Movie Review Flashback: Why, ‘Warcraft’, Why?

Remember nearly two and a half years ago when Warcraft, the film based on the highly-enjoyable, very popular MMO called World of Warcraft, charged into theaters? And remember when it turned out to be a flop, overall making a profit at least worldwide but proving the point that games can’t be turned into live-action films? Well, I missed Warcraft in the movie theaters two years ago but I did manage to see it when it was released digitally. I didn’t like it. I didn’t like it at all. I was mortified that a game so epic could be turned into a movie so horrid and I vowed to never watch it again. Jump forward to this month and I somehow managed to get the nerve to watch it again.

Have you ever watched a movie, thought it was awful, and then watched it again and actually enjoyed it? Well, this was what I was hoping would happen on my second viewing of the film. It did not happen. I was able to enjoy it a little more than I did last time, for I was kind of able to grasp what the world was going on in its very confusing storyline, but overall I came away from the movie disappointed yet again.

‘Warcraft’ vs. ‘Assassin’s Creed’: Which Movie Is Better?

Well, unexpectedly this Thursday morning, I ended up watching Warcraft and Assassin’s Creed back to back. Yes, two movies adapted from two of the best gaming franchises of all time, in succession. And by the way, both films aren’t that great but I ended up watching them anyway.

I’m a bit ashamed to admit that I’ve seen the horrendous Warcraft four times. I’ve loved and played the game for years and couldn’t wait to see the movie adaptation. When I finally saw it in 2016 I was less than impressed. In fact, I was flabbergasted by how bad the film turned out to be.

The casting of the film was HORRIBLE! The story was bland and boring. The CGI was subpar. It’s a lackluster depiction of a game that is so cool and so much fun. I mean, have you seen the World of Warcraft trailers? Check this one out.

This just might be the most epic trailer ever made. I can’t begin to tell you how many times I have watched this trailer and been covered in goosebumps every time. Continue reading ‘Warcraft’ vs. ‘Assassin’s Creed’: Which Movie Is Better?
