WoW Moviewatch: The Grind: 3 Minutes


It's been a while since we've seen a new episode of The Grind, so it was great to hear they'd created a new episode for entry into the BlizzCon 2009 machinima contest. The Grind: 3 Minutes did not win. As Macheath put it on Myndflame.com, "it not only didn't win, it really didn't win."

That's kind of a shame, because I thought The Grind: 3 Minutes was funny as heck. I laughed out loud during a few of the gags, and the frenetic, energetic pace of the video kept me engaged and entertained. That the author managed this pace without resorting to Robot Chicken style micro-clips is that much more impressive, and reinforces the power of quick dialogue. I'm not sure there's a story taking place here, and the whole thing seems like a stage for that witty exchange between the characters.

All in all, I thought the video was strong and funny. Here's hoping it won't be too long before we see another episode.

Interested in the wide world of machinima? We have new movies every weekday here on WoW Moviewatch! Have suggestions for machinima we ought to feature? Toss us an e-mail at machinima AT wow DOT com.
