Imagine: whole alien civilisations could have formed, progressed, and reached levels of technological prowess that'd make the iPhone look like a paper clip. All before we even worked out that there was more to life than chasing mammoths and rolling large boulders down hills.

You probably haven't seen it, even if you consider yourself quite a horror fan. It's from a film that remains difficult to track down, and was never very widely shown in the first place. In my opinion it's one of the truly great moments in horror cinema, and I don't want you to go and check it out under any circumstances.

The reality is, whatever we are scared of and whatever the solution might be, we shouldn't force ourselves to do it and carry on regardless. Sometimes we need to look for alternatives or a way to discuss our fears and find somebody that is willing to help you resolve them.

Ripley's Believe it or Not

As the crowd gathered outside in the summer sun, I developed a knot in my stomach. It was an exact mix of sci-fi nerds and people with massive grins on their faces expecting a work of ludicrous ironic genius. I have to admit that I had bought tickets in feverish haste as a combination of both of these attitudes but, filing into the theatre, suddenly felt awful.

How Do You Remember Alien?

I missed Ridley Scott's film at the cinema, and first saw it when it came out on video. Wow. Here is a film which didn't do that brilliantly on cinema release. But it went on to become a favourite for a huge number of people - I hear stories of people having watched it 20, 30 or more times.

After months of intense speculation and exceedingly high expectations, fuelled in no small measure by a very sophisticated viral campaign on the internet, veteran film director Ridley Scott's epic sci-fi movie Prometheus finally arrived in the theatres.

Of all the surprises (good and bad) to be found in Ridley Scott's sci-fi spectacular, I was most struck to discover an unlikely stowaway aboard the fated spaceship: 19th Century Polish composer Frédéric Chopin.

A natural beacon for the young, the studenty and the geeky; who else would be drawn to watch the latest sci-fi epic at midnight on a Thursday? Well, in our case, four thirty-something former-geeks sat right in the centre of a half-filled cavernous theatre.

Those expecting a dark, tense, claustrophobic sci-fi horror like Alien will be disappointed. But for anyone with an open mind about science fiction and the grand, sweeping ideas that can be housed within such a film, Prometheus is a beautiful, harrowing triumph.
