Movie of the Month – June
By Geeky Gem and Hmsbeefnuts
Well it’s June, which can mean only one thing. Its movie of the month time again. I must say we here at All Geek love this time of month, as it means one of us was right last month and one of us was very wrong in our picks. This usually leads to some mocking and much fun. Finally the Blockbuster season is upon us, which makes picking the movie of the month just that little harder.
When I sat down to figure out my pick for this months I looked all over the internet and in my monthly movie magazine trying to figure out what I should pick. It was then I picked up a stack of my monthly magazines and there it was, my pick for June starring at me from the shiny cover.
Prometheus, sees Ridley Scott not only return to one of my favourite movie franchise’s ever but he has gone way back to where it all began. Prometheus tells the tale of a team of explorers who discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race. Now as you will see from the trailer below this looks fantastic and I for one cant wait to see it.
Hope you get a chance to see it and enjoy what promises to be a fantastic trip back to the start of the Alien story.
Hello, Hmsbeefnuts here. Up there somewhere Geeky Gem is trying to tell you that the best movie this month is going to be Prometheus. Well, she is almost certainly wrong!! Well, probably not, but my task today is to pick another movie out in June that I believe will be better than her pick, even if I don’t actually believe it! So here goes. June is a funny old month, the movie going public is trapped between to behemoths of the super hero world, Marvel’s fantastic amazing The Avengers, and DC’s The Dark Knight Rises, which clearly I haven’t seen, but will surely be the end to one of the greatest trilogy’s ever made.
Tricky then. I clearly can’t choose Prometheus, which, although looks great and interesting and epic, isn’t really my thing. I’m in the ‘Aliens was much better than Alien’ camp, and this return to the Alien franchise, if indeed the xenomorphs are actually in Prometheus at all, looks good, but not quite what I’m after.
Another option this month is Snow White and The Huntsman. The second Snow White film this year, and by far the better looking. This looks more like an epic fantasy film than a fairy tale, something that I am very happy about. Thor himself, Chris Hemmesworth drops his hammer and picks up an axe, Charlise Theron looks smoking hot as the evil queen and that chick from Twilight, you know the mopy looking one, plays Snow White. This looks dark, gritty and soldier shatteringly good. Scroll down for the trailer….
Looks good right? Until next month then, where my choice is not going to be very difficult at all, I bid you adieu.
