Moonrise Kingdom (2012) Review

By Jason Haskins

Hipsters unite—the new Wes Anderson movie, Moonrise Kingdom, has just
been released. Being one of those few left who dig Anderson’s films
for their personal relevance aside from just their aesthetic
prettiness, I was eagerly anticipating the film.

Prometheus (2012) Review

By Paco McCullough 

Prometheus, the highly anticipated semi-prequel to Ridley Scott's
classic Alien, is nothing if not ambitious. The film dares to ask
philosophical questions, attempting to be more along the lines of Tarkovsky's films or Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey. Even the name is more ambitious, evoking
classic Greek mythology instead of flesh-tearing xenomorphs. Perhaps
Icarus would have been a better name, though. Much like that tale,
Prometheus attempts too much, and crashes to the ground as a result.
