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.

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.
tat r impossible It ca no haz timmy durton. If it r was TIm BuRTon movie y it no haz Jonny Deep n Helena Carter-Boxom? hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm?

Maybe that's a good thing, considering how badly Dark Shadows tanked, Burton could use a break from Johnny for at least 1 movie.

it was probably due to lack of alien universe knowledge. i love alien, really like aliens, did not enjoy alien 3, didn't watch any of the others. it was almost exactly what i expected.

I LOVE when people get mad at someone for not loving a movie the way they loved it. They are the same people that get mad when they are having a beer and you decide not to.

SCI-FI is for a select few either you love it or not. Rarely does a Sci-Fi movie evoke excitement to non-sci-fi folks.

Like some folks love Star Trek; Battleship Galactica; Firefly; Dr. Who; etc... I have honestly tried to watch all of those and to me they are blah.

It takes a movie like Star Wars in order to appeal to the masses. Yes Alien was very popular but most people will remember it for the alien shooting out of the guy's gut; Weaver's skimpy underwear; Ash being a robot and the ending. They won't recall they were on the Nostromo that they went to investigate a ship on moon LV-223 etc. Only a true Sci Fi nerd would remember all the details.
