Ang Lee’s Life of Pi

Really looking forward to this film which is due for release in November.  The web site for the film is up.  At the  moment it does not contain much content, but it does give you a taste of its visual aesthetic.  I’m not mad of the soundtrack that accompanies it, perhaps a tad commercial for a film like this, but really I can’t make any judgements at this early stage. You can view the site here.

Ridley Scott’s Prometheus – review

Finally, Prometheus has landed. My anticipation of this film has been, at times, fever pitched. A loose prequel to one of my all time favourite scifi films, Alien. Was I destined to be disappointed? Surely, nothing could come close to the original Alien. I was about to embark on a discovery to see if the poisonous fangs of Hollywood had sucked the life out of this genre. All I could do as the trailers for Batman, Spiderman, and James Bond rolled on was to try and forget Scott’s original film and take this on face value. Unfortunately, I just couldn’t manage it.  Read my full review here.
