Well done James Bond.

Prometheus gets more and more retarded the more I think about it. I think its best for everyone if we just forget it ever happened .

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

I thought Prometheus was fine for what it was. it's an origins movie that is loosely tied to the original series, so people that were expecting Alien and Aliens would obviously be disappointed.


What pisses me off most about Prometheus is the fact that it grossed so well. Now, there are talks of Ridley Scott putting his planned Blade Runner sequel on the backburner in favor of a Prometheus follow up. FAWK! If Ridley gives into the almighty dollar at the expense of artistic integrity, i'll be one unhappy camper.

I liked how the final 3rd of Skyfall was Home Alone with guns.

And what if we were not expecting any Aliens, and still left disappointed?

It's your prerogative not to like it. I don't see what's that bad about it, but then again I didn't go into with with any sort of expectation that would set up disappointment. Ridley subtly and directly answered a slew of decades long questions amungst geeks of the franchise, and I liked the esoteric implications of the movie. As a stand alone Sci Fi thriller, I didn't think it was bad at all. Ridley's weakest Sci Fi movie to date, but not bad compared to a lot of movies i've seen in the genre.

I mentioned Alien and Aliens because I remember reading a shit ton of negative reviews pointing out the fact that the movie has little to do with Alien. I think it does, but I also think that a lot of people set themselves up for disappointment because they expected the overtones to be similar to the original movies, and there are A LOT of fans of the original movies that wanted more of the same. The movie ended up being hyped as part of the Alien canon, despite Ridley doing his best not to make that obvious.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

It's just genuinely bad for the majority. A few good moments were then pissed away with awful nonsensical moments. The whole film was like that.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

I still stand by my original outlook, which was enjoying it outside of the plot holes. (might be going a bit too strong with that term here)

Better than Avengers. Yes. I'm purposely trying to make a point. I am serious though. Avengers sucked.
