Because when you’re on an alien planet with oxygen, the first thing you do is take off your helmet because your gadget says it’s safe… Right.
So for me, it was absolutely Prometheus. Had really high expectations for this flick and it just… sucked.

The poll for the video games you’re looking forward to in 2012 is still open, as is the poll about the best movies of 2011— I’m probably going to post the final list for that one closer to the Oscars, since I still have several movies I need to watch to make an informed editor’s choice list— but in the meantime, why not entertain yourself by voting for the movies you’re most looking forward to in 2012.
Now that it’s a new year, let’s talk about what you’re looking forward to in 2012, starting with video games. There are a ton of exciting video games coming out this year, but which ones are you most looking forward to? There’s a poll below, pick as many as you feel strongly about.
