OCTOBER 9TH, 2012

PROMETHEUS // As long as you’re not expecting the direct sequel to Alien, Ridley Scott’s latest science fiction thriller reboots the franchise nicely. With outstanding visual effects and grandiose set pieces, the audience is immersed from start to finish. Along with pitch-perfect performances from Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, and Idris Elba, Prometheus delivers on almost every level. Had the film’s plot not left quite so many holes (leading towards a rumored sequel), Prometheus could have been the perfect stand-alone sci-fi film.

THE RAVEN // Basically a way to bring Edgar Allen Poe’s stories to the big screen, there is little excitement in this murder mystery despite its attempt to live in the realm of films like From Hell. John Cusack and Alice Eve are borderline just good enough while Luke Evans steals the show, but without a strong showing from anyone else in the film, The Raven remains a half-rate thriller.

A CAT IN PARIS // Good but not great, A Cat In Paris is a short, yet extremely tight film about a cat and cat-burglar. The animation is done well enough not to distract, but in comparison to where animation is at, even hand-drawn animation, it does not compare. **As seen during the 2012 Oscar Challenge**
