Earth has been destroyed and is left lifeless except for the few alien scavs that the humans have defeated. Tom Cruise plays Jack Harper, a drone repairman that is stationed on earth to repair drones that secures the harvesters from the scavs.  He and his female partner, Victoria, have few weeks left on their mission until they get sent back to Titan, a moon that orbits Saturn where the rest of earth’s survivors have seek refuge.  Harper soon finds out that the scavs are not who they really are and his mission is more than a drone repairman.

The plot in this movie unfolds at a snail’s pace, but it ramps up at the end. This sci fi movie has a great premise but the it fails to get you to the edge of your seat for very long.

Rating: ★★★★★★★½☆☆


Prometheus is a prequel to Ridley Scott’s Alien movie from 1979.  In this film, with ancient archaeological maps  the Weyland corporation enlists the USCSS Prometheus to the planet LV-223 to discover their human origins.  Once on the mysterious planet they soon find more than they bargained for. Instead they discover something that will threaten the existence of their kind.

In an effort not to reveal any spoilers I’m just going to say that Prometheus is a solid sci-fi movie that explains some of the questions from the original Alien movie, but it leaves more questions than it answers.

Rating: ★★★★★★★★☆☆


Skyline is a movie about an alien invasion. Think of it as a cross between Independence Day, War of the Worlds, and Cloverfield. With such good movies to be compared from it doesn’t deliver like it should.

The movie has amazing special effects and there’s no doubt about that. It’s the story line that is lacking. The lack of character development, clear direction, and campy acting makes this an average B-movie.

Rating: ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆
