"The Scourge" is a two man-project about a peasant who's involved with the Scourge war just before Warcraft 3. The antagonist will be affected, of course, and doesn't stay "a good guy" through the events of the movie.

The trailer definitely worked to get my interest. I liked the dark and gloomy animation style, and the use of heartbeats to underscore tension. The trailer does have a few cliches, like the angsty-man-kneels-by-a-tombstone. But these things are cliches for a reason, and the trope communicates that some tragedy is affecting the central character. And since genre pieces are almost always character-driven, focus on the antagonist is valid and to be encouraged.

My only real criticism of the trailer would be pacing. The fades between action/imagery to verbiage then back to action/imagery are a little slower than I'd like them to be. The narrative hook is lost in the long transitions, and we have to be re-engaged several times throughout the trailer.

WoW Moviewatch: The Scourge - Episode I trailer

Nov 18th, 2008

Fal Bulon has a new, upcoming series called The Scourge. In case you don't recognize the name, Fal Bulon is the same German author who brought us Revenge of Akama . Like his previous work, "The Scourge" is spoken in German, and subtitled in English. We only have a trailer to look at right now, but we can be hopeful for the upcoming movie.

"The Scourge" has the same high-end production values we saw in "Revenge of Akama." The action is distinct and effective. Fal Bulon uses the lighting in his scenery to lend urgency and intensity to his characters. Overall, it was definitely fun to watch.

The trailer doesn't have a lot of plot indications, which is probably fine for a trailer. We know that the Scourge are attacking, and the orcs and humans are both caught up in it. We have epic indications of leaders making hard choices, and we have a whole bunch of fighting. (Knowing is half the battle, but the other half always comes down to fighting.)

Ultimately, this is a great trailer, and I can't wait to see the movie.

Two questions? One, is this gonna be a world wide movie or how can we watch it? And two, why is the trailer in German but the words in the trailer are in English? haha

I have no idea, i think it is a personal movie not made by a publisher or whatnot. But i could be wrong.

Maybe it's made in german!? English subtitles are awesome any how even on english films.
