Rob Kazinsky on reactions from critcis on Warcraft movie

divider-postwarcraft-movie-news28divider-post

This is a question from a larger interview with Rob Kazinsky that you can read on PCGamesN

When the movie came out there were two very polar reactions from fanbase and critics. Do you have any thoughts on that?

I could sit here and I could talk about that all day if you’d like. We wanted to make the greatest video game movie ever made and essentially that’s quite a low bar. Do I think we achieved that? Yes, I think we made the greatest video game movie ever made. Does that make it in itself a great movie? I don’t think so. I don’t think we made the perfect film because we couldn’t. We can’t take that story from the lore and do it 100% honestly because the contradictions of when they created it where there, and what works filmically doesn’t work thematically.

So there’s obviously going to be some people who are upset because we didn’t have Mannoroth for example, or any sign of Sargeras or the Legion. We had to make a film that worked on its own, that kind of thing. And we were very limited, essentially, in how we were going to do that.

warcraft-movie-mo-cap2We made a solid film, I think. We made a really good starting point for a universe, and the next films, two and three, are the ones that can expand on that world-building movie that we’ve made. I like to say that we made A New Hope, which by no means is the greatest Star Wars movie, but it sets up the next two until Return of the Jedi, which in my opinion – you can argue with me about Empire as much as you like but I think Return of the Jedi’s a better film.

We will go on in the second and third films, if we get to make them, to make even greater stories and to really expand upon that world until we reach the point where everyone wants to get to, which is Frozen Throne. So we had a hard task there of making this movie into a film that would be critically acclaimed – which it was never going to be critically acclaimed, because it is a video game adaptation. And that’s just the way of the world.

You have to look at how the press received this. It broke records in 19 out of 20 territories on its first release, it broke records in China, it was really well received and well reviewed all the way round the world, apart from North America. And that’s that snobbishness that people have to video game transfers. And that will change, because people will begin to realise that video games have evolved from being Sonic the Hedgehog. They have evolved from a plumber running across a map to save Peach from Kooper every single game. They’ve evolved now to being filmic in their own way. If you look at Assassin’s Creed or Mass Effect, these are great stories, they’re great movies.

As these games begin to transition more and more into film and these stories become more and more told, I think that inevitable snobbishness about video game transfers will dissipate into just being good films. They’re just good stories. And people won’t judge them so harshly because of how they were born.

First look at Orgrim Doomhammer

divider-postwarcraft-movie-rob-kazinskydivider-post
Blending actor Rob Kazinsky and fictional character of Orgrim Doomhammer into one person, crew from Industrial Light and Magic which brought us the Hulk in Avengers prolly pushed the limits of CGI again. Most of fans were sceptical how a heavy CGI Warcraft movie will look, but looking at the first still image of Orgrim Doomhammer from the Warcraft movie, I would say that we don’t have to worry about that anymore cuz it looks freaking awesome 🙂

Warcraft Casting Announcement

divider-postwarcraft-movie-news10divider-post
Few hours ago Legendary Pictures posted an official press release with a details about lead cast of the Warcraft movie. I was little surprised since some of the names that has been word about suddenly vanished and some that had been no words at all signed the deal. Well, I guess thats how Hollywood business works – some get skrewed some sign deals.

Anyway, the names on the list are Travis Fimmel, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell, Rob Kazinsky and Ben Foster with Dominic Cooper in negotiations. First two names were known from previous negotiation rumors, but others are pretty new. I’ll be honest, I am little dissapointed about this cast, especially since it’s a lead cast. Except Dominic Cooper all other actors are kind of meh for my pick.
