No, you're not alone. I watched the Avengers, and I didn't think it was any more special than every other Marvel movie that's come down the pike in recent memory. In fact, i've seen far better Marvel movies than this. Not going to completely shit on it, I think it's a decent and fun movie, but I don't see what made it so special. I certainly don't get some people's claim that this is the greatest super hero movie ever made lulz
As for Prometheus. If I could compare it to anything, i'd say it's a lot like Event Horizon to me. I didn't notice too many nonsensical moments, for the most part I was entertained while watching it in theaters. I think it's much better when you pick up on some of the subtle references Ridley throws in that are callbacks to mysteries in the original movies. The acting ranged from ok, good to great depending on who were talking about (Michael Fassbender is just fantastic as David, Noomi does a good job too) Most of the movie made sense to me. There was some dragging when it came to pacing, but it wasn't that bad. Special Effects were gorgeous, though i'm still more a fan of the Blade Runner-esque organic look rather than things being too synthetic. All in all, I think it's an entertaining movie, good even. Doesn't top my 2012 list, but I wouldn't consider it a waste of time for sci fi fans, and especially for fans of the Alien lore.
