The supposed prequel to Alien, Prometheus, is the film I watched at the cinema on Monday. I’m going to start off by saying this wasn’t as good as I’d hoped. The alien world, the space ship and the aliens themselves were very well done. I saw the film in 3D and this was done very well, especially the various computer overlays and maps. I was also impressed by Michael Fassbender‘s, android character, David. Where I thought the film let itself down was the lack of interest in the characters. The first two films (Alien and Aliens) worked so well, because you spent so long with the various crews before the alien/aliens started attacking. In Prometheus I wasn’t invested enough in the main characters, even though the acting was good. I wasn’t expecting it to be as good as Alien or Aliens, but I still left the cinema disappointed, even though the film was enjoyable.

Wow it’s been a long time since I posted on here. I’ll have to fix that.
Saw The Avengers last night at the cinema. It was a brilliant mix of action and humour, there were various times when the whole screen was laughing. All the lead actors were great as well, I was particularly impressed with Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/The Hulk, the Hulk got some of the best scenes/lines. I saw it in 3D, but I don’t think it added much. This is one of the best superhero films I’ve seen and so I’d definitely recommend you see it.
