Looking Ahead….

Welcome to our weekly Monday morning (well Tuesday this week…) look ahead and what I hope to watch this week.

So this week I will be mostly watching…….

Like Crazy – I am determined to tick this off the list this week 


Friends With Kids – I’ll only catch this if I can get to a cheap screenings, I suspect its not worth full price

Goon – Heard some good things about this.  Let’s see how Stifler faces off.

Alien – After the joy of Prometheus, its time to re-watch Alien after 20 years away. 

Four appears to be a good and pretty achievable number to aim at, but I do have a few social nights out this week, so as always come Sunday we will see how I did.  I am also aiming to get one review up mid-week.

How about you guys, what’s your plans this week?

  • Starring – Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender
  • Written By – John Spaihts and Damon Lindelof
  • Year – 2012
  • Length – 124 mins

Right from the off, I think it is worth saying I thought Prometheus was fantastic and probably the best film I have seen so far this year.  It is an epic piece of film-making, during which Director Ridley Scott takes us on a gloriously mesmerizing journey following the crew of the spaceship USS Prometheus as they travel in pursuit of the answer to the ultimate question: Where do we come from?
