- Prometheus Notes: I saw Prometheus in Ultra AVX and in 3D and I saw it with my sisters Jamie and Suzie, I mention "The Problem with Prequels" which is the fact that you know where the story is going and I also mention ensemble casts that really work in film such as Aliens, King Arthur (2004), and The Magnificent Seven.
- See my vlog revisiting Alien here, Aliens here, Alien 3 here, Alien Resurrection here and bonus episode reviewing/revisiting Predator and AVP (Alien vs Predator) here.
- The Aliens Quadrilogy and series is very much part of my family history, especially with my siblings Jamie, Suzie & Jason, click through to see their sites and awesome adventures!
- I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who has been kind enough to not spoil Prometheus - thank you. thank you. thank you :)
- See the original Bondathon post with schedule and film listing
- During the Diamonds are Forever review I mention The Biggest Loser and indicated I may implement a 'yellow line' or 'red line' for the Bond films to separate the ones I like from the ones I actively dislike.
- See more June 19, 2012 DVD releases here.
- Reviews of films mentioned during the DVD releases: 65_RedRoses, Exit Humanity and strongly recommend Atom Egoyan's The Sweet Hereafter.
- I mention several films by Guy Maddin: Brand Upon the Brain!, The Saddest Music in the World, and My Winnipeg as well as stumbling on the title of his film Dracula: Pages from a Virgin's Diary
