The movie had its share of problems for sure, but I think that's just the nature of trying to adapt such a lore heavy story into a movie format.

I enjoyed it for what it was but I've already seen it twice and I don't think I need to see it anymore times.

I don't remember there being a "World of Warcraft" movie, but there was definitely a Warcraft movie that wasn't too bad and I do plan on watching it tomorrow.

Oh there definitely was, part 2 & 3 of tales of the past was the peak of machinima videos back in the day. I've watched them twice in the last couple of days.

I agree with a few others here, the story was just so different. I liked the CGI and seeing Azeroth on the big screen, but I could not get over the story the entire time I watched it. I've rewatched it, and still couldn't stop looking at the differences. It feels like a knock-off to me, and I was so excited about the movie ever since they announced it so many years ago :(

Maybe, but you better believe I'm going to watch the South Park Make Love not Warcraft episode.
It's playing on loop nonstop until launch over at Twitch right now :lol:

How old were you when you learned that the song "Live to Win", featured in this episode, was NOT made by the South Park guys as a parody, but was a real song made by former KISS member Paul Stanley?

I was five minutes ago years old.

I don’t think anyone is claiming the Warcraft movie was Oscar material. It’s the best representation on the big screen of the universe we love. I enjoy the parts I love about it, don’t get worked up over what’s lacking.

I took the time to watch it last night. It is fine, but you can definitely tell they tried to tell too much story too short a time. If you don't know the dynamics of all the horde clans and all the chieftains, it's impossible to know/care/follow all their disputes/differences/power struggles.

It's ok, I don't hate it. 6/10

I always was kind of curious how people who actually know the story felt about it. For me, I loved it. It was just enough story and a lot of neat fight scenes. I have no idea about any of the lore but the Orcs looked pretty cool and it kept my attention.

I've read probably 10+ of the books, including Rise of the Horde and The Last Guardian - which the movie was 'based' on.

It took the core stories from those books and kind of mashed them together to make them fit in 2 hours and make it action/exciting/movie style.

People sometimes forget to have fun and not take things to heart. It is a neat movie, with great CGI and is a nice link to our gaming entertainment and lore. The books are fantastic though, I just read through Tides of Darkness again, and I am part way through reading Beyond the Dark Portal. I am definitely not a lore expert, but the books are just great fun - and add more feeling of depth to the game, especially Vanilla WoW, as so many books are before the events of WoW. Great casual/easy read - do it!

Edit: words. And it seems I have read more than I remembered. They are fun.

I'm starting to get hyped. I just watched the movie a few days ago... so it's about time to fire it back up again.
I went through the whole Warcraft universe for preparation :)
