WoW Moviewatch: Slashdance vs. Ulduar

We recently asked our intrepid WoW Insider staff about some of their favorite machinima. First up among the answers is Dawn Moore's favorite, Slashdance vs. Ulduar. In this movie, a raid group prepares to face Ulduar, only to find the raid is much more difficult than they were expecting.

This is what Dawn has to say about the video:

The setup is so perfectly wanky. The use of those long pans with some epic score has become so cliché among novice film and machinima makers in recent years that you kind of groan when you see them. To see the fourth wall come down on it at the end is absolutely delightful.

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 email at moviewatch@wowinsider.com.

WoW Moviewatch: slashdance vs. Ulduar


When I saw slashdance vs. Ulduar for the first time, I wasn't sure whether I should laugh or cry. This is slashdance's version of a raid-patch trailer, something to help get its members riled up and ready to go raid. Of course, it's obviously more of a parody about those kinds of similar movies. But this piece is much more tailored to the "rest of us." You know, those of us who struggle a bit more with the content.

I can't really discuss too much about the movie without spoiling the plot. But it's slashdance, who's very well known for the Redshift movies. The author's eye for quality is definitely apparant here, and I like the wry sense of wit. I also have to admit, I've been the guy to say "You are not prepared!"
