Prometheus

(R) ★★★☆☆

Ridley Scott returns to the big screen in this sort-of Alien prequel, and the result is a little bit of everything. Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) is an archaelogist leading a space mission in search of a link between human and alien DNA. What she finds is trouble. With Charlize Theron on board as a tougher-than-Ripley type, Idris Elba as the ship’s captain and Michael Fassbender as an excellently off-putting android, the film works as elegant and stately sci-fi. The writing’s not the best, but Scott’s a pro.

Idina Menzel

By Steve Bornfeld

One helluva broad. Bold and saucy—with a voice they could’ve heard back at the Tony Awards, televised while the Tony-winner herself was entertaining Las Vegas—Idina Menzel is a broad in the best sense, her artistry delivered with salty, sassy-gal earthiness: Revealing how she sang “Love for Sale” to seduce her college vocal teacher. Then powerfully and poignantly interpreting the classic for what it really is—not playful flirtation, but soul-shredding heartache.
