Review: Prometheus

Posted by Ali at 07:00 on 31 May 2012
Prometheus
For all the talk of Prometheus "sharing the same DNA" as Alien, Ridley Scott's prequel doesn't bear much family resemblance to its granddaddy. The economy of horror that served his 1979 effort so well is replaced by a big-budget, star-gazing sci-fi that wants you to know it has size on its side. Hugely ambitious and staggering in its grand designs, Prometheus is almost hamstrung by the fact it is an Alien movie at all – the mishmash of grotesque body-horror and chin-stroking existentialism does not always make for the most coherent movie, but it is at least an entertaining one and certainly no black mark on the franchise.

Amazing first official still from Ridley Scott's eagerly anticipated Alien prequel, starring the hottest cast in Hollywood and written by one of the most in-demand scribes in the business. Your hopes: lift them higher!

Alien prequel not so much

Alien prequel not so much
That kickass Ridley Scott Alien prequel you've been looking forward to? Sucks to be you. The film is now called Prometheus and has dick-all to do with xenomorphs, facehuggers and your momma.

Review: The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest

The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest
Previously, in the Millennium trilogy... Lisbeth Salander aka The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is a bit of a social spaz, but she's an uber-hacker capable of dishing out epic haxx0r pwnage, like a one-girl 4chan. Mikael Blomkvist is a suave investigative journalist who busts cases wide open and has lots of sex because he's not at all representative of the book's author. Lots of people bought their adventures because writer Stieg Larsson died before they were released, which makes them better.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo will soon be the girl who played second fiddle to Robert Downey Jr (and the girl who made Jude Law seem even more effeminate) in Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes sequel.

Review: The Girl Who Played With Fire

The Girl Who Played With Fire
The Girl is everywhere at the moment. Between posters advertising the DVD release of her excellent Dragon Tattoo and what seems to be 80 % of all public-transport commuters reading about her Hornet's Nest (stop sniggering) - not to mention Fincher's forthcoming US adaptation(s?) - Stieg Larsson's so-called Millennium Trilogy is certainly enjoying unprecedented popularity at the moment. And yet with this, the second film of the series, we have already reached the first stumbling block.
