The Great Debates: Alien vs. Aliens

Given the release of “Prometheus” this past week, the “Alien” franchise has been pushed back to the forefront. I’m not sure that anyone would prefer that movie to either of these, so I’m fairly certain that the debate over the best film in the Franchise still boils down to these two.

So let’s hash it out once and for all.

Prometheus

Heralded by an amazing advertising campaign, featuring an impressive cast, and boasting an impeccable pedigree, “Prometheus” was a film burdened with expectations that few films face. Ridley Scott was returning to the “Alien” universe, and he had a full house of incredible actors and actresses going with him. The film’s astounding trailers were accompanied by a series of highly effective viral videos that whet our appetites for sci-fi awesomeness.

It’s perhaps unfair then, that I saddle it with the expectations I had going in. Those are mine.

Tossin’ It Out There: What do YOU think of Charlize Theron?

“Snow White and the Huntsman” last week, “Prometheus this week. No doubt about it, Charlize Theron is front and center right now.

She began with “2 Days in the Valley” and has put together 41 credits on IMDb. She has the two movies this year, and three in various stages of pre-production – she’s definitely hardworking. She won an Oscar for her role as serial killer Aileen Wuornos in “Monster”, and was nominated for another a few years later for “North Country”. Her filmography has a wide variety of movies, and even includes a brief stint on the comedy “Arrested Development”

So what do YOU think of Charlize? Can’t get enough of her? Sick of her yet? Overrated? Underrated? Was the biggest fallacy of “Snow White and the Huntsman” that Kristen Stewart could ever be considered fairer than the lovely Ms. Theron? :D

Whatever it is, we want to hear it, let us know! What do YOU think of Charlize Theron?
