Review: Warcraft

 

Warcraft movie

Ever since the 90’s, a lot of movie studios tried their hands at adapting a videogame for the big screen. The now famous attempt of bringing Mario into the film medium have somewhat created the reputation that now surrounds all videogame movie adaptations: There seems to be a curse, that holds these movies back and there’s yet a good one to be produced.

It was dark, had a very distinct look and something about it just didn’t feel right.

The Assassin’s Creed Movie: Disaster or breakthrough?

It’s going to take some time until the Assassin’s Creed movie hits the theaters. But now that we have our first trailer, we can take a first guess as to its qualities. The movie has a lot to live up to: There seems to be a curse on movies based on videogames and some think, that Assassin’s Creed is going to be the one movie, that is going to end the streak of bad movie adaptations.

Terminator 2 is one of my favorite movies of all time. I know many of you feel the same way about the classic action movie, that is still a great watch today. But ever since the third movie came out, my enthusiasm for the franchised vaned. I hadn’t even enough interest left to watch the fourth one, but now, my interest in the franchise has returned.
