The Origins of Humankind....Evolution or Devolution?
1979’s horror-sci-fi hit “Alien” made such an impact and up to this day, the film stands as one of the best horror movies ever made. Its sequel “Aliens” made its focus more on the action and suspense that stemmed from being overrun by the murderous creatures. The second and third sequels while not terrible movies, failed in expanding on the “Alien” mythos and there were times that I thought they were only made to capitalize on the franchise’s popularity. …

So many have wondered this question and Ridley Scott has decided to try and take the characters in his latest movie on that quest to find where we come from and for good measure brings along his old friend the Alien for good measure.      Scott was the director of the original 1977 Alien film and few films are as awesome looking or as intense as that one.  While other directors took over for other films with different levels of success (or more accurately a sliding scale …

Its a good movie, but I expected more.
      Like a lot of things, I heard about Prometheus in passing. Back in April I was talking to a friend about movies we wanted to see this year.  I said the usual, The Amazing Spiderman, The Dark Knight Rises, and The Avengers. He said that he wanted to see Prometheus. Not knowing what that was he showed me a trailer. As soon as I saw that curvy Alien ship in the previews, I was HYPED!!!!       In 2089 Drs Charlie Galloway and Elizabeth Shaw have …

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 Scott and Aliens (1986) director James Cameron both involved in the development of what was intended to be a fifth installment of the Alien franchise for 20th Century Fox, but after Cameron bowed out due to studio disagreements and commitments to Avatar, the project stalled. Fox revived the project …

'Prometheus' 'Two Jews On Film' Are On 2 Different Planets When It Comes To The Prequel To 'Alien'
By Joan Alperin Schwartz      What if you had the chance to meet the people who created you...And by you...I mean the human race. Could you resist such an opportunity?      Two brilliant scientists, the intense, religious Dr. Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and the very unspiritual Dr. Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green) certainly can't.      Not after they discover a series of cave paintings, that turn out to be a star map, left by several ancient …

True to form, Prometheus overreaches
PROMETHEUS Written by Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof Directed by Ridley Scott Starring Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron   David: Sometimes to create, one must first destroy.   The ship which Ridley Scott’s latest foray into outer space is named for, PROMETHEUS, is itself named after a Greek god. In case you’re unfamiliar, this particular God is not only credited with the creation of man, from clay no less, but also with providing mankind with fire …

Star Rating:         Fundamentally, Ridley Scott’s Prometheus is about the search for truth and meaning. Under the guise of a 3D science fiction thriller, it begs most of humanity’s most basic spiritual and/or philosophical questions. Why are we here? Were we created, and if so, by who or what? Is there a purpose to our very being? The film does not presume to answer all of the above, although it does leave us with the strong possibility that such truths …

Exiting a screening of Ridley Scott's ludicrous, inexplicably acclaimed sword-and-sandal epic twelve years ago, I vowed never again to pay for the trial of enduring one of his movies. Both then and now, most entries of Scott's filmography following his first three miraculous features are at best underwhelming. Though he's never demeaned himself by defecating Baysian action tripe as his sibling Tony does so often, Scott has turned out an appalling abundance of fatuous genre pictures: …

   "The Forethinker"      "The Forethinker" says that if you'll visit this film waiting for Ripley to come out with a flamethrower then your whole experience will get flamed. Prometheus is that one of a kind journey people will love to hate because it won't resemble their Alien fantasies. This wasn't supposed to be Alien in the first place so expecting an acid shell shrouding this godlike body will give you as many rewards as a nutshell …

         It is tough to tell what, if anything anyone has heard about Prometheus going into it.  The biggest talking point of the movie though is that Prometheus is a prequel to Alien.  But I suggest you get that idea out from your head.  Any fan of the original will remember how beautiful and spine chilling that movie was.  Alien deserves to go down as one of the best science fiction movies of all time. …
