Did Muslims forget about the Crusades?

The crusades are so ubiquitous these days that it is hard to imagine anyone ever forgetting them. People play video games like Assassin’s Creed (starring the Templars) and Crusader Kings II in droves, newsfeeds are filled with images of young men marching around in places like Charlottesville holding shields bearing the old crusader slogan “Deus vult” (God wills it!), and every year books about the crusades are published in their dozens, informing readers about the latest developments in crusade...

Assassin’s Creed Movie Review

Films based on video games aren’t just difficult to pull off, they’re working against the bias that suggests that they’re pretty stupid even in theory. , for example, wasn’t great, but wasn’t nearly as bad as the general reception it received. Assassin’s Creed doesn’t have quite the same hill to climb, but it’s still saddled with a goofy premise by general audience standards. Without bothering to give away the film’s intro (because it’s fun), Cal Lynch (Michael Fassbender) finds himself, more o...

Assassin's Creed review – Michael Fassbender game movie achieves transcendental boredom

This film adaptation of the successful videogame, in which Fassbender must battle Templars after the original apple from Eden, is an interminable, lifeless mess“What the fuck is going on?” mutters Michael Fassbender’s character through clenched teeth, reasonably early on in the course of this interminable film, based on the lucrative video game series Assassin’s Creed. You can imagine each of its stars – Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Essie Davis – saying much the same thing while l...

Forget Don’t Breathe…Here’s The Blind Dead!

A look at the classic Spanish sound-centric Blind Dead film series With director Fede Alvarez’s white knuckle horror thriller Don’t Breathe still strangling the tail-end of the summer box office, we thought it appropriate to flash back to series of modestly budgeted Spanish horror films that similarly traded in the film’s central conceit. In Don’t Breathe, a gaggle of young, thrill-seeking Detroit thugs break into a blind war vet’s home to rob him, well, blind. But what they don’t know is tha...

Natural

The Jardin des Plants, or the city garden, in la Rochelle has the Natural History Museum on one side. I loved seeing animals up close like you can at these types of museums although I imagine the animal rights people would shut them down if they could. These animals were probably preserved years ago if that helps. There was a family in the museum and the children were just charmed by seeing lions and tigers and all sorts of other creatures. It really needed air conditioning though. Maurice and I...
