Everything about this movie just seems better after having a bottle of wine for yourself.

Romantic comedies aren't really my cup of tea. Most of them are not original, and they always follow some sort of plot structure that hasn't really changed over many years: boy meets girl; boy and girl fall in love; boy and girl go through so many difficulties that make it hard for them to be together. Despite everything, in the end, the power of love is unstoppable.

Many of these movies manage to give us false expectations of what "true love" might actually mean. We begin to crave this idealistic stories meant to be enjoyed by the public eye. These movies deceive us with the ideality that love can conquer it all–every obstacle that it is thrown our way.

I've learned to avoid many of those movies. I've never seen Breakfast at Tiffany's or Fifty First Dates or Ten Things I Hate About You or 500 Days of Summer. My eyes have never even grazed a scene from any of these movies. However, there is one movie that I could watch every single day of my life.

Love, Rosie is your typical cliched romantic comedy. Rosie and Alex met at a young age, and they became best friends. They spend most of their childhood together. It was Alex and Rosie all the time, and nobody could change that. However, as one grows, life begins to throw many obstacles at you (am I right???), and our characters are separated from each other. Alex moved to Boston to study to become a doctor, while Rosie stayed in Ireland to raise her baby. Alex, nor Rosie, however, had the balls to tell each other how they truly felt.

There's something about this movie that has always made me love it from the moment I watched the trailer a couple years ago. For their promos, movie posters portrayed condoms, which I thought was a really ingenious movement. (Watch the movie, and you'll understand.)

But the movie isn't set to decide the fate of these starstruck lovers in a span of a couple months. We follow them from years. We meet them during high school, and we end many years later when Rosie finally manages to accomplish her dream. And I believe that's what I love most about the movie. Love, Rosie doesn't entirely focus on the romance plot.

Love, Rosie follows the life of Rosie, a girl who had so many dreams but was stopped the moment she got pregnant at the age of 18. This didn't stop her, though. She managed to still accomplish her dreams. Rosie became unstoppable. She never let anything keep her back. She strived throughout the entire movie, deciding what was better for her. The movie also, somewhat, follows the life of Alex, who's at Boston studying to become a doctor.

The movie shows that love isn't just always the first person that you manage to meet at a bar. This movie shows that, no matter what, the true person in your life is one day going to show up in your life.

That lesson is one I've come to fully grasp these years. Love is deceitful. Love is beautiful. Love can be temporary. There's this old saying that says: there are plenty of fish in the sea. And, probably, maybe, this would be why I would recommend you to watch this beautiful movie. (Plus, the comedy is on point!)

17 years ago, the legion invaded the realm of Azeroth, forcing the different races of Humans, Orcs, Night elves, and Undead to make the most unlikely of alliances. There were those who fought for the light while the others wished to banish it. Night and day, the furnaces of Lordaeron burnt bright as the loyal dwarves of Khaz Modan hammer away the swords and shields that would aid the fight ahead.

17 years ago, the young orc warchief Thrall foresaw the fate of his people as meteors of green flames crash upon his lands. He saw the upcoming demise of his clanand ordered a mass evacuation towards a new continent where they shall be safe for generations to come. 17 years ago, the night elves felt a corruption within the Tree of Life, causing them to split into opposing factions: one fought in the name of the Goddess, while the other fought in the name of personal hatred. 17 years ago, a legion of undead came upon the shores of Lordaeron, plaguing the land and defiling the life force of the realm. That was the story of Warcraft, one that spanned continents and races only to join them together for a crucial battle of their history.

Warcraft was a monument to an entire gaming generation, ranked 2nd best game of all time by German games magazine "GameStar." Its fate, however, was ultimately sealed as computing technology became better and overshadowed the old giant. Plus, with the rise of gaming consoles and handheld gaming devices, PC gaming lost its appeal slowly, and games like Starcraft or Warcraft eventually faded into oblivion.

But over on the horizon, Blizzard Entertainment came to the rescue. Following the success of their previous release of Starcraft: Remastered, they decided to come forth with their next great project: remastering Warcraft 3.

Using a new and revamped engine built over the foundations of the old one, they have rebuilt the world we once loved. Adding to that are new, high definition voices and sound effects that they recorded just for this old game. For the blurry characters of old, the team decided to upscale and remodel all present units to give them the 2019 high-def treatment they deserved. For the old user interface (UI), the development team settled on one that resembled the "Starcraft: Remastered" interface, offering more room for players to look at the gorgeous 4K character models. Also, to fit the new continuity from World of Warcraft, Blizzard opted to alter the story by a small margin, showing promising changes to the revived game.

However, not everyone was hyped when the game was announced. Many gamers expressed disappointment at Blizzard's move of remastering old games instead of developing new ones. Many, feeling uncomfortable at the company's decision, took to the internet and into forums. Some fans expressed concerns over Blizzard's decision to retcon a game they hold dear Some are unhappy with the graphics not being consistent with characters: unit models look too detailed while buildings look cartoonish.

Despite all this, the general population loved the announcement at Blizzcon. As the game slowly reaches its release date of December 31, 2019, the hype can only go up from here. For those of us who can't hold their excitement, here's a video of the crowd's insane reaction to the announcement:
