    I'm skeptical of the movie, but not the man. Evil Dead is obviously a stroke of genius. And Spiderman is one of the few comic-to-movie stories that wasn't butchered. To be fair, Warcraft has a great deal of history behind it. The RTS games had a stupid amount of story, and a very addictive one at that. I'll reserve judgment until I've seen a trailer or two.

    But LOTR was an epic novel of high quality, not an MMO.

    Well actually I think they've been planning for the movie before LOTR, but they had a hard time finding an studio, people told them "fantasy movies didn't work", but after LOTR the answer changed to "oh the bar is set too high now".

    (this is what I remember for a panel about it at least)

    As for the director announcement, I think Spider-Man was fairly well translated to the big screen

    EDIT:

    found a 2007 Blizzcon panel about the movie [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSG2DiejFJ8"]Legendary Pictures Panel[/ame]

    Warcraft lore was awesome, and would have made a great movie... until WoW, where they beat generous portions of it with the stupid-stick. Now I think too much of it is laughable to make a film of any depth, unless they lock their current writing staff up in cages and only let people with real talent touch it.

    I can see it now.. it will be called "WoW: Mirrored effect!!!11""

    It will be 10 classes against...the same 10 classes just different skin changes.
    I've hated wow.. then i played wow... then i hated it more.

    The movie will get amazing $$ though, as all these people still play it now they will go crazy for the movie.. and furries.

    Did you ever play Warcraft III? I hated WoW, but the other Warcraft games are quite nice.

    I agree that Warcraft had an awesome story behind (though it still had its odd loopholes) prior to WoW. Some of the books are even damn good (I read the Well of Eternity trilogy), but if this movie is like WoW, which it will probably be since they want to make money instead of a quality product, then I'm quite worried.

    so the plot is going to be some random guy gets a quest and starts lfg? Then starts using other WoW talk?

    Or are we just gonna watch some guy just press number keys....

    I'm gonna think it will be based on the Warcraft Lore instead of World of Warcraft.

    Warcraft has a really good storyline! Honest!

    You're the kind of person I plot to punch in the dick if I ever meet them


    Anyway, I've always wanted a Warcraft movie but I was hoping it'd be by Blizzard just because their cut scenes are so beautiful

    Except one of these is an epic novel and the other is an epic piece of shit.

    ... If you're wondering which is which, Tolkien only wrote one of them... In fact, as far as I can tell, only of those had the benefit of having an actual writer...


    ... In other words, here's a WoW movie: [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xq-jT0p3up0"]YouTube - Longest Rail Grind?... Maybe[/ame]


    ...I take that back, that clip is vastly more impressive than everything in WoW, and requires actual skill to do.

    I'm looking forward more to the Bioshock movie. I'm just desperate for it to work well.

    And yeah, TF2 movie would be awesome.

    A two hour long Meet the Team movie would bring tears of joy to my eyes.
