A wonder to behold.
Before the release of Prometheus (2012), director Ridley Scott insisted that the movie was NOT a prequel to his hit 1979 movie, Alien. Of course, this was all misdirection on Scott’s part as Prometheus was clearly a prequel to Alien.
Here’s a list of our ‘favourite’ death film/TV scenes. Sure, some of them are melodramatic and in fantastical settings but death is a fact of life that as human beings, we will always be trying to come to terms with. Until of course, our own time is up! Enjoy (or not, as the case may be).

Yeah yeah everybody’s got a fuckin’ list of recommended 2017 movies. Here’s ours – in order of anticipation. Nuff said.
2016 is almost done with. And what have we learnt from modern pop culture? That rock ’n’ roll is dead? That nostalgia & fan service in movies trumps originality? That real life is slowly but surely upstaging science fiction for sheer bizarreness?
In 1977, Star Wars made the scifi movie highly bankable, taking the concepts of the pulp serials of the 30s and the B-movies of the 50s into the commercial stratosphere. Almost 40 years later, Star Wars still reigns supreme in the form of The Force Awakens and Rogue One – massive worldwide blockbusters which have captured the imagination of the casual movie-goer.
