December is short and sweet since there’s really only one movie I’m looking forward to, but it promises to be a good one.
Assassin’s Creed – December 21
Going to have to sneak this one in either before or after the Christmas visit to my parents because it is so not their type of movie. I’ve played the first few of the many games in the Assassin’s Creed series, which put you in the point-of-view of a modern-day person who’s been taken captive by a shadowy research lab to gain access to the memories of his (or her) genetic ancestor. In this case, that’s series newcomer Callum Lynch, played by the fabulous Michael Fassbender, who delves into the memories of his assassin ancestor Aguilar in 15th Century Spain. I expect a lot of sneakily stabbing people, parkour, and jumping off of tall buildings for no damn good reason.
