Once rumored to be in the running for the reigns to The Hobbit, Sam Raimi has nonetheless nabbed his fantasy epic with a film adaptation of the Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) World of Warcraft. Known to shutins (and the family members who cry for them) across the globe, World of Warcraft follows hot elves, cow-men, armored bodybuilders and a bunch of other “Mage/Paladin” named avatars across a fantastical realm full of perverts, boob-oglers and mythical beasts. Along the way, players blast, cut, stab and pummel other gamers and critters with varying levels of skill attained by pissing hours of their life away in a dark bedroom.
Of course, I’ve never played the game, but I judge those who do. That means you too, Mr. T.
In terms of the movie, I hear WOW has lots of rich history and mythology, which is cool, and Sam Raimi can be fantastic when he wants to, so this is all good news.
