WoW Moviewatch: 12 o'Clock to Northrend


Mushanga's
entry to the BlizzCon 2009 machinima contest was this satirical piece called The 12 o'Clock to Northrend. It's a pretty wide and varied spoof of dozens of movies and films. It almost certainly has something to amuse anybody.

This is actually a director's cut of the video, running a little longer than the BlizzCon three minute limit. I enjoyed the Titanic references, of course, but my absolute favorite is at the end. It seems only fitting to me that Leeroy Jenkins would find his final match in Northrend, in the mountains. Be sure to watch all the way through the credits.

The movie felt a little disjointed to me, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I suspect it's because of the film's high density of one-liners and sight gags, which can be very difficult to string together narratively. But since each joke felt worth it, I'm not sure there's much help for it. Overall, this was a pretty funny movie, and I enjoyed it.
