In the ninety-sixth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we deliver the spoiler-free review of Warcraft: The Beginning… and then spoil everything we can about the movie, we discuss our favorite and most disappointing characters, plot points that deviated from the lore, and tell Blizzard how they should have built their Warcraft cinematic universe, we analyze the opening weekend box office take, and speculate on whether or not it will be enough for sequels and spin-offs, and… we determine which faction won in the movie… The Horde? Or… The Alliance. Yes, of course, it was the Horde.

Bitter and Salty is brought to you by Molsan and Sláinte.
