Assassin’s Creed: Visually Rich but Badly in Need of a Re-write [Review]

I could see one movie to review this week and the choice came down between Assassin’s Creed and Sing.  One of these had already been given substantially lower viewer ratings than the other but it has also been given Michael Fassbender, one of the most handsome men ever.  The choice was obvious.  And for those of you facing a similar choice, I am here to tell you – Michael Fassbender spends an unnecessarily large amount of screen time without a shirt and because of that I enjoyed this show a lot more than I otherwise would have.

Passengers: Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Pratt Can’t Save this Boring Space Odyssey [Review]

If you’re going to drop a sci-fi movie in late December and it’s directed by the guy who made The Imitation Game and stars Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games) and Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy), you would expect a lot, right? I mean, I certainly would. On paper, Passengers has all the makings of a star-powered vehicle that would cash in around the holidays and even generate some awards buzz. Unfortunately, for Passengers, they didn’t show this movie on paper, because none of the playbook meshes together on screen, and the result is tedious and melodramatic.
