News: Mad Max: Fury Road Finally About To Shoot?

Posted in Movies, News with tags , , , , , , , , on July 3, 2012 by Bjorn Grainger

As I stated way back in October when the first rumblings of production seemed to be grinding into action, George Miller’s Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior is leanest, meanest, and finest action movies ever made thanks to its brutal simplicity. Beyond Thunderdome we’ll try to forget. Anyway, it looks like Mad Max: Fury Road, the soon to be fourth film in the franchise, is FINALLY about to start shooting. Continue reading

My review for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus is up now waiting to be read. Firstly, check out this IMAX poster that has a very cool retro/70s look to it. Or, if that’s not enough, why not watch these clips, see if they’re enough to convince you to leave the filthy squalor of your house for the shiny brilliance of the movie screen. Continue reading

Review: Prometheus

I know nearly every review for the film will make mention of this so I’m going to get it out of the way at the start – Prometheus sees Ridley Scott’s long-awaited return to sci-fi, a genre where he made such stone-cold classics as Alien and Blade Runner. Can Prometheus possibly live up to such a lofty billing, or will it be fanboy crushing damp squib like a certain Phantom Menace? Read on and find out.

The release of Prometheus (here in the UK, at least) is only two days away. The first reviews are out and doing the rounds. Here are the thoughts of  The Hollywood Reporter, Empire, and Total Film if you want to know if the film lives up to the hype. Beware of spoilers, of course. In the meantime, why don’t you watch a load of featurettes about Ridley Scott’s return to sci-fi. Go on. It’ll be fun*.

News: New Prometheus Featurette Focusses On Charlize Theron’s Meredith Vickers

Posted in Movies, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 25, 2012 by Bjorn Grainger

I’d love to offer up a brilliant insightful clip that defines the potential brilliance of Ridley Scott’s latest film, Prometheus, but all I have is a slight puff-piece on Charlize Theron’s character Meredith Vickers. Will that do? It’ll have to. Continue reading

News: Massively Spoilerific New Prometheus Poster

Posted in Movies, Poster with tags , , , , , , , , on May 18, 2012 by Bjorn Grainger

This not the new Prometheus poster, by the way. This is the teaser poster from before Christmas when the marketing for the film was still going for the subtle and mysterious, not the “let’s show them EVERYTHING so there’s no drama or surprises left when they go to the cinema to see it” we’re getting now. Maybe, just maybe, we’re not being shown everything and Ridley Scott’s return to sci-fi will shock and surprise like his original Alien did. We live in hope.
