Maybe it's Warcraft in space, and is actually a Starcraft movie. That font is definitely closer to Starcrafts than Warcrafts.

Many people are speculating that it's just a screencap of an animated intro for the movie. It mightn't be the actual title font.

Of course something like a logo doesn't do jackshit to the movie's quality, but like mentioned, it's a bit odd to change it from the style it has had since 1994.

...but yeah, show me a teaser or something to get me excited of a movie that's still over year and a half away from it's release (at least) and based on a game that has steadily grown to be more and more uninteresting. Grandted, Warlords of Draenor will probably pump some excitment to my body again and if Blizzard would decide on getting back to RTS Warcraft before the movie's release, that could definetly get me all aboard the hypetrain. But as of now...mneeeeeeh.

But tbh probably wouldn't bother me if I wasn't a graphic designer.

Nah I think it bothers just about everyone. I'm not a graphic designer but I think it looks like crap.

I take a peek over here after months of inactivity and there's no new discussion about the movie? Wot?! Not that I'm losing my mind over waiting for it, but I at least expected to see some complaining about it!



It...doesn't look that bad from that. A bit too much of a CGI vibe from some of those sets, but nothing too awful. One can spot the Golem Harvest from that and I hope that's about as far as they go with their game references. If I'll end up sitting in a theatre to watch this and see some goofy soldier named "Jenkins" rushing to a battle all by himself, I'm gonna projectile vomit through the projection screen.

Full trailer tomorrow, we'll see then.

Got to agree that the stormwind scene did seem a little wierd probably becouse of the CGI but overall I'm not disapointed yet, hopefully won't be!

Even with the full trailer though won't know for sure until I actually see the whole movie. Don't really want the trailer to reveal too much either like to see how it kinda will look and feel but I don't want to know how it goes down. Well OK that does sound strange since i know the Warcraft story but I think you get what I mean.

I found it so decidedly underwhelming. The world design/scenery was amazing. Stormwind and Ironforge are probably the best looking fictional cities I've ever seen, but everything beyond that was gash.

The pacing was poor, the story was sub-par. I know that it was never supposed to be in the main timeline but so many things are different for seemingly no reason. Like
Spoiler:
Lothar's duel with Blackhand at the end. First off, they should've saved that for the sequel that will undoubtedly be set in the second war. Second, they could have at least let Blackhand not die in 5 seconds flat. Wtf? He's one of the greatest warriors in the Horde. His name is literally Blackhand the DESTROYER. And Lothar dodges once and stabs him twice, GG? Whaaat?

And while we're on duels, what the flying fuck was that shit with Durotan and Gul'dan??? Gul'dan is an exciting villain because while he has a lot of power through fel magic he's physically weak and dishonorable. He's the anti-thesis to the orc warrior culture. He's a frail orc with no sense of honor. Ruthless, cunning and manipulative. Having him hulk out the way he did in that scene ruins everything about him that makes him a great villain. Same with his reaction to Lothar's victory. WHAT? Why does he lose his cool over that? It made no sense. He's the sneaky, cunning villain. Not the brutish hothead that just screams for DEATH DEATH DEATH KILL THEM ALLLLLL.

And while I'm talking about characters. Medivh was shit. The movie goes into exactly 0 effort to make it seem believable that Medivh was a bad guy. For most of the movie he's helping them along, protecting humans, killing orcs. Next moment he goes "Oh hey btw I was evil all along". There was no build up to that at all. In fact it was so non-existant that I'd figured they'd just cut that entirely right up untill the point where Khadgar sees that Medivh's eyes are green.

Garona was meh. They had a great opportunity to explore the conflict in her heart, torn between her burning wish to fit in a clan vs. the trust that Llane placed in her and her obedience to Gul'dan. They didn't do that at all. She was a savage beast one second and the next second she was blindingly loyal to the humans. Garona murdering King Llane should have been the big climax of the film as the towers of Stormwind come crumbling down. But nope, instead we get a Garona who embodies exactly nothing of what made her part in the First War so interesting.

Same can be said for Lothar and Khadgar, though. They were supposed to be childhood friends with Medivh. Khadgar is even addressed as the Guardian's apprentice, but then we hear he's renounced his vows (????) and then when they go to Karazhan, Medivh has no idea who he is... What? And they treat him like an untested child. This is fucking Khadgar, and he's presented to us like an insecure teen. Lothar's friendship to Khadgar, also, is completely unbelievable. All we see them do for the first many scenes they're in together is insult each other, and then all of a sudden behind the scene they became besties? Come on. We need to see some bonding.

Medivh's relationship to Garona was also competely cut. And in fact not only did they not pursue that plot, they also made more or less every male human who interacted with her fall in love with her?? And she became a romance interest for fucking Lothar? (Also, I'm not even sure any of the humans know his name is actually Anduin since he's never addressed as such)

As for the rest of the orcs, we only ever hear 6 named orcs speak. Grom Hellscream is in the film. Kargath Bladefist is in the film. Ner'zhul is in the film. Kilrogg Deadeye, Eitrigg and Drek'thar, they're all in the film. All of them are neglected to being just... Unnamed background orcs. I hate that. The only reason I knew that Grom was important was because I knew what Gorehowl looks like. With the infuriatingly slow pacing of the story they could've easily found some scenes to cut to make room for some story for the orcs. I wanted to see the clans interact with eachother, Durotan arguing with Grom about what to make of all that fel shit, etc. etc.

And in the end, we don't even get Stormwind sacked. The film ends with the orcs stranded in the Black Morass, no way back to Draenor since apparently they need Medivh to open the portal and he's dead, their army is diminished and weakened, plus half of them don't respect Gul'dan anymore. Stormwind still stands, so they probably won't manage to besiege that. And even if they do, what's to stop Ironforge, Lordaeron and Silvermoon to come to their aid? Toward the end, it seems like a possibility.

In the end, I went in with no expectations of being blown away. I assumed I was going to see a mediocre film and be resoundingly "Meh" about it. It still managed to disappoint me. I honestly can't recommend watching it to anybody. I legitimately found myself just waiting for it to end for the last 40 or so minutes of the film.

There wasn't much of an explanation for anything either tbh. I had mixed feelings while watching it. I might have to watch it again to form a decent opinion on it.

Another thing that bugged me. Where was the holy light? Where were the Clerics of Northshire? Where was Uther Lightbringer and the first paladins?

And wth was that Alodi bullshit.

Honestly, story wise, I feel like this could've just as well been a piece of elaborate fan fiction.

Haven't seen the movie yet but..

Clerics aside, weren't the paladins a thing in the second war?

From what i heard though and what most people figured the movie would not follow the lore too well so i'm sure one could nitpick it to hell in that. Then again i'm sure i'd have to see it for myself to actually see how they executed the story for a honest opinion.

Edit: Especially if they changed things a lot and merged some wars and storylines together.

To me they captured the very core, spirit, of Warcraft which for me was the essential part of it, from visuals to humour.

Hence I loved it!

Not sure it would been better if they had tried to pull in a ton of more characters in one movie, the premiere crowd loved it, so im not alone! Which is why I recommend people to watch it and then form their own opinion.

Found it underwhelming myself. The action etc was nice and so on, but... so many errors lore- and otherwise. Dalaran for instance, major flaw there. As for the rest, Ixirar pretty much nailed it. "Meh" is about as much I can say about it.

They had a lot of easter eggs for veteran fans of the franchise, which was nice I guess. Yes the world presented to us felt like Warcraft, but so many of the characteristics that made the conflict of the first war so interesting, those being why I loved the idea that they went back and looked at that for the film, were cut to make room for pointless bonding scenes with the most wooden acting I've seen since Attack of the Clones. Honestly, the bonding scene between Khadgar, Lothar and Garona was nothing short of pointless. It didn't serve a purpose. Garona made an impossible claim (that she's carrying her mother's tusk. Her mother is a draenei, they don't have fucking tusks) and then they talked about sex for a while. I would've much prefered that that be cut out and then instead we see more of the orcs. The one thing Duncan Jones did well is that the orcs feel like -orcs-. Instead of continuously telling us how Khadgar is an awkward insecure teen and spending so much screen time showing us how all the other chars bully him relentlessly, how about shooting a few scenes where Durotan talks to Grom? Or where Kargath, Kilrogg and Ner'zhul interact with Blackhand and Gul'dan. They didn't need to have major parts, but having Grommash Fucking Hellscream presented to us as just a cool looking background thug doesn't do the char justice in how instrumental he was to the events leading up to and during the First War. They also don't really present the clans to us. If I didn't know a ton about the lore already, I'd have gone away thinking that there were two Orc factions: The Horde and the Frostwolf Clan. They could've easily fit in a few scenes where we see the Bleeding Hollow hunting parties stalk through the woods with their poisoned blades, or showing us the Warsong wolf riders.

Again, the film set itself up nicely. But it just fails to execute on any of the things it sets out to do. There are a lot of compelling plot points, both first and second war, that they can't tell now because they cut the requirements for them to happen in favour of cliché scenes with shoddy dialogue and wooden delivery. And humour-... I don't know. What humour? That's actually one of the biggest flaws of the film I think. Warcraft has always been the serious fantasy story that doesn't take itself too seriously. But the film didn't feel like that. The film felt like Duncan Jones wished he was Peter Jackson. Many of the heroic scenes were pointless because they film had failed to invest its audience sufficiently in the characters. Callan's scene at Blackrock Mountain (btw, why doesn't Durotan know the word for "Mountain"? He is literally the chieftain of a clan that lives in one. No, don't tell me it's that he doesn't know the human language word, because he speaks Orcish. Why does he not know the Orcish word for "mountain"?) was obviously meant to be a turning point for Lothar and a very dramatic moment. But it wasn't. Callan should've just been cut entirely from the film. All his scenes were irrelevant to the plot.
