worldofwarcraft1B No RX Imitrex, efore I get into it, please observe that 'fail' is used in a grammatically correct, non-imbecilic way in the above title -- twelve-year-olds please take note. Imitrex usa, I Bloggated about the news that Michigan native and Bruce Campbell chum Sam Raimi -- he of Evil Dead and Spiderman fame -- is signed on to direct a possible World of Warcraft movie. Woo-hoo, 40mg Imitrex, 100mg Imitrex, another video game movie added to the mountain of epic failures (note -- that's 'failures' not just 'fail,' are you paying attention little Jimmy?) -- but why do these adaptations always fail, Imitrex paypal. 200mg Imitrex, (Again, that's correct usage -- it isn't hard) I've rolled around a few thoughts on the matter at BG this week like a sick man with a lozenge, Imitrex australia, Imitrex coupon, and came to a few tentative conclusions:

I don’t think video game movie fail because video games are shallow, I think they fail because video games aren’t conventional narratives, 20mg Imitrex, Imitrex mexico, and movie makers by and large have not figured out how to translate them. The stuff that really works in comic films is the stuff that has already been worked out ahead of time by the writers and artists of the comic book itself — when it comes to video games, Imitrex india, 150mg Imitrex, there is a blank spot where character should be, and few makers of video game movies have shown an ability to fill it, Imitrex overseas. Couple that with the fact that video game films have, so far, been lower budget efforts and, I suspect, taken a lot less seriously by all concerned than even the once lowly comic book properties, and you have a recipe for sub-mediocrity.

Somewhat inevitably, the post almost devolves into a screed against green orcs, but I pulled away at the last second before I really alienated my audience, No RX Imitrex. Imitrex craiglist, Suffice it to say, I think Raimi is a damn good director, 50mg Imitrex, 250mg Imitrex, and I'm always happy to hear about big budget fantasy movies, but this project fails (ahem) to excite me, 1000mg Imitrex. 500mg Imitrex, Of all the good fantasy material out there to choose from, a World of Warcraft-based movie is the thing someone decided is worth spending time and money on, 30mg Imitrex. 750mg Imitrex, Philistines.

Thanks for taking a stand against the grammatical failures of today’s youth; although my prediction is that they will still fail to comprehend the lesson.

I agree, it’s not like they’d be reading this blog, anyway. Too many words.

I agree as to the general statement about video game spinoff flicks, but I can’t help but shake the feeling that a WoW movie will not suffer from the same defects.

If 50% of the people who have played the game/read the books go to the movies, thats about 15 million people. From the get go that gives you a larger budget and a better team to play with. Also, I feel that you underestimate Blizzard’s professionalism with respect to the WoW franchise. They won’t allow a poor movie to be shown and have the dinero to back that up.

I hope you’re right, and it very well could be we’ll see something different now that we have a truly big budget undertaking rather than the little Uwe Boll b-movies that seem more typical of video game adaptions. I don’t change my opinion on the worthiness of the source material, though, though I also will admit I’m not intimately acquainted with it. I still think the lack of an agreed-upon shared narrative or characters will weaken it’s appeal to fans and non-fans alike.

Such a massive potential market really is a game-changer though, and Raimi is a good director . . . but I still hate green orcs.

I enjoy playing WoW but am definitely leery of a movie based on it…once bitten and twice shy.

WoW does have a pretty rich story with a depth of history to it which could give Raimi or a some other decent screenwriter a lot of elements to draw from for a good story. I don’t know a lot of that history because, frankly, I just like completing questions, killing baddies and taking their stuff. But it could be done. And I like Raimi and would be curious as to where he’s going to take it.

The problem is all of the other elements Bill mentions in his blog. Hollywood just doesn’t often get it right with these things. I’d have thought Wizards of the Coast would have had enough respect for their product to not let the travesty that was the D&D movie be made…but, alas, EPIC FAILure. ;>)

Bill Ward July 27, 2009 at 7:11 pm

Oh yea, the D&D movie was a whole different level of bad.

We’ll see if big money and a big market won’t make a difference in the case of WoW.
