"A Million Ways To Die In The West" may remind MacFarlane’s core audience of what they’re missing by not having Westerns as part of their regular movie menu.

First, the good news: 'Prometheus' is a captivating experience, meant to be savored on the big screen. Ridley Scott’s reputation as a master craftsman is well deserved and he offers up a hugh, impressive, eye-opening production. It’s also well cast, with two forceful female characters played for all they’re worth by Noomi Rapace (Sweden’s Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and Charlize Theron.

Sometimes, while I’m watching a bad movie, one burning question arises: “What were they thinking?” That’s what I asked myself while suffering through 'Snow White and the Huntsman', a putrid, and seemingly endless, retelling of the famous fairy tale. Grim and gruesome, it’s a soul-sucking two-hour-plus endurance test that parents should avoid taking their kids to see except as an extreme form of punishment.

What are we to make of Young Adult? Clearly, we’re meant to applaud Charlize Theron’s willingness to use her beauty more as a shield than an asset as she plays a thoroughly unlikable character. A onetime high-school heartthrob, she’s fallen into a pitiable state—barely employed as a ghost writer, living an empty existence in the Big City and drowning her self-loathing in alcohol. For a combination of not-entirely-credible reasons she returns to her hick hometown, determined to win back her erstwhile boyfriend (Patrick Wilson), who’s now happily married and the father of a baby girl.
