noted for its insane levels of quality assurance and strict perfectionism.

    Those movies are awesome. What's the problem here?

    Uwe Boll isn't directing it, so I have a shred of hope. Guess it depends on the subject matter too; honestly instead of trying to do an original story, would prefer they just cover the First and Second war, depending on how in-depth you want to get that's easily 4-6 movies worth of material there, then add in WC3 and that's another 2-3. Since a lot of WC players have never head of or even played the originals, and more and more not having played WC3 even, that's plenty of history/lore that can be shown. Hell even WotA (sans time traveling loser please) can easily be expanded to 4 movies worth of content. Don't really know why they think it'd just be seen as a LOTR ripoff, as the dynamic is entirely different and our Orcs aren't miserable evil midgets who need to be bred just to stay out in the sun.

    Just glad M. Night Shyamalan isn't part of it, he's ruined more movies that could of been great than decent ones hes made.
