That we can agree on. I suppose hoping that at least the lore is good is a lost cause.

Default Duncan Jones is directing the Warcraft movie

http://www.firstshowing.net/2013/dun...arcraft-movie/

He directed "Moon" and "Source Code" which are both awesome movies that you should see.

Needless to say I fucking approve.

Duncan Jones is an unexpected but welcomed choice, with him directing and Charles Leavitt writing it certainly has the potential to not be a huge disaster.

I'm eager to hear more, we'll seeee.

The real question here is how they will do the humongous human mustaches in real life.

I got it.

That was my first reaction as well. Along with "What?"

I actually loved the Source Code. Good to know we aren't getting the bottom of the barrel. Still, even if it was directed by Peter Jackson and written by a crack team of genetically modified, super smart chimpanzees, I would still be terrified of the project as a whole and almost hope that it never came to be.

Also, if you guys haven't seen Moon or Source Code, you should check them out. They're great movies.

I haven't seen Source Code, but Moon was excellent.

I'm willing to measure my expectations on this, because Jones doesn't have a tentpole film to his name (which Raimi did) but I was pretty impressed with 'Source Code'.

I'm certainly interested in watching the production of this film, but I don't think there's anyway to truly judge it's quality until it gets released. Script, direction, casting, and editing all play a big part in the ultimate effect of film, and with something as big as World of Warcraft, it's something that would be a challenge for any director.

If anything, I expect something with as much fidelity to the franchise as Golden's books, especially with Metzen on as a producer. It's not going to fix all the problems that some people have with the franchise, but that's not what it's meant to do: a WoW movie is a platform to tell the story of Warcraft in an epic fantasy film, and businesswise acts as a two-hour ad for the game.

I expect it will do exactly what it's intended to do.

The important thing is that, so far, they haven't fucked up.

Friend: It'll be from alliance pov, right.
Mutterscrawl: Who even knows by now
Friend: No
Friend: From Med'an's pov
Mutterscrawl: No
Mutterscrawl: Oh god
Mutterscrawl: I'd have to
Mutterscrawl: Drive out and stop it
Mutterscrawl: Get a team.
Mutterscrawl: Warcraft's 11.
Mutterscrawl: Secretly infiltrate Blizzard's HQ on the night of the premier.
Mutterscrawl: Steal / Destroy it and replace it with a bunch of machinama clips.
Mutterscrawl: So for team comp I'm thinking Warrior and DK tanks, Shaman and druid healers... and then a mess of mages, warlocks, hunters, and rogues for dps.

We are pleased to announce that Duncan Jones, director of critically-acclaimed films Source Code and Moon, has signed on with Legendary Pictures to direct the upcoming live-action film based on the Warcraft universe. Click here for more info.


Blizzard, I hope you follow this.
Also, notice how it says "Warcraft" and not "World of Warcraft"?. Good sign, this.

And if you wondered if there was an ulterior motive for building up Varian over the last several years, this HAS to be the reason.

It's one thing to have problems and voice your concerns, but when you endlessly bitch day in and day out about the same tired old shit, it honestly makes me wonder why you are even here. Generally when somebody doesn't like something, they stop caring about it.

And on that note, SoL is a forum I no longer enjoy. So, I'm done here. And I genuinely think the people who have absolutely nothing at all positive to say about the game and, the people whose posts are composed entirely of whining, really consider leaving (or at least sticking to non-WoW sections). Because if you truly get no enjoyment out of WoW, then why are you here?

With that said, goodbye.
