I didn’t dislike Rock of Ages because it fondly recalls a decade as vacuous as Paris Hilton. I disliked Rock of Ages because I really don’t care for Ken and Barbie dolls.

Prometheus

The second great film of 2012 (after The Avengers) and Ridley Scott’s first great film since the director’s cut of Kingdom of Heaven. It is not the equal of Blade Runner or Alien; but it takes everything you think you know of that world and turns it on its head. It harkens back to the 1979 film, but establishes an identity all its own. People expecting a horror/action movie may be disappointed; Prometheus is more purely sci-fi and is more ambitious than most movies even attempt. GRADE: A

Bernie

Ended up seeing this instead of Sound of My Voice. Turned out to be a very funny pseudo- doc about a funeral director/well-loved small-town man turned murderer. Great performances by Jack Black, Matthew McCoanughey and Shirley MacLaine. A-
