In this week’s episode, we’re discussing Assassin’s Creed, games and movie. That also leads us to a discussion on why we think movie adaptations of video games are frequently not critically and/or financially successful. Revanche is featured in this week’s “Better Know an X-Man.”
Please let this be good. Please let this be good. Please let this be good. I’m a big fan of the Assassin’s Creed games, and I really, really, REALLY want to believe that maybe, just maybe this will be the video game movie that is good. I like that they are going with an original story, set during the Spanish Inquisition (wonder if that was expected). And the Animus looks…interesting. I like the idea that it is something that appears to put your body actually through what is going on in your mind, rather than just being a tube, or a head piece.
