Soledad Pines commented on 'Prometheus,' parricide, and Ridley Scott's returning of the 'Alien' franchise to the big questionsThe last thing I imagine Alien & all thereafter - is being a franchise, but alas! This is what wiki predicates. If anything, it's more of a wonderful opportunity for great director's to piggyback on. Scott's evil vs good theme is somewhat put aside here, and themes of maker vs creation and omnipotence vs self/world is revisited from Bladerunner days. I'm just happy to see RScott go back to his set roots since I believe him to be a master of set directing. Was worried there for a second because for the recent past, it seemed he had a film set allergy! Major Kudos to Fassbender, Pearce, Elba, Rapace & Theron's acting as well. The film is more about coming full circle with age old dilemmas at best.

Soledad Pines commented on The very white poetry of 'Mad Men'No matter how much Mad Men & The Wire are dissected - they will still be categorized for what we actually are staring at and processing: shows about white folk and criminals. This is the beauty about art. It is subjective. Fan is short for fanatic, but guess what? Steve had the guts to say what a whole bunch are thinking. One persons fav show is someone else clicked away after briefly viewed quick stop. That is the reality of it.
