    Sony Turning Videogame 'Assassin's Creed' Into Movie Franchise

    Video game to film adaptations haven't always gone over well, and arguably, there has only been one flat-out successful franchise created so far in the "Resident Evil" series of the movies.

It's highly likely that this writer isn't alone. Still, one person generally can't see everything a festival has to offer, so flicks that don't have Palme d'Or helmers behind them or a truckload of auspicious praise for their "breakout performer" tend to get shafted. Still, it's a must to atte...
