DVD Playhouse--October 2012

7 October 2012 5:52 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

By Allen Gardner

Prometheus (20th Century Fox) Ridley Scott’s quasi-prequel to his 1979 classic “Alien” has an intergalactic exploratory team (Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba) arriving on a uncharted planet, where they discover what appears to be a dormant alien spacecraft and what might be the first discovery of intelligent life outside of Earth. Of course, everything goes straight to hell before you can scream “Don’t touch that egg!” Sumptuous visuals and strong performances from the cast (not to mention a nearly-perfect first half) can’t compensate for gaping plot and logic holes that nearly sink the proceedings in the film’s protracted second half. It feels as though some very crucial footage wound up on the cutting room floor.

The building in question is Two International Financial Centre, over 400m tall and at the time the tallest in the city (it has since been overtaken by the International Commerce Centre in Kowloon).

R.I.P. Vidal Sassoon

9 May 2012 3:33 PM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Revolutionary hairstylist and salon founder Vidal Sassoon died this morning of natural causes in his Los Angeles home. He was 84. Sassoon was a pioneer with hair shears, eschewing fussy, time-intensive hairdos in favor of sleek, easy to care for, “wash and wear” looks. His iconic cuts included the bob (particularly the sleek, slanted version made legendary by World Of Suzie Wong star Nancy Kwan), Mia Farrow’s legendary pixie cut in Rosemary’s Baby, and the “five-point cut” sported by model turned Vogue creative director Grace Coddington. They ushered modernist angles into hairstyling and, as Farrow commented on the »
