It’s Friday, and that means new movies are in the theater. The one we have been super stoked about for the last couple of months has been Ridley Scott’s Prometheus.

A team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

Did you see the movie?  We want to know what you think.  Share your thoughts and ideas – your likes and dislikes – and answer that all important question, “Aliens prequel or not?”

GO!

    I liked it, it had some major plot holes but overall was really damn good.

    Is it an ALIEN prequel? I’m not clear on that.

    Prometheus felt a lot like Lost.

    The writers began creating this grand mythology that could be really awesome, they just never get around to exploring it or explaining it. In the end it was just a B or C sci-fi movie script with a big budget.

      Oh I so hope you are wrong, because LOST felt like a deflating blow to my midsection and I am really looking forward to this movie :(

    I’ve argued about this film with the missus for two days now. I’ve deconstructed the narrative and the themes and ideas within it. I’ve had every logical and illogical flaw pointed out…and I still can’t not love this film.

    I don’t see plot holes…just ambiguities that are open to fill with my own ideas and connections. There’s a pile of footage on the cutting room floor, and I’d love to see how/if it changes the narrative in a Director’s Cut, but I love that in this day and age, a film so huge isn’t spoon-feeding the audience what to think.

    I’m not saying it isn’t flawed (it is, almost entirely the fault of the script) but I can completely forgive that because whole is such a glorious experience.

    I loved the movie. But there were definitely times I wanted to yell out at the screen. For a bunch of scientists, they’re pretty terrible at their job. No first contact protocols, not prepared for unknown biological attack. And there’s very little scientific method to their approach – hey, why don’t we just barge in and look at all the cool stuff with no real plan how to document what we find? And don’t get me started on the differences between correlation and causation.
    But despite that, I couldn’t help but love it. In another directors hands, this could have been a boring, drawn out movie. But even the slow parts grabbed your attention and had you focused on what was going on. Very much recommend.

    Didn’t like the ending. Since this is for people who’ve seen it I’m gonna forgo the spoiler alerts.

    That ending of “I want to ask then why?” Phfft! That payload of weaponized chest burster should have been dropped on planet baldy.
    The movie was better looking but not better written. Could have been the hype or the been there done that. But to me it was just ok.
