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.

I've constantly bitched about how unfair this system of movie marketing is, or how unfair the media is as credit really isn't going where credit is due. But until I went to the Aruba International Film Festival, I realised that there's a position that rarely gets any credit at all - they never get to walk the red carpet and yet they are the ones that truly make films magical.

Spider-Man's costume is indisputably the greatest superhero costume of all time. Steve Ditko's design is flawless in every aspect. This one dispenses with the best thing about Ditko's costume design - the curved webbing. The curved webbing, in this new incarnation... is straight! He looks like he's wearing a trellis!

With Prometheus and Avengers Assemble already out and raking in the cash, and The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man coming soon, Summer 2012 is looking set to be one of the biggest in recent Hollywood history. It's also gearing up to be one of the least original.

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.

Prometheus Proves Classical Music Still Matters

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.

Prometheus, The Great Gatsby and Why it's Time to Love 3D

Paul Bullock | Posted 31.07.2012 | UK Entertainment
Paul Bullock

No film-making tool has attracted the same level of disdain as 3D has over the last few years. Now into its third wave (fourth if you add the brief dalliance in the 20s to the more famous periods of the 50s and 80s), 3D is inspiring film fans and critics to unite in their condemnation.

The dumbing down started early for Frankenstein. Barely five years after Mary Shelley first sent her "hideous progeny" out into the world, Richard Brinsley Peake's stage play, Presumption; or, The Fate of Frankenstein began the process of turning a complex psychological novel about the divided self into a crowd-pleaser with hunchbacks.
