Feature Film Review
‘Prometheus’ directed by Ridley Scott. It is written by Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof. It stars Noomi Rapace, Logan Marshall-Green, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron and Idris Elba.
Ridley Scott, director of Alien and Blade Runner, returns to the genre he helped define. With Prometheus, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race. Source: Official Site
Spoiler Section: 00:43:09 – 00:56:20 – Fast forward this bit if you don’t want to hear spoilers.
Our Verdict: A frustrating and disappointing film. Amazing visuals and jaw dropping 3D are let down by a muddy and confusing script.

Lists of Five
This week our Lists of Five: Five Most Disappointing Blockbusters. All we want is to be entertained while we shovel popcorn into our mouths. Is that really too much to ask for?
Just a reminder, because we never like to just make things easy on ourselves, our lists are not necessarily top five lists, they are more or a less a list of film recommendations within the theme of the list.

We close the show with a track from the score to “Prometheus” by Marc Streitenfeld.
