Why did I like a movie that the rest of the Needless Things crew didn't? No, it's not just to be argumentative (although that's a good guess). Maybe it was because that was how I chose to have my friends celebrate my birthday with me. The last time we did this I made everyone go see the Poltergeist remake so by any standards this was a far more successful birthday movie outing. It was not because I was drinking. I only had 2 beers, and it would take a lot more than that to convince me that I liked something that sucked. I liked Prometheus a lot, and this felt like a good next step to me. I felt like the gore was well balanced, the evolution of the Xenomorphs is coming along nicely, and we're progressing the story in a way that doesn't require survivors of this movie making it far into the next movie. Who doesn't want to see a horrifically mutated Danny McBride?
Beth got her start writing for a site called Movie Criticism for the Retarded (which has been reborn as dorkdroppings.com. Check it out sometime), but was pulled out of an early retirement to write for Needless Things. When she isn't writing she plays video games and watches bad horror movies while eagerly awaiting the zombie apocalypse. She may try to save her husband and/or their cats, but luckily hasn't had to make those tough decisions yet.
