Great prequel to a masterpiece, this is probably the Sci-fi movie of the year and Scott knew how to return back to his territory of making cool Sci-fi movies.
The 3D was great and i like how it explores into the alienverse.
Best thoughts about the ideas in the movie so far. If you have time read:
Of course this is just someone's personal thoughts on the movie which doesn't mean that they are right but there are many good points in it.
So...why is Damon Lindelof public enemy #1?
I haven't seen "Prometheus" but the folks on Twitter are acting like this guy wrote the worst screenplay ever. His twitter account was/is a war zone. Is there a real reason for all of this or it's just a bunch of film snobs overreacting as usual?
On a side note, I just hope that all of that will teach Lindelof to keep his big mouth shut. He's been trashing a lot of famous and successful movies (yes, including "Transformers") ever since he made his Twitter account. And now he's the one being trashed. Irony is a bitch, Damon.
"You know why the departures and the arrivals at LAX are on separate levels? So the 30,000 heartbreakers that come here each month don't notice the 30,000 that are leaving with their hearts broken."
Lindelof = Lost = unanswered questions upon unanswered questions.
Therefore, anything that felt remotely confusing/ambiguous in Prometheus = Lindelof = going to the well with Lost-style of screenwriting = Lindelof sucks.
On a personal note, I really hope the DC/EC lets this one breathe a bit more. The ambiguity didn't bother me so much as some of the characters did in the film. Fassbender as David, on the other hand, pretty much nailed it.
I wonder what will happen in the Star Trek sequel. : rol
I think that because I walked into Prometheus without having seen any of the major advertisements, and not following articles about the movie was the most benefitial thing for the movie experience.
I had a slight idea that it was an aliens prequel, but 75% through the movie I had decided that must have been a myth... then the ending happened.
The most disappointing thing was that all of the questions the movie raised were everything but answered...
But, I am however looking forward to a sequel because this movie lied to me and didn't do what it said it was going to do...
The 3d felt kind of like looking at a 3ds screen... It was alright but not fantastic. Definitely skip on the 3d IMO.
This would have been a great explanation of the squid like creature, the Engineer suit and the Alien. Who knows maybe they could work it out in the sequel.
The creature is one of the first designs of Giger about the Facehugger.
I liked the movie, i think the director would make a great Dead Space movie!
but i had more fun watching Madagascar 3. lol
It's becoming pretty clear that the movie is dividing people into two camps. One camp who love the movie for what it is, that it explains how people have come the Planet Earth and things like that. And a second camp where people are disappointed that the movie isn't a clear prequel to Alien and it doesn't explain how the "space jockey" ship ended up on LV-426 and why the ship landed or crashed there.
In this case, I'll choose camp two and say I was disappointed after seeing the movie. It's clear that it's a prequel to a prequel to Alien. And that's assuming Ridley Scott is willing to make a sequel to Prometheus that will be a prequel to Alien and give answers for all the questions that Alien raised.
Then there's the high tech stuff that's way more advanced than in Alien that I don't like, even when Prometheus takes place many years before the events in Alien. Why would people go back to low tech if they have already invented high tech stuff? It doesn't make any sense!
Like, take David and the hyper sleep chambers in Prometheus. Why would Wayland Industries make Ash in Alien less technical advanced than David is in Prometheus? And the hyper sleep chambers. I won't even comment on that one.
Now I'm only looking for the Blu-ray release, cause it's gonna be 20 minutes longer and include 30 minutes of deleted scenes. Maybe that will give answers to some questions that the theatrical version didn't give answers to...
Dude, we have no freaking idea of what happens between this and the first Alien. Earth could go in an economical crisis, lowering budgets and technology everywhere.
Scott stated that it wasn't an actual prequel, he wanted an original sotry, not a prequel.
Or you rather have 3 prequels full with xenomorphs instead of original stories in the same universe?
We're getting a sequel, so I've got nothing to worry about.
Hope he's gonna do a sequel, cause he's never done a sequel to any of his movies before. He's gonna do a new Blade Runner that is planned to premiere in 2014, but I don't know if that'll be a sequel or a prequel to the first one.
Hampton Fancher is in talks to reunite with his Blade Runner director Ridley Scott to develop the idea for the original screenplay for the Alcon Entertainment, Scott Free, and Bud Yorkin produced follow up to the ground-breaking 1982 science fiction classic, it was announced by Alcon co-founders and co-Chief Executive Officers Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove.
The filmmakers are also revealing for the first time that the much-anticipated project is intended to be a sequel to the renowned original. The filmmakers would reveal only that the new story will take place some years after the first film concluded.
Did i watch the same movie as some of the other members? Some of the reviews and comments had me thinking of what people were saying when Inception was released and they way people complained that it was too hard to follow, understand or too Sci-fi, shut up noobs! If you can't handle the grandeur of movies like this go re-watch Avengers or DOTM. The movie made perfect sense and it was delivered in style! Great job Ridley Scott!
Best most honest review i have seen so far is this:
"When movies deliver the atmosphere and the grandeur and the precision of something like Prometheus: the flaws in the script DO. NOT. MATTER." - Game over!
The only way to predict the future is to invent it.
Do being able to handle the grandeur and having issues with the script, have to be mutually exclusive?
