Chimera Strain
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This is not a bad movie at all. The acting was so good by the main lead I sided with his cause from start to finish. However, there are some glaring issue here- there are many unnecessary scenes scattered around and some of the techo-psychological talks were pedestrian and did nothing to either progress the film or say something about the characters. It is often unclear as to whether you're seeing a flashback, what is presently happening and what is simply part of Quint's guilt-ridden madness of distress. The film was also on the shorter side and I felt that a movie on this subject should have been longer for us to truly relate to the characters. Still, not a bad watch by any stretch.

Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Kevin Smith returns with a new movie starring the two omnipresent characters from his viewaskview universe- Jay and Silent Bob. If anyone has seen any of Smith's films you'd have seen these two unique characters. Unfortunately, while the content is no less potentially offensive or crude than anything offered in Smith's debut, Clerks, the writing isn't as sharp and the jokes aren't as consistently hilarious. There are times when Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back offers from-the-belly guffaws, but, in comparison with Smith at his ribald best, too much of this movie seems like a pale imitation. The plot is simple- our two intrepid heroes (played, as always, by Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith), leave their beloved state of New Jersey for Hollywood when they learn that a movie is going to be made about their comic book alter-egos, Bluntman and Chronic. Since they're not getting a cut of the rights money paid to Banky Edwards (Jason Lee), they have decided to ruin the production. First, however, they have to make the cross-country journey - a process that is difficult because they have no money. Along the way, they encounter a number of interesting individuals. Not as heartfelt as Clerks or Clerks 2 but still worth a watch.

Prometheus
Prometheus (2012)
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Ridley Scott's Prometheus has been very highly awaited by the science fiction community for not only is it a return to the scifi genre by the esteemed director, but also because Scott started the franchise in the first place. Prometheus is definitely better than most films in its category but then that is a given with the huge budget and Ridley Scott behind the camera. As part of the Alien canon however it might be a bit more complex. Alien fanboys might get offended with where Scott has taken the story and the entire bit with the space engineers will elicit opinion on the extremes. Visually the film is stunning and some scenes are truly awe inspiring. Irrespective of what you think of the film you will surely have an opinion to give.
