    That's quite an ethical dilemma. Is the harm she caused any less because she can't remember she did it? Is she still culpable?
    2. I think if a war criminal had alzheimers I would want them tried even if they didn't remember it, I consider what Thatcher did worthy of some sort of inquest or trial
    Don't vote her in. Unlike Hitler, she didn't get deposed by outside parties and wasn't needed to. Every policy she passed was thanks to a majority in votes. I know most people these days haven't a clue how to vote responsibly, the past ten years of conflicts and protests thereof show that clearly, but back then? really?

    It was the 80s, people with money started getting cunty and selfish and she convinced them that they could live great if they shit on the lower classes. None of my family ever voted for her, and the policies are passed more by parliament than public vote

    The Innkeepers 6/10


    While the movie was overall enjoyable, I felt the story had no depth to it. The characters were given little to no backstory, so the viewer was left with no attachment, and when the story finally starts to pick up, it abruptly ends with no explanation as to what or why.


    Dream House 7/10


    I'm not really sure what to say about this one. Halfway through, you would think it was written by M. Night Shyamalan, and despite being pretty predictable, wasn't a half bad movie. More of a watch once, and enjoy, but very unlike to watch again kind of movie.

    the blind swordsman: zatoichi 2/5
    :< worst Kitano movie I've seen, plot was so uninteresting, no energy to anything. at least there were some totally weird funny moments that reminded me of some other Kitano films like Sonatine.
    that's the one where he's super old and it turns out he isn't blind right? yeah, that one sucked. mind you, there are about 28 zatoichi films, but that one is probably the worst of them.

    Prometheus - 6/10...

    Seriously disappointing, especially in the story front.
    Felt like it was edited in a hurry and most of the acting was really quite bad save for Fassbender.
    Made me jump a few times and it was pretty to look at though.
    Wouldn't call the acting bad. The script was pretty mediocre.

    saw Melancholia.

    probably the most soothing of the Lars movies.
    There's a running theme through pretty much all his movies I have noticed. Well I've seen about 5 of them now, and they've all been roughly about female depression.

    It's not ridiculously intense or ridiculously depressing. It just feels serene, and it's a quality I like about this, unlike many of his other movies.

    Quite often the point of his films is the power shift between two characters. Melancholia is about how the strong become weak when theres something to lose and how the weak become strong because they don't give a shit. Antichrist had a similar theme. I thought Melancholia was a far superior film to Antichrist. Big fan of his stuff.

    Prometheus - 7.5/10

    I really liked Prometheus, it's flaws were a drawback, but I was able to ignore them. Some parts were somewhat pointless, and some parts were perfect. I also loved that almost all the scenes in this film were sets, especially inside the alien ship.

    Some drawbacks were,    Why did David poison Holloway? If it was to extract the Alien out of him, then it failed. It's just as if David wanted him dead. And I don't get why David decided to turn on the crew. Also, I really disliked the ending, it just felt rushed. They take off, leaving what ever happened behind. I think it's cause the Nostromos from Alien is going there, but honestly I hope this has a recut and a sequel to fill in the blanks

    Prometheus - 7.9/10

    The first like 4/5 were just so amazing, but then after the absolutely horrifying    abortion scene    it just kinda became more hit and miss (   although I didn't care much for the zombie attack scene either   ), and the lack of answers combined with answers that didn't make any sense started to get annoying. Plus I had my hopes up for a conclusion as badass as the one in Alien and I didn't really feel like this one came close. I also felt some of the characters were just wasted    yes lets reveal vickers is the daughter of Weyland and then promptly kill her off in a stupid fashion. And who the fuck grabs an alien worm when it's obviously not willing to play nice?    But overall I still enjoyed it.

    Also to the above post    the nostromo isn't going there. This planet was LV233. LV426 is where the nostromo went, which makes you wonder why they show us a semi-xenomorph get made if we're on a totally different planet. it's like they wanted to connect to alien but didn't at the same time. Why not show us what happened on 426 instead? Oh well. And the sequel will depart even further from the Alien story and focus pretty much solely on the engineers.    I hope they make the sequel regardless, that'll be interesting.

    I just came back from Prometheus too
    Overall I enjoyed it, after the internet really lowered my expectations, but not in a way that I've probably ever enjoyed any other movie before.
    Alien was a claustrophobic horror, Aliens was sci-fi action, and this... I don't even know, it was trying to channel a bit of both and lots of scenes felt like Alien homages.
    The dialogue was a bit iffy at times and as postal mentioned a lot of the character decisions were extremely stupid.
    The only character I really cared about was Shaw, and David but that was more a testament to Michael Fassbender's acting than David's writing, whose thought process seemed a bit illogical for a cyborg/robot/whatever.
    A lot of the scenes also felt a bit rushed, like they were trying to cram a lot into this movie and it definitely feels like a movie meant to start a series instead of a standalone piece.

    Now the part of the movie I enjoyed was basically not even in the movie itself. I was simply intrigued by the movie's universe and all the questions it brought up. I don't think I'll ever see this movie again and it just really made me want to rewatch Alien, but I'm really looking forward to the obvious eventual sequel.

    No Country for Old Men: 9.6/10

    Easily one of the best movies of the 2000's. Great acting, great writing, and enjoyable overall. I especially liked Javier Bardem's performance as Anton. The worst part about the movie was that I could not understand Tommy Lee Jones at all, his quiet voice combined with the southern accent made his speech extremely hard to make out. The Coen brothers delivered another great movie.

    .
    I felt a lot of attachment to the characters due to how well they were written. You don't always need a backstory - some characters are just cool and likable in a "they could be great friends of mine" kind of way, that if you just met them you'd like them and care about them.

    So basically    Alien has no affiliation with Prometheus anymore? It'd be nice for Scott to make a snag at Alien, at least mention it.    Oh well, and yeah I hope for a sequel. It should be a bit better than Prometheus.

    Yeah there were plot holes, but definitely NOT to an extent of it ruining the movie. It gives the viewer room for imagination.

    Michael Fassbender did an amazing job. And visually speaking......just wow.

    I love the way Ridley Scott directs, he did an outstanding job in this. The suspense/moments of chaos.....I definitely got that feel as when I watched moments of Alien.

    If you're even slightly interested in seeing this, go see it. "Major disappointment" my ass. I'm an enormous fan of Alien/Aliens and I think it does the franchise well. Can't wait till this comes out on Blu-Ray!

    I honestly think that because of how often crappy movies are made nowadays, people don't know a good flick when they see it. So when something great like this comes out, they'll make it seem like it's some disappointment.

    Edited:

    actually I think maybe 6 is too high for something so forgettable

    Edited:

    this is why i usually think on it for a while and let a movie sink in before declaring what i think

    God damn I wish I could see it. Wes Anderson has colored me impressed ever since I saw The Royal Tenenbaums. His writing sometimes is too pretentious, but otherwise, a soild director who makes films in a unique way. Moonrise Kingdom isn't showing in a theater in about 5 hour radius of where I live. It's depressing.

    Edited:

    Also, the last movie I saw was About Schmidt. I'd give it a 9.4/10. Jack Nicholsan is old, and this movie shows a fiery man who's became docile in his age, so it's such a perfect, ironic feeling to see him act this way knowing it's how he is. The writing is superb, Nicholson is in one of his oddest roles, but he's still amazing as always is. And this may be one of the ore depressing movies I've seen, especially seeing as the entire movie leads to the last, heart-felt scene.

    Prometheus

    like 7.something /10 I guess

    good acting, good effects, good plot up until the last half or so then it almost goes completely to shit

    the characters make some truly baffling decisions and seem to change their opinions on how to react to things in a matter of minutes

    for example

       two scientist dudes get lost because they were too freaked out by the big dead aliens to stick around

    ok sure that's fine

    then a living alien worm that is very obviously hostile shows up and they're just like

    AWW COME HERE BABY DON'T BE SHY WOW YOU'RE ADORABLE I'M GONNA PET YOU"

    what the hell dude 
      

    enjoyable but ultimately disappointing and it wasn't nearly what I was hoping for

    even if it wasn't a direct prequel to alien I would have been fine had the script not becoming a baffling mess of bullshit and bad decisions in the end

    Edited:

    michael fassbender made the movie if nothing else see it for him

    I don't really like rating stuff in numbers but I really liked it. Jason Statham being a badass, Clive Owen being a badass, Robert De Niro being a bit of a badass in the times he's in, an interesting spy-like storyline and some really good suspense.
