The most anticipated film of 2012 — Ridley Scott’s mega-budget sci-fi epic Prometheus — has landed. Is it worth the hype?

Meanwhile, Mel Gibson is back in bad ass mode in the snazzy and violent Mexico-set action/drama Get the Gringo. 

Parallax Podcast hosts Luke Buckmaster and Rich Haridy discuss Prometheus (100% spoiler free), Gringo plus two new DVD releases: the superhero found footage film Chronicle and acclaimed American indie Martha Marcy May Marlene. Cult film expert Zak Hepburn then joins them to pluck an obscure film from his extensive collection.
