Trailer Time: Warcraft, Second Trailer

AttheMovies_t670

Here’s what Tom had to say about the last Warcraft trailer when it dropped last month:

So, a new trailer for the Warcraft movie dropped.  Trailers generally don’t say much, but I think this one set a new record for not saying anything.  What is this movie about?  I have no idea.

The latest trailer just came out and, well, Tom already said most of what needs to be said.  Except for one thing: what’s up with the text “An unthinkable threat”?  These are Orcs!  You live in the world of Warcraft and you don’t think Orcs are a threat?  WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN LIVING ALL YOUR LIFE?  They’re Orcs.  They’re…well…they’re your orcs.  They’re like your El Guapo, everybody has one but yours happens to be actual Orcs.

This movie is going to be so bad.  Check out the latest train-wreck of quick cuts comprising a trailer after the break.

What Are The Chances Captain America Civil War Outgrosses Batman V. Superman On Opening Weekend?

civilwarReaders of this blog and listeners to our podcast know that I love box office numbers.  I’ve also recently become intrigued by the Good Judgment project after hearing about them on the Freakonomics podcast.  Their website has a number of political, news, and pop culture questions they invite the public to predict and they recently asked what were the chances that Civil War would outgross Batman v. Superman (which brought in an amazing $166M on opening weekend).

I was surprised to see so many people saying Civil War would outgross Batsoup with almost not thought into the matter, so I decided to make my own prediction and analysis.  Jump after the break to read why I think it is unlikely for Civil War to beat Batsoup and let me know your thoughts in the comments.

Defending The Grade: Ryan’s Batsoup Rating

  The discussion around Batman v Superman will likely continue…well, forever. After our initial ratings Prime Blogger Tom felt the need to defend his generous grade of the movie.  I thought he did a good job explaining his rationale so I thought I would return the favor by defending my own rating the movie a 3 out of 10. Jump after the break for my full reasoning.

The Complete List Of Everything Wrong With Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice

batmanvsupermanI may be late to the game in finally seeing Batsoup but at least I didn’t have to brave the crowds to see it. While my fellow Gabbing Geeks have given the movie much higher ratings (above 5 out of 10) I thought rather than just give a review I would list everything wrong with the movie. Warning: spoilers after the break. Second warning: it’s a long list. But if I missed anything let me know in the comments.
