SF: I had high expectations for Prometheus. Fortunately it does complement the previous Alien movies whilst carving its own ground. It is however lacking that spark and becomes a bit predictable. I still enjoyed most of it. Noomi Rapace was a fair lead but a special mention is deserved by Michael Fassbender for making David more than just sinister, for me he was the most interesting character carried the film. My main critique is there wasn't any tension which is a real let down. Ridley Scott not totally back on form but almost. 7/10

50 Eggs: This quasi prequel/reboot (Requel? Preboot?) put me in mind of Terminator Salvation, in that it never quite ties in with the feel and plot of it's predecessors. This is not on a par with Alien or Aliens. What it does boast is some excellent performances and breathtaking visuals. And that's why it's getting a generous 8/10

DonkeyB: Its boring. I mean really boring. Predictable, sub 2001 nonsense. Pretentious. It's possible that George Lucas was a script consultant. 4/10

Overall: 6.33/10
