Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

Saw The Avengers. The plot is pretty much your basic buddy movie formula: Problem occurs, buddies needed to solve problem, buddies don't get along, catalyst/epiphany, buddies get along, buddies solve problem. Just insert "Heroes" for "buddies", "Crazy supernatural crisis" for "problem" and "kick the ass out of" for "solve".

The dialogue is generally really good, the movie stays true to its genre and keeps continuity w/ other hero movies. Definitely a movie to see on the big screen rather than waiting for it to come out on video.

"Hulk ... Smash"

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

Prometheus - Enjoyed it. The movie itself was shot beautifully and the graphics were incredible. The movie alone was worth it via special affects and landscape. That said, expect to leave with many questions unresolved. (as is intended) If you ever watched Lost and Lindelof's writing, you'll understand what I'm talking about. I keep hearing people harp on the "plot" in regards to this, but the plot is fine. I think it's the unanswered questions that remain that confuse this with a bad plot. I think they've done a remarkable job with this stand alone movie, with somewhat tying it in to the Alien franchise. It's nothing like Alien or Aliens in terms of scary or action packed. It's somewhere in between but with hidden agendas and a great cast, and some cool HOLY SHIT moments. Overall, a very good Sci-fi movie, but most likely won't be winning any Oscars.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread



People have really shot this movie down saying its lame, and Hollywood has run out of ideas, not realizing this is a BOOK. I finished the book last week and I thought the ending blew. I wasn't happy with it. But since I read the book, I have to go see the movie just to compare. Its a Tim Burton movie and its rated R (Yay violence!) So I'm hoping the effects will be superb even if everything else sucks.

To be honest I'm not expecting a lot out of the movie and I could really only see the people who read the book enjoying the movie.

Not even understanding how you can walk away from that movie and say that unless you have no idea about the Alien universe (space jockey) or you were expecting something completely different. Hell, even Roger Ebert liked it and this guy kills most...lol


'Prometheus,' Ridley Scott, and the blockbuster 'Alien' franchise - Grantland

Quote:
And here's the thing — despite being one of the summer's biggest and most commercially ambitious films, Prometheus is probably the single strangest one since the original. It manages, in the way that Scott's first Alien did, to wed serious and quixotic questions about creation and the bitter origins of life to some of the most unlikely, visceral, and entertaining horror scenes ever put to film. One sequence in particular is probably the most vivid and outright revolting thing any director in this franchise has attempted since that first alien came gurgling out of John Hurt's chest.

It's the type of spectacle that restores your faith in the type of event cinema that dominates the summer, and though Prometheus was clearly expensive to make (though not compared to some of the other landmark blockbuster releases on the 2012 calendar), it's not the film's size or scope that make it great; it's the quality of detail and ambition that Scott and nerd-god screenwriter Damon Lindelof (working off a draft first written by Jon Spaihts) bring to the work. It remains baffling that somehow this, of all franchises, has become the one where directors and screenwriters make personal statements and explore big (albeit regretfully Erich von Däniken–informed) ideas about the nature of man and the universe. But that's what Scott is using it for.
