    The Italian horror movie score, cheesy effects and over-the-top acting make it worth a watch. Probably one of the first B-movie 'mock-busters' following the success of Jaws. And interestingly, it's way better than any of the Jaws sequels. But then again those all sucked.

  • The Cabin in the Woods 2012

    It's nice to see the horror movie cliché turned on itself especially in the present day mess we are in of mass-marketed, non-scary "horror" films. This was a fun ride, like delving in to a horror comic book. It plays like a love letter to the genre while also making all horror movies seem like a complete farce. Brilliant.

    Ridley Scott's Prometheus asks more questions than it answers. Some of those unanswered questions are philosophical, others relate to plot.

The QUESTION itself is where thought-provoking science fiction is at its best. But the interrogative nature of Prometheus begins to frustrate a little when trying to examine its connection to Scott's other film, Alien.
