WoW Moviewatch: Cruel, Cruel Moon


You may have missed it, but there's been some talk lately about whether or not Worgen could be a playable race in the next expansion. In light of that discussion and the overwhelming amount of love shown yesterday for Spiff's The Future Soon, today's featured movie is Cruel, Cruel Moon. The recommendation was made via our own Elizabeth Harper, who apparently has a friend who's quite the fan of Spiff.

The song Cruel, Cruel Moon was written by Paul & Storm, who spend a lot of their touring time with Jonathan Coulton. The song is about a man who's begging the moon not to rise, because his beloved partner is likely to turn into a werewolf. Spiff's video captures the lighthearted feel of the song excellently, and the whole thing moves at a wonderful pace. I have a lot of appreciation for this kind of music, since it tends to last long enough to enjoy the joke, without overstaying its welcome and dragging on too long.

During the credits, there's a bonus feature song. Frogger! The Frogger Musical endcaps the whole video perfectly.

WoW Moviewatch: The Future Soon



As you probably have heard, BlizzCon is only a month or so away. With the machinima contest becoming a bigger and bigger event at the Anaheim gathering every year, WoW Moviewatch is going to periodically feature the victors of BlizzCons-past. We want everyone ready to be the very best peanut gallery we can possibly be. One of the best ways to do this prep-work, of course, it to take a look at some of the videos that have impressed BlizzCon judges already.

The Future Soon by Spiffworld was first posted on WoW.com in August 2007. It's one of the (many) Jonathan Coulton videos we've seen over the years. Spiffworld definitely does a great job of bringing the music to "life." That's a skill he's continued to display as recently as a few months ago, with the Coulton song Shop Vac. The Future Soon picked up a runner-up award in the Action/Adventure Category in 2008.
