Critics Consensus: Prometheus is Certified Fresh

This week at the movies, we've got an alien resurrection (Prometheus, starring Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender) and an incredible journey ( Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted, with voice work from Ben Stiller and Jada Pinkett Smith). What do the critics have to say? More than three decades after Alien helped to usher in a new era in sci-fi cinema, Ridley Scott heads back to the cosmos for the ambitious Prometheus. And critics saythat while this kinda-sorta prequel to Alien lacks the focus and brutal efficiency of Scott's 1979 classic, it's well acted, visually stunning, and filled with big ideas.More…

Total Recall: Ridley Scott's Best Movies

Over the course of his 35-year filmmaking career, Ridley Scott has dabbled in pretty much every genre: from historical epics to action flicks, fantasy to heartwarming drama, he's done it all -- and he's racked up an impressive pile of awards and nominations along the way. But since 1982's Blade Runner, sci-fi has been conspicuously absent from Scott's filmography -- until now, that is. With the decidedly Alien-ish Prometheus landing in theaters this weekend, we decided now would be the perfect time to take a fond look back at 10 of the brightest critical highlights from the Ridley Scott oeuvre, and you know what that means: It's time for Total Recall!More…

Tomatometer Watch: Prometheus

Don't call it a prequel. Or do. Wait, now it isn't. At this stage everyone's probably a little weary of the speculation over whether or not Ridley Scott's Prometheus is a direct forerunner to his 1979 classic Alien -- most of us simply can't wait to get a look at the thing. Well, the wait is (almost) over and the first reviews have started to arrive from the trades and outlets in the UK (once again those lucky geezers have the jump on American audiences). What do the critics have to say?More…
