Ok guys, I think many of you know what I am talking about. There is a movie in production based on a certain mmorpg that many of us around here don't care for (ME). OK, so it would not be my first choice for a mmo based movie, but warcraft at least has lore with some memorable characters and if the movie is anything like blizzards CGI it will be great visual quality. It is pretty cool to know that mmorpg's can rise to the level of being worth having a movie.
That being said, THIS MUST HAPPEN:
When I first saw the comic, I thought it was a cheap laugh. But it somehow stuck with me and I keep seeing it again and again in my head.
For starters, I was just thinking about a movie I enjoyed called Super 8. You probably know of it as the spelberg throwback to old kid vs unseen scary monster movies. Well I read somewhere that soon to be starwars director JJ Adams was also behind Super 8, and that was pretty reassuring for me as far as starwars goes, because Super 8 was a great throwback.
Then I was thinking, how in the world could a movie be made about WoW without sucking terribly?? Then I realized it... WoW has always had a lot of pop culture references and pokes fun of itself a lot. Why not make a throwback to fantasy stories like Narnia and the countless sci-fi channel movies about kids discovering magic, etc? It really could work well as long as it does not take itself seriously, and it would be a fun twist on an otherwise mediocre video-game to movie. It would be a great way for wow's movie to separate itself from other failed video-game to movies such as doom or tomb raider or who know what else I cant even remember them because they are so mediocre.
PS, lets be classy guys and not discuss if wow is a good game or not. Instead talk about mmorpgs into movies, etc.
