It is 30 years since Ridley Scott's Alien burst on to cinema screens and introduced us to Ellen Ripley, chestbursters and body horror The other week I went to see a science-fiction thriller called Pandorum which opens a ' rather memorably a ' with a scene in which a befuddled Dennis Quaid falls out of a space-pod dressed only in his underpants.

I for one, hated Pandorum. I thought it sluggish, visually unappealing, Poorly directed and sloppily acted. I normally love Dennis Quaid's performances, but in this he had an impossible task trying to make something out of this meddled mish mosh of boredom. The shock scenes were telegraphed and totally contrived.

The movie was ok, nothing to do back flips about, but Dennis Quaid did a great job, I think if he would have had more of an action role in it the movie rather than just sitting in the room most of the time, it would have been a lot better. These directors need to utilize these big stars better, it’s not quaids fault they don’t use him better in scenes, he’s a brilliant actor but he can only hold a movies core and appearance for so long just on his acting alone. I hope the next movie he’s in, that he gets to really star in the movie as a lead actor rather than the director focusing on some newbie actor. Dennis Quaid can rock on the screen if they let him; he’s a big time money maker for the studios. I paid $15 dollars to see Quaid in action not to go see Pandorum.
