WoW Moviewatch: Grom Is Not Pleased

The Warlords of Draenor cinematic practically begs for redubbing, in which the oh-so-serious dialog is swapped out for something a little different. Grom Is Not Pleased by Kakio isn't the first cinematic remix we've posted, and it probably won't be the last... but it might manage to hang on to the title of the strangest.

In this version of the trailer, the Iron Horde is waging a war against vegetables and have perhaps made a few too many IKEA trips. But things work out in the end, more or less. Sure, it's silly, and it might not make a lot of narrative sense (where did they find an IKEA in the first place?), but it's likely to at least get a laugh out of you.

WoW Moviewatch: Back to Outland

Did you like Back to Northrend? If so, then you can go back to Kakio with Back to Outland. It's essentially the same concept, but executed in Outland instead. Similar to what I said with Back to Northrend, this new video is really starting to show the growth of Kakio's skills. Still some trouble with voice acting, but you can really feel the improvement. Great job, and nice work!

WoW Moviewatch: Back to Northrend

Kakio's new movie attempts to fills us in to the recent events back in Northrend. What's going on in the icy north? According to Back to Northrend, it's mostly a bunch of mobs standing around telling bad jokes. Which, frankly, I'm totally okay with.

This video is a little bit of a paradox. On one hand, I found myself enjoying the jokes, the timing, and even most of the narration. The animation was just fine, made up of in-game graphics. The challenge is the vocal recording. That Death Knight-like echo was pretty distracting, and took away from the overall enjoyment of the parody. Still, it's pretty good stuff, and a step in the right direction for Kakio.

WoW Moviewatch: How To Be Annoying in World of Warcraft

Work Warning: There's some mild cursing in here, but nothing terribly crazy.

I don't know that we needed a guide on How To Be Annoying in World of Warcraft, but Kakio apparently thought we did. This video really boils down to about 5 minutes of various pet peeves throughout the game. The video had a viable premise and the technical skills were fine, but I'm not sure it ever really hit its pace. The sound quality kept most of the jokes from shining, even if the punchline would have been otherwise funny.

In terms of stepping up the game, I think Kakio would need to focus on that sound quality issue and maybe tightening up the plot. Satirical videos like this one do best with short, to-the-point punchlines. The longer the video drags on, the more burden is placed on each joke. Like I said, it's a decent video, but it doesn't quite knock it out the park.

WoW Moviewatch: Two Battles At Once

Who doesn't love a good gnome mask? Kakio opens his new video Two Battles At Once with a healthy dose of it, promising more gnome shenanigans throughout the video. Two Battles At Once is a pretty big upgrade over his previous video, which is promising for what we might see in the future.

This video includes the complaint that the Alliance always wins the battlegrounds. That might be the first time I've ever heard that phrase is machinima, so my hat's off to that bit of creativity. The gnome joke is still the best bit, though.
