Oh, Lore Sjoberg, will you ever stop being awesome? I sure hope not. I've been a fan of his Book of Ratings and his webcomics (NSFW language, I guess) for a while, but apparently he's been writing for Wired as well, and his latest column brings us Sam Raimi's production diary from the Warcraft movie.
It's pretty hilarious throughout. If the real movie is as good as this production diary, in fact, it may be watchable. Some favorite bits:
- "Nerf Shia LaBeouf"
- Why is it that every time we wrap for the day, one of the extras asks me to "open a portal to Dalaran"? Is he asking for drugs?
- If I didn't know better, I'd think someone was paying them for detached body parts.
- ...it turns out I can just give them, like, five things and let them fight over who gets them.
It's a great read altogether, so click over if you have a spare minute.
On a side note, I'm certain there has been at least one good video game movie, although admittedly I can't figure out what it might be.
