It’s hard to make top 10 lists. For a couple reasons, sometimes, its just hard to look back and remember every single little film you saw. Also, while I make a huge effort to see every film that comes out, obviously there are many I miss along the way. So, I looked back at my various reviews from through out the year and put together a list of films I enjoyed quite a bit.
While people’s thoughts on Prometheus were a bit polarizing, it’d be hard to deny that the visual effects in the film were something to shrug your shoulders at. Ridley Scott and his team did an amazing job building a beautiful, unique, and alien world for the film to take place in. This reel from MPC Visual Effects shows some of the break downs of how the they built the world. Very cool stuff. *Warning* This reel may contain spoilers, so watch carefully!
Prometheus is one of those films that you are much better of not knowing anything about going in. Which is why I almost didn’t write this review. The less you know going in the better. The trailers actually did a great job of giving you just enough information to get you in the theater, and without any context, really very little information beyond that. So I urge you, please stop reading this review, if the trailer intrigues you enough, then go see the film. My review won’t contain any spoilers, but regardless, I think Prometheus is a film that should be experienced with no opinions other than your own influencing your experience. [Read more…]
