Have the office to myself today so I just finished watching "Goon". It was alright. About what I expected. Next up, "Rise of the Planet of the Apes".

I bought Goon last week and will watch it this weekend (I forgot I had it sitting at home).

Oh yeah, it was good. Nothing great so that's what I meant about it being what I expected. Funny, entertaining. Definitely no surprises so the previews did the movie justice.

Going to Prometheus tonight. I had no idea it was an Alien prequel until the other day, so my expectations have changed accordingly.

So, The Rise of the Planet of the Apes is about to make me cry....in disappointment I could've accepted the movie but it's getting idiotic right now. I guess I'll call them the "prison scenes" just have me damn near laughing out loud it's so absurd.

What??? I never heard that (the prequel), when did this get known?....I don't see movies in theaters anymore (unless they are kids movies with my little ones)....so I'll still wait until it hits Blu Ray...but I love and own all the Alien(s) movies...still think the 2nd was the best IMO.

Do they have any appearances from any original cast members? Sigourney Weaver? Lance Henriksen?(he was in the 2nd and last)

From what I understand, no. But it's also to take place WAY before the original movie. And answer some of the seemingly random questions. When I watched the first full trailer not knowing it was supposed to be a prequel, I saw enough imagery (the life-support pods, the eggs, etc) that made me wonder if Ridley Scott had just plain run out of ideas. Now I get it. And the dead giveaway was that they mention the Weyland Corporation (obviously a precursor to the Weyland-Yutani Corp).

I read the gist of a review on RottenTomatoes after learning this and the vibe was that it combines the suspense horror of the first film with the raw action of the 2nd.
