Guilty Pleasures: Star Trek The Motion Picture

Ridley Scott’s Prometheus deals with how the quest for God, or The Creator, can end up biting mankind in the ass.

Even when one takes into account first draft scripter […]

The word prequel to me at the moment is as welcome as a fart in a spacesuit. Fitting then that the next prequel to trundle along for our viewing displeasure is a prequel to the best spacesuit movie out there: Alien. *Mild spoilers below* I have tried my very best to avoid all the promotion […]
