Prometheus = Awesome blend of old school and new school. It definitely has the Alien feel and suspense but combines it with great looking special effects. The female lead isn’t as bad ass as Ripley, but she’s still pretty awesome and Fassbender (android) steals the show. Great fanservice but still many mysteries to be solved. It feels like it raises more questions than answers. Then again, I guess that's why it's the prequel to the Alien prequel (TBA). 8/10

Prometheus 9/10

Probably more flaws than other 9/10 movies, but it was just very fascinating and exciting even with the flaws.

Prometheus... hard film to rate. I thought it sucked for about the first 20-30 minutes, just ridiculously cliche and didn't like the supporting characters at all. I probably expected too much (huge Alien fan). Anyways, it did get better and some of the action scenes were incredible. Not sure how I felt about the ending, seemed a little forced. Not sure about the religious aspect either. Anyways, I'd say a 7.5 is about right. Better than a 7, not quite an 8.

Also watched The Cable Guy the other night, underrated comedy. 7/10.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind 8.8/10

I'd heard nothing but good things going into this movie, so I was kind of expecting to be let down. That was not the case at all. Really thought provoking, especially with the idea of memory as the driving force in relationships. Jim Carrey played a very out of character role but seemed to do great with it. Rarely do I have next to no complaints with a movie (and with the exception of this one dragging on a little bit more than necessary), this had very few flaws. If you haven't seen this, I highly recommend it

It's also currently on Netflix Instant Streaming.

Ratings are on a scale of 1-10, where 5 is completely average.



-8.1/10

I must admit first that I've never seen a full Alien movie before. I seen dozens of parts and pieces, and about a third of Aliens, but I've never sat down and watched a whole film altogether. Therefore, I'm not at all that knowledgeable about the Alien franchise or its fans. To me, Prometheus was basically just a stand alone movie. So I can't really say or dispute anything that any hardcore Alien fans say what was inconsistent about the film to the others. For me however, Prometheus was good film. The acting and directing were phenomenal in my opinion, and so were the special effects. Theron, Pearce, Elba and Fassbender all know how to drive a film. I personally thought the pacing was fine, but it seems many thought it was a bit all over the place, along with the plot itself. I can definitely see how someone may think that. Although I still have questions myself, which I don't necessarily think is a horrible thing, I definitely can't understand how anyone can think how this was anything less than a very good movie. Not disappointed at all, and I most likely will see it again eventually.




-8.7/10

Best horror movie I've seen in years. I read many reviews calling this movie a game changer, and I whole heartily agree. What a fresh and original idea. I give a big applause to Drew Godddard and Josh Whedon for what they did here. They mocked and destroyed the horror genre, and then built it back up in a way. Anyone that's seen the movie would know that I obviously can't give too much away here, because the plot itself is within a whole other plot, but I can tell you that you will definitely enjoy this movie. The script and pacing were great. The acting was solid, outside Richard Jenkins who's always awesome, but the characters were very deep, and you truly cared about their fate. The buildup itself couldn't have resulted in a better payoff and climax. Bravo.




-5.0/10

I really wish I would have seen this film in theaters. Just the atmosphere and eery nature of the film itself seemed like it would have been perfect to see in a dark movie theater alone. I don't know about anyone else, but I do believe that has an effect on how you a perceive a movie afterwards. Either way, I really don't think there was anything spectacular about this movie. There's definitely nothing new, daring or original here. Haunted house basically. Daniel Radcliffe did a good job, as he seriously looked like he was shitting bricks the whole way, but I just found the plot rather boring. There's so much buildup to so many critical moments where the director wanted to jump you out your seat, and I just don't think it was effective. I jumped a couple times, but I really wish I saw this in theaters. Think it could have been much scarier. I do applaud the ending however. Something I didn't see coming.




-7.3/10

Knew about all the hype that surrounded this film, and of course it won Best Picture, but I still walked in not expecting all that. I thought the film was pleasantly good, but do think its getting a bit overrated. Don't think I've ever seen a silent film before, and the atmosphere was actually prettying amazing. What I loved most about this movie though was that the fact that it was silent and black and white, wasn't used as a gimmick at all during the movie. You completely forget about it about five minutes in. The two main leads did a terrific job, and the plot itself was very unique of course. A very good cast all around, and the climax was pretty intense in itself. But like I said, I roll my eyes a little bit at how praised the film it. Do I think its the Best Picture of the year? No way. I think the black and white silent aspect of it got people to exaggerate it a bit. I thought Moneyball was a better film. Still though, was really surprised at how well this was executed, and I did enjoy it very much.




-6.5/10

Not bad at all. Emily Blunt is fine as hell, but she is legitimately a good actress. I think she gets underrated a lot because of her looks. She had great chemistry with Jason Segel, who's also an underrated actor himself. Most likely because he's on that How I Met your Mother show, which totally sucks by the way. Definitely quite a few laughs to be had here though. Plenty of comedic awkward moments and funny scenes that always seem to have just a couple more jokes before it ends. I liked it.
