    Brain on Fire

    ★½

    A biographical drama based on a the craziest times in the life of Susannah Cahalan, as told in her memoir. Brain On Fire has a heartbreaking true story at its disposal, but unfortunately fails to get it told properly at any given time.

Even though I don't have the slightest clue about the games, I can objectively say that Warcraft is one hot mess of a movie, but does get a bunch of things right.

    No doubt the script is poorly written with a bunch of underdeveloped characters to an extend that it can't be forgiven. Acting…
