I would say check the Warcraft III cinematic settings in your registry to make sure they're compatible with your desktop settings.

Otherwise browse the solutions on blizzard.com/support. You'll also find a registry-setting tool there, in case you have no idea what the first sentence of my post meant.

In the modern world, "common sense" is an oxymoron.

Check updates. I had this problem before and it was resolved by patching. Just connect to Battle.net from the client and it will do all the work for you.
