One of the things I liked about it was additions of things I remember more from playing a bit of Hearthstone. That's probably because while I've played the first two Warcraft games many, many years ago, I have yet to play the third. I have also never played World of Warcraft,... Read All I'm not really sure how many other gamers view games being brought into movies. I think there may reasonably be some anxiety with that, however I think we already have some examples of this being done right and wrong. Personally, I think Warcraft is perhaps one of the few games where the movie does it right. I enjoyed it and from little I've heard and read about it, it seems to be pretty popular.

That's probably because while I've played the first two Warcraft games many, many years ago, I have yet to play the third. I have also never played World of Warcraft, so it seems obvious I would notice things that remind me more of Hearthstone. This would be like Gul'dan, Medivh, Lothar, and the sound of a Murloc you hear briefly as some humans go through a swampy area. There are also griffins!
I've been waiting a little while for the movie to be available for rent on Amazon Prime Video and I was very happy about that. The few dollars I paid for the rental were worth it. I thought it was a good movie, so I thought I'd come here to recommend it. I think it could possibly be a good movie to you even if you've never played a Warcraft game, but if you have then I think you'll like it even more and also notice elements from the games.
I've now noticed that Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV is available to rent on Amazon Prime Video, so I'm going to go watch that and hope that it turns out pretty cool, too. I did enjoy Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within and Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. So, perhaps later I will return with another post about a movie based on a video game.
