Judging By The Cover: Judging Warcraft

Judging Warcraft

Warcraft the game the movie.

Yeah the overly big teeth really didn't translate well into movie form, did it? Looked better in the games when it was cartoonish and stylized.

Here like Yahtzee said, it just makes them look dumb and clueless. Like a turkey.
I wonder if orks drown in the rain because they can't close their mouths?
Jesus Christ doesn't need to go to war. Just ask his dad to turn the shower on!

I thought that was the point of the orc look. On one hand you have the slackjaw that is funny with the peons and common warriors but on the other it makes you underestimate the ones that are just as smart as any human.

This really reminded me that I don't understand why Blizzard decided against just making a 2 hour long cutscene.

I always figured it was visual shorthand for distinguishing between humans and Orks. Without the teef they just look like dorky green humans with obscene dreadlocks.

That is not woad - THIS is woad, for FREEDOM!

do Orcs have their teeth/tusks pierced in the games as well, it's been a while and I forgot. Looks quite silly

This movie is gonna be a real abomination if there aren't any ABOMINATIONS in it.
It'll be a real NO GO without any KODO.
All I'm saying is, they won't sell any TICKETS without any HIPPOGRYPHS.
I bet when Mr.RedFace got his tooth pierced he caused a mighty EARTHQUAKE, at least of magnitude 6.
Oh well, I guess it's too late, they're working with Hollywood. I guess their conTRACT is SEALED.

And I think the reason Jesus our L&S looks so COLD is because Jaina just went invisible on him, and that's not dust, it's water droplets from her elemental.

also, I guarnatee this will turn into a trilogy if the first movie is successful. "Warcraft" (1) will be about Orcs & Humans, then in 2017 there'll be "Warcraft: The Lich King(and, the night elves, tauren, and trolls)" and in 2018, "Warcraft: The Planar Abyss"(Burning legion, demons&shit).

in all seriousness, please, blizzard, drop this stupid advertisment for the next WoW installment and MAKE STARCRAFT: GHOST. GODDAMN. KERRIGAN WAS JUSTIFIED IN JOINING THE ZERG, THEY TREATED HER BETTER THEN HER OWN SPECIES, AND ALL 110 MINUTES OF WARCRAFT:THE GAME:THE MOVIE HAS NO CHANCE OF SURPASSING THE ~5 MINUTE CUTSCENE AT THE END OF BROOD WARS.

I killed him. My pride killed him.

"Hello, future people; we're sorry!" just made my day. Summed up just about everything going on right now. I like to think if the future IS a blighted dystopia, the people then will look at the post-apocalyptic movies, TV shows, books, and video games that survive from the present and wonder out loud "The people of the past were WANTING all THIS to happen?!"

He's Mad Max: The Woad Warrior.

So.... no third coming, then?
I can understand why soldiers would not like that, cause as far as I understand theology then they'll be out of a job 'cause of peace.

Yes they do and some of them wear rings in the tusk like Finger Rings:

And yet anyone that has played WoW would tell you that Jesus Christ, Our Lord's shoulder pads aren't NEARLY big enough to be canon. :3

Aye. The huge shoulderpads are such a problem, I hear they're giving people the option to hide them now. Even cloth user's shoulders look ridiculous, and a lot of the plate ones would kill the user.

To be canon, they need at least four more layers of much thicker "moral support" straps, the top layer having a very large metal lion crest on it.

World of whatnow? Never heard of it. Looks like another Tolkien train ride. I forgot to bring my ride tolkiens. No orcs with jetpacks though, i'd imagine. Now there's an idea...

Is that?...do they?...but?...they exist?? From this very world of whatnot? Train Token would be proud!

Oh man, I forgot about Two Girls One Cup.

Thanks, Yahtzee...

Did you know that Yahtzee rhimes with Nazi? Ha!

Ass.

Oh, so I'm not the only one who thinks Durotan's pierced tooth looks absolutely fucking stupid. Seriously, I wince every time I look at them, as well as wonder how the FUCK he managed to get those piercings in without an electric drill (or without splitting the entire tooth).

I know which muvi I'm going totally avoid.
