WoW Moviewatch: Gilnean Like Me

With Cataclysm slowly approaching, now's a good time to take another look at this worgen masterpiece by Gnomechewer. Gilnean Like Me tells the story of the Gilnean people against the backdrop of the Forsaken invasion. As a group of undead sets foot in town to follow up after a brutal bombardment, the group discovers the terrible curse that has been levied on Greymane's people.

This video is probably one of the most beautiful and stunning portrayals of Gilneas and its wolven fate. I like the sense of horror and stoic resolve portrayed by the narration, as well as the dark sense of inevitability. The moment when the protagonist "wolfs out" is incredibly satisfying; it's a suitable crescendo to the story's build-up. That kind of execution is rare, and my hat is off to Gnomechewer.
