I've never played the Assassin's Creed games, but after reading your plot synopsis I do have to wonder how anyone ever thought this movie might be good.

Yeah, it's shocking, isn't it? Imagine the good that budget could have done if it had gone to, say, The Lobster Circle...
Super late but I was just reading this review because of the new one you put up and I actually agree with you about most of this. I still maintain, and have told people in real life, that Passengers deserved a better reception than it got- hell, I was going to give it a positive score until the end where it devolved completely

. Also, for the record, I didn't think about it at the time but you're absolutely right in that flipping the narrative a bit to surprise both us and Lawrence at the same time would have made this movie much better.

Yeah, I thought that would be an interesting way of telling the story. Kind of a Hateful Eight sort of thing. It wouldn't have fixed the movie, but it would have at least given us a big shock halfway through (rather than the hour of romantic dreck we got instead).

Are you ever going to make a Letterboxd account, Paasche? I'd be interested in reading your reviews.
I have one, but for some reason I didn't ever really get in the flow of using it. I should though, definitely a better place to keep track of rating/thoughts on films than my head. I wouldn't write full reviews for every movie I see since they take me a fair while to compose (usually an hour or two), but I do think it'd be nice to at least get a few thoughts down after I see a film and have some longer ones on there as well.
