Plot – During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive.
First Impressions – Ridley Scott hasn’t had a good time of late with his movies as Exodus, The Counselor and Prometheus failing to capture the brilliance of his early career, The Martian however looks like Scott is back on form.
By the looks of things it’s mixing the tension of Gravity and interstellar and if it can pull it off it might be one of the films to look forward too
Directed by: Ridley Scott.
Starring: Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Logan Marshall-Green, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce.
The movie starts on ancient Earth, where a remotely human looking being, standing at the edge of a waterfall, watches as a ship lifts off and ascends away into space. After drinking an odd liquid from a cup, the being convulses and begins to disintegrate, falling into the waterfall and disolving entirely. We zoom in close enough to see the being’s D.N.A. being broken down simply as it’s sacrifice forms the first blocks of human life. Read the rest of this entry

I’m not a fan of horror, flat out horror (same as torture porn as witnissed most recently in the Saw movies) just doesn’t do it for me, but i love science fiction, so i will indulge horror crossed with that genre or other cross genres. This feature will take a look at the movies of the Alien series, Predators, and the crossover series Alien Vs Predators, as well as a look ahead at the possible future of the Alien franchise, with Ridley Scott’s Prometheus.
