Bontesla: Haven't watched it. Is it worth checking out?
One Bad Apple: I am mostly just interested in the deleted scene of the dialogue exchange between David and the Engineer before it goes all BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD and tries to kill everyone.
One Bad Apple: I could understand the film but most of the main characters' actions were pretty facepalm worthy. Overall I liked "Prometheus"I am mostly just interested in the deleted scene of the dialogue exchange between David and the Engineer before it goes all BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD and tries to kill everyone.Everything else I figured out on my own
Fark It: Bontesla: Haven't watched it. Is it worth checking out?Depends. Visually it has some decent space porn. Character/story-wise it's nearly a disaster, with the only bright spots being Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace.
swahnhennessy: I'm too lazy to look up the timeline
Fark It: The plot was easy enough to understand, it was the stupidity level of the characters and choices they make that defies explanation.
Practical_Draconian: Keep the xenos in Aliens universe, and keep Tyrell and his machinations in the Blade Runner universe. Just stop it there Ridley Scott.Otherwise ... is Soldier now part of the Aliens, Predators, and Blade Runner universe, where Western corporate thought goes all the way back to the days of interim Roman Emperor Maximus Decimus Meridius? Is it a world where men wince at the slap of honorable words "Never lie, even if it leads to your death; that is your oath?" And is it a world where Satan rescues Ferris Bueller's girlfriend and tries to disguise her as a goth from unemployed elf boy Tom Cruise and his coeterie of fairies and dwarves?
swahnhennessy: Not as good as the hype allowed, but a solid sci-fi film with nice tie-ins
TyrantII: Pretty much everything. Not that the above were bad, nor entertaining. Just the hype is just that, marketing hype.
Jocundry: Here's my take...all films have plot holes. Good films make you not notice or not care about the plot holes.Prometheus is not one of those films.Not for me at least.
fusillade762: Oh goodie, I get to use the Michael Fassbender Trollface pic again.
Clutch2013: fusillade762: Oh goodie, I get to use the Michael Fassbender Trollface pic again.Holy shiat, is that real?Fassbender looks like he's about to say, "I'm this farking awesome. Problem, biatches?"
logistic: I feel sorry for anyone that couldn't understand this film. I mean...seriously sorry. Like "Gee it must suck to be confined to that wheelchair" sorry. The plot to Wizard of Oz must make your head spin.
TyrantII: Secondary characters were a bit weak, but what do you really expect after ALIEN? That was a B movie made with a flim crew with a AAA imagination.
PsyLord: I too was a bit confused about the whole David sociopath angle. Seriously. If I were ever to go into space, I would destroy/eject any android that is with me. Sorry Data, it's the off switch for you.
Trocadero: The overall philosophical question was legit, and they had some good pieces to explore that question. What if we met God, our creator/creators? What would we ask?
Trocadero: The overall philosophical question was legit, and they had some good pieces to explore that question. What if we met God, our creator/creators? What would we ask? What if He doesn't like us very much, and tries to rip our heads off? David the android lives w/ that every day. They had a great, amazing set up, superb set design, effects, and great use of the 3D cameras. Then they stuck in some of the dumbest characters in sci-fi history, ostensibly scientists/engineers, some incomprehensible set pieces, and ambiguity for ambiguity's sake. They were on the cusp of greatness, and they farked it up. Oh, and they gave away one of the most climatic and important scenes in the whole movie in the farking TV commercials, some of them for Coors farking Lite.But the outline, the purpose of the film were solid. They just screwed up too much of the execution.
Decillion: What were the plot holes that Chinatown, Die Hard and Pulp Fiction made me not care about?
