I think the opposite, its at 8/10 on IMDB wich is only word of mouth

It having 8/10 on IMDB at this moment means nothing... that score will probably go below 7/10 sooner or later. Every movie opens up with a much higher rating compared to what it actually ends up with.

maybe, but that is what the people say now, so that is what they tell the others. wich is definately not " very bad word of mouth" its actually very good.

It may go down, it probably will, but even though its what it is

It made the most money of any movie based on Warcraft ever! See, recordbreaking!

By that logic R&C was the greatest animated movie of all time to feature a Lombax.  :p

I like the way you're thinking so.... I can roll with that!



I found it to be ok as well. The problem is that it's actually a bit short IMO. They didn't give characters and backgroundd enough time to develop so everything became a bit shoppy and not as emotional engaging as it could have been. It was good, but not great.



Honestly, it bothers me when fans are so damn negative. Really? You struggle to like THIS movie, but every Marvel movie is fucking gold?

Come on, you're all gamers! Support the movies! Ratchet and Clank didn't suck, this movie doesn't suck, so go FREAKING see them! What is the harm?

Videogame movies will KEEP getting negative hype if no one is watching them. Seriously? You want Angry Birds and Tomb Raider to be the most successful video game movies?

Duncan Jones is a brilliant writer and director. He's also David Bowie's SON. Check out his previous films, like Moon and Source Code. He does some killer sci-fi/thriller stuff.

Sounds to me like you are blindly expecting people to like the movie based on its premise and not its execution.  Also, a guy being a famous guys kid doesn't mean he is capable of directing a great movie off what amounts to be a poor script.  Even the best directors in the business aren't able to take poor writing and turn it into award fodder.

Video game movies need to be made well to get people to watch them.  Poorly made video game movies need to be ignored and panned so that studios know the formula they are using doesn't work.  This way they go back to the drawing board and try to get it right.

I don't get it. Yeah, you may not be the BIGGEST fan of the film, but it's the ONLY film. You don't exactly get to be picky. If this one bombs, there may not BE another one.

Yeah thanks, no shit. 

 

But you can't expect them to just waste millions and millions of dollars all the time. THIS IS the ONLY Warcraft movie. If it bombs, why should they waste money to make another? 

 

Go actually SEE it, instead of being a judgmental prick, who follows metacritic or rottentomatoes or whatever. Form your own opinion.

Well if you are gonna resort to petty name calling then I suppose there is just no getting into a good healthy debate with you.  Have a great day.  I hope you enjoy your poorly made, poorly reviewed, and poorly received movie.

Again not true. Its not poorly made, it may be poorly reviewd by some critics but its not poorly receveid as I already mentioned. People actually like it, you have to acknowledge that

You don't get it do you? Most of the 10's the movie received are from warcraft fans who haven't even seen the movie. That's why the rating is going down as time goes by. It's not an indicator of its word of mouth.
