So many of you haters out there acting like you just wasted popcorn and ticket money. Keep in mind, kids, no one is getting paid or making money off these WoW movies. They are the results of the dedicated time someone put into their hobby.While some of you haters don't get it, the notoriety of Iryzia's Candyman is really about how close it comes to recreating Christina Aguilera's Candyman using WoW animation. I know a lot of you guys are hung up on "oh no, more BElfs.", but seriously there are not a lot of model options. The creator here was trying to recreate to dances, set style, and scene cuts as similar as possible. Of course it's not going to have the same flare as the original. That would be impossible. You get it guys? A Mona Lisa painting made of macaroni has nothing to do with what type of pasta you like or with aesthetics. It's about a painting made into pasta.The basic reality is that 98% of WoW machinima movies are gonna "suck" if you expect them to entertain you like a TV show. Another sad fact is that many machinima movie watchers are just plain jerks to the creators. Ironically, having fans is sometimes the worst part of it. The maker of Jimmy: A Warcraft Story and Time Gnomes flat out told his fans to piss off and leave him alone about making more movies.

The trouble is in my opinion that she utterly failed to convey the drive of the song. Her belfs - stand there and spam the 'talk' emote. She got the setting down perfectly, I give her that, but compare this video to demachic's 'Circus' - they are worlds apart in terms of dynamism.

At the end of the day, any machinima has to stand up on its own as a worthy piece of art and/or vehicle of expression. The problem with these belf music videos is that the majority of them bring absolutely nothing new to the genre. Just because someone puts a lot of effort into using limited tools to mimic another artist does not necessarily qualify their work as interesting or creative. I don't accept the 'limited tools' excuse. You can make memorable and entertaining machinima using very little at your disposal.
