    Yes to vampires
    No to Nazis

    Its terminator 3 girl ( cant remeber the name and IMDB is blocked at work) her being pleasing on the eye is the ONLY thing good about it.

    Directed by the wart on the face of the movie world Uwe Boll who brought you things like House of the dead the movie

    I think the people who are going to be doing this WoW thing are the ones behind Superman (new movie) are they not?

    I'm going to try to trust Blizzard's judgement that they let some decent people take care of it :D

    Im sure i remember someone talking about an EQ movie at some point a few years back.

    While i agree WOW has some very good lore (one of the best things about the game really), games dont make good movies for one reason.

    Games are about your actions and how they effect the people (NPC and PC) around you. When its just watching it doesnt work.

    That said ive heard some good things about Advent Children and I intend to grab a copy at some point.

    In the hands of a good writer and director with a good budget, a few games would be good movies, but ive yet to see a game to movie tie-in with any of the above :).

    If Blizzard get to write the script it should be good.....they have some classic epic moments in their games heh

    infact why not just let blizzard make a full length cgi movie like Advent Children?!?!

    It's not going to be a WoW movie merely a movie based on the older warcraft series. I was talking with a mate and he reckoned it would be based along the campaigns of say Warcraft3 but then again he could be wrong. I'll wait until it comes out to pay judgement as i didn't mind the new Silent Hill movie
