What is is your response to Dan Sanchez’s article about the World of Warcraft movie and how the movie treats the orc race versus how Tolkien does it?
Sanchez mentions Game of Thrones author George RR Martin’s criticism of how Tolken handled the Orc Race:
“The war that Tolkien wrote about was a war for the fate of civilization and the future of humanity, and that’s become the template. I’m not sure that it’s a good template, though. The Tolkien model led generations of fantasy writers to produce these endless series of dark lords and their evil minions who are all very ugly and wear black clothes. But the vast majority of wars throughout history are not like that.”
Sanchez compares it to WWI War Propaganda about Germans.
