–> awesome <--
Meh. A trillion dollar science expedition headed up by a bunch of gung ho reckless buffoons? I think not. This film is filled with implausible situations that have you thinking, “you have got to be freaking kidding me!” and unexplained occurrences that never get tied together in the end. Special effects can’t cover up bad story writing.
Thus far there have only been two truly great aliens films, Alien and Aliens. Every film in the series after those totally sucked. Unfortunately Prometheus continues this trend.

Greatest Bond film, ever. The way they’ve modernized the series, it’s just great. The high def version just showed on on XBox Live this week, if you didn’t catch it in theaters, go download it now.
An apt ending line to Lucas’s final* Indiana Jones film. It seems George wasn’t entirely content with Jar Jar Binks and Miticlorians, he felt the need to destroy one more American Icon. Space aliens? Good lord. A big thumbs down. George Lucas is a total putz.
* Let hope it’s the final
Beck’s Modern Guilt – available on Amazon’s mp3 store – it’s a rare occurance – tripping over an album where every track totally kicks ass. This is one of the few and far between. Go buy it.

Not much coverage on this in the national news AFAICT – seems everybody is concentrating on other topics. According to CNN, the hot topics of the day are “George Carlin”, West Nile Virus”, “Gas Prices”, “Iran”, and “Election Center”. I wonder if this has something to do with the folks being affected by the flooding.
Update – Those pictures were posted on Boston Globe’s new photo blog – The Big Picture.
