A few days ago my boyfriend, Kevin Walker, and I went and saw Ridley Scott’s new film: Prometheus. The plot of the movie is a prequel to Alien, also by Ridley Scott. I was looking forward to the movie, mainly because of Scotts other film Blade Runner, and how its filmed and executed. The grungy scenes and shots really set the mood, and Prometheus was the same.
I don’t want to give too much away, but the basic plot is a spaceship of 17 humans, and one robot humanoid, are flying through space in hopes of making contact with an alien race that they believe created humans on earth thousands of years ago. The movie then goes on to how their interactions of the crew members, planet life, etc. affects the outcome of the human race.
The end of the film leads into Alien, which was great to see. (So if you go to the movie, stay till the very end for that glimpse!)
The shots from the movie show off the amazing makeup, prosthetics and special effects!

Last night my boyfriend and I attended a pre-screening of the film Man on a Ledge. As college students and because of our social media presence through twitter and Facebook, we get invitations to pre-screening events often. It’s definitely a way to get a look at a potentially great films and for no cost. The film, directed by Asger Leth, is released on January 27th 2012, starring Sam Worthington and Elizabeth Banks. IMDb gives this as a summary:
“As a police psychologist works to talk down an ex-con who is threatening to jump from a Manhattan hotel rooftop, the biggest diamond heist ever committed is in motion…”
I would say the above is pretty accurate, but it leaves out the mess of connections that link the diamond heist to the ex-con. There are twist and turns that I honestly did not see coming a mile away. This is also one of the only films I have seen in a long time that had truly nail biting moments of suspense. Being on a ledge on the 21st floor of a building in NYC would terrify anyone, so there are definitely some stomach lurches along the way. This movie is definitely a must see!
