Hope that you’ve been keeping well.
Sorry the last week seemed to slip by un-noticed on the blog. Between feeling better, weddings, cinema trips, our 4 year anniversary, Fathers Day and sorting our Save the Dates; this week life just took over!
I went to see Warcraft with MrGUINE and some friends.
Amazing movie. I dabbled in the game a little whereas MrGUINE was a hardcore player for many years, but it looked like a good movie that we both wanted to go see.
Synopsis – Looking to escape from his dying world, the orc shaman Gul’dan utilizes dark magic to open a portal to the human realm of Azeroth. Supported by the fierce fighter Blackhand, Gul’dan organizes the orc clans into a conquering army called the Horde. Uniting to protect Azeroth from these hulking invaders are King Llane, the mighty warrior Anduin Lothar (Travis Fimmel) and the powerful wizard Medivh. As the two races collide, leaders from each side start to question if war is the only answer.
The story is obviously very condensed down as is every movie that is based on something from a massive franchise, such as Harry Potter etc. However between the graphics, acting and plot pace it was a great watch. I adored the view of magic in this film, it was a focal point rather than an add on which I loved. The actors were good and seemed quite natural in their roles, even if you didn’t know their history at points you can grasp whats going to happen before it does. Theres also few emotional scenes that made me shed a tear.
I’d recommend going to see this, whether a hardcore gamer or if totally unknown to you. It was a fun watch, I’ll happily buy it to watch again and am really hoping for a sequel.
