If you were to have an android, which personality, would you give it? An ISTJ? Sure, if you could be certain it wasn’t a terminator. An ENFJ? Ugh, no- you might accidentally fall in love with it and be branded robo-sexual. Maybe an ESFP if you plan on a malfunction .

Whatever you would choose, you can be certain that an INTP android would do everything in their power to understand their situation and environment. You would get the most advanced robot ever created…and you’d also get one with their own agenda. Continue reading

Recently, I returned to Prometheus for no other reason than because I wanted to, dang it! I have gone back and forth with this film since it came out in June of 2012.

Do I like really like it? Am I rationalizing for a terrible film because of how much I love Alien? Maybe it is good. Who knows, clearly not me; but I can say for sure that I love the cinematography in this film. You can doubt many things in this film, but Dariusz Wolski did a heck of a job.

But that’s not why I’m writing this. Continue reading

Thanks for Ruining Cthulu, Xenomorphs.

I recently went over The Mountains of Madness for the first time. Having been a long time observer of H.P. Lovecraft, it hasn’t been until recently that I’ve actually been reading his work. Before that, I was highly involved in as many documentaries and biographical works about Lovecraft as would come out. Is it weird to read more about an author whose work you’ve never read? Probably. But keep reading.

Cthulu moonwalking in front of his sacrifice. He so crazy.

2012: The Best of the Year, Thus Far

Posted in Top 5 Lists with tags , , , , , on 07/02/2012 by McCutcheon

It’s tough to believe (like every year) that 2012 is halfway over. Six months to go and the rest of the world is gone too. Oh, happy day! To make the best of this time, I’ve compiled a short list of the five best movies from this year, as well as the five worst. This includes links to the actual reviews, and I’ve added a few on here that I never got a chance to write reviews on, for one reason or another. Click on the title for the individual review. Worst movies up soon. So many to choose from on that list…

Movie Review: Prometheus

Posted in Reviews! with tags , , , , , , , on 06/07/2012 by McCutcheon

Stars: Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Logan Marshall-Green, Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce

Rated R for sci-fi violence including some intense images, and brief language Running time 124 minutes, Action/Sci-fi/Horror

Compare to: Sunshine (2007), The Thing (2010)

To define what I just watched might take more than a single review. I don’t want to describe the movie with the impression that I’ve never seen anything like it before, but rather to process everything I’ve just watched and decide how much I loved and how much better other aspects could have been. One viewing might not be enough. That being said, Prometheus is one heck of a thing to watch, regardless of whether or not you’re a fan of the Alien series. We can all even further implore the recovery process to forget the last two Alien VS. Predator films. It seems the creators of Prometheus have already, thanfully for us. Continue reading

We Need ALL the Angles on This Statue’s Face

Posted in Whatever with tags , , , on 06/02/2012 by McCutcheon

With less than a week away from release, 20th Century Fox has released another poster for Prometheus, this one specifically for IMAX. Which is cool, I guess, because the big face would look cooler on an even bigger screen. My hope for this is that it’s not a prequel that’s basically a remake like the 2011 version of The Thing was. It wasn’t terrible, just more of the exact same. But with a cast like it has, how can you go wrong? Hollywood could find a way… Not to mention, we haven’t had a decent Aliens movie since 1986. David Fincher directing Aliens 3 made me want to like it, but c’mon- it was boring.

Let’s hope Ridley does his own movie justice.
