In the run up to its release, there has been much speculation about the exact connections between Prometheus and the Alien movies. The genesis of the project was in 2002, with Alien (1979) director Ridley …

As a fan of director Neill Blomkamp's first movie, District 9 (2009), and his short films, I was eagerly awaiting the release of Elysium. Though it's not a total disappointment, Blomkamp's …

Iron Man 3 (2013 film)
Proof that the law of diminishing returns doesn't always apply, the third film in the Iron Man series is the best of the bunch. Indeed, I would go as far as to say that this is one of the best Marvel …
posted a Quick Tip about Black Hole (graphic novel). March 22, 2012
Black Hole by Charles Burns
An unsettling, allegorical tale of adolescence and mutation in the 1970s. Part coming of age drama, part Cronenbergian body horror. Burns' superb writing and bold black and white artwork make this a highly …

Enjoyed your Quick Tip on the newest Sherlock Holmes film. I felt the same way. I hope the sequel is more promising.

Thanks, Adrianna! All the ingredients were there to make something special, apart from a gripping story worthy of the character. Let's hope they manage to rectify that next time.

Simon-- welcome to Lunch! I was checking out your site and was really digging your sketches-- very talented! Hopefully you can share some art related reviews here with the Lunch crowd. I know I love getting a little ART 101 while browsing reviews. I recently read and liked this review of artist Mark Rothko. Perhaps you will too. Feel free to drop me a message or comment if you have any questions while Lunching-- I'd be happy to help!
