    Hollywood's habit of turning hit videogames into unwatchable movies continues unabated.

    "Boasting more than 2,000 visual effects shots, it’s dispiriting to think about the time, energy, planning and precision that went into “Warcraft” when the final product brings to mind those animated advertisements for iPhone app games. So good at making the most outlandish elements of his first two films seem completely credible, Jones can’t find a way to get this cartoony spectacle to soar. His heartfelt approach to the material only underlines the silliness."

    "Imagine 'Battlefield Earth' without the verve and you get this sludgy, tedious fantasy adventure, a fun-starved dud that’s not even unintentionally hilarious."

    Why would a WoW player expect this to be good :scratch:

    I thought last summer was a bad movie season, but 2016 appears well on it's way of out-sucking 2015

    They've milked enough $$ out of that game to make 100 big budget flops.

    This. I've played WoW on and off since Vanilla and I can assure you I was fully expecting this movie to be absolutely awful.

    I played WOW when it was released. Spent probably 1000+ hours playing Blizzard games, WOW, Diablo 2, Warcraft, Starcraft, Hearthstone and now Overwatch. I know they're in no way perfect, but I am pretty close to a Blizzard fanboy. I love their games, and spend a lot of time playing them.

    I have no idea who the fuck this movie was made for, because it wasn't for me or for people like me. Blizzard has my support in damn near everything they do, but this movie is not at all interesting to me.
