Prometheus - Movie Review

Prometheus (R) 124 minutes C
Hallo Space boy

Starring Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green, Charlize Theron, Sean Harris and Rafe Spall     

Prometheus is a so-so fantastic voyage. Initially, it was meant to be a prequel to Alien, circa 1979, but director Ridley Scott decided that this latest reincarnation was strong enough to stand on its own. It’s not as good as the aforementioned Alien film, but it does have some interesting (if not fantastical) meditations on theology.

The first half of the film felt pedestrian, yet sufficient enough to keep me curious. The second half was more engaging, due in large part to Michael Fassbender. He was absolutely magnificent as the unemotional android.

Prometheus might be worthwhile for sci-fi fans, but everyone else should proceed with caution.
Bonus DVD Review

Red State (R) 88 minutes C
On with the body count

Release Date: October 2011
Starring Michael Parks, Michael Angarano, Kerry Bishe, Nicholas Braun, Kyle Gallner, John Goodman, Melissa Leo, Kevin Pollak, Stephen Root and Cooper Thornton

Red State is an intriguing film and departure from the norm for writer/director Kevin Smith.  But the film has an uneven feel.  Some of the scenes tend to drag on much longer than necessary.  The story follows three horny teenage boys who are kidnapped and torched by a religious cult.  File under Tarantino-lite.
