    On that note I'm really happy that one Tanked and I hope future idea's about our childhood movies remain untouched from political correctness and bad directing.
    Well I am sure the Roadhouse remake will change all that.....
    Are they seriously remaking Roadhouse, well, all i can say is i hope they aren't going to reprise Swayzes role in that film with a female version of Arnold Swarzenager O.o
    Ronda Rousey is the new Swayze! 

    Seriously I have no problem with female leads or female action heros/stars but stop it with the dang reboots already.

    Brenics ~ Just to point out I do believe Chris Roberts is going down as the man who cheated backers and took down crowdfunding for gaming.

    This could have been a loss leader to help renew subscriptions to world or Warcraft.
    They could have spent less money with greater impact developing better content.
    Goddamned right. They set themselves up for failure by pumping way too much money into a not all that great film idea, and then dug themselves in even deeper by shooting the moon on the advertising blitz when the studio realized they didn't have a clue how to market the damn thing.

    Honestly seeing how the writer and director are best known for small budget films where the biggest effort was on story and character interaction, and not a fuck ton of needless special effects, I think the gigantic budget is the direct reason this film is far less entertaining then it could have been. With that much money involved its impossible to keep the pencil dicks in accounting from continually meddling with your project leaving the people directly in charge of making the damn film in the passenger seat.

    "You have kept me at your beck and call for fifteen years. I shall never again do what you demand of me. By every rule of single combat, from this moment your life belongs to me. Is that not correct? Then I shall simply declare you dead. In all of your dealings with me, you'll do me the courtesy to conduct yourself as a dead man. I have submitted to your notions of honor long enough. You will now submit to mine."

    It was not a very good movie. Generic fantasy.

    Same, was disappointed all around.

    Also the camera always seemed to close to the actors, and the fights seemed to be too close too.

    Cant put my finger totally on it but the camera sucked.

    I guess the film costs explains why Blizzard haven't exactly been generous with their game content the past two years. Pay a sub for no new content and a full priced expac. I suppose if people pay they will keep taking their money.

    I think this may also give a peek at the ratio of Wow players still remaining in the US/EU compared to China. Only a fraction...

    Everyone seems to dislike it here, but I liked the movie honestly as did my dad and friends.
